    Whether it’s analyzing consumer trends, compiling best practices, promoting active lifestyles, or defending the interests of gym owners, no trade association does a better job than IHRSA. And not only do fitness professionals benefit from IHRSA, anyone who cares about health and fitness does so as well.

    One of the first decisions I made before opening Aquafit was to sign up for an IHRSA membership. I wanted to ensure that we set high standards from the very beginning. I was aware of the important role that IHRSA played, and wanted to become recognized, internationally, as an accredited health and fitness center.

    The fitness industry is always evolving, and it’s often hard to determine if something new is just a fad or something worth investing in... One effective way to do so is by turning to IHRSA, a great resource for learning about industry best practices and for developing a network of contacts.

    We owe a great deal of our success to IHRSA. One of the secrets of success is to constantly hang out with people who know more than you do. If you’re the smartest guy in the room, you’re in the wrong room. With IHRSA, you’re never the smartest guy in the room.
