IFBA Live will be hosted between the 10 - 11 July 2020 at The Slate in Warwick
Pre-sale tickets are now available for the UK’s only event created exclusively for personal trainers, gym owners and fitness managers working in the independent gym and health club sector. IFBA Live will be hosted between the 10 - 11 July 2020 at The Slate in Warwick.

Following the success of the inaugural IFBA Live event in 2019, which was attended by hundreds of independent gym owners and operators as well as personal trainers, has now become a ‘must attend’ event for anyone working in the health and fitness industry. The IFBA specialises in providing practical support and business consultancy for the independent fitness sector, aimed at the most ambitious fitness leaders and business owners.

The IFBA was founded by Jean-Claude Vacassin. Vacassin is no stranger to the world of health and fitness and has supported hundreds of fitness professionals, globally, to transform their operation from surviving to thriving.

Vacassin said of the event: “Our first event last year was a phenomenal success. We had fitness professionals from across the globe visit us and spend a worthwhile two days learning about the latest innovations and being inspired to bring about change to deliver commercial success in their operation. We are lucky to be working with our headline sponsors again this year: MyZone and Freemotion, as well as other brands that will be exhibiting over the two days not to mention a superstar line up of guest speakers.”

Vacassin is committed to making the fitness industry a better place. He continues: “The IFBA Live event is a great way for members of the independent fitness sector to come together to network and share best practice. These guys really are the lifeblood of our sector but it can be a lonely place. The IFBA was set up to support, encourage and inspire PTs and gym owners to push boundaries, smash glass ceilings and challenge the big chains and boutiques. We have already sold hundreds of tickets and we look forward to welcoming even more people to our event in July.”

The IFBA is set to unite some of the most well known and influential names from the world of fitness to share their stories, learnings and expertise in a bid to educate and inspire other health and fitness professionals. The comprehensive schedule covers every aspect of leading a thriving fitness operation, from finance and marketing to staffing and programming.

This is a unique opportunity to gain invaluable insights from the industry’s leading lights and game-changers. The confirmed itinerary includes Dan John, Alwyn Cosgrove, Dave Wright, Frank Nash, Jay Ferruggia and Thom Plummer, to name just a few.
