The International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association is having their convention this week in San Fransisco. I'll be out the door early tomorrow morning to help represent Mad Dogg Athletics at our booth. I have presented at and attended nearly 60 conferences in the last 20 years, but this will be my first time at IHRSA. I have always been to conferences that focus on fitness instructors and personal trainers, but this convention focuses on managers and owners of facilities.
IHRSA provides a number of services to our industry. They create initiatives to encourage the general public to exercise. They lobby in Washington to defend and promote public policy that is positive for the careers in this field. They provide meetings and trade shows that bring owners and managers together with the many new products that are created by innovative entrepreneurs in our industry and they also provide us with research and information.
You can check out their website at ihrsa.org and if you happen to be at the convention this year in San Fransisco, please come by the Mad Dogg booth and introduce yourself. Better yet, check out one of our early morning workouts featuring Peak Pilates and Bodyblade.
