To help the fitness industry emerge from the COVID-19 crisis as successfully as possible, club owners and operators need guidance now more than ever. Not only is the future of fitness businesses at stake, but the health of the entire world.

IHRSA—in collaboration with World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry (WSFGI) and EuropeActive—is committed to producing resources and providing guidance for the reopening of health and fitness clubs worldwide. The working group, instigated and led by IHRSA, produced the key considerations document for sports, fitness, aquatics & ancillary facilities and clubs in the context of COVID-19 with accompanying risk assessment and mitigation tools.

This webinar will discuss this key considerations document, and how it can be best used by clubs already reopened as well as how it can be used in consultation with national and state governments and health authorities in showing how clubs can open as safely as possible.

The panel will answer your questions around the broad area of topics and facilities covered by the document.

Learning Objectives:

  • Get an in-depth review of the key considerations document for sports, fitness, aquatics, and ancillary facilities and clubs related to reopenings during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Learn from industry and pandemic experts about precautions necessary for your business
  • Ask questions related to your reopening and the precautionary measures needed

“This webinar is a must attend for every club. We have a panel of experts who were involved in the working group who developed these key considerations, along with the accompanying risk assessment tool and mitigation checklist, so all are well placed to answer your questions.”
