Going to the gym can be a challenge – an exhausting one at that.
For those who stick with it, finding a sense of community is the key to building up healthy and regular habits. Using digital signage in your gym can showcase beneficial exercise advice, create a healthy amount of competition, and ultimately, bring members together and help lift each other up.
Here are 5 ideas on how you can use digital signage in your gym:
Exercise tips and tricks videos
The gym is a great place for people to stay healthy and keep active. But it can be a little confusing when there are so many ways of exercising without knowing if you’re doing it safely or effectively.
Use digital signage in your gym to showcase tips and tricks to help improve your member’s experience. It can be as simple as a video showing proper form when exercising, or a not so known hack to get the most of their time in the dym. You could even include some nutrition tips to help complement your member’s hard work.
Or why not feature a workout of the day? With Mandoe’s Digital SIgnage, you can easily schedule and update short videos with new workouts to keep everybody motivated.
There’s nothing like a little healthy competition to keep people motivated.
Maintaining an ongoing leaderboard for classes and programs can instill a greater sense of pride and a bit of fun into your member’s gym time.
Update your challenges daily, weekly, monthly – whenever you want. Switch it up and keep track of member’s steps, distance travelled, weight lifted – you can customise it to whatever you think will get the people moving.
And as an added bonus, an interactive leaderboard is a great way to engage your community and take your social media marketing to the next level via shares and posts.
Promote personal trainers with gym digital signage
You’ve got some of the best personal trainers in the biz, so let your member’s know who they are and how they can help.
Digital signage lets you easily display short bios on all of your friendly trainers and staff. Having these located around your gym connects members with your business and fosters a sense of community in what can sometimes be an intimidating environment. And when the time comes for members to ask a question or book a one on one session, they’ll feel comfortable approaching your staff without any hesitation.
Promote class timetables with gym digital signage
Gyms get busy. Really busy.
With the various classes, programs and sessions available to your members, it can be a little overwhelming keeping everybody informed of what’s going on. With digital displays like Mandoe’s Digital Signage you can easily schedule and display live calendars.
And the best part?
Using our digital signage builder, you can make all of your changes from any internet connected device. Got a trainer that can’t make it? Need to start a little later?
No worries. Make all the changes you need straight from your device and watch as they instantly update on your displays in real time.
Share success stories of members
Ultimately, people attend gyms to improve their health and lead an active lifestyle. It’s a personal journey, but hey – a little outside recognition doesn’t hurt.
With digital signage, showcase the success stories of your members and highlight how far they’ve come in their pursuit of better health. Not only is it great for personal growth, but it shows that your programs actually work, and with the right guidance all members can achieve their own exercise goals.
Get a head start
Technology has helped many businesses change the way they operate.
Gyms aren’t any different.
And considering how challenging it can be for most of us to get off the couch into the gym, anything that makes the experience friendlier and more accessible is going to get more customers through the door.
