If you’re feeling a little round in the belly, you’re not alone. According to an article in MedPage Today, Americans saw a steady weight gain of 1.5 pounds every month once stay-at-home orders went into effect.

Brent also encourages health clubs to participate in IHRSA's annual Global Report, shares a new tool to calculate COVID-19 risk factors, and welcomes four new members to the IHRSA Board of Directors.
