QFit Functional Movement Summit

To SURVIVE or to THRIVE? How do you choose to live? 

Life is unpredictable, unstable, chaotic. It’s lived in multiple planes of motion, it’s dynamic and integrated. With more than 650 muscles, 900 ligaments and 1000s of tendons all connected by a fascial network, there’s no denying the human body was designed to move. 

To move is to survive; but to move well is to thrive. So how do you want to live? 

The QFit Functional Movement Summit brings together some of the Australian fitness industry’s best and brightest educators for two days of knowledge and practice on proficient, purposeful movement training. 

From this jam-packed weekend you’ll take away the skills and know-how to coach your clients and participants through powerfully dynamic, proprioceptively-rich sessions, to produce unequivocal results.

NEW name, NEW format

This year, the QFit event welcomes a brand new format. We heard what you said, and as a result we've moved away from a traditional 'mini conference' format to provide a more in-depth summit that focuses on one key area: movement – and all the factors that influence its optimisation.
