Associate Member of the Year Award - Visual Fitness Planner

The Associate Member of the Year Award is presented annually to recognize an IHRSA Member for their significant contributions to the advancement of the health club industry, as well as their support of IHRSA, its members and its mission through program and event participation, advertising, and sponsorship.

Visual Fitness Planner was selected as this year's honoree due to their passion for the industry and commitment towards helping club operators better use technology to solve their needs and grow revenue. 

State of the Industry

You’re figuring out a way to make people healthier and happier without them becoming members,”  said IHRSA President and CEO Joe Moore during the "State of the Industry" address. “There was a time when revenue streams only came from members—that’s not the case anymore. The more of these customers and consumers that you can help, the bigger the industry gets. So congratulations on that—you’re doing one fantastic job.”



McKeown Keynote

Greg McKeown, CEO of THIS Inc., told attendees how "essentialism" can help them become more productive by being more selective in his keynote address, sponsored by Technogym.
