The fitness industry has become oversaturated with various clubs
operating upon the same revenue generating model-increasing client
membership. Today's landscape features intense competition between
low-priced clubs chasing the same heavy volume of new members. The heavy
competition has made it increasingly difficult to increase revenue. How
can a club increase membership cost and volume without offering anything
more unique than the other club options?
Personal training offers the largest potential for profit by providing
your club with a unique selling point that other clubs aren't
maximizing. By offering club members a higher return on investment,
owners can justify higher costs and a reason for club members to stick
"The fitness industry is evolving towards a training-centric model where
everything we do is based upon getting maximum results for the club and
their clients," says NFBA President Robert Creech.
The NFBA says FreeMotion's innovative lines of functional, cable-based
strength equipment-LiveAxis™, Genesis™ and Genesis DS-are the perfect
tools to transform clubs into a personal training and revenue generating
powerhouse. Unlike traditional, isolated strength machines, FreeMotion
allows the user to activate multiple muscle groups with free range of
movement. Whether they are elite athletes or people who work out in the
limited time they have, FreeMotion's world-class, cable-based products
are designed to engage their entire body in less time.
"FreeMotion is over a generation ahead with their equipment and was the
first major equipment company to understand the power of functional
training and what it meant to the future of the gym business," says
FreeMotion founded the first full cabled based circuit and believes that
cable based training is a critical part of the progression of fitness.
"Our mission to provide personal trainers with the most effective and
cost-efficient equipment possible fits perfectly with the NFBA's mission
to increase club revenue with personal training," says FreeMotion
President Pat McGinnis.
"Cable based training is safe, simple, versatile, and appropriate for
deconditioned all the way to elite athletes," says McGinnis.
The NFBA's two-day workshop "Fit.Biz.Con" teaches club owners how to
transform their clubs into this revenue-boosting model and how to market
it to the consumer. Business experts Rick Mayo, Thomas Plummer and
Jillian Russo will show club owners how to elevate themselves from the
saturated, competitive market of low-cost, high volume memberships to a
club that offers members more for their money. Owners can choose between
five workshop locations between April and September of this year.
