New fitness code published

The Fair Trading (Fitness Industry Code) Regulations 2020 (WA) (that contain the new Fitness Industry Code) were published on 29 September 2020. This mandatory code comes into effect on 1 July 2021.

This public consultation paper invited feedback and/or suggestions from any consumer, fitness services provider, industry association, or other interested stakeholder on:

  1. current and emerging issues and types of fitness services being offered in the marketplace, and whether there is a need for mandatory industry specific regulation in Western Australia; and whether it should apply to the same or new additional types of service providers and fitness activities as those regulated by the 2018 Interim Code;
  2. whether you have experienced a problem as a consumer with joining a fitness centre or gym, purchasing services from a fitness instructor or personal trainer, the terms of your membership agreement, and terminating your membership agreement – and how your problems were resolved;
  3. whether you have experienced a problem as a fitness services provider with transactions with consumers, terms of membership agreements, consumers terminating their membership agreements – and how your problems were resolved; and
  4. whether you believe the 2018 Interim Code provides appropriate mandatory regulation of the fitness industry, or how it can be improved.
