Banding Together with Other Industry Leading Companies to Help Fitpros Overcome Challenges Resulting from COVID-19

(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, CHICAGO, IL, April 8, 2020)  – The Association of Fitness Studios (AFS) and the Coalition of Health and Fitness Leaders (CHFL) today announced the inclusion of AFS as part of CHFL’s mission to help fitness professionals navigate the challenges resulting from COVID-19. 

AFS joins an impressive and ever-growing list of leading fitness organizations working together to help the industry through these difficult times, including IDEA, ISSA, WIFA, PTA Global, Precision Nutrition, Fitness Revolution and many others.

Per their website, “The Coalition is made up of leading health and fitness industry companies who have banded together to help move the entire industry forward.” They go on to say, “By coming together, the CHFL hopes to help as many people as possible – now and in future initiatives.” 

“Joining the CHFL was an absolute no-brainer for us as an organization,” said Josh Leve, AFS founder and CEO.  “The more we can come together during times like these and provide the best education on the planet to those who need it the most, the better prepared our industry will be.”

With gyms and fitness studios closed across the nation, nearly 50 additional companies have joined the coalition to support fitness professionals through free resources and webinars.  

“This is an essential mission that we’re proud to get behind,” says Leve. “These are unprecedented times and the more we can come together as an industry for the greater good, the better.”
