What our Members are Saying

Amy Thompson

Encouragement, insight and inspiration are a few of the words I would use to describe what I get from my WIFA membership.

WIFA has been an important resource for me in connecting with other leaders in the industry. We share our best practices, our challenges and we collaborate to further the industry.


The webinars, the Mentorship, the events and the women have been instrumental in my recent growth as a fitness business leader.  #fitnessismybusiness 

Michelle Moses

Let's be honest, in any business it is and always has been "who you know". Education, experience and talent aside we all need a foot in, hand up and support. This is what WIFA has been for me.


In the short time I've been a member I have increased my global connections in the fitness industry by 20% across all platforms just by using the Member Resources alone!


My favorite right now are the webinars/virtual meetings that help me learn so much as I grow my personal fitness brand.


I'm getting my name out there and WIFA is helping me. Thanks WIFA!members for years to come.

Carolyn Erickson

I have never had a mentor and it is so much fun! Because of Debra I applied to speak at IHRSA. I would never have done that if it wasn't for the mentor program.

We are all busy women and I am a single mom, so taking the time to have a real conversation with Debra was really great!
