VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trainerize, the leading personal training software, is empowering fitness clubs to challenge the status quo, enter the world of online fitness, and deliver a new kind of fitness experience to their members.
In today’s market, despite rising concerns about population health and fitness, only an estimated 10% of fitness club members purchase personal training services citing cost, time-commitment, and intimidation factor as top roadblocks. This leaves the typical club member lacking the fitness guidance and motivation that could be provided by a club’s staff of trained fitness professionals.
Despite fitness clubs’ best efforts to help more members recognize the value of personal training services, this 10% ceiling has held steady, bolstered by the rising popularity of digital platforms and apps making fitness not only trendy but more convenient than ever before while also promising a new and extremely engaging fitness experience—no gym membership required.
This is where Trainerize can bridge the gap and help fitness clubs compete in the modern and digital fitness space. Through a branded workout app, fitness clubs can build and deliver training programs straight to their members phones, connect members with a trainer, and encourage members to track their progress in real time. Club staff can even use chat features to schedule in-person sessions or to build an online community for their members.
By adding online personal training to their roster, fitness clubs can deliver an enhanced range of services—more flexible and affordable than ever before—that cater to a wider audience of members. With options like 100% online training, hybrid training, and enhanced in-person training, fitness businesses can broaden their pool of personal training clients to up to 70% of their members, increasing their revenues and sending member retention rates soaring sky high.
