MoveGB brings gyms together

Bristol has around 300 fitness providers and over 265 of them are part of the MoveGB fitness network - the largest collaboration of fitness providers in one city that our industry has ever seen.

The phrase ‘stronger together’ is a common theme throughout life, but what exactly are the benefits of such a large collaboration in the fitness industry?

It all comes down to consumer behaviour. We all know ‘retention’ is the biggest issue in the industry, we also know the precursor to retention is lack of attendance and that ‘re-join’ rates to the same provider are very low.

If we were to look simply at this trend you may conclude that someone joins a gym, loses motivation, stops attending and then never exercises again.

Of course that’s not what happens...

Company Details
MoveGB
Move is the online fitness platform where consumers go to get active, and operators collaborate to keep them active for life! ‘Movers’ can access over 5,500 venues and 35,000+ different activities for one simple monthly fee. They love trying something new from gym, swimming and classes to dancing, climbing and even handstand classes! Movers are proven to have twice the visit frequency and 4x the lifetime value of traditional gym users. So, by listing your activities with Move, you can drive new, high value revenue streams by connecting with Move members looking for convenience and variety.
