Many in fitness industry affected by 9/11

Everyone knows what they were doing when the planes flew into the World Trade Centers in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001. It was a day thousands of people perished at the hands of terrorists' heinous acts.

Among those who died were health club members and employees. And scores of health and fitness facilities in the city provided shelter, showers and a place to rest for the thousands of displaced and workers cleaning up the aftermath.

Three years ago IHRSA looked back at those who were directly affected to see how they were doing, and what had changed, in the 10 years since 9/11.

We are running that package of stories again. Check out Ten Years Later: How 9/11 Changed the Health Club Industry Forever.
