    ABOUT US

    Our Mission: The National Institute for Fitness and Sport (NIFS) is a non-profit headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana with a mission for improving human health through the lifespan. This mission carries us to 38 client fitness centers in 16 states across the country with our fitness management clients and beyond that in consulting work.

Our Clients

NIFS has been managing fitness centers and partnering with our clients to develop best-in-class fitness programming for over 30 years. That expertise allows us to partner with large and small companies as part of their employee wellness strategy, senior living communities to help their residents live well, multi-tenant properties to support occupancy, HOA’s of 55+ communities to showcase vibrant living, etc… We are also a great partner for organizations wanting to enhance their employee wellness program but the logistics of their workforce or a lack of an onsite fitness center leaves them feeling limited in reaching their employees. NIFS wellness program HealthYou provides clients with a dedicated NIFS professional to host onsite and/or virtual educational programs, nutrition services, fitness classes, health coaching and much more.

In addition, we partner with developers and architects to bring our expertise as operators in a variety of fitness settings to consult on the design and layout of fitness center construction and provide equipment recommendations.

Our degreed and certified staff are the best in the business. Their strong educational background combined with their passion for supporting the health and fitness needs of their clients plus the backing of NIFS tools and resources creates an environment where our staff thrive and your fitness center benefits. We integrate seamlessly with the staff and wellness teams of our clients and often times our members don’t even know we are contractors; and frankly we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Our Leadership Team

With a combined 70 years of experience in the fitness industry and time spent both managing onsite fitness centers for NIFS and now supporting staff across our book of business, we are uniquely in tune with the needs of both our staff and our clients.

We thrive on partnering with our clients to learn about their goals and customizing programs and services with our staff to reach those goals. Our clients have a lot on their plates and managing the intricacies of a fitness center, who to hire, and how to maximize engagement is often a tipping point in busy schedules. We love the opportunity to step in and relieve that burden with our 30 years of experience and our amazing staff. Meet our Leadership Team.
