NFL Hall of Fame Receiver and four-time Super Bowl winner Lynn Swann kicked off this year’s Club Industry show, Oct. 10 in Chicago, with a spirited keynote address. Swann, newly named chairman of the President's Council on Physical Fitness &Sports, encouraged club owners to continue their efforts to reach Americans with a message about the importance of staying fit.

The annual conference and exhibition included more than 225 exhibitors and 100 seminars for the several thousand club owners, managers, directors and staff that attended from for-profit, non-profit, school, residential, corporate or hospital-based fitness centers.
