A Man of Achievement
I’ll have the pleasure of presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award to Rick Caro at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 5. If you've ever worked with Rick, you know what a knowledgeable and nice guy he is. He’s worked in our industry for more than 30 years and has devoted a lifetime to the health club business. He not only owned eight clubs for several years, but he also founded IHRSA, has spoken at most IHRSA and Club Industry shows, authored a financial book for the industry and consulted with hundreds of clubs over the years.
You can read more about Rick in this profile, which appears in our September issue: http://fitnessbusiness-pro.com/mag/fitness_man_connections/
Last week, we ordered the crystal award we’ll be giving Rick. It should arrive in our office this week. I’m hoping that it makes for a nice addition to the collection of other industry awards that Rick has already received through the years. —Pamela Kufahl, editor
