Chuck Runyon, CEO and Co-founder
One of the first decisions I made before opening Aquafit was to sign up for an IHRSA membership. I wanted to ensure that we set high standards from the very beginning. I was aware of the important role that IHRSA played, and wanted to become recognized, internationally, as an accredited health and fitness center.
