This is Jennifer Urmston Lowe reporting from the 2016 Club Industry Show in Chicago! I have two major take-away themes to share for 2016: Education and Networking.


Club Industry put together  strong education tracks for sales & marketing, leadership, programing, wellness and studios. The sessions were packed and there was a ton of excitement & buzz about the very useful and meaningful content presented!

Sports & Fitness Insurance Corporation was proud to sponsor this valuable education for studio owners provided by the Association of Fitness Studios. Watch the video below to see an illuminating portion of Josh Leve’s session, The State of the Fitness Studio Industry:


Moving to Chicago’s Hyatt Regency this year, Club Industry succeeded in creating a more dynamic environment for fitness business owners to spend time together, sharing insights and growing a true sense of community.

Norm Cates’s Club Insider magazine, “The Pulse of the Health and Fitness Club Industry,” put together a wonderful slide show of the events:
