The Australian Institute of Fitness (AIF) has launched the next phase of its professional development offering –
Network – which uses mobile-friendly technology to enable CEC and short courses to be completed anywhere, at
any time.

Leading the way in professional development for the fitness industry for more than 30 years, Network long
operated alongside its sister company, AIF, to look after the ongoing education needs of qualified fitness

Two years ago, AIF integrated Network into its industry offerings, allowing it to evolve into an education
provider that can both launch fitness and massage careers through its highly regarded industry certifications,
and then support their ongoing success with professional development. And now, says AIF’s CEO, Steve Pettit,
through the evolution of Network, ongoing fitness education just got better.

“The new Network offering marks a monumental shift in the ongoing education landscape, moving away from the
old-style membership model still offered by some outfits, towards a flexible subscription service that
delivers incredible choice, control and value to fitness professionals by putting premium fitness education at their

Offering the most diverse range of courses in the industry, from nutrition and strength training, to functional
anatomy and women’s health, an ELITE subscription with Network provides unlimited access to over 60
courses that you can study whenever and wherever suits you – all for one low monthly price. Plus, with new
courses added every month, there will always be something new to learn.”

In addition, AIF’s Network is shaking up the sector by also offering a FREE subscription option that includes
access to content as well as 12 CEC’s worth of online study annually – which represents a zero-cost route to
earning all the credits needed for registration with AUSactive (formerly Fitness Australia) or other industry
registration bodies.

Network uses AIF’s customised intelligent learning system, IGNITE, to provide a personalised learning platform that
is mobile friendly and can be used on-the-go (online or offline) to fit in around you and your lifestyle. Can’t put
aside three hours at the weekend to sit at a computer and study? “No worries”, says Pettit; “With Network you can
grab 15 minutes between clients or in the coffee queue to access courses on your phone or tablet.”

Whether you are looking to further your personal knowledge or need to earn credits for your professional
development, Network’s extensive and constantly growing library of courses can help you stay at the forefront of
the ever-evolving fitness industry and reach your full potential as a fitness professional. With a subscription to
Network, the upskilling possibilities are endless.
