9Round CHCH Dominate in 6 Week Challenge
Hear from multi club owner Paige Price on why she loves set time fitness challenges.
The main focus for our 6 Week Challenge this time around was member engagement. We knew that 6 Week Challenges increased revenue and we knew they helped see results. The 2 things we also knew is that people would stop after the 6 Week Challenge and revenue would decrease after it as we hadn’t figured out a bullet proof plan. This time around, instead of focusing purely on transformations we focused on a few simple things: EMOTIONS (really making people aware of WHY they want to change), SUPPORT (giving people the sense of belonging, the sense of leadership, the sense of encouragement) this created a support chain and everyone started motivating everyone! LIFESTYLE (making sure people continued to see results even AFTER the challenge), EDUCATION (holding seminars and quick videos to help educate members on certain subjects), CONTINUATION (Talking about the next 6 Week Challenge so members have committed them selves to the next one already).
Snap Fitness Donates over $130,000 to mental health awareness through 6 week challenge
Large gym chain uses fitness challenges to tackle mental health issues
Snap Fitness and 9Round Fitness Australia and NZ teamed up to take part in a 6 week challenge for the ages! The plan was simple. Get a large group of people together to improve their lifestyles and general wellness through fitness, nutrition and community engagement all in the name of raising both funds and awareness for mental health. With over 5000 members jumping onboard with the challenge it was a great opportunity to educate and inspire people to eat a more well balanced diet and start to move more. Snap and 9round teamed up with the mental awareness foundation which was founded by one of their very own franchisees. Every October the MAF do a 7km walk through Brisbane to raise awareness and funds to help support in the aid against mental health issues which contribute to the terrible sucide stats seen across Australia and NZ. The challenge was a great success and one that is already planned to repeat next year with more members and more clubs getting involved. The technology provided by nomergy was able to run the challenge, take in the data of the members progress over the 6 weeks and provide Snap and 9round with the members results and stories.
Snap Fitness NZ Corporate Stores Improve Retention
The battle to retain members is proving a winning one for Snap NZ
Snap Fitness NZ has taken a keen approach to ensure that they are delivering a solution to their members health and fitness problems in hope they will stay longer as Snap members. Snap brought in a new member onboarding process through nomergy as well as building 6 week challenges into their offering. The results are showing an over -2% decrease in attrition rates in two years (that is keeping an extra 20 members a month in the average club) and a 1% better preformance then non corporate clubs who dont follow the same process. Snap uses the Snap App (built by nomergy) combined with myzone to give the members the tools need to get into the habit of coming to the club within their first 6 weeks. Snap Fitness plans to continue to invest into the onboarding process it is developing to ensure that retention is forever improving.
"IT WAS GREAT TO BE ABLE TO REFER TO THE NOMERGY APP AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY."
I enjoyed the 8-week challenge and was delighted with my results. This is just the start of a healthier lifestyle for me. Huge lifestyle changes in fitness, nutrition and mind set.
A huge shock and wake up call for me was the body audit at the beginning of the challenge.
It was great to have the Nomergy app on my phone and be able to refer to it at any time of the day. The recipes were great, and I never thought I would do a meal plan every Sunday and make a shopping list for the week, but I have, and it is a great idea and will continue doing this.
I never thought I would be up at 6.15 in the morning and away to the gym. To be honest I actually enjoy my early morning cardio workouts. Not being a 'morning person', this is something I never thought would ever happen!
A huge thank you to Nomergy, Snap Fitness and Beatrice Day my personal trainer, I couldn't have achieved these results without you.
"THE APP WAS FANTASTIC AT SHOWING VARIOUS WAYS TO WORK OUT."
The gym routine helped with start other routines daily routines in my life. Things as simple as brushing teeth, cleaning my room and washing. Simple things, but they were always hard to get motivation and complete whole tasks when thoughts are all doom and gloom.
In terms of mental health, I'm getting much better at being self assured - not relying on others for motivation. I'm eating out less, eating healthier and saving money! I'm no longer depressed or suicidal. Yes some bad days every now and then, but it's temporary and I know I just need to work through it.
I never realised the value of investing time on myself. Going to the gym now gives me an hour for myself which I use to contemplate the day prior to what's coming up. Something so simple yes it has done wonders for my mental health having time to reflect and realise how far I'v come.
