AFS Reports from IHRSA 2018

By Josh Leve, AFS Founder & CEO

The annual Convention & Trade Show of the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) was held March 21-24 in San Diego. 

Not unexpectedly, technology stole the show on four levels:

First, there was an explosion of technology companies offering club and studio management solutions through advanced applications;

Second, there was an equally impressive number of new companies offering streaming and virtual classes and trainer engagement tools;

Third, there was an abundance of firms utilizing heart rate technology, with wearables, trackables, and monitoring capability; and

Fourth, major traditional equipment suppliers have also embraced technology, incorporating a variety of treatments into treadmills, elliptical machines, and bikes, as well as new product launches.
