With Joel joining the Aquadome team we asked him a few questions to get to know him a bit more!
Tell us about yourself…
A bit about me, I’m a husband and a dad to a cheeky 6 year old first and foremost. I have been in the fitness industry for 2 decades, firstly in facility management before turning my attention to writing policy and industry standards for Fitness Australia the Fitness Industry Association. Most recently I have completed work with the World Health Organisation (WHO) in Geneva, with a focus on increasing physical activity globally.
I have come to BlueFit as I believe in the ethics, growth philosophy and long term goals of the organisation. Further to this I am currently completing my MBA in Sport Management at Deakin University.
