On-demand workouts have taken the fitness industry by storm and are now more important than ever with the necessity of virtual classes during a global pandemic. Fitness clubs have been waging with fierce competition from streaming workout providers such as Peloton and Daily Burn. During a pandemic, virtual offerings and tasks such as managing a club’s virtual class schedule have become top priority.
In fact, online-only fitness services are seeing considerable increases in membership as the industry adapts, according to CNN. This blog explores how a fully customizable class scheduler like My Club Business can make planning and administration easier for gyms trying to navigate social distancing guidelines and in-person capacity limits.
Affordable & Simple
Don’t get us wrong, everyone knows personal training is an awesome tool for reaching your fitness goals, but in today’s world, that means a hefty price tag and difficult social distancing. In many cases, personal training is prohibitively expensive for consumers grappling with lay-offs, or for parents who are teaching at home.
Virtual group fitness offers a trainer-led workout at a much more wallet-friendly price point. Without breaking the bank, clients have direct access to a trainer to workout safely and to answer any questions they may have.
With an automated scheduling system, group fitness becomes even easier to manage, with a room designer for limited capacity classes, scheduling conflict resolution and reliable email notifications across the board. That means more revenue for the club, more commission for the trainer and an easy booking process for customers. Instructors can schedule a complex series of classes while eliminating the concern of overlapping or incorrectly booked events.
The reduced price tag of group fitness might seem like a loss of revenue, it’s actually a pay bump. Instead of locking a trainer in with only one client for an entire block, group fitness maximizes a trainer’s time by giving them an entire group of clients. Additionally, these services encourage members to retain their membership rather than cancel when in-person workouts seem too risky. The benefits of virtual group fitness combined with the power of automation make it easier to maintain repeat attendance and keep a variety of classes scheduled out.
Group fitness classes with a customizable scheduler allow your club the simplicity and availability that customers and trainers have come to expect. My Club Business is accessible on any device and is easy to navigate with a simple drag-and-drop functionality.
