When it comes to fitness, whether it’s fitness psychology, exercise physiology, gym equipment, exercise programming or anything else in the large space of the fitness gym world, IHRSA is the first and last word on the topic. This week, March 12-15, 2014, at the San Diego Convention Center, the 33rd Annual International Convention and Trade show of IHRSA will take place. IHRSA stands for the International Health and Racquet & Sports club Association. You can find them at http://www.ihrsa.org

There will be more than 8,000 in attendance, so no joke, come on down!!
