IHRSA 2022 Takeaways

  • The event returns to San Diego, California in March 2023 — a location favorite for many in the industry.
  • Recovery offerings were a hit at the trade show.
  • Daymond John of ABC “Shark Tank” gave an excellent keynote speech.


  • Recovery vendors like HydroMassage and Therabody were constantly busy.
  • People want recovery even if they don’t workout that much.
  • Recovery space can grow opportunities for exercise.
  • Blair hopes recovery moves more people up the fitness/effort scale.
  • Recovery is also a great opportunity to increase gym profits.

Other Takeaways
