Confessions of a Club Solutions Leadership Retreat Attendee

Club Solutions Leadership Retreat

Planning to attend a continuing education event can be stressful. Thoughts may include, what should I expect? How is this different than attending other events? What am I really going to get out of attending?

We asked Greg Lyons, the VP of Corporate Development with ACAC Fitness & Wellness Centers, about his experiences as an attendee of the Club Solutions Leadership Retreat. Here, he answers your most pressing questions.

CS: What do you value the most about attending the Club Solutions Leadership Retreat each year?

GL: The opportunity to connect with operators from clubs of all shapes and sizes to exchange ideas and information. I enjoy learning how a training studio operator may solve an issue and contrast that point of view with how ACAC would approach a similar dilemma.

CS: How are roundtable discussions different than attending a traditional educational session at other events?

GL: During the roundtable discussions, there’s a chance to dive head first into an idea and come up with solutions. You get more than the surface-level conversations that seem to dominate other industry events.

CS: What were you most surprised about after attending the Club Solutions Leadership Retreat the first time?

GL: I was surprised about the depth of conversations I could have over a two-day period. I’ve been able to build lasting relationships that allow me to communicate with other attendees on a year-round basis.

CS: Why should other health club owners and operators attend an event like this?

GL: The Club Solutions Leadership Retreat is a “must attend” event on my calendar because of the opportunity to learn and share ideas with an outstanding lineup of smart, professional industry executives.


The Club Solutions Leadership Retreat will take place September 5-7 at The Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Florida this year. Limited attendee spots remain.
