What we do as health and fitness professionals and business owners is more important than ever. One thing we always strive to do is make personal connections with our clients and create a real sense of community in our gyms, studios, and practices.

But sometimes, for us, it can seem like we’re doing all this on our own.

That’s why we’ve created the South Carolina Health and Fitness Association (SCHFA). Our mission is simple: Connect. Educate. Represent. The Association gives you a space to network and share knowledge with others, facilitates educational and professional development opportunities, and provides the industry a voice in the State House. Together, we can strengthen and grow the health and fitness industry here in South Carolina while helping your businesses reach their full potentials.

Your Professional Community

The SCHFA is here to serve as a conduit for connecting and networking with your peers across the health and fitness industry. From monthly member meetups to virtual Q&A sessions and member spotlights, the Association has created a space for making connections and sharing successes and challenges.

An Educational Resource

Our industry is constantly evolving and growing and it is necessary to stay up-to-date on the latest education and best practices. Through your SCHFA membership, you will have access to free nationally accredited CEU training programs. Additionally, our Association offers weekly virtual training sessions on a variety of topics across the industry, from nutrition advice to business growth tips.

A Voice for the Industry

Currently, our industry does not have a unified voice at the state or local level. Legislators, council members and regulators are making decisions that affect your business. SCHFA will serve as our unified voice in front of these policymakers, advocating for higher standards and business friendly policies.
