If you run a CrossFit gym you know the importance of WOD’s(workout of the day). Most gyms update these daily to push their members with challenging workouts. Some small gyms keep track of their WOD’s in the traditional way, such as pen and paper or using a whiteboard. In today’s world members want a way to access their workouts digitally instead of carrying a notebook around to the gym. Check out the advantages and ways to track WOD’s below!
It Tracks Your Member’s Progress
Most people decide to join CrossFit gyms because they want to improve their overall fitness and want to SEE RESULTS. Not all people actively track their workout results and doing so can be motivating. Once WOD’s are tracked, it’s much easier for members to speed up their workout times and strive for improvements. This gives them more confidence in going into future workouts.
Members Attend More Workouts
Having the ability for your members to see upcoming and past WOD’s is an incentive for them to book more classes or just workout at your box more often. They will also be able to see which workouts suite them better overall. By posting and tracking WOD’s gyms can market their workouts to members and boost interaction between them. At the end of the day getting people in your gym is the goal. New and intriguing workouts are the key to being a successful CrossFit gym. With so many gyms popping up, your gym needs to stand out.
