It feels like it was yesterday that I wrote, "Another year has flown by," in our 2009 In Review report. Well, now, it's the end of 2010, and it's time to review everything covered in Club Insider this year. As always, we worked very hard to produce a set of valuable cover stories, featuring amazing and successful individuals within the industry whose stories can help others in the industry. Our growing team of Contributing Authors presented many great articles on a variety of topics, any one of which can help your club business thrive and grow. We reported industry news as it happened, and of course, Norm Cates provided another full volume of Norm's Notes, reporting the inside scoop on news affecting the industry, offering commentary and opinions, as well as honoring those that our industry and this world lost in 2010.

A Summary of Our 2010 Cover Stories

In January, we featured Lloyd and Roberta Gainsboro's Dedham Health and Athletic Complex. Coined "A Jewel In New England" by Norm Cates, this facility is a very unique sight to behold, and like Phil Wendel's Atlantic Coast Athletic Clubs (ACAC) chain, they have had great success in the area of Medical Fitness. Lloyd and Roberta, along with Phil Wendel, were awarded the John McCarthy Visionary of the Year Award in March at IHRSA 2010.

In February, we featured five clubs owners and operators who have seen great success with Body Training Systems. They included John Miller, President of Courthouse Athletic Club in Salem, Oregon; Stephen S. Roma, Chief Operating WoWzer of WoW Work Out World in New Jersey; John Bonica, Co-owner of Global Fitness Center in Massachusetts; Jason West, Co-owner of Gold's Gym Elite and Manager of Gold's Gym Max in Columbus, Georgia; and Mike Silva, Owner of The Edge in Ramsey, New Jersey.

Following IHRSA 2010 in March, our March Edition presented interviews with and acceptance speech excerpts from award winners Phil Wendel and Lloyd and Roberta Gainsboro (John McCarthy Visionary of the Year Award) and Mike Motta (Dale S. Dibble Distinguished Service Award). Other award winners included Pat Laus (Award for Outstanding Community Service), Jasmin Kirstein (Julie Main Emerging Woman Leader Scholarship) and Balanced Body Pilates (Associate Member of the Year).
