I’m pleased to announce my selection as a partner in the first annual World Fitness Business Owners Summit, a global, virtual conference featuring the top 25 luminaries and thought leaders in the health and fitness industry.
Registrations are open by clicking here.
These elite will present their best practices and most valuable insights to thousands of health and fitness professionals worldwide who desire to learn from the finest minds and most successful leaders in the profession.
A predicted 7000 health and fitness professionals from 129 countries are set to participate in the first WFBOS conference held via easy-to-use webinar technology. The draw, says WFBOS Presidents Rana Saini and Selina Scoble, is the highest calibre of health and fitness experts can deliver sales-pitch-free, rich content to live audiences that can interact with them in one virtual place, therefore connecting the global fitness community for the first time ever.
“A staggering 81% of fitness businesses are failing before they even reach their third year,” says Saini. “Undertrained fitness experts are damaging the name of the profession. We want to close the gap between the top fitness pros and the ones barely making it by showing the latter how to run their businesses more effectively and offer real value to their clients.”
Scoble applauds the efforts of other leaders and organizations that have taken measures to improve this situation for the industry. “We should all be working to raise the bar by improving the ethics and standards. It helps individual fitness leaders do better and it helps the industry succeed as a whole.”
The Pre-Summit series, August 1-31, 2012, offers a complimentary opportunity to sample the sessions of the full Summit before registering. The full Summit runs September 14-29, 2012.
