Fit For Success With Josh Leve Founder & CEO of AFS Podcast Episode 33
I had the great opportunity to sit in on a lecture with Josh at the NASM Optima 2018 Conference where he impressed me with his knowledge and wisdom in the fitness industry. Not only do his insights have value for the fitness professional, but he also understands the consumer’s needs and wants. A podcast episode must for anyone who wants to find fitness success.
Josh is a pioneer and leader with more than a decade in the fitness industry gives insight for fitness success. Josh is the Founder and CEO of Association of Fitness Studios (AFS) with 13,000 members and 60 industry partnerships. Josh’s success with AFS has translated into being featured in all major fitness publications, the Wall Street Journal, and US News. He is also a featured speaker for events such as Club Industry, NSCA, EMPOWER!, and more.
Running a fitness association and finding success in one of the most competitive industries was inevitable for Josh. His grandfather Mort (a member of the Handball Hall of Fame) was the founder of the National Court Clubs Association (NCCA). He was also an executive director of the US Handball Association (USHA).
His father, Chuck Leve (a member of the Racquetball Hall of Fame) and 40-year industry veteran, was executive director of the US Racquetball Association, a founding employee of IHRSA, and developer and builder of four fitness start-ups including IHRSA.
