Welcome to ATN Power Players 24, an award spotlighting the 24 most influential business leaders who have significantly shaped the fitness and wellness industry over the past 12 months. Athletech News is dedicated to featuring C-Suite and other high-level executives who have not only made a significant impact on their respective companies but have also left an indelible mark on the industry as a whole. This exclusive list acknowledges outstanding achievements, whether it be a CMO launching a viral campaign, a CEO successfully navigating a turnaround, an HR executive implementing innovative benefits, or a founder disrupting a category by launching an innovative product.


Future Fitness Pioneers

Our selection criteria go beyond traditional roles, ensuring a diverse representation that includes but extends beyond just CEOs and founders. ATN is on the lookout for 24 exceptional “Power Players” who have redefined leadership in fitness and wellness.

Launching July 2024, the ATN Power Players 24 reflects the accomplishments of key executives over the 12 months between February 2023 and February 2024. The 24 winners will be chosen by the Athletech editorial team after extensive research, including a rigorous qualitative and quantitative assessment of each applicant.

Companies may apply with up to 3 executives. If applying with multiple executives, please provide separate application question responses for each executive, to the extent possible.

Selection Criteria

Organizational Achievements

Success in business is a team effort first and foremost, so the collective achievements of your company or organization over the past 12 months will be given priority in judging. Achievements such as financial success, new product launches and partnerships will be considered, along with a more holistic view of an organization’s growth over the past year. 

Individual Leadership Contributions

As an executive and leader, how have you directly contributed to the success of your organization as a whole and of your individual team members? Specific examples are appreciated where possible.

Industry Impact

How has your and your organization’s success over the past 12 months impacted the broader fitness and wellness community? Power Players will have an influence that extends beyond their organization and into the industry as a whole.
