3 Tips for Planning a Milestone Celebration at your Gym

September 23, 2022 by

You’ve built a community of fitness members that feels like a family and now it’s time to celebrate all of your hard work and your member’s dedication! There are plenty of reasons to throw a party whether it be for the anniversary of your doors opening or your 100th member just joined, it’s time for festivities.

1. Pick Your Reason to Celebrate

Did your gym just hit its first year in business or maybe the tenth year? Did your 100th member just sign-up or did a long-standing member finally hit the elusive muscle-up you’ve been coaching them through? Sometimes it’s been years and you realize you haven’t celebrated anything and it’s time to throw a party as a thank you! Whatever the reason may be, find it, and get ready to those party hats on.

Pro-Tip: If you’re unsure of how many active members you have, Wodify Core is an all-in-one business platform that will help keep all of your information in one place. Already have Wodify Core powering your business and are looking for client-based reasons to celebrate? Dial into your custom reporting and you’ll find plenty of reasons to party.

2. Notify Your Members of a Date & Place

So you’ve identified that milestone moment, now pick the time and place. You don’t have to make it complicated and could even celebrate at the place you love the most: your gym! Be sure to give everyone notice well in advance. Create a Facebook event, blast it on social media, and let people know it’s time to party.

Pro Tip: Utilize Wodify Live for people to purchase tickets as a way for members to RSVP. If you want to charge a small fee to cover some of the party costs, you can do that as well!

3. Delegate Delegate Delegate

There is a lot that goes into planning an event, but you’ve already created a community that has become family, and more times than not, they are willing to help out! Take advantage of the team of coaches you built and ask them for favors! Help set up, break down, and hey, maybe there is even a DJ on staff you didn’t know about.

Pro Tip: Make it a potluck and have every member bring a dish they are famous for making. It’s a win-win. Save money on supplying the food and your members get to show off.
