You’ve heard this before – No enrollment fee if you join this month! Sale ends soon! Join today!
It’s the call that fitness facilities everywhere shout from the mountain tops in hopes that you join their club, especially at the start of the new year. Sure, it’s the time when everyone’s year is full of untapped potential and (if you live where we do) winter does it’s best to keep you indoors as much as possible. Not to mention if you’re like most people, you spend the holiday season indulging in the (not so) occasional advent calendar for a sweet treat. Long story short: It’s a perfect storm to push you into taking your health into your hands by joining a gym.
Since Family Wellness opened in 2011, we’ve always seen things a little bit differently. As a non-profit, our mission is to Inspire healthy lifestyles by connecting people in a fun environment. Part of that mission has been to eliminate obstacles that keep you from that healthy lifestyle, and for the past 9 years we’ve seen enrollment fees as just that – an obstacle. We’ve never featured an enrollment or initiation fee for anyone who’s wanted to be a part of Family Wellness. Our focus has been giving our members flexible options to make their membership work for them. That means not having enrollment fees, featuring membership plans without contracts, and only asking for membership cancellation notice by the 15th of the month previous of the effective date (which is only a 16 day notice at most). We truly want your membership to work for you.
Now, there is nothing wrong with enrollment fees or promotional campaigns. We may offer the occasional promotion to feature our awesome Personal Training team, or lift up the variety of our diverse Group Fitness schedule that’s included with your membership. We may also encourage you to join with member rates for Swimming Lessons, or even share that by being a member of Family Wellness helps teach 4th and 5th graders in our community how to cook healthy snacks at home thought our Healthy Cooking in the Classroom program.
We just really want it to work for you.
Of course this past year has taught us to expect the unexpected. Will we one day implement enrollment fees? Maybe. However, we haven’t had one in almost 10 years and don’t have one today.
