IHRSA EUROPE UPDATE


Dozens of new product launches for the health and fitness sector took place during the two-day trade show


four to five, including: • Find every person’s values, using a range of open-ended questions.


• Speak in terms of shared values, as when George Washington said: “We all want freedom and independence.”


• Build triads: three-person relationships where each individual is responsible for the quality of the relationship between the other two. Logan commented that Phil Jackson,


legendary former coach of the Chicago Bulls, attributed the team’s consecutive championship wins to their journey from thinking “I’m great” to thinking “we’re great”. The same day, Debra Siena, president of


Midtown Health Club, and Amy Morin, a psychotherapist, hosted the fifth Annual Women’s Leadership Summit. Its theme was ‘13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do’, based on a list created by Morin which went viral after being shared on Forbes.com. “Having good habits is not always enough,”


Morin told those in attendance at the summit. “You need to look at how your bad habits hold you back. Once you’re aware of your bad habits, you need to make a plan (to change them), and put it on paper and figure out how to implement it. You have to commit to it every day and be patient with yourself.”


Recognising successes Three industry leaders were recognised during IHRSA 2014 for their commitment to serving the industry, and their local communities. The Outstanding Community Service


Award was presented to Kim Austin Kenyon and her team at Gold’s Gym Dutchess County. The reach of Gold’s Gym Dutchess County extends far beyond the walls of the two clubs, touching the lives of people in the community as a regular supporter of organisations like the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association and The Renegades’ Pitch for Kids – a local foundation that focuses on strengthening children and families. The Julie Main Scholarship was presented


to Patsy McLean of Canada’s Adelaide Club. Like Julie Main, Patsy also faced the adversity of a cancer diagnosis. Now a melanoma survivor, she launched a Cancer Specific Exercise programme at the Adelaide Club, and leads wellness seminars where she shares her message that life’s challenges can be overcome through healthy living. In all aspects


of her work, her warm, caring and motivating approach is helping more people to get active and live healthier, happier lives. The Associate Member of the Year Award


was presented to ABC Financial. An IHRSA member since 1986, ABC Financial was selected for its decades of outstanding achievement, innovation and support of the health and fitness industry, its continued investment in leading- edge technology, marketing programmes and software solutions, and its unwavering support of IHRSA and its members. For the ninth consecutive year, IHRSA


proudly hosted The BASH for Augie’s Quest, an aggressive cure-driven ALS research initiative established by fitness industry pioneer Augie Nieto. The highlight of the evening was when Nieto, who has been

fighting ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease) since 2005, displayed his strength gains by walking (with assistance) across the stage, to the delight of the over 1,000 Bash attendees. The 2014 Bash raised over US$1.7m. Since 2006, Augie’s Quest, in conjunction with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), has raised over US$41m. l
