Molly Kemmer has made great strides since she entered the fitness industry at age 18, when she earned a group exercise instructor certification.
After receiving a personal trainer certification and a master’s degree in exercise physiology and health promotion from Illinois State University, she went on to positions of increasing responsibility at a number of clubs in the Denver area. In 2012, Kemmer joined EXOS/MediFit, a leading global fitness and wellness management firm, serving as the general manager of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at the University of Colorado; in 2014, she became EXOS/MediFit’s regional director of community services.
Then, in 2015, she was elected the chairperson of IHRSA’s Board of Directors.
With her term expiring in June, Kemmer spoke to Club Business International to reflect on the new ideas, challenges, and changes the past year has brought. Her interview was filled with sage advice, which we boiled down to three secrets to health club success.
