    FitnessCenterOwner.com is the most useful website that I have ever seen on how to run, own and manage a fitness center. I would recommend that anyone and everyone join the site and start learning things you never thought of. The biggest upside to the site for me is the discussion board. Fitness center owners can talk about various areas that they are in need of and can also have the opportunity to help others. So if you are reading this and have not yet joined up, do it now, as you will not regret it!"
