Of the individuals diagnosed with COVID-19, 99 to 99.5 percent will survive, according to Johns Hopkins University, but some of them will deal with long-term health effects that can include cardiovascular disease, stroke and neurological dysfunction. They will require rehabilitation, support and guidance best provided by the infrastructure and professionals in the health club industry. We simply need to make sure we have the specific knowledge to work with COVID-19 health complexities.

So where do we start? This session will outline the realities of COVID-19 and how to take the first steps toward establishing a solution for the people in your community. We’ll also widen this debate and discuss real ways we can broaden our reach and attract other specific populations, such as those living with cancer. This is our opportunity to welcome a wider population into our facilities and restate our position as a sector, and leaders in the global campaign of health improvement.
