Industry Innovator Ignites Women’s Fitness with New Business Event & Launches “Piranha Pitch” for Product Innovators

Club Industry was not involved in the creation of this content.

In response to demand, industry-leading innovator Mel Tempest is again paving new pathways for the Australian fitness industry by offering the country’s first IGNITE WOMEN’S FITNESS – a business event for women in the fitness industry. 

“Throughout 2018 women kept asking me to run a women's-specific fitness business event and my philosophy in this industry – and in life for that matter – is to listen and respond accordingly; and so here it is!” says Founder of IGNITE FITNESS business events in Australia.

“This event is about education, meeting like-minded women, putting strategies in place for your business and your future. You’ll learn how to start a business, how to manage human resources, how to negotiate and WIN; you’ll learn what an exit strategy should look like, and how to prepare for superannuation, excellent health and healthier retirement,” explains Tempest. “And I’m inviting women from all different stages of their life, of all abilities, interests and experiences, to get involved in this event; there really are opportunities open to all.”

For the past decade IGNITE TALKS has taken place in the USA. In Australia, its iteration has been unique but it has fast become the event destination where gym business owners, operators and managers are heading to ignite collaboration and achieve mutual success. Australia’s first IGNITE FITNESS event was held in Melbourne last year, and its resounding success and popularity has led Tempest to quickly expand the offering to include IGNITE FITNESS SINGAPORE and IGNITE FITNESS SYDNEY, which will also see the world debut of “Piranha Pitch” where pre-selected individuals pitch their product to the room in just 5 minutes.

THE IGNITE DIFFERENCE

Like all other IGNITE FITNESS formats, IGNITE WOMEN’S FITNESS is also comprised of a series of six five-minute speed presentations from guest speakers and high-profile fitness business leaders, who’ll explore relevant and practical topics to help women enter and succeed in fitness business. This full-day event includes:

  • Six rounds of collaborative ‘speed-dating’
  • Three well-known fitness business guest speakers
  • Ignite talks 
  • Networking opportunities for PTs, gym owners, franchised clubs and fitness suppliers.
