IHRSA Club Membership Benefits

For more than 35 years, IHRSA has been the leading provider of information essential to the success of health and fitness clubs. IHRSA membership helps clubs grow membership and community outreach, promote the benefits of exercising in a club, protect club operations and make meaningful networking connections.

IHRSA member benefits keep clubs well-informed, on top of trends, and in line with industry benchmarks. IHRSA members are industry leaders, who share their influence, innovation, and proven expertise through IHRSA's education, industry events, best practices, and Club Business International (CBI) magazine.



The most successful health clubs in the world have one thing in common: they meticulously track performance metrics and compare them with those of their peers.

Doing so gives them a clear picture of how their business is performing, and allows them to think outside the box and identify growth opportunities.

IHRSA's research publications are the most authoritative reports on health club performance indicators, including revenue, retention, and member demographics. Members receive deep discounts on essential resources.
