OVERLAND PARK, KS — Club Industry magazine recently announced plans to name the best fitness facilities in a variety of segments ranging from front desk reception, sales tour, locker room and more.

The magazine, working in conjunction with Bare Associates, will begin taking nominees for individual fitness facilities to be included in the inaugural Club Industry “Best of the Best” next month.

“We will accept a limited — and yet to be determined — number of individual facilities to be mystery shopped by Bare Associates,” said John Agoglia editor-in-chief of Club Industry magazine. “Following the initial evaluation process the editorial staff along with a panel of industry experts will name its Best of the Best. It is a way for individual centers, whether independent or part of a chain, to receive acknowledgement for a job well done.”

The winners are scheduled to be announced in the September 2003 issue of Club Industry magazine.
