As gyms start to welcome back members post the Covid-19 imposed lockdown, new capacity restrictions and social distancing rules require implementation whilst there is also a need to maintain contact with members who are unable or unwilling to visit the physical facility.
Here, we speak to Rob Lander, CEO at Fisikal, about how Fisikal solutions help fitness studios get back to business.
The Fisikal business management solution enables the creation of a digital visitor booking system. Total facility capacity and individual activities can be independently configured to set maximum booking numbers with automated alerts informing when near and total capacity is reached.
Individual booking periods e.g. bookings open 7 days in advance, can be set to help members manage their schedule and to give everyone an equal chance of securing a slot. There are also options to assign ‘booking privileges’ to specific membership categories.
Through unique ‘room mapping’ functionality, a ‘map’ of a studio is created, showing the exact location of equipment within the space, applying the necessary social distancing requirements.
Via an app, members are then able to book the exact piece of equipment e.g. group exercise bike, Pilates Reformer, Suspension Training straps they wish to occupy or a specific studio position, perhaps near an exit, window or instructor.
KEEPING IN TOUCH – WHILST PHYSICAL DISTANCING
Reduced capacity and potential consumer anxiety relating to training in groups, may mean some members are unable or unwilling to attend a physical facility whilst Covid-19 remains a threat.
It is imperative studio operators maintain a connection with these members. Through the Fisikal live streaming platform, members can enjoy the classes and instructors they love from the comfort of their own home. This functionality can also be supported by a comprehensive library of bespoke or generic on-demand fitness content and workout plans.
In addition, the in-app communication channel enables two-way conversations to ensure members continue to feel connected despite no or limited physical contact.
