In the September issue of Club Industry, we mistakenly referred to Healthclub.com as Healthclubs.com. An IHRSA site, Healthclubs.com enables users to locate IHRSA fitness facilities nationwide; the site also provides a detailed map and point-to point-to-point driving directions. We apologize for the confusion.
