Why should you vote for Chantal Brodrick as a AusREP Member for Fitness Australia?
What an incredible opportunity for every AusREP in Australia to be represented on the Fitness Australia Board of Directors. As a candidate, I hope you will consider me to represent you. Let me share my story and thoughts.
I have been an AusREP for 11 years, which has included working as a contract PT, mobile PT and Group Fitness Instructor and I understand the challenges of sustaining a successful career in our industry – both full time and part time.
My corporate life prior to fitness will add business acumen to my nomination. I worked in senior sales and marketing roles in media for over 15 years.
Adding to my value a your representative is my role as the host of the world’s number one business podcast for the fitness industry, The Fitness Business Podcast, I have gained insights into hundreds of international fitness facilities and connect with the industry’s leading business leaders. My vision is to support long term career opportunities for fitness professionals which in turn will increase physical activity participation – only 15% of adults aged 18-64 meet Australia’s physical activity guidelines. I believe increasing participation includes:
- Working with various Federal, State and Local governments to help improve education about the benefits and importance of physical activity;
- Identifying and supporting key health-based events around the country; and
- Improving relationships with allied health and medical professionals so they are confident to refer patients to fitness centers and registered trainers.
Supporting long term career opportunities for AusREPs includes:
- Reviewing business education requirements during and post certification; and
- Ensuring business skills and experience receive appropriate recognition for re-registration.
Every AusREP has received an email from TrueVote with an individual link to vote.
I’m passionate about serving on the Board of Directors for Fitness Australia and would be grateful for your support.
