Why Attend?

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.

What's Included?

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 Institute will provide you with more than an education. It will challenge you to go deep, to challenge the status quo, to redefine your definition of success and what it means for you, your team, and your facility. The Institute is the path to become the leader you’ve always wanted to be."

CURRICULUM

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.

NETWORKING

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.
