Next month, you'll see a different Club Industry arrive in your mailbox. We're excited to show you our new look in print and on the Web site that we think will make reading our magazine and Web site more enjoyable and informative for you. We've tried to ensure that these changes only add to your experience rather than detract from it.

We are proud that for 25 years, we have been the authoritative, independent voice of the fitness industry. In the past five years, as we moved to more of a news and business publication, we feel we have done a better job of keeping you informed about what is happening in the for-profit, nonprofit, university, military, government, corporate and hotel sides of the business. With our changes next month, we plan to continue that track record — and improve upon it even further.

Part of the change is that all facets of the Club Industry franchise — the print and digital magazine, the Web site, the e-newsletter and the trade shows — will work together to build a strong community for you. Watch for our grand unveiling at the Club Industry show next month — and in your print or digital edition of the magazine. Then, let us know what you think about the changes we've made.
