MACMA Associate Members are helping Clubs stay connected to their Members

During this COVD-19 crisis, many of the MACMA members are trying to help Clubs find solutions to stay connected with members, prepare Clubs to reopen and keep members engaged with exercise. Here are some options to consider:

#1 Aktiv Solutions

At Home Training Tools to Support
Your Members During This Time

None of us could have conceived of or planned for a time when our gyms would be forced to close doors and shut out members. We are the pathway to healthy!  However, at this time we must temporarily adjust. This goes against every fiber of our beings … and our livelihood. Yet here we are. You are likely very busy developing new ways to extend your environment and offering to members in their homes.

#4 Performance Food Centers

Presented by Dan Young, Performance Foods

Understanding that we are all faced with many of the same problems, we saw it fit to find solutions.  We have now made it possible for all our customers to obtain Covid 19 disinfectants for equipment and the interiors of health clubs, along with hand sanitizers and PPE items like masks and gloves.  We are bringing these products to our customers at a very thin margin, just covering our cost.  Once clubs are up and running again, they should know that they will be able to properly be ready and then advertise to their members that they are SAFE!

#5 Soul Body

Presented by Stacey Vandiver, Soulbody Fitness

At Soulbody, we are trying our hardest to employ some of our instructors and we have our Master Trainers and Directors teaching via Zoom. Everyone has created a quality experience with sound and surroundings and we have had excellent feedback so far. 
The offer to Clubs is a week of 5 classes of their choice (they will receive the Zoom Link of their chosen classes). After that, we are offering monthly membership to clubs for 5 classes per week for $100 or 10 classes per week for $150. This is a very reasonable rate considering it is available to all their members with no instructor fee attached as we are paying them for their work and time.
