Education and News For The Fitness Industry
FILEX is always an amazing experience filled with opportunities and possibilities. I first started going to FILEX in the 90s and like so many delegates, the sessions I tended to choose reflected where I was at in my career.
I like to attend the whole event – from business summit through to the 3 day convention. It’s the one big annual fitness event that provides such value.

This was my first Filex for a couple of years as I have been out of the fitness industry for some time. However during my previous 20 years in the industry I attended Filex on a regular basis.
I attended the business summit this year because JT and Chantal were hosting. I consider them my teammates through Active Management and the Industry Leaders Roundtable and I wanted to support them. I knew they would be entertaining and great hosts.

Why do I attend Filex? Well, ever gone without coffee for days when you are used to consuming 3 cups a day? That’s kind of how it is for me.
I have attended Filex for most of the years I have been in the fitness industry. It has been a must do in the last 12 years since I have been a fitness business owner.
Whilst Ben and I have been in the fitness business for over 9 years, FILEX 2017 was only our 3rd convention. We look back to before we found FILEX and think, ‘were we living under a rock’?
Each and every health and fitness industry event around the world has something special to offer and they all bring tremendous value to their attendees, however FILEX remains my favourite on the calendar for bringing all aspects of our industry together.
Last week I spoke with Todd Durkin about empowering your team for outstanding results.
