Nexersys is at the YMCA in North Andover, MA. Cara Green, Health & Wellness Director took time to share how it has helped increase her member audience to even a few groups that you may not immediately think about. The diversity of user groups shows how Nexersys can be enjoyed by adults, teens and even kids! Group classes also help to get the most out of circuit training and get multiple members involved at one time. Great commercial gym fitness machine to get involvement from various groups, get current members reengaged and introduce fun fitness to those that stick to the same routines.
The Nexersys has been great! One of your Nexersys team members was hosting a training at a gym last summer and introduced me to the Nexersys. It was such a great workout and a ton of fun; I immediately wanted one…I convinced my COO to buy it.The great thing about it is we can target a new group of members with it. We serve a lot of families and tend to miss that 18-25 year old market. The Nexersys has been great for them. I originally emailed our members and told them about the product. I also set up appointments to do one-on-one trainings with them. As time went on, we decided to incorporate it into our circuit classes. People like it because it’s different and it’s a great workout. With the new software we are doing another push to get people to register and track their progress.
Fun for all Ages
Another group, and this is kind of funny, is the after school kids. One of the classrooms is right off of the gym. There are a few kids that are constantly getting into trouble and driving the staff insane. I used to run school age programs so I know most of the kids. I’ve been taking them in the afternoon for about 30 minutes to use the Nexersys to blow off steam. They LOVE it!!!! The staff is grateful as well.
I think that having a product that is different, fun and provides an alternative to your typical workout, has helped retain members.
