Worldwide gym closures threw a wrench in all of our fitness plans in 2020, but hit boutique fitness studios especially hard. Because boutique studios rely on Community and specific workout plans studio owners have found themselves scrambling for ways to engage their members while they work out at home. Fortunately, FITIV Pulse has a solution for keeping studio members engaged, motivated, and working out so that they will be ready to hit the gym again when things fully open up.
Though the first phase of the COVID-19 quarantines may be coming to an end in many parts of the world, this situation has showed us all how important it is to prepare for the unexpected. FITIV Pulse can be a great tool to have heading into the ‘new normal’.
Here’s how FITIV can help:
FITIV Pulse is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, as well as Bluetooth heart rate monitors and smartwatches from a variety of brands.
Monitors from fitness studios like Orange Theory Fitness and F45 are compatible with FITIV as well, allowing you to track the home workouts from these studios at home.
FITIV Pulse easily connects to the devices you already use to provide you with the most seamless workout experience possible. Sync up to your Bluetooth heart rate monitor, Apple Watch or Airpods and get professional-quality data with easy to use equipment. FITIV also syncs with other apps to keep your data shared between the services you love.
In-App Community & Leaderboards
FITIV’s in-app Community can keep your members engaged! The FITIV Community gives you the option to create private workout groups for only your studio members. This helps your members encourage and communicate with one another.
Each Community group contains a leaderboard and a feed so people can share their workouts. The group leaderboard lets users compete with one another to push themselves even further.
Leaderboards give you the opportunity to allow your clients to compete with one another and measure their performance and how it stacks up against their peers. Leaderboards are configurable, so you can see how your clients are performing in therms of calories burned, miles run/biked, or in terms of FITIV Points. Whatever kinds of workouts you do there are leaderboard options to help you stay motivated.
What is one of the most important parts of starting a fitness journey? Accountability! It can be easy to underestimate your workout intensity. Working out in a class or studio setting can be an antidote. When you’re in the right environment it’s much easier to give it your all. Knowing that you’re being observed as well as feeling motivated by your trainers helps keep you engaged.
How are you able to replicate that engagement at home? FITIV Pulse gives you a variety of ways to get feedback about your exercise intensity! This makes it easier to track those home workouts. See if you’re working out hard enough and giving enough effort to your workouts.
