IHRSA has launched the Active & Safe Commitment, an initiative to reaffirm the health club industry’s unyielding dedication to safety at this time when exercise has never been more important to global health.
Developed by industry experts in accordance with the foremost public health guidance, the Active & Safe Commitment serves three main purposes:
- To demonstrate the industry’s united commitment to safety for members, guests, and staff;
- To provide health club members and guests with well-founded peace of mind during club visits; and
- To reassure policymakers and public health officials that health clubs should not be shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic, but rather should be relied upon as safe environments for exercise that can serve as responsible, credible, and effective partners for reducing the pandemic’s catastrophic toll on physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
