Burnt Out Thinking About Running the Open at Your Gym? Why not Monetize?

The Open is coming and you’re feeling tired already, anticipating the exhaustion you’ll feel after hosting workouts and post-workout socials on Friday nights in the upcoming weeks. 

It’s not just about the Friday night event itself, though. That’s the easy part. It’s about answering all the text messages and the hours of administrative work—from registration to inputting data and keeping track of scores—organizing the Intramural Open you’re running.

Sure, the Open brings a great vibe to your community and maybe helps a little with client retention—I mean, who quits the month after they get their first pull-up or muscle-up during the Open?—but you’re starting to wonder if it’s worth all the volunteer hours you put in each Open season.

This is exactly why Mike LeJeune has found a way to earn $5,000 in revenue each time he runs the Open, and has created a time-saving app to make running the Intramural Open at his gym considerably less time-consuming.
