A New Era of Management Information

We launched IDEA Fitness Manager more than 20 years ago with the intention of providing fitness facility owners, managers and directors like you with the highest-standard content in the industry. Year after year, issue after issue, this power-packed newsletter has consistently delivered timely information that has directly impacted your job and supported your success. To keep our standards high—and take your career to the next level—we are now making the transition to a digital, online format.

We are very excited about this next step in the evolution of IDEA Fitness Manager. We have heard your concerns about environmental impact and are happy to be shrinking our carbon footprint. Saving on paper, postage, ink and energy is part of our effort to work toward a better, more beautiful world. However, there is even more to be excited about. Your digital version of IDEA Fitness Manager offers numerous benefits to you:

Convenient Archive. You will now be able to organize your issues without accumulating dust. Either save your copy to your own computer, or access the entire file in the online archive on IDEA’s website (www.ideafit.com). You can, of course, print a paper copy if you prefer.

IDEA Gold Standard. You will still receive the same type and quantity of excellent content, delivered directly to your inbox.

Networking Community. Digital IDEA Fitness Manager will feature an online community where you can leave instant feedback and connect with other directors, owners and managers. This added benefit will help you solve problems related to hiring, management and facility maintenance.

The Next Step

As you can see, we thought carefully before deciding to digitize our content. Our primary concern is always how our decisions affect you, our valued member. We are confident that this new era in information delivery will prove to be not only a wise “green” move but also a smart and efficient way to honor you, the smart and efficient fitness professional.

As we move forward with this transition, it is very important that we have your current e-mail information so that delivery of your IDEA Fitness Manager will continue seamlessly. If you have not done so recently, please contact our membership department (member@ideafit.com) and make sure we have your e-mail address on file. (We respect your privacy and do not share e-mail addresses.) We hope you will let us know how you enjoy this updated version of a timeless classic, and also how we can keep improving all our publications and our service to you.

In good health,

Kathie and Peter Davis
