Task 2: Report and Presentation

 

General instructions:

This assessment task requires you to use the simulated business Bounce Fitness and its additional Resources. You can access these on Canvas page for Task 2.

 

Case Study

Margaret House, CEO of Bounce Fitness and the Board of Directors are keen to have the four Centres registered with Fitness Australia (http://www.fitness.org.au). They feel that standards required to be met as a registered fitness centre would not only ensure the credibility of the organisation in the eyes of the public but provide goals for the Centre Managers and teams.

 

Registration will require meeting the Code of Conduct for the state in which each Centre is located and ensuring that all trainers meet, or immediately undertake training to meet certain standards.  Information about the registration can be obtained by going to the Fitness Australia website and clicking on the Registration and Policies and Guidelines tabs. The Codes of Conduct for each State can be found on the Policies and Guidelines tab, Business Principles and Guidelines section, if you scroll down the page.

 

The minimum educational qualification required by Bounce Fitness for all trainers is the Certificate III in Fitness Instructing and all trainers must hold this to continue to work as a trainer of classes and individual clients. At this point in time, this has not been consistently applied. In Cairns all are qualified, in Brisbane two need the basic training, two also in Sydney and in Melbourne there is one. It is intended under the change management initiative that all trainers, once they have completed the basic training will continue to pursue further training, the Certificate IV and Diploma, annually as personal development.

 

Bounce Fitness will pay for the training fees and other incidentals such as textbook requirements and provide one paid hour per week for study leave. Bounce Fitness will also reimburse travel and accommodation for compulsory study attendance sessions.

 

It is expected that the change management process will be smooth if adequate measures are taken and the process is well managed. The major resistance will come from the five trainers who do not have this qualification and have learned through experience. They do not feel that a qualification is necessary. They have indicated that they are not keen to participate in the further training initiative.

 

If the whole standardisation process is not managed carefully, there is a potential for dissatisfaction and all Centres may not comply with the standardised procedures. This is a major concern for the Executive; hence your recommendations are crucial.

 

You have been asked to investigate the feasibility, benefits and practicality of entering such a relationship with Fitness Australia and make recommendations. Prepare a report for submission to the CEO and Board.
