inspiration for extraordinary fitness careers


Issue 13


2023 is off to a great start at FITREC HQ – We hope all is going well for you


Recognising the recruitment challenges many employers currently face, we’ve added a ‘Recruitment Special Feature’ to provide insight and information that’ll help you with sourcing, onboarding and retention of team members.

We’re excited by the number of live events that are on offer this year, all over Australia and the Pacific, and we can’t wait to attend and reconnect with so many of you in 3D!

Of course, my team and I remain keen to receive your feedback on what you’d like to read, watch and see in future issues of this eMag, so we can continue to evolve it into your go-to resource in the quest to establish and maintain an extraordinary fitness career.  Drop us a line – anytime – to share your feedback with us.

We look forward to hearing from you.
