With Set4Play making your own branded workouts is easy and it means you can set yourself free from expensive third party providers and harness the skills of your existing Group Ex instructor base.
If you are a gym delivering Group Exercise to your members you are likely to already have a solid base of group fitness Instructors. Some of them may be freelancers, some could be directly employed either way you have (unwittingly) already overcome the most difficult step in creating your own brand of Group Exercise: pulling together a team who can provide the classes.
In that team you will have a wealth of innate talent, experience and education as well as a huge combined sum of years of delivering group classes: talk to them, see what they like, see what they think the members of your gym like, understand the key areas that don’t just make them tick, but hum like a finely tuned engine. Now come up with your ‘Brands’. Without getting into the whole marketing debate about the nature of ‘what is a brand’, think of it like this, something catchy that chimes with the style of your gym and your customers. Then give it a name that you won’t be embarrassed to tell your customers about!
Now think about the core fitness areas you want to address, Group Ex has a few well trodden paths that should not be neglected: ab workouts, HIIT workouts/circuits, leg workouts, upper body workouts. Plus you can come up with a few novel group ex workouts that will work well with your demographics and customer base.
