IHRSA's research publications are the most authoritative reports on health club performance indicators, including revenue, retention, and member demographics. Members receive deep discounts on these essential resources.

Industry-leading Advocacy

IHRSA’s advocacy efforts protect clubs from harmful legislation, promote policies that foster industry growth, and position clubs as a solution to the obesity epidemic. Our advocacy team has a near flawless record of defeating harmful legislation and short-sighted tax proposals. We work with federal and state lobbyists to protect membership contracts, preserve personal trainer certification requirements, ensure reasonable AED mandates, and stand up for other key issues so that health club businesses can thrive.

Health club operators understand the importance of building a community in their clubs, and IHRSA members recognize the benefits of a building similar community among industry leaders. Lifelong relationships are born through IHRSA referrals and events when members connect with their peers in an environment that encourages education through communication.

I attended my first IHRSA Convention in 1983 and it changed my life. What I learned at that convention and every year I have been back has been really the impetus for my club to be one of the largest single clubs in the United States and I attribute that all to IHRSA.
