International Membership Benefits

IHRSA’s reach spans the globe, and so do our membership benefits.

Whether your club is located in Europe or Latin America, IHRSA membership comes with resources and programs that will strengthen your business. All international members receive discounted attendance at IHRSA's meetings, trade shows, and events; access to IHRSA's publications and resources; access to the member-only section of the IHRSA website; participation in IHRSA's programs, and more.


In 2016 we opened an IHRSA Europe office in Brussels, Belgium, to better serve and engage members across the continent. The multi-lingual IHRSA Europe team strives to provide pan-European networking and learning opportunities, and to quantify and track the growth of the European industry.

Several of our programs are designed for European members, including the IHRSA European Congress, a four-day executive-level event, and the IHRSA Passport Program, which extends discount guest access for your members at more than 1,000 health club worldwide and provides your club with an easy way to increase non-dues revenue.

Latin America

The Latin American health club industry is experiencing rapid growth. That’s why IHRSA has dedicated several programs to benefitting clubs in this developing region.

Multilingual resources for Latin American members include the IHRSA Brasil blog, newsletter, and The IHRSA Latin American Report (Second Edition)—the most comprehensive examination of key Latin American health club markets available anywhere. We also partner with local associations and events, including the annual IHRSA / Fitness Brasil Latin American Conference & Trade Show, ACAD, and Mercado Fitness.

We work closely with all Asia-Pacific country associations to build a stronger industry in the region. We also strive to provide additional pan-Asian networking and learning opportunities, such as ChinaFit/IHRSA China Management Forum, the Sportec/IHRSA Management Seminars in Japan, and other events to identify and track key industry market data across the region.

Much of the market research is published in the Asia Pacific Market Report, which provides a comprehensive analysis of sixteen markets in the region. The report—discounted for members—should be the first stop for anyone in the health club industry to find data about Asia-Pacific. It examines membership penetration rates, market size, market potential, average commercial club monthly membership, market share of top players, number of fitness clubs, and economic outlook.
