CHICAGO, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Should companies provide fitness centers for their employees? Do corporate fitness centers work? Is it worth it? Does it make a difference?
These and other topics will be discussed at the first annual Corporate Fitness Show, to be held in conjunction with Club Industry 2007, October 10-13 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Featuring panelists from a broad spectrum of the industry, the conference aims to bring together practitioners of corporate fitness and those industry stakeholders who affect the policies and procedures that are key to successful corporate fitness operations, according to the show's owner, Marc Onigman.
"We're trying to make a modest effort to re-kindle what had been a wonderful segment of the commercial fitness industry," says Onigman. "Despite the fact that the healthcare system is in need of repair and the fact that more people are actively seeking ways in which to become healthier at, or through, the workplace, not enough is being done in the workplace to give people the opportunities to become healthier."
Panelists at this year's event include Sue Liebenow, L&T Health and Fitness; Lloyd Gainsboro, Dedham Health and Athletic Complex; Alice Watland, The American Telemedicine Association; Frank Napolitano, GlobalFit; Jerry Noyce, Health Fitness Corporation; Lisa Cronin, Burger King; Michael Wood, Koko Fitness; Cheryl Larson, The Midwest Business Group on Health; Robyn Van Der Luit and Cheryl Ridall, Club One; Joe Durst, Healthways; Tom Blackadar, Fitlinxx; Emily Goodling, Highmark; and one of the founding fathers of corporate fitness, the inventor and designer Thomas A. Wills.
Topics range from the future of electronic medical records, to the ROI on corporate fitness programs, to how health clubs and corporations can work together to better serve the consumer.
The Corporate Fitness Show is owned by Stone Hearth Fitness, whose principal, Marc Onigman, is the editor of Commercial Fitness Today, an industry newsletter.
