MEDIA RELEASE: FILEX Convention announce Emma Barry as second keynote speaker!

Emma Barry to reveal to FILEX delegates what will happen NEXT in fitness

The FILEX Convention, Australasia’s leading fitness convention, has Emma Barry – a published author and consultant to boutiques, budgets, fit-tech start-ups and club-in-a-club – delivering their keynote address on Saturday 2 May on what is to happen next in fitness with a deep dive into what will shape the future of the industry including global trends and tech.

“Emma Barry is fluent in what happens NEXT in fitness. She’s always been on the cutting edge of fitness herself, and now we’re lucky enough to have her share what’s in her crystal-ball with us!” says a FILEX Convention spokesperson. “Emma’s a founding member of Les Mills International, former Director of Programming for Equinox, and consultant to the fastest growing value-based chain in Europe, Basic-Fit. She has inhaled senior roles in group fitness programming, product development, global training and people & culture.”

The NZ-born, LA based sought-after speaker will be presenting four other business and leadership focussed sessions including a presentation at the FILEX Business Summit on Thursday 30 April 2020. From Building a Fierce People Culture to 8 Entrepreneurial Hustles, Emma will cover key ground for those wanting to be in the know when it comes to the latest and greatest tips and news on the industry.

And in a first for FILEX, Emma will also be hosting the FILEX webinar in January. Emma will be uncovering industry insights and offering a taster of what delegates can expect at her industry leading Convention sessions. To take part in the complimentary webinar delegates are directed to simply subscribe to the FILEX newsletter at www.filex.com.au with key webinar details to be emailed out in the coming weeks.

FILEX 2020 is set to be the freshest one yet, with the announcement of three keynote speakers for the first time in the Convention’s history. The third keynote speaker is yet to be announced but organisers say “as per the 2019 event delegates can be sure to have their socks blown off with a closing keynote to leave you on a high and motivated to hit the ground running the moment you leave the event”.

In addition, brand-new to FILEX in 2020, will be the FILEX Big Workout. Organisers say the Saturday morning event will be an adrenalin pumping, endorphin releasing, massive smile creator rolled into an hour of power before the second day of the Convention commences. Delegates can expect to join FILEX’s best coaches and trainers using the latest and greatest functioning training equipment and tools so they can experience new ways of training and coaching their crew.

Early bird registrations are selling fast, with only 83 left to sell delegates are making the most of the payment plan option available. A FILEX spokesperson said “our payment plan allows delegates to secure their ticket earlier before the price rise and allows them to pay off their registration in manageable instalments”.

The three-day event, powered by Fitness Australia, offers 12 CECs and begins on Friday 1st and runs through until Sunday 3rd May and is co-located with the Fitness Show B2B. The event is preceded by pre-convention summits on Thursday 30 April with delegates having the option to choose from either the Business Summit or The Ultimate Trainer Summit. The trainer summit attracts an additional 5 CECs for 2020 which is an increase from the previous year.

Nuts for Life is Australia’s voice for the vital role nuts play in good health and nutrition.

They help busy health professionals stay up-to-date on evidence-based news and research on nuts, sharing why eating a handful (or 30g) of nuts every day is essential to the health of all Australians.

Regular nut consumption offers major health benefits, being linked with reduced all-cause mortality, and a lower risk of dying from heart disease and cancer – which claim the lives of too many Australians. And decades of research shows eating nuts is not linked with weight gain.

Nuts for Life is funded by the Australian nut industry and the Australian Government, through Hort Innovation Australia’s ‘Hort Frontiers Healthy Food Fund’.

For over 40 years we have been the benchmark for speedballs and punching bags for competitions and gyms around the world. We are positioned at the top of the market for quality and performance and our products are widely used in gyms around Australia and very affordable!

Australian Avocados are currently working with the health professional community to amplify the benefits of including more avocado in the everyday diet.

This project has been funded by Hort Innovation, using the avocado research and development levy and contributions from the Australian Government. Hort Innovation is the grower owned, not-for-profit research and development corporation for Australian horticulture.
