Increasingly franchisors of health clubs, fitness centers and sports fitness franchises are looking at new ways to develop and grow their business concepts and to help retain existing customers and attract new customers.
As a franchisee of any franchise industry, the franchisee must always be thinking of new ways to develop and market the business concept- products and/or services- to existing and new customers. This is what helps to grow the business and make it consistently successful.
So what's the new development in the health club fitness franchise sector?
Existing and new customers of fitness and health club franchises can avail of a new fitness club industry trend- that is the introduction of specialized fitness classes for the entire family. For example, mum and dad can attend their fitness classes and gym routine, while their kids can work out to fitness classes specially designed for children.
Parents and children get the added benefit of being able to work out at the same time and to go home together at the same time, while enhancing their wellbeing and fitness.
Creating a fun and exciting atmosphere within the gym, sports and fitness sessions will keep kids motivated. Classes could include swimming, dancing, kick-boxing, Tae Kwon Do and much more to help keep kids interested and parents happy. Also, children's admission to the gym and use of equipment should be strictly limited to certain times during the day and evening and at weekends, so as not to alienate other members of the gym who do not have children and like the way their "gym" operates as it is.
This new trend is currently been adapted by fitness club franchisors in certain areas of the US and sets to rise throughout 2008.
Watch this space!
As a franchisee of a franchise business whether it be fitness, retail, accountancy etc, you should always be on the look-out for new improvements to your business concept- products and/or services- and actively encourage new customers to enter/buy into your business.
