One year after the COVID-19 pandemic caused cities and states to temporarily close health clubs, the fitness industry is still grappling with the pandemic. COVID-19 closures and restrictions have caused significant industry damage, and club operators have responded with a renewed focus on member safety and re-engagement efforts. Fitness centers are continuing to implement evidence-based risk mitigation protocols, educating members and the public about the importance of exercise and the safety of clubs, and monitoring new research. IHRSA has examined the latest research and will present what club operators and staff need to know.
