Webinar: Capitalize on the Group Training Opportunity

The fitness industry is evolving rapidly, and the continued rise of specialized boutique facilities and group training programs indicate that this trend is as hot as ever. Changing consumer habits and our knowledge of fitness are two of the main drivers of this evolution. Exercisers are increasingly looking to experience fitness: to be part of exclusive fitness communities, to train collectively in a motivating and constantly changing environment, and to be held accountable and track progress. 

Join Mary Edwards, Director of Fitness at the Cooper Fitness Center in Dallas, Texas, and Erica Tillinghast, Global Education Manager at Precor, as they provide the six components to developing a successful group training program within your facility. During this webinar, they will discuss strategies to:

  • Drive community and build a new revenue-generating department within your facility.
  • Discover how to create a compelling, on-trend, and desirable club-within-a-club group training environment within your commercial facility.
  • Walk away with a manual of tools and ideas to change the landscape of your club’s financial standing and environment.
