Industry Buzz: A Treat for the Industry

Horror stories from Club Solutions.Next week, Club Solutions Magazine is going to be doing things a bit differently. Instead of our normal educational articles, we’re going to be posting a series of “Horror Stories” people have experience while working in health clubs in honor of Halloween. To be honest, I am so excited to share them with you. I believe the industry is in for a real “treat,” pun intended!

I bring this up because sometimes it’s hard to break out of the day-to-day grind and have a bit of fun with your work. For me personally, I struggle with pulling myself out of countless emails, articles and interviews, and taking a step back. I can only imagine how it would feel if on top of that, I had to budget accounts, handle issues with members and implement a new Group X program.

With this in mind, I hope next week’s “Horror Stories” remind you that sometimes — no matter how horrifying a scenario — a break from the average day can be a welcome source of comic relief. Hopefully, the stories not only make you cringe, but laugh as well.

Curious as to what next week’s stories will hold? Well, here’s a quick preview: one involves a man who decided that riding a cycling bike completely nude in a glass-walled studio was appropriate.

Think you can top that? If you have a “Horror Story” of your own you’d like to share, please email it to me at and it could be featured on Facebook.

And remember, work doesn’t have to be all grind and no play. Read next week’s “Horror Stories,” have a laugh and be grateful you’ve never had to confront a naked member on a cycling bike. Sometimes, life takes a bit of perspective!
