IHRSA Store spring sale starts May 1

Spring is a great time of the year: rejuvenation, warmer weather, and an overall good feeling coming out of winter doldrums.

Another benefit is the season is that it is usually the time people and business clear out junk and stuff they don’t need in order to bring in something new and fresh.

The IHRSA Store is doing just that – the clearing out, not the junk – and at discounted prices. From May 1 through June 30 any purchases over $50 will come with a 15% discount and free delivery (in the U.S.).

That means the MP3, report, publication, webinar, merchandise, research and more can all be purchased for a huge discount.

Get fitness trends, consumer attitudes in Trend Report ... anytime

What would it mean to your club if you had this information at your fingertips?

  • Membership is directly correlated to income level. Thus, offering tiered membership options is the best way to attract the members with a variety of price points.
  • Clubs should offer group exercise sessions or member socials to encourage unmarried consumers to come out and get to know other members of the health club facility.
  • The majority of members keep coming back to use their health club to get or stay in shape and for overall health and well-being.
  • Women are more likely to cite the convenience of the location (64%) as an attraction to belonging to their current health club.

Of course information like this could do wonders on memberships, retention, sales, advertising, programming … really every aspect of your club today and in the future.

DVDs from IHRSA 2013 on sale

There is really no reason not to purchase a few DVDs from the 2013 IHRSA International Convention & Trade Show. Unless of course, you and your staff were able to get to every educational session and parlay the knowledge to each other. 

Since no one was likely able to do that, now is your chance to get one, two, hey, why not 10, DVDs.

And even if yoou were able to get to everything, the best way to let the rest of your staff who wasn't in Las Vegas really get the message of the presentation is for them to watch the video.
