Fitness Management & Consulting Announces Endorsement of the International Health Club Association

Fitness Management & Consulting endorses the International Health Club Association (IHCA), the industry leader in providing cost-cutting programs and revenue producing resources for health clubs, fitness centers and gyms.

Online PR News – 16-September-2011 – – Dallas, TX – Fitness Management & Consulting announced today the endorsement of the International Health Club Association, the leader in providing cost-cutting programs and revenue producing resources for health clubs, fitness centers and gyms.
With over 100 years of combined fitness industry experience the owners and operators of IHCA understand the everyday struggles fitness center owners face. They understand all aspects of fitness center development and operation. They are not a (hands off) association - they have been and continue to be on the front line of health club management and operations. “As a longtime fitness industry professional, I understand the importance of creating additional revenue streams and keeping costs down,” says Andrew Carchia, IHCA President.
When a health club or gym joins the IHCA they will first have access to a one stop shopping web site via their online trade show. IHCA has negotiated for club owners only the best pricing through major supplying companies on anything they need to operate their center .i.e. consulting, billing and collections (ABC Financial), marketing, leasing, equipment new or used, first aid, social media networking, referral systems, printing, lead generation, insurance and much more. They have done the work for the club owner by taking all the guess work out of finding reliable companies to support each health club or gym.
In addition, IHCA will market health club members directly in the clubs name via the FMIA (Fitness Members Insurance Association/Agency). This association was developed specifically for individual members. With the FMIA individuals will be able to purchase all insurance products .i.e. Auto, Health, Home owners, business and supplemental insurances with the IHCA discounted rates through major insurance carrier companies.
The extensive background and experience of the International Health Club Association helps to maximize productivity and eliminate all of the guess work for health club and gym owners across the country. IHCA’s philosophy of treating each club owner like a partner makes them an ideal business associate. “The best part of all of this is the unlimited potential for you as a health club owner to generate revenue through your existing and new membership base. Every product that IHCA retails will generate revenue for you. With each program IHCA sells, the health club will begin to generate an additional draft, an extra revenue stream directly into their bank account,” says Jim Thomas, President of Fitness Management & Consulting.
