AUSactive appoints One Playground founder Justin Ashley to new Career Ambassador role

The next generation of health and fitness industry professionals, innovators, and business owners will have access to invaluable leadership and mentoring resources with the appointment of One Playground Founder and CEO Justin Ashley as the first AUSactive Career Ambassador.

The newly created AUSactive Career Ambassador position will support the student membership network and provide education, guidance and networking opportunities. Alongside raising awareness about the critical role, AUSactive plays in the industry.

Justin Ashley said he was thrilled to be appointed the inaugural Career Ambassador. He hopes his story of high school misfit to Australian Young Entrepreneur of the Year will inspire a new wave of industry talent.

“This role is an incredible opportunity to lead and inspire the next generation of health and fitness professionals. My aim in the role is to encourage people of any age to do what they love. I want to see people have meaningful, viable and long-term careers in the fitness industry,” Mr Ashley said.

“Following my passion after school despite not being made for a “traditional” classroom is the best choice I could have made. The fitness industry has given me so much. I am so grateful to be in a position where I can help others get involved and thrive. There's no better industry, as far as I'm concerned; our job is literally to change people's lives.”

In addition to working with students, Mr Ashley will also work with business members to help them improve career path opportunities within their businesses.

AUSactive CEO Barrie Elvish said the new role was focused on strengthening the connections with student members by providing career insights to inspire the next generation of fitness professionals.

“The Career Ambassador is the authoritative voice of the AUSactive student membership community dedicated to providing education and advancing careers within our sector,” Mr Elvish said.

“We are thrilled to have Justin Ashley onboard as our first Ambassador, his ability to connect with people and inspire them through his own experiences is invaluable.”

Justin will kick off his role with a webinar on Tuesday 17th October at 6:30pm AEDT. To register for the From Passion to Profession: Launching Your Career in Active Health webinar click here.
