About Network

Nigel ChampionAustralian Fitness Network - or 'Network' as it is known - was launched in 1987 to service the needs of those working in the fitness industry. Established by myself, Greg Hurst and Dr Garry Egger as the 'Fitness Leader Network', in 1999 we became ‘Australian Fitness Network’, a name reflecting the expansion of the industry from consisting purely of fitness instructors, to encompassing all areas of fitness, from facility owners and managers, to gym instructors and personal trainers.

Today, Australian Fitness Network is proud of its mission statement to be the leading source of information, education and events in fitness. We strive to provide you with innovative, inspiring and valuable membership benefits to help you remain motivated, focused and challenged in your fitness career.
