Club Business International

Every month, IHRSA publishes Club Business International (CBI), the health club industry’s leading trade publication. CBI features industry news and stories on successful practices in sales, marketing, operations, and programming from around the world. The wide range of areas covered each month can be as relevant to front desk staff as to club owners and managers. According to a recent survey, 82% of readers are either directly responsible for, or have influence on, their clubs’ purchasing decisions regarding fitness equipment, services, and supplies. And 78% said they visited an advertiser’s website.
