We hope 2018 was a great year for you, your family, your team and your facility (or facilities). Here, at Club Insider, we spent 2018 Celebrating 25 Years of Trust by bringing you another stacked slate of informative cover stories by Publisher and Tribal Leader Since 1993, Norm Cates, and Partner and Assistant Publisher, Justin Cates; high-level best practices articles by the always-improving Club Insider Contributing Author Team; and key industry news and insights via selected press releases, and of course, monthly installments of Norm Notes.

In addition to Celebrating 25 years of Trust throughout this year, this month, we culminate the celebration with the 300th Edition of Club Insider! With each new milestone we are privileged to celebrate, we are increasingly honored because we believe we are doing something right and that it means something to you. And, it always reminds and humbles us because there is only one reason that allows us to do what we do and accrue these special moments in our professional lives. That reason is you, the loyal readers of Club Insider.

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you; first, for dedicating your professional lives to this great industry; second, we thank you for turning to us in this capacity to partially help you accomplish that life's mission. It is our honor. It is our purpose. Now, I welcome you to read on as we recap yet another fun and exciting year in the ongoing history of the health and fitness club industry.

A Summary of Our 2018 Cover Stories

We began 2018 with our January Cover Story on Scott and Beth Gillespie's Saco Sports & Fitness in Saco, Maine. An incredible facility throughout, the more incredible fact about this organization is that it had to rebuild from scratch after a destructive fire in 1994. Since then, they have excelled, and so many in our industry have learned from them because of their generosity in leadership.
