Get Active! is a great resource for club members

It’s all about the Olympics these days, isn’t in? It would be difficult to find someone who doesn’t have Olympic Fever!

IHRSA’s publication, Get Active! - available to members and guests of its clubs - highlights the many benefits to exercise, the services of IHRSA, provides lifestyles and diet tips, and more.

The fall issue will, out in September, features Olympian Christine Rampone on the cover, as well as an in-depth story on her soccer career, being a parent, training and more.

This marks two consecutive issues with US Olympians. The summer issue had track & field star, and President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition member, Allyson Felix featured. She answered questions from whether London would be her final Olympics (she is in her third at the age of 26) to her involvement in the President’s Council, which IHRSA is a partner.

For the Fall 2012 issue, to be published in September, a club or company that buys at least 300 copies can have a logo and contact information on the front of the magazine. Here is your chance to personalize the magazine for visitors to your club. Deadline is Aug. 15.

The purpose of Get Active! is to:

  • Reinforce the reader's decision to belong to a health club, by highlighting the many health and physiological benefits of exercise.
  • Increase awareness of the many services IHRSA clubs offer (such as personal training, group exercise, yoga or Pilates).
  • Provide useful lifestyle, diet and workout tips to make exercise fun and rewarding for everyone.
  • Educate a grass-roots movement of fitness conscious consumers to support governmental initiatives that encourage regular exercise.
