Veterans Day 2021

November 11th, 2021

NIHCA is honored to take a moment each year to celebrate all American Veterans for their service. To our members who are Veterans, Thank You! To your members who are Veterans, Thank You!

Who are our American Veterans? We are glad you asked. A veteran by definition is any current or past military member of the armed services.

        • Army
        • Marine Corps
        • Navy
        • Air Force
        • Space Force
        • Coast Guard
        • National Guard


Veterans Day is a day to thank and honor all veterans who are serving or who have served in the United States military. For more information on this day and even a list of ways you can thank a Veteran, click HERE to view an article from The Old Farmer’s Almanac editors posted last month.

Halloween at the Club

October 13th, 2021

Halloween is a fun holiday for kids and it should be fun for kids of all ages. Halloween doesn’t need to be scary or filled with sugary treats to be fun. Here are NIHCA’s thoughts on bringing Halloween to your club.

  • Have a costume contest with bonus points for being able to complete your workout in costume
  • Invite trick-or-treaters to your center when your local area is participating in the holiday. Ideas of what to hand out:
    • Promo items such as pens, magnets, etc
    • Healthier treats like pretzel packs, protein balls, or dried fruit
    • Treat “hands” filled with candy
    • Coupon Discounts to your club
  • Offer a Halloween themed workout
    • Hold a pumpkin throughout the workout
    • Change up the names of your workouts
      • Inchworm = zombie rising
      • Burpees = Ghost flops
      • Bearcrawl = Spider walking
    • Have a Halloween “MASK” contest


It’s hard to believe Halloween is around the corner but now is the time to get something great planned for your facility. So what will you implement for Halloween this year?
