The Associate Member of the Year Award is presented annually to recognize an IHRSA Associate Member for their significant contributions to the advancement of the health club industry, as well as their support of IHRSA, its members, and its mission through program and event participation, advertising, and sponsorship.
TRX, a leading producer of functional training programs, education, and equipment for the industry was selected as this year's honoree.
"We are delighted to honor our good friends at TRX for their ongoing support of IHRSA and for their work to grow the industry,“ said Joe Moore, IHRSA President and CEO. “When Randy Hetrick launched the first Travel X, the precursor to the TRX Suspension Trainer in 2004, he foresaw what the future of functional training would be for millions of fitness consumers. Since then, TRX has been a leader in delivering innovative products and programs designed to not only inspire people to be more active, but more importantly, help them achieve their fitness goals.”
"We're thrilled to be selected as IHRSA's Associate Member of the Year. This will be one of the great highlights of 2017 for TRX. Since my first 10'x10' booth in 2005 through today, IHRSA has played a pivotal role in our history and success as a company," said Randy Hetrick, Founder and CEO of TRX. "Being recognized among this best-in-class group of associates for the contributions and impact that TRX is making across the industry means a lot to me and my team. We look forward to continuing to revolutionize the industry and lead the way in functional training for many years to come."
The award was presented during IHRSA 2017, IHRSA’s 36th Annual International Convention & Trade Show in Los Angeles, California that took place March 8-11th.
