With FILEX, The Fitness Industry Convention, poised to move to a new location in 2014, the team at Australian Fitness Network is embracing change – and urging you to do the same!


In 2014, Australian Fitness Network’s flagship FILEX convention takes inspiration from the words of an individual who knows a thing or two about change, the great Nelson Mandela: ‘Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.’

As education serves as the catalyst for moving from the old, to the new, FILEX will provide you with the means to bring about real change in the lives of your clients, members and participants. With over 250 sessions delivered by the industry’s thought leaders and renowned educators, you will have access to the widest variety of topics covering the latest developments in fitness at the largest industry event in the southern hemisphere.

If your focus is on expanding your repertoire of business-building tactics then you’ll want to sign up for sessions presented by the remarkable Michael Port, who heads up a stellar field of business presenters including the innovative Nils Vesk.

“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.”

The BIG names in personal and small group training are also coming to town, so you’ll have the opportunity to learn from industry heavyweights Todd Durkin, Rodney Corn, Chuck Wolf, Ian O’Dwyer and Michol Dalcourt, to name just a few.

If you instruct group exercise and mind body classes then you won’t want to miss the brilliant Petra Kolber, Julz Arney, Amy Dixon, Steve Boedt and Misty Tripoli, who will be leading the charge of new ideas for the group ex studio.

The always fascinating Paul Taylor will also be delivering his trademark thought-provoking sessions and the legendary Len Kravitz will be sharing his vast training, nutritional and fat loss know-how, along with Joanna McMillan, Matt O’Neill and Susie Burrell.

And with well over 150 presenters from all over the world heading to Melbourne, that’s just the tip of the FILEX iceberg.

In addition to the FILEX program, you can also opt to attend two full days of Les Mills Super Workshops, Dance-A-Palooza and the Australian Fitness & Health Expo – and receive 15 CECs for your trouble!

Moving the FILEX convention to Melbourne marks the biggest physical change in the event’s illustrious 20-year history. So, not only will FILEX be encouraging you to embrace change, the team behind the event will be doing just that and using these fresh challenges and opportunities to elevate the convention to even greater heights.

So, join your fellow fitness industry leaders from around Australia and New Zealand in Melbourne next April for a weekend that will give you the tools and knowledge to be the best that you can be.
