Its always a pleasure and privledge to attend IHRSA's annual conference, and this year is no exception. Its a full week meeting with everyone from Michael Bruno, fitness manufacturing icon and legend, my partner and health club guru Robert Dyer, our Fitmarc team, the Les Mills team and many other leaders in the fitness and health club industry like Brent Hallo, Lisa and Nigel Champion, Lauretta Stace , Sal Pellegrino, Ginger Collins and many many others.
Make sure you stop by the Star Trac booth (they've got some pretty cool stuff there this year) and the Les Mills booth to see the latest in group fitness. Please consider attending The Next New Thing, Wednesday from 2:00 - 3:30 pm where I'm on a panel with Patch Evans and others discussing key trends. You should also check out the Fit-C group on Wednesday afternoon (room 301 A) to learn why technology standards are so important to future growth in the business. The list of opportunities to learn and participate at IHRSA 2012 goes on and on.
I hope you are able to attend IHRSA this year and if so please feel free to reach out to me Bryan@fitmarc.com or via social media @bryankorourke and tell me, Bryan O'Rourke, what do you or did you think about IHRSA 2012 ? If you can't attend let me know what it is I can learn for you and I'll share it during or after the show !
