Sport and Fitness

Our lawyers view the broadening impact of registered fitness instructors and personal trainers in everyday Australian life as vitally important to the healthcare industry. Our team helps fitness professionals understand their roles and responsibilities in an increasingly litigious and regulated environment.

As a fitness professional, you risk being on the receiving end of a complaint by a dissatisfied client, through a compensation claim, or a complaint to a government authority, or Fitness Australia.
