I have a residential fitness business. The new place I am at is brand new and people just moved in. The classes have been slow moving. There hasn’t been a lot of participations. I want to create a challenge amoung all the residents! I want this challenge to have a couple winners at a certain period of time. When I can either reach out to sponsors or ask the property managers to give prizes out.
I think this may be a good way to get people excited and want to use my services more to reach their goals and win the challenge.
Anybody have suggestions on what I should do to incorporate all residents?
Including fun inexpensive socials etc.
Actually, I DO! My challenges are for the individual client to challenge him or herself. I play games with my clients from time to time to keep them challenged and to keep things interesting. During a training session, I may spring a “challenge” on them in which if they WIN, they get an “immunity” from something else that they might not like (I conduct these challenges very much like the reality show “Survivor,” including even having created an immunity idol for them!). It’s a lot of fun for them and me!
When I was in the corporate wellness arena as Fitness Director, I definitely did introduce periodic challenges for the members there as a way to increase their consistency in exercise.
