Code of Ethics

The Academy

Australian Boxing & Fitness Academy has a strong commitment to creating a healthier and fitter Australian community. Part of that commitment is to assist in improving the standard in delivery of exercise by fitness professionals to their clients through specialised courses and workshops.

We are also proud to be a part of the development of Box’Tag, an entertaining, competitive, yet low-risk contact sport. The concept has been developed to make boxing safer and allow people of all levels to experience the thrill of competing in a boxing ring with minimal fear of injury.

Australian Boxing & Fitness Academy prides itself on its ethics and professionalism.

Our Code of Ethics outlines expected standards of conduct that reflect our role as leading fitness professionals.

The Code clearly describes the behaviour expected of all our staff, volunteers and associates (this includes fitness professionals who obtain accreditation through the ABFA). It places the following obligations on staff and volunteers:

1. Respect for people
2. Integrity in  all work practices
3. Loyalty
4. Proper diligence
5. Compliance with the law
6. Maintenance of confidentiality

We and our employees embrace the following beliefs, practices, and assurances:

Mission Statement
Our focus and objective is to create World Class Trainers.  We are committed to ensuring that Trainers have the knowledge and skill level to maintain the science and integrity of the sport of boxing and deliver safe and appropriate boxing for fitness exercise programs to their clients. We are seeking to create a healthier and fitter Australian community.

We always conduct our own services honestly and honourably, and expect our clients and associates to do the same. Our advice, strategic assistance and the methods imparted through our training, take proper account of ethical considerations, together with the protection and enhancement of the moral position of our clients and associates.

We are committed to maintaining the highest degree of integrity in all our dealings with potential, current and past clients, both in terms of normal commercial confidentiality, and the protection of all personal information received in the course of providing the business services concerned. We, as exercise professionals, will safeguard confidential information relating to clients in accordance with privacy laws.

Duty of care
Our instruction, tuition and advice will always conform to relevant legislations. We believe that all businesses and organisations, including Australian Boxing & Fitness Academy, should avoid causing any adverse effect on the human rights of people, the local and wider environments, and the well-being of society at large.
Quality assurance
We maintain the quality of what we do through constant ongoing review with our clients, of all aims, activities, outcomes and the effectiveness of tuition. We encourage regular review meetings and ongoing professional development to ensure our standards are held in the highest regard.

Professional conduct
We conduct all of our activities professionally and with integrity. We take great care to ensure the deliveries of our programs are conducted with the utmost professionalism and provide our clients with a high standard of tuition. We are never influenced by improper practice and do not condone such practices within our organisation.

Equality and discrimination
We always strive to be fair and objective in our actions, and we are never influenced in our decisions, actions or recommendations by issues of gender, race, creed, colour, age or personal disability.

Fees & Charges
Our fees are always competitive for what we provide, which is high quality boxing and fitness tuition, together with the highest possible standards of service.

Intellectual property and moral rights
We retain the moral rights in, and ownership of, all intellectual property that we create unless agreed otherwise in advance with our clients. In return we respect the moral and intellectual copyright vested in our clients' intellectual property.
