We, at Club Insider, hope this finds you in good health, good cheer and having had a great year! In days, 2017 will be over, and 2018 will be in full swing. Let's make it the best year yet! But, before we go, it's time for Club Insider's "2017 In Review." As always, this year, our goal was to bring you informational and inspirational stories of health and fitness club industry knowledge and success with a fresh lineup of cover stories, in-depth best practices articles from our team of Contributing Authors and timely news and thought-provoking insights in Norm's Notes. In 2017, we hope you have enjoyed what you have read and have been able to use this information to better your health and fitness club business.

This year was also special for us at Club Insider because we celebrated our 25th Anniversary. And, beyond that, Club Insider Publisher and Tribal Leader Since 1993, my Dad, Norm Cates was honored with Club Industry's Lifetime Achievement Award. We thank you: Our Loyal Readers, as well as our Contributing Author and Advertising Teams, because without all of you, neither of those humbling events would have occurred. We are honored, and it is our privilege to serve you.

Moving on, let's take a quick look back at this year's cover stories. If you missed any of them, always remember that our Online Archive Library features every edition ever published, which at this time, contains 288 monthly editions totaling 9,500+ pages, and we welcome you to check that out at

Everyone has heard of and probably used the world-famous STEP, and now, KUSHH! is its natural evolution. As part of the story, we also got insights from Gin Miller, Creator of Step Aerobics and Renowned Group Exercise Instructor to get her in-the-trenches view of this evolution.
