Committed to the growth, protection, and promotion of the health and fitness industry, and the success of our members.
The mission of IHRSA, The Global Health & Fitness Association, is to grow, protect, and promote the health and fitness industry, and to provide its members with the benefits that will help them be more successful. IHRSA and its members (health and fitness clubs, gyms, studios, sports and aquatic facilities, and industry partners) are dedicated to making the world healthier through regular exercise.
Shaping a Healthier World for All
IHRSA and the fitness industry are dedicated to increasing access to physical activity across the world. There are many ways in which we strive to achieve this goal: we advocate for a universally inclusive fitness industry, one in which people of all races, backgrounds, ages, orientations, and abilities feel intentionally welcomed and included; we actively partner with several national, international, and global organizations working to help more people get active, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), and the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition; and we run global campaigns promoting inclusive physical activity, like the Get Active for All Campaign. Together, we can make the world a healthier place and create a better future for our industry.
SMART Summit Day 1 sessions and discussions have wrapped up! We're really feeling the enthusiasm in Munich and are so excited to be with our international partners, peers, and friends again.
One of the best parts of any conference is networking—okay, more like socializing. When it's been nearly two years, how could you not be excited to see old friends at the IHRSA SMART Summit? Plus, there's plenty of brilliant fitness industry technology, equipment, services, and more to check out at the #FitnessConnected trade show!
