Health Club Owners and Managers

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Put simply, health clubs can bring owners a large amount of revenue, and these owners aren't willing to trust the management of such lucrative venues to individuals who are not qualified to run them. Certification is one way a health club owner can ensure that certain industry standards in club management are met. The International Facility Management Association, probably the industry leader in certification, offers the designations of facility management professional and certified facility manager. Some health club owners and managers also teach fitness classes. In this instance, they might want to earn certification credentials in fitness training, which are offered by many professional fitness associations, including the American Council on Exercise.
