Members thrive on this reward mechanism, and see your health club as a destination for personal fulfillment. This has a powerful influence on retention and word of mouth. This is why clubs are doing themselves a serious disservice by not taking advantage of HR group training.
Some clubs may feel these classes are beyond their reach. As stated earlier, one of the main obstacles for introducing group training in some clubs, such as HV/LP facilities, is the cost factor. But that appears to be changing, and you can thank the biggest name in HR wearable technology for that.
Making HR Group Training Accessible for Every Club
It’s not every day that the standard-bearer in a category creates a price point that changes the game, but Polar has done just that. The company recently launched the
Polar H9 wearable that is its most affordable yet.
This opens the door to many clubs that have felt that HR group training was beyond their reach. And what makes this more exciting is that it’s coming from the company that all but invented HR training in health clubs. For more than 40 years, Polar has been synonymous with fitness technology, wearables, and wireless HR services in club settings.
Polar not only offers a range of wearables, including the Polar OH1+, Polar H10, the Polar Ignite, along with the new Polar H9, they’ve created an entire plug-and-play HR group training experience called Polar Club. Polar Club can set up any club with a complete library of programming, along with the wearables, technology, and a leaderboard to fulfill the social gamification that’s become a centerpiece of these workouts.
Polar ties all of this together with their Polar Club app and Polar Open AccessLink API. This state-of-the-art digital technology allows your members to connect Polar data with the most popular fitness apps and third-party gym equipment, so you can keep them motivated and engaged beyond your club’s walls.
Don’t let the wearable revolution leave you behind. With the plug-and-play ease of Polar Club and the new price point on their wearables, any club can take advantage of the power of HR group training.
