Three Simple Fixes to Reopening Post-COVID-19
While most gyms are slowly starting to reopen across the nation and are filled with excitement, many of those same gyms are wondering if they will be able to maintain the same momentum and memberships they had before COVID-19.
Here are three simple fixes to ensure a smooth transition for the reopening of your gym:
- Advanced Scheduling System Software
Making sure your club has a simple way to manage equipment and class reservations is crucial during reopening, with all the new health guidelines put in place by the local authorities. Choosing an advanced scheduling software system provides unprecedented control of not only how your members make reservations and pay, but also the ease and control that admins have to manage a multitude of settings, such as which machines are open at a certain time, capacity issues for classes, number of reservations and more.
For example, rather than awkwardly telling a member they may need to stay clear of a certain area, with this software, you can create signups for an allotted time. That way, the members know for 15 minutes before each hour, there will be a sanitary period that ensures equipment is properly prepared for the next member.
- Updating Forms and Registration
With business slowly speeding up, now is a great time to update your current forms and registration procedures. Creating simple-to-use forms, such as a drag and drop form builder, gets people registering for your club in minutes in a very user-friendly way. This gives your staff more time to focus on members, rather than dealing with forms and registration. Have everything done in one easy-to-use platform.
- Accepting New Forms of Payment for Club Members
Do you currently only accept cash or credit cards from members at the club? How about adding a whole array of payment solutions for your organization? It’s more important than ever to be able to add new members to your club and have them be able to pay in a wide variety of ways. Many gyms are adding services like PayPal, Zelle, Venmo and even crypto currencies as a way to pay for memberships and classes.
