There are many ways to enhance your member’s experience. Start with your fitness program and exceeding the goals of your members. You want to create a space for your members to come together feeling comfortable to conquer their unique fitness goals. There is hardly anything more personal than sharing your fitness goals with your trainer. Members join the gym for different reasons but ultimately share one goal, to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Open Communication for All Your Members Diverse Needs
First impressions are always crucial in every relationship. You should first find out why your new member has joined your gym. You want to know what motivates your members and keeps them coming back for more. Open communication is the best tool to use to keep you and your members feeling connected.
For new members, a welcome kit along with a personalized email to celebrate their decision for a healthier lifestyle will help your members feel appreciated. Keep members informed with gym updates, promotions, product information, motivational stories, healthy recipes, newsletters, and more. You can personalize membership emails to celebrate individual birthdays and start date anniversaries.
Open communication means much more than sending emails. For members that may be too timid to have an open dialogue, you may want to display a suggestion box in the locker rooms. You can keep that line of communication open for everyone – this will encourage your members to share their comments and concerns with you.
Make sure your Members Love your Gym!
Members want to feel like they are getting the most of their time and money. As a business owner, you should learn to maintain your members with genuine trust and satisfaction. You want your members to feel like the value of your gym is exceeding their expectations and their dues. You want your members to walk out your doors feeling so much better than when they walked in. Positive member experience promotes membership retention and expands membership renewals and growth.
If You Build It, They Will Come!
Word of mouth, social media, and reviews are your best friends in the business. If you build your business with morals and values at its core, your business will succeed. People will appreciate the extra time you take with them. The little things bring us joy, like being acknowledged. When you remember your member’s birthdays, anniversaries, goals, and likes, they will remember you. And this is how you build an empire!Start a Fitness Blog!
