Every few weeks my small town has a summer open market- vendors offering wears, services and little things for family fun.
My gym recently got invited to do a small booth. Yet short of bringing in a squat rack and some barbells I’m kinda floundering as to what to bring. I want to offer strength training but that may be a liability without paper forms, and I’ve never expanded into yoga/zumba or other crowd friendly workouts.
Have you ever had small promotional events? What do you do?
My Bootcamp participates in our Business Expo in town. We set up a table with our promotional materials on it, flyers, cards, basic information, we also have a raffle drawing that gives items away such as water bottles, T Shirts, etc.
La Rue’s ideas are great:
People LOVE give aways: see if somebody in town will donate a healthy food snack that you can give away: have your name/logo put on water bottles and hand them out.
Can you have sample classes? Or exercises going to music?
A push up contest?
Can you bring boxing gloves and do a mini circuit some how?
Take a good look around your gym and see what you can easily transport, tubing, jump ropes?
It will be fun!
