IHRSA (pronounced Ur-sah) stands for the International Health and Racquet Sportsclub Association and is the trade association for the health club industry both in the US and around the world.
The IHRSA conference and trade show takes place every March and is where health club owners and operators learn what they need to know about fitness facility operations and management which can include everything from vendors who provide soap and paper towels to companies like Les Mills which provide the group fitness programs that make you sweat.
