We've spruced up our Web site and beefed up our Newsbeat e-newsletter. So what more can we do to entice those of you enthralled with anything digital and Web-related? How about offering you our magazine in a digital format? It may not be as handy to carry around with you on the club floor, but more of you are getting your information through your personal communications devices and the Internet. Considering that we like to keep up with the latest in technology, we thought it was high time we offered a digital version of the magazine for those who want it.

So check out our Web site at www.fitnessbusinesspro.com to sign up for the digital version, which will launch soon. Of course, for those of you who like the printed version of the magazine, you can still get it. We don't plan to give up the printed page anytime soon.

CI East Comes Early

If the Club Industry East conference and trade show is coming early this year (April 16-19 in New York City rather than sometime in June), then does that mean spring will also make an early appearance? Probably not, much to the chagrin of those of us who are weary of the freezing weather, ice and snow.

Even though you won't be able to enjoy an early spring thaw, you can enjoy some educational seminars and product demonstrations at the Club Industry East show. For more information about the conference, read the show preview, which begins on page 56.
