Transforming an under-used studio into a virtual group exercise sanctum has a host of benefits to gym owners.
We share our clients’ insights into why they are converts to using FitboxVirtual® in their studio.
1. Instant profit
Virtual really is the most cost-effective way to utilise under-used premium space round the clock. Spin studios, for example, are empty 80% of the time, but with an investment into virtual – which costs less than some new treadmills – that unused space can generate income with no further outlay.
2. Smooth operation
You want your virtual group exercise service to run as you’ve scheduled it, with no staff intervention, as that’s just what virtual is designed to avoid. The simplicity of scheduling within just two clicks is just one reason why FitboxVirtual® is the preferred technology platform for many of our content partners.
Mark Talley is Group Fitness Development Manager at Everyone Active Group, and says, “The technology is flexible and reliable, and the support from the team with installations, on-going user training and advice has been particularly impressive.”
3. Fitbox is never ill – or late!
If your instructor is stuck in traffic, you can schedule a class to start on time, within just five minutes. With no disruption to your members’ routine, staff continue with their member-facing roles to reduce complaints. Everyone’s happy.
Joely Davie is Group X Manager at World Gym Australia, and she says “Virtual has been great for us, particularly when instructors suddenly can’t make class.”
4. What about the instructors?
Virtual group exercise classes doesn’t replace live instructors, but boosts live class attendance and raises the status of live instructors. After all, to move up from virtual and confidently attend a live workout represents a level of achievement for some members.
As Elaine Denton, Group Health and Fitness Support Manager at David Lloyd Leisure, says,“FitboxVirtual® is helping David Lloyd Clubs increase group exercise attendance and drive retention.”
5. Fresh, engaging content
FitboxVirtual® not only delivers the most inspiring and motivating workout sessions from the best instructors in the world, but guarantees the best and most current content available in an easy-to-navigate format. FitboxVirtual® is curated and updated quarterly, and ordered so users easily find the latest workout to suit their fitness, style and intensity.
Andy Logan, National Operations Manager at The Village-Hotels, affirms that “The reaction and feedback to Virtual has been uniformly fantastic.”
