AUSactive formerly Fitness Australia and the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Active Living (ISEAL) at Victoria University have established a collaborative and innovative project that will provide evidence and promote best practice for the Health and Fitness Industry in Australia.
This work will build upon research initiatives being conducted in the United Kingdom, delivering regular industry-related research reviews and events, as well as building the evidence base for the effectiveness of structured exercise programs delivered by the fitness industry.
The FIT & WELL Study (FITness industry, public health and WELLbeing study)
This study will help us quantify the impact and effectiveness of fitness industry services in Australia. It is only with evidence such as this that AUSactive can pave the way for the fitness industry to be a recognised and integrated partner in public health and wellbeing strategies.
