FitX: Health & Wellness Industry Club

The intersection of fitness, health, wellness, innovation and technology


About FitX

FitX is an industry club focused on the mental and physical fitness space - where market dynamics are changing how consumers access and/or track their health or wellness. We are industry-focused, function-agnostic and we serve Ross students interested in the health and wellness space. Our mission is to: 1) Provide experiential opportunities through relevant company partnerships, 2) Facilitate education to expand industry knowledge, and 3) Foster community with like-minded students, alumni, and industry experts.

The FitX board believes in trying to democratize fitness and make wellness accessible to all members of society. In this academic year (2020-2021) we commit to providing members ways to diversity their newsfeed about the wellness industry. At least one of our action-based learning projects this year will be with a Black-owned business and/or focused on DEI within the wellness space. We will ensure our guest speakers and programming include the BIPOC community. We are committed to taking action as a club through our platform and our programming and hope you will join us!

About FitXpo 2021

Evolving from our inagural trek to New York City last year, FitXpo 2021 is our first-ever multi-day event to convene executives and entrepreneurs around the most top-of-mind health & wellness topics, including the future of wellness post-COVID and the industry’s role in increasing access to wellness.

This year’s theme is “Forging the Future of Wellness” - where we will engage in discussions of the future of the mental, social, and physical wellness spaces with companies changing the game such as Exer AI, Oura, Fabriq, Headspace, and more. We are jazzed to announce there will also be an opening keynote by Joe Vennare of Fitt Insider. Explore the schedule below and register to get those zoom links!
