inspiration for extraordinary fitness careers


Issue 8


Hey everyone

Our hearts go out to our fellow Melbourne-ites, who are currently experiencing another lockdown. We appreciate how difficult this time continues to be for everyone, and we urge you to reach out for support whenever you need it.

FITREC was born from a recruitment need that we  identified in the industry (see page 8), so in this issue we’re getting back to our roots by shining a light on all things recruitment. This is because in the wake of COVID, we’ve seen many professionals exit the industry for roles less affected by lockdowns. Now, more than ever, fitness employers need to be on-point with their recruitment efforts.

We’d love to hear what you think about this issue and encourage you to share your feedback by emailing
