SUCCEED! Online Event Smashes Expectations 

Record 4,000+ Registrants Expected by Weekend

(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, April 30, 2020)  – The Association of Fitness Studios (AFS) proudly announced today that registrations for its SUCCEED! Virtual Online Event have exceeded 3,700 and likely will top out above 4,000 for May 2-3, 2020 educational event.   

The event, with a focus on Immediate Strategies to Excel Your Fitness Business During Uncertain Times - features two full days of education, the best of AFS and SUCCEED! presenters, a virtual ‘swag bag’ for all attendees (worth $1,000+) CECs/CEUs – and a free admission option.

“The response to us going virtual has been nothing short of sensational,” said Josh Leve, AFS Founder and CEO. “I believe we’ve struck a chord with our audience in terms of their access to quality education. It’s very gratifying to see our Community come together.”

That Community – for the SUCCEED! Online Event  - counts attendees from at least 70 countries, 45 U.S. states, plus Puerto Rico and Washington, DC, attesting to the size and scope of the AFS audience.

“We had a vision and thanks to great advice, strong sponsorship and the incredibly hard work of our team – we were able to make it happen,” said Leve. “And while I don’t usually put our folks ‘out there’ I want to thank Jose Onate, our IT Director and Sara Allen our Sponsorship & Member Service Director. They’ve made it all happen.”

And the sponsorship itself was impressive for a short sales period, essentially from the postponement of SUCCEED! 2020 to the start date of this Saturday, May 2, roughly eight weeks time. FitOn signed on as the “Ultimate” sponsor, with Myzone, Burnalong, BOSU®, and Power Systems as “Diamond” sponsors, and NASM/AFAA, Club Connect, NPE, UScreen, and PunchPass “Platinum” sponsors.

“Sponsors are integral to our success and the success of the SUCCEED! Online Event,” said Leve. “We strongly encourage SUCCEED! attendees to give a good, long look at the products and services being offered. There’s as much to learn from them as there is in the other educational sessions.”

The SUCCEED! Virtual Online Event takes place May 2-3, 2020. More information can be found at http://www.succeedwithafs.com/.

About SUCCEED! Virtual Online Event
