Running a health club can be a tiresome experience full of questions you wish you would have asked but did not, questions that seemed off-limits or uncomfortable to bring up. We are going to push past the taboo and get into the unfiltered questions that will actually make a difference for you and your club.

As a former gym owner turned industry sales rep, SportsArt’s Justin Tillinghast will be sharing the questions he wished he would have asked, as well as the questions gym owners across the country currently face.

Join Justin for this hour to get the answers you need but that many manufacturers don’t want you to know so that you can navigate the fitness industry like a veteran pro. The insights you gain will help you make educated decisions for your business that align with your gym's values, your current budget and your vision for the future.
