DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Youfit Health Clubs members are tackling their fitness resolutions head on in 2017. In the first week of January, members have logged 24.7 percent more workouts than the same time period in 2016.
"When our members check in at least two times per week in January, we see steady gym visits throughout the rest of the year – indicating that the strong start drives them to stay committed longer," said J.J. Creegan, chief operating officer at Youfit Health Clubs. "Seeing this increase in workouts gives me confidence that our members are going to have their healthiest year ever."
While about half of Americans made a resolution this year, with a majority centered around improving health and fitness, studies show that only about 8 percent of people actually stick to them.
"We are really focused on helping our members reach their goals. Making a decision to start and then consistently showing up are the two most important ingredients for resolution success," continued Creegan. "To help incentivize 'showing up' we are rewarding our members for their January check-ins. Members who really start strong and check in 10 or more times are being rewarded with $10 gift cards."
Youfit Health Clubs is paying members to work out with its "JanYOUary READY" reward program, which was launched with the "YOU READY?" campaign. The $10 incentive is paying off big with Youfit experiencing the strongest start in a new year to-date.
"Recognizing strong commitment through the 'JanYOUary READY' rewards program is a small way to encourage and reward our members," said Creegan.
There is still time for current and new members to participate in the "JanYOUary READY?" reward program. The user-friendly Youfit Health Clubs mobile app is available via Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Upon downloading and creating an account, check-ins are automatically tracked on the "JanYOUary READY" tile. When 10 visits have been logged, before the January 31 close, users will be eligible to redeem a $10 digital gift card.
