Over my 20+ years in the industry and just as many from others in our organization, between us we have owned supplement shops, gyms, sports stores, pt studios, and have all competed many times in lots of sports, including bodybuilding, weighlifting, sprinting and lots lots more.
Within the network that has come to form LaFemme, we have gathered as many contacts as we could from, our own, friends who still own businesses with contact lists etc and contacted people that would be interested in what we have to offer.
Our focus is to make our organization as large as possible, and have already had interest from overseas. We will definitely be looking to expand internationally as soon as we can.
But we intend on doing this, and obviously expanding around Australia, by providing as much as we can in the way of prizes for competitors, rather than just the obligatory trophy and title.
The great new thing that LaFemme provides is the opportunity for everyone to compete at a national event.
Obviously other federations have a scaling process for an athlete to gain entry to a national event, by placing at a lower event.
But as our concept dictates, we are not a federation of any sort. We are an organization providing what is missing out there.
And if we didn’t do things differently, then we would just be another federation.
We are looking to introduce new people at high/professional levels in other sports to ours at our events, and ours to theirs. We believe that creating new interest from other genres of sport will greatly benefit Australian women’s sport in general.
We will have guest speakers, and seminars, social fitness events and much, much more to keep everyone looking forward to more than just 1 or 2 comps a year.
Any ideas that you have or any other competitors, friends, family, spectators etc have, we look forward to hearing, to help develop our concept and keep moving forward.
I hope that is enough info to get you started. Feel free to contact us anytime again.
Did anyone else get an email? Does anyone else know the people behind this and what do you think about it all?
