Hurricane Irma Heads for Florida

How Health Clubs and Gym Owners Can Weather Hurricane Irma

08 September 2017

Hurricane Irma has its sights set on Florida after pummelling Puerto Rico and is expected to make landfall by tomorrow morning. The sheer size of this storm means that an estimated 16 million people will be in its path.

We hope that you are taking all the precautions to protect yourselves, loved ones and that your gym members are doing the same.

Here are some steps you can take to reach out to your gym members and keep the lines of communication open during Hurricane Irma:

Notifying Gym Members of Closings or Schedule Changes:

ASF clients can use the my Scheduler app to cancel or reschedule classes until they are better able to asses any damage to your club or gym.

Quickly get the word out on any gym closings or safety suggestions by using my Reports to email members and/or my MobileApp, which would send out push notifications to member’s smartphones.

If your gym, club or studio has social media channels, use them to share any additional updates about closings and when you can re-open.

Handling Contracts and Payments:

ASF clients have the ability to temporarily freeze memberships until they are better able to assess when they can re-open.

You can reach ASF’s customer service department at 1-800-527-6898 (Monday-Friday 8:00 am-6:00pm MST), live chat access at our client log-in page at: or email us at
