  1. 1. 2012Change Or DieBryan K. O’Rourke - CEO Integerus 9 Things Fitness Industry©2012 | www.bryankorourke.com January 2012 Leaders & Brands Must Do To 1 Avoid Extinction & Flourish
  2. 2. Introduction - Change or Die 20129 Things Fitness Industry Leaders & Brands Must Do To Avoid Extinction & FlourishI’ve had the privilege to hear from and engage with thousands of leaders in the fitness, health club and wellnessindustry during the past several years. From CEO’s of global brands, to trainers, health club owners, suppliers andeducators in the U.S. and across the globe. The industry is going through a lot of change and trying to challengecommon views is hard because many don’t think there are big problems, nor do they believe wholesale change isupon them. I don’t agree (to understand why watch this). It is my belief that the global health and fitness industry isgoing through a period of great disruption, hence the image of a lion attempting to eat a zebra on the previous page.For those who agree the future will entail tremendous change, the most common questions raised during ourconversations are: “How do we respond? How do we deal with it? What should we do?” These are good questionsand they deserve answers.Good answers are hard to share because there are a variety of implications for each business, person or institution.As a result I’ve prepared this brief outline of what I believe each and every participant should contemplate aboutwhat must be done differently when it comes to surviving now and succeeding in the future. Remember, as much astremendous change and disruption can create pain for those firmly planted in the present and past, so will it createnew opportunities for those with an eye to the future.Hopefully this content will provide a construct to help those who’ve asked these questions and to create a dialogueabout what can be done to make the future brighter for us all. For me that future is one where health, fitness andwellness become more attainable for all people across the globe, thus improving the quality of hundreds of millionsof lives. Most importantly, that professionals like you are the ones contributing the most to that future.Please tell me what you think about the 9 things we should do. I look forward to hearing your point of view.Bryan O’Rourkewww.bryankorourke.com @bryankorourke January 2012 2
