PHIT for a Healthier America
IHRSA's advocacy team is fighting to pass the Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act, federal legislation that incentivizes physical activity and lowers consumer costs. As a health and fitness industry professional or consumer, it's important that you get involved and spread the word!

The 20th Congress features presentations delivered by leaders from inside and outside the health and fitness industry, providing thought-provoking commentary on best practices and trends shaping the business world.
We’re back in Europe—Lisbon to be exact! Join the health and fitness industry for three days of education, expert presentations, networking, testing products, and more.
Records were broken, champagne was popped, and nothing will be the same for the health and fitness industry again.
Welcome to the Playbook for Best Practice Guidelines, an evolving product that will be the ultimate go-to resource for ensuring best practices in health and fitness club operations.
Whether it’s analyzing consumer trends, compiling best practices, promoting active lifestyles, or defending the interests of gym owners, no trade association does a better job than IHRSA. And not only do fitness professionals benefit from IHRSA, anyone who cares about health and fitness does so as well.
Chuck Runyon, CEO and Co-founder
One of the first decisions I made before opening Aquafit was to sign up for an IHRSA membership. I wanted to ensure that we set high standards from the very beginning. I was aware of the important role that IHRSA played, and wanted to become recognized, internationally, as an accredited health and fitness center.
Kristen Green, General Manager
The fitness industry is always evolving, and it’s often hard to determine if something new is just a fad or something worth investing in... One effective way to do so is by turning to IHRSA, a great resource for learning about industry best practices and for developing a network of contacts.
Carol Nalevanko, President
We owe a great deal of our success to IHRSA. One of the secrets of success is to constantly hang out with people who know more than you do. If you’re the smartest guy in the room, you’re in the wrong room. With IHRSA, you’re never the smartest guy in the room.
