To help address this challenge, we’ve recently upgraded our health club software with some new key features designed to help your gym keep your classes as close to full as possible:
Wait List. With Wait List, you can ensure all of your classes are fully utilized at all times. Here are some of the ways the Wait List makes that possible:
- Automatic wait list creation. Once a class is full, additional members who attempt to sign up are automatically placed on a wait list.
- Keeping members aware of new openings. If space in a class opens up due to a cancellation, an email is automatically sent to all members on the wait list.
- Easy sign-up process. Each email sent includes a link for members to enroll through MYiCLUBonline, our web-based gym software application. Your members can then sign up on their own without any assistance from your staff.
- Wait list removal. If a member is suddenly unable to attend a class due to a schedule change, he or she can remove him or herself from the wait list.
Accelerated Services. With Accelerated Services, your members who want to purchase a specified number of sessions, but who also need to finance the cost over a period of time, will be more effectively served. Accelerated services allows you to:
- Sell a block of classes at once. Instead of being limited to a certain number of classes or sessions per week, members can instead purchase a set number of sessions to use during a given time period, while still incurring the same monthly charge.
- Pay any balances owed early. Our new Accelerated Services feature also allows your members to pay the full balance for classes they purchase without paying a penalty.
- Offer unlimited plan flexibility. Members aren’t constrained to a certain number of classes or certain payment methods over restricted time periods. Instead, you can accommodate whatever works best for the member.
When your classes are full, you’ll likely notice a difference in your health club’s bottom line through higher member retention rates and a corresponding increase in revenues. And what club owner can argue against that?
