Boston  January 3, 2018 IHRSA, The International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association, is pleased to announce Myzone is the 2018 Associate Member of the Year.

The Associate Member of the Year Award is presented annually to recognize an IHRSA Associate Member for their significant contributions to the advancement of the health club industry, as well as their support of IHRSA, its members, and its mission through program and event participation, advertising, and sponsorship.

Myzone, an IHRSA member since 1997, was selected as this year's honoree due to its outstanding achievements, innovations and support of the health and fitness industry, its continued investment in leading-edge technology, and its unwavering support of IHRSA and its members.

"Myzone has demonstrated its strong commitment to the industry and IHRSA time and time again,” said Joe Moore, IHRSA's president and CEO. “They are leaders in the technology sector and are truly helping club operators deliver measurable results for their members as well as healthier bottom-lines for their businesses.”

“In 2011, wearable technology was not a widely recognized term, but that has since changed. Myzone's technology is now available in 5,000 clubs and 64 countries, which demonstrates the impact it is having on the marketplace and the industry,” said Dave Wright, CEO and creator of Myzone. “Myzone is honoured to receive this award because it truly highlights the hard work that went into making our ideas a reality. We look forward to working with IHRSA for many years to come and hope that our product will encourage more people to pursue and achieve their fitness goals.”

The Associate Member of the Year Award will be presented during IHRSA 2018, the 37th IHRSA Annual International Convention & Trade Show in San Diego, CA, March 21-24.
