We would like to thank all who took time from their busy schedules to #leave2learn. We had a great day at Monticello Community Center listening and learning from Dave Sanderson, Anne-Marie Fitz, Anna St Amant and Holly Johnson. Thank you to our speakers for sharing your knowledge and expanding ours.
The day would not have been possible without our amazing sponsors and we thank them for being part of our successful 2021 NIHCA Fitness & Exhibit Expo. Fitness On Demand, Horizon Pool Supply Company, Johnson Fitness & Wellness, ShapeNet, and Sunburst. Thank you!
We also want to thank our hosts. Monticello Community Center was awesome for welcoming us again this year. We thank you for the use of your facility and look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you to the Nordic Brewing Company for opening your doors for our roundtable event the evening before and always being so kind.
Here are what some of our attendees had to say about the day:
“This was my first conference. It was a great experience and I can’t wait for the next one.”
“It was great to get out of the club to attend with everyone. Meeting new people & the positive energy was wonderful!”
“NIHCA provides an invaluable experience through learning, networking, and overall fun times.”
“The NIHCA staff is always wonderful to work with. Their great customer service creates a great environment that fosters genuine conversation.”

18 months ago, most businesses were caught by surprise and unprepared to handle the challenges before us. The landscape for business was changing rapidly and it was fatiguing to keep up. Some businesses were unable to keep the pace and went out of business. After working so diligently we are now faced with uncertainty again.
NIHCA presents this 60-minute webinar lead by Karen Woodard Chavez of Premium Performance Training on Thursday, September 16th at 1p cst will examine the questions we need to ask and more importantly, answer, to make it through the next challenging period that will insure our longevity as businesses and our ability to not only survive but to thrive in the future.

One of our NIHCA goals is to be your partner and friend in the fitness industry and our Conference and Exhibit Expo is a great example of just that. NIHCA has been bringing together our Club Members for the last 16 years. Over the years we have brought you keynote speakers from comedians to fitness gurus. This year is no exception to the long list of motivational keynote speakers, Dave Sanderson.
Dave Sanderson is an Inspirational TEDx Speaker & Author who channeled his life-changing experience on US Airways Flight 1549, the Miracle on the Hudson, into a mission to provide insight on the important facets of faith, conviction and leadership; attributes that he credits with saving his life, and those of fellow passengers as the last passenger to leave the plane.
NIHCA attendees have had this to say:
~Conference is always a great time to connect with other Fitness Clubs and to see the NIHCA crew; to put a name to a face
~Amazing to hear from someone who couldn’t find their selves & has had ‘why-moments’ & overcame the hardest moments in her life. Plus now can help others
~ Lots of information to think about and apply to our facility
~ I really enjoyed this conference! Much focus on recharging, which was needed!!
~ I took a lot of notes so when I wake up, I can read over them and start my day with motivation & inspiration
Don’t delay; get registered today for our 2021 Fitness Conference & Exhibit Expo on September 22nd.
#Leave2Learn and join us the evening before at the Nordic Brewing Company for a networking opportunity with appetizers, bean bags and more.
