Let’s face it, a 50 minute class plus 30 minutes to and from the gym each day does not sound like a successful plan. How many different venues can you visit during a month?
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 29, 2013
Getting in shape, losing weight and avoiding unhealthy food are again the most popular New Year’s resolution for 2014.
Fitboo.com, a new fitness booking site, launches its operations in New York and Massachusetts supported by 40+ of the best Fitness Studios. A new concept that helps people to get in shape makes gyms more affordable and meaningful through three main features:
- Free Credit: With every purchase customers get credit that can be redeemed for new classes. It can also be used to discover new Fitness Studios. All of the earned fitboo credit will be automatically applied to the next reservation.
- Referral Program: By sharing with friends, customers can increase their referral base. As soon as one of the referrals completes a reservation, the customer will be credited with the appropriate amount. fitboo becomes a powerful source of new customers for Fitness Studios by rewarding recommendations (70% of consumers trust recommendations from friends, but only 10% trust advertising, according to a new report from Forrester Research.)
- Sweat for a Cause: fitboo’s customers can donate their earned credit to Save the Children.
fitboo credit has no limited access, no activation period, neither usage limits. “Let’s face it, a 50-minute class plus 30 minutes to and from the gym each day does not sound like a successful plan. How many different venues can you visit during a month? A good professional would recommend you to think about when you’re likely to exercise and consider a facility close to home or your place of work. fitboo users can discover new venues and test new activities with friends using their earned credit. Class providers will get the class full price; it’s not about discounts,” said Miguel Angel González, fitboo co-founder and CEO
The fitboo reservation system is fully integrated with the backend of each Fitness Studio (no coupons, no printouts needed) and it’s has no booking fees or administration fees charged.
fitboo helps gym managers to get more customers by fueling their online presence. The average Fitness Studios online bookings is something between 20% to 30%. “I’ve been working for the travel industry during 8+ years, where the online channel represents more than 70% of the total bookings. There is a big growth potential in the fitness industry. fitboo allows class providers to focus on what they really love, teach and help people to get in shape. Some of the fitboo founders own a gym, we know how hard is to engage new customers,” said Miguel González.
fitboo is a platform where people can find and book fitness classes. The Mallorca’s (Spain) based startup is currently live in New York and Massachusetts, and will be growing its Fitness Studios base and expanding to additional cities in 2014.
fitboo strives to become a world-class fitness community where everybody win (gym owners and costumers). By partnering all together, independent fitness studios can compete against big chains of gym clubs.
