The Health & Fitness Association's bylaws set forth the guidelines for the structure and governance of the association. They are reviewed regularly and amended as needed by the Board of Directors.

Membership Eligibility Standards

Each member ("Member") has the responsibility to abide by the Association's Membership Eligibility Standards, Code of Conduct, and By-Laws. None of these, however, are intended to create new law or substitute for local, state, or federal law, which will always take precedence. The Health & Fitness Association will assist clubs as much as possible in interpreting these standards, but clubs need to check local and state law, or check with an attorney about any legal questions they may have.

Health & Fitness Association Board Service

The Health & Fitness Association Board of Directors are an experienced, intelligent team of industry leaders. They are chosen to serve the Health & Fitness Association in particular and the fitness industry in general by providing guidance, strategic direction and insight that has lasting global impact.

Each year, two to four Board positions need to be filled as existing board members complete their terms of service. This ensures that seasoned board members sit side by side with new ones, providing a balance of ideas that can propel our association to new heights of success. Applications for the 2024-2028 term will be open soon.
