These 22 individuals—the tip, as it were, of the industry’s talent iceberg—were nominated by the readers of CBI as part of IHRSA’s Rising Stars initiative, and, subsequently, selected by members of the association’s staff.

Does Your Fitness Company Have a Rising Star?

If you’re an IHRSA member and your company has a “rising star,” we want to know! 

What’s “IHRSA Rising Stars”? 

The “IHRSA Rising Stars” initiative will recognize individuals, 35 years old or younger, who have made a significant impact on their business and/or the global fitness industry. Basically, we want to bolster young talent. 

Why Should I Nominate Someone? 

Recognition and exposure! A deserving group of individuals, selected by the IHRSA and CBI editorial teams, will be profiled in the March 2017 issue of Club Business International and featured on IHRSA’s social media. 

What Else Do I Need to Know? 

To qualify, the nominee must be under 36 and an IHRSA member (or associate member) in good standing on March 1, 2017. Not sure of their age? No problem—we'll confirm their age when we contact them.

Okay, I’m Convinced. Is the Nomination Process Tedious? 

Nope! It’s easy and will only take a few minutes, we promise. Just tell us some basic information about the person and write a few words explaining why you think they deserve recognition. And if you can, provide two references. That’s it! 

Read the criteria and nominate someone for consideration. Applications must be received by October 31, 2016.
