IHRSA Health Club Business Handbook: The Ultimate Investor and Operator Guide
The primary goal of this handbook is to help existing and potential club owners, managers, and investors understand the key factors that affect the success of a health club company. Authored by John McCarthy, retired former executive director of IHRSA, and sponsored by ABC Financial Services, the Handbook is the long-awaited update to The Guide to the Health Club Industry for Lenders and Investors, also by McCarthy.
The publication provides health club owners with critical information needed to understand the operational considerations and market conditions that can make or break their businesses. It also provides lenders, investors, venture capitalists, and others with the financial performance indicators, consumer demographics data, and industry overview that will help them properly evaluate a club investment.
