The Global Health & Fitness Alliance (GHFA), under the leadership of Chair Andrea Bell and Vice Chair Richard Beddie, is pleased to announce the appointment of McCall Gosselin, senior vice president of communications & corporate responsibility at Planet Fitness, to its Advisory Council. McCall replaces Anna Henwood, former chief marketing officer of Les Mills International (LMI).
Along with welcoming McCall, the GHFA wants to thank Anna for her service. While Anna has since left for a position outside of the industry, she completed important work for the GHFA from day one. As well as being a significant contributor to the GHFA communications efforts, she was instrumental in securing the support of LMI in carrying out the first stage of efficacy research for the GHFA.
The addition of a key Planet Fitness executive to the GHFA Advisory Council underscores how the industry’s largest global chains are utilizing important resources to help the GHFA establish the health and fitness industry as a key contributor within the healthcare continuum. The Boston-based McCall began her term on July 1, 2022.
