CHICAGO, IL - Myzone, a wearable technology solution that rewards effort, has been named the IHRSA 2018 Associate Member of the Year. This award recognizes an IHRSA Associate Member for their significant contributions to the advancement of the health club industry and their support for IHRSA, its members and mission. The Myzone company has been an IHRSA member since 2011, and its founders have been members since 1997.
Myzone was selected as this year’s honoree due to its, "outstanding achievements, innovations and support of the health and fitness industry, its continued investment in leading-edge technology, and its unwavering support of IHRSA and its members," according to IHRSA.
