With the end-of-financial year fast approaching, do you have fitness equipment decisions to make?

Tax time is coming! If you’re coming to the end of your equipment lease, have surplus budget to allocate, or if you’re fortunate enough to have a new budget to play with, then consider this your timely reminder that equipment isn’t a sunk cost, it’s an opportunity – to enhance the experience your members receive, and grow your membership numbers as a result.

The 2021 Global Fitness Report found that 33 per cent of members consider equipment a key factor for choosing a gym, while 22 per cent say the quality of equipment influences their choice of class. What this confirms is that your fitness equipment plays a critical role because its quality directly impacts the group fitness experience. And member experiences are the secret to growing your business. This is why LES MILLS™ SMART TECH has a proven track record, around the globe, of improving member retention, attraction and engagement.

Research has also shown that great equipment is considered one of the top two reasons as to why people attend their fitness facility. So if you have some fitness equipment decisions to make, then be sure to explore the award-winning, premium SMART TECH fitness equipment, which is scientifically engineered and rigorously tested to withstand high-volume use.

Georgina Breust, owner of Base Cycle Studio in Temora (NSW) said:

“When you invest in SMART TECH gear you really do show your clients that you are investing in them.”

Sam McCutcheon from Pinnacle Health Clubs in Victoria echoed these sentiments, saying:

“SMART TECH very much adds the sharp element to our group fitness studio equipment. It creates a seamless member experience, is nice, sleek easy-to-load bars and SMARTSTEPS®, enabling our members to set up and get into the zone in a faster, more practical way. And this big inclusion of SMART TECH shows we are committed to providing the best experience for our members.”
