The AM Announcement

The massive news for Active Management and me is that in 2020 I will be working for REX Roundtables in the US!  This year I will be chairing the:

  • Sales Managers Roundtable
  • Personal Trainers Roundtable
  • Marketing Managers Roundtable

And later in the year taking on a new Roundtable for US fitness businesses.  That’s 4 new roundtables and several trips to the US.

This is a huge opportunity and responsibility that I am really looking forward to.  Thank you to Eddie and Will from REX Roundtables and good luck to Mary on your journey!

It will not impact my Australian and New Zealand Roundtables. The various Australian and New Zealand Industry Leaders Roundtable are taking applications now:

  • Australian Club Owners Roundtable
  • NSW Personal Trainers Roundtable
  • New Zealand Fitness Business Roundtable

Message me now or drop me an email: to find out more. If you’re based in the US, then REX Roundtables is available for you to join. Contact Eddie Tock – Europeans contact Fausto di Guilio –

Final Thought

Using the data you already have, why not identify your best members.  Identify:

  • Which sex of your members stay the longest? Or
  • What age group of members stay the longest? Or
  • What suburb do your members live that stay the longest? Or
  • A combination of all the above.
  • Or even all of the above for members who spend the most?

When you identify these members in your own database then you can target them with your social media ads both with placement and a very specific message!

Start doing this and you’ll attract better qualified leads and higher quality members – based on your own data!
