Mindbody and IHRSA Collaborate to Grow and Strengthen Fitness Businesses

Mindbody and IHRSA are joining forces to provide content and education to help strengthen fitness businesses and create a more influential advocacy voice.

Through a new IHRSA Studio Membership, the BOLD Conference, and IHRSA 2021, this collaboration will give you and your team the tools you need to thrive.

IHRSA launches its new Studio Membership

Earlier this year, IHRSA, The Global Health & Fitness Association, debuted its Studio Membership to engage more meaningfully with fitness studios and to deliver the tools necessary to improve and grow their businesses. A focal point of the new membership option is to assist and broaden the advocacy voice for fitness studios, which will strengthen the industry’s influence on Capitol Hill.

“As an owner of studios in Illinois and a long time IHRSA member, it's exciting to see studios being welcomed to join the association and benefit from all the advocacy efforts to protect and promote our industry, as well as benefit from the excellent professional education to help us all service more people and grow our businesses,” said Carrie Kepple, owner of Styles Studios Fitness and IHRSA Board Ex-officio.

The membership—designed specifically for studios, small gyms, and boutique fitness facilities and their staff—provides a vast collection of research, content, and educational opportunities to help your business flourish and succeed. It enables fitness business owners to connect with industry thought leaders and influencers to learn, share ideas, and support global initiatives to uplift the industry.

IHRSA will be at BOLD

IHRSA will be at BOLD from August 31 to September 2 in sunny San Diego. BOLD promises to provide an unforgettable experience—in person or virtually—with strategies, business insights, and inspiration for fitness professionals at every level.

IHRSA is a bronze sponsor for the event and will participate in a keynote session and host a booth at the trade show where attendees can learn more about the IHRSA Studio Membership, current advocacy efforts, and industry resources and research.

Mindbody continues to focus on helping people live happier, healthier lives by connecting the world to wellness. Realizing that IHRSA is also helping folks do the same through its initiatives and events, partnering with them strengthened our commitment to serve as a support platform for our business owners—especially after the pandemic hit.  As the industry continues to evolve out of the COVID-19 pandemic, now more than ever is the time for us to work together to lift up our fitness community.
