As we step into another year amidst the evolving landscape of the fitness industry, clubs are facing challenges in sustaining their group fitness offerings and retaining Group Fitness Instructors. Throughout the last few years, many fitness professionals have found themselves adapting, conducting classes in makeshift spaces or through virtual platforms. Some even made the tough decision to exit the industry altogether. Now, with the reopening of fitness facilities, there’s a noticeable shortage of group exercise instructors and a decline in attendance. In response, both instructors and clubs are actively seeking solutions to boost class participation. Join our esteemed panel of experts for an insightful webinar as they delve into the future of group exercise: exploring innovative programs, nurturing talent, and maximizing profitability in this dynamic landscape.
