If you attended the Club Industry East show in New York this past May, you know that the group exercise competition was one of the most compelling events there. Large and small clubs strutted their stuff, enthusiastically demonstrating their new and original classes in 15- to 20-minute segments. Each presentation brought big crowds to the Live at Club Studio! area to see how it was done and to catch the excitement of the workouts.
In this case, the (off-) Broadway premier was the steppingstone for a bigger stage. We will be once again showcasing the competition at the Club Industry 2010 show this Oct. 7-8 at McCormick Place in Chicago. It will be called the Group X Gallery-Live At Club Studio!
We are inviting fitness facilities of all types to demonstrate their best workouts in front of an audience of their peers. If you take us up on this, what do you get? Well, before the show, all participating companies will be listed on the Club Industry trade show's website and in e-mails promoting the competition. At the show, the competitors will be promoted in the official show directory as well as on prominent signs. Club Industry will provide free registration for both your workout team and as many of your staff as you want to bring along to cheer them on.
Each workout will be judged by a panel of fitness authorities from our conference faculty, and videos of the performances will be posted on both the Club Industry magazine and Club Industry trade show websites. Winners will receive both a copy of the video of their workout and a commemorative plaque.
So you might be wondering, what sort of workouts qualify? Well, the program must be original (no licensed programs), and it must be exclusive to your club or chain. Participants must bring any equipment needed for the program, as well as staff to demonstrate the program. Club Industry will provide needed audio support, such as a CD player/iPod hookup, headset microphone and sound system.
To participate, contact Cristina Cotto at [email protected] or call 570-996-6031.
Everybody is a star at the Group X Gallery-Live at Club Studio!
