As state after state began to temporarily close health clubs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, one-time competitors in the fitness industry did something new—they began to turn to each other to share ideas and talk about possible solutions. This led several club operators to develop alliances on a state-by-state basis. Those alliances took action, and several impacted local politicians to help reopen clubs in their states. What role can these alliances play in the future of the industry, and how can you get involved in an alliance or create your own in your state? Find out in this panel with three club operators who helped develop alliances in their states.
