Over 40 fitness industry professionals from across the globe volunteered to help IHRSA develop an easy-to-use resource for sharing best practices on running a fitness facility.
These volunteers are some of the top minds from health clubs, gyms, studios, community fitness centers, recreation complexes, and medical providers of all shapes and sizes. In early 2020, they formed the IHRSA Standards Headlight Team, which focused on developing and launching the Active & Safe Commitment.
Subgroups of the headlight team focused on different areas to identify and share information on over 25 topics that are most useful to the fitness industry right now.
"The IHRSA Playbook for Best Practice Guidelines will be a key resource for fitness facility operators around the globe as we continue our recovery and once again thrive as an industry," says Aaron Moore Director of Operations at VIDA Fitness and IHRSA Board Member. "We encourage everyone to use this playbook as a best practices guide to perfect your existing systems and consider developing additional services, amenities, or profit centers that can make your facility even more relevant in your market."
The Playbook for Best Practice Guidelines will be a downloadable resource full of tools and templates for fitness professionals who want to learn more about a specific topic.
