AIPT and Invictus Australia team up to empower veterans through fitness education. 

The Australian Institute of Personal Trainers (AIPT) and Invictus Australia proudly announce a new national partnership aimed at empowering veterans through the power of fitness education. This collaboration expands Invictus Australia’s offerings to veterans and their families by bolstering the physical and mental wellbeing of Australia’s ex-servicemen and women, providing them with opportunities for personal growth, mentorship and community connection through the fitness industry. 

As part of this partnership, AIPT will provide specialised fitness education and mentorship to participants from Invictus Australia’s network. Through tailored training programs and expert guidance from AIPT’s extensive industry network, participants will have the opportunity to qualify as Personal Trainers and Group Instructors, equipping them with the skills and knowledge to thrive in the fitness industry.
