Getting gyms back operational after Covid 19 lockdown – Go fit case study

Gyms have been identified as high risk areas for the spread of airborne viruses. The reason for this is the increase respiratory rates of members during work out and the increasing numbers of daily visitors. Gyms are being set strict measures that need to be adhered to in order to open safely. These include increasing air changes and improving the air quality indoors. Learn how GO fit gyms in Spain worked with Camfil to adapt to this challenge. By using Certified HEPA filter air purifiers and the right filtration systems, GO fit have set the framework for what is possible for gyms.

Following feedback and engagement from our partners in the UK & Ireland. We understand how challenging it must be for your organisation right now with the closure of your facilities and freezing of membership dues. Sudden drops in revenue require difficult decisions to be taken daily and enormous efforts from our leaders and wider teams to battle through.

Since COVID-19 reached the UK & Ireland shores, our team has doubled efforts to help partners tackle the unprecedented challenges facing our industry. Our team has been working tirelessly to provide expertise, high-class content, and agile solutions to support your organisation. This has included:

  • Free 60-day access to Les Mills on Demand (LMOD) for you to support your members with a world-class home workout solution to keep them active and engaged with your facilities.
  • Creation of 23 (and counting) new workouts with license-free music for your Instructors to deliver to members via livestream.
  • Unlimited access to marketing tools and assets, to engage members and grow your brand.
  • Ongoing training and education sessions to upskill your Instructors and customer facing teams.

Scaling up LMOD capacity to support the sudden influx of consumers has added to our financial pressure, but we are stepping up because we want to help, and we have valuable solutions to offer our partners during this tough time. There is, of course, a potential long-term mutual benefit from growth of the user-base, but for us each new user does not become cash-positive for 4 months (due to the 60-day free trial and music licensing costs per user), so this is also placing strain on cash flow.

While our focus remains on immediate solutions to help you through the lockdown, we are also developing tools to support your locations subsequent re-opening. This includes full-service relaunch support, plus tools to combine your physical presence with enhanced digital solutions, so that you can meet shifting consumer expectations and accelerate your growth.

As a valued Les Mills and Ireland Active member, we would like to extend our support to you all during these tough times. Please reach out to Blake Fletcher directly as your UK and Ireland Account Manager. We are serious in our commitment to build (and maintain) a healthy business as your survival is our survival!
