The IHRSA Institute provides a strong overall foundation for anyone working in the fitness industry. The faculty includes both industry experts and professors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Classes are small and intimate. Through classroom discussions and social activities, you will learn not only from the faculty, but also from your peers.
The all-inclusive registration fee covers education, lodging, meals, events, and valuable IHRSA publications and management tools. The IHRSA Institute has been designed to provide an industry-specific program – but at a much lower price than similar executive education programs at prestigious universities.
The course of study was developed over many years based on feedback from IHRSA members, attendees, and faculty. An Advisory Group, consisting of industry leaders, has guided the development of the curriculum. Courses are taught by industry experts, many of whom serve as college faculty, along with faculty from UNC. Classes are meant to be interactive so you gain knowledge not only from the teachers but also from your fellow club operators.
The Institute starts with a fun opening session that will allow you to learn from, and about, your fellow attendees. Meals, roundtables, and social activities throughout the event are structured to facilitate the exchange of best practices and inspiration and build relationships that last long after the Institute ends.
The Rizzo Center features state-of-the-art meeting space along with a boutique style hotel specifically designed with the business traveler in mind. Amenities include fitness facilities, a pool complex with outdoor lounge areas, a UNC-themed sports bar, guest pantries stocked with beverages and snacks, laundry rooms, and top-of-the-line technology offerings.
