What Consumers Are Saying
"I would much prefer having an approved gym with good practices. There are so many problems with poor gym conduct. This would be a priority to me."
"I have used both, and I think that businesses that join trade organizations are more likely to share and engage in best practices."
"I like the small fitness place I go to and now I want to check if they're a part of a professional association."
