“This marked a very successful return to in-person events in China,” notes John Holsinger, IHRSA’s Director, Asia-Pacific, who delivered a virtual update to attendees at the 10th Annual ChinaFit / IHRSA China Management Forum on the state of the global health club industry.
In addition to Holsinger, virtual presenters included IHRSA board member Alan Leach, CEO of Dublin’s West Wood Clubs, as well as Luke Carlson, CEO of Discover Strength in Minneapolis, Minnesota, who will join the IHRSA Board of Directors on July 1. In-person presenters from China rounded out the agenda, with Gold Medal Stories presentations from 14 leading CEO operators on the main stage, supplemented with breakout sessions for yoga, youth, aquatics, and facilities.
Will’s Fitness, represented by founder and CEO Will Wang, kindly served as the event’s local host. LeFit, represented by CEO Han Wei, will serve as the host of the next event, which is planned for later this year in Hangzhou.
