"We couldn't be happier with our partnership with IHRSA," said Michael Henry, President of FitMedia, the publisher of Fitness Pro. "IHRSA is the most-respected organization in the global health club industry, and Club Business International is the industry's leading global business magazine. To be able to share IHRSA's expertise with the a broader national audience is great for the industry, especially for industry suppliers, club operators and fitness professionals."
"Fitness Pro magazine is a quality publication that serves the entire fitness industry in Australia and even reaches into New Zealand," said Jay Ablondi, IHRSA's publisher and executive vice-president of global products. "Fitness Australia is strategic media partner of Fitness Pro, as is IHRSA, and we are happy to provide the industry's best-practices from Club Business International (CBI) magazine with Fitness Pro's growing readership."
"Fitness Pro magazine is a welcome addition to the Australian marketplace," agreed John Holsinger, IHRSA's director for Asia-Pacific, who is based in Sydney, Australia.
Henry noted that Fitness Pro will be distributed at the Fitness & Health Expo in Melbourne later this month (29 Apr - 1 May) as it was last year. "Industry leaders from both the club and supplier side have given us tremendous feedback on the first few issues," continued Henry. "So we know we are on the right track and look forward to working with IHRSA and Fitness Australia on growing our readership and supporters even more in 2016."
