MEMO TO: Gym Owners in Asia: Go Social Or Die A Slow Death!

That's right! DIE!

 

In today's world 2013, if you aren't on several of the top social media networks as a gym owner or gym manager in Asia, good luck to you in the future. Or ....

 

 

 

 

What prompted me to write this blog? Well I just finished reading an article on LinkedIn called "MEMO TO CEO's: Go Social or Go Home" and it struck me that not only CEO's of major FORTUNE 500 companies aren't on social media networks but I reckon a vast majority of fitness gyms, sports clubs and golf clubs in Asia aren't either.

 

Here is the "MEMO TO CEO"S: Go Social or Go Home" article on LinkedIn.

http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20130812153711-15077789-memo-to-ceo-s-go-social-or-go-home?trk=tod-home-art-large_0

 

The article pretty much nails it about why CEO's aren't participating in social media networking. Quite an amazing statistic that only 28% of the FORTUNE 500 CEO's are on social media, considering it's a social media network driven-world. Based on my experience in Asia I reckon the number of gyms on social media networking is probably extremely low. I know this as a fact because I'm in touch with gyms all the time. "No can't be bothered" is one of my favorites sayings I hear all the time when I ask them about social media.

 

So - MEMO TO: Gym Owners in Asia: Go Social or Die A Slow Death!  This is a challenge to my business friends in Asia in the fitness gym, sports club or golf club business. Get on LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ and Facebook and use them for business purposes not monkey business. You maybe surprised by the results. Plus once the accounts are setup, it's really easy to use daily without too much of your time required. Or if you're really anti-social media networking assign one of the staff to do it for you.

 

 

 

Imagine a gym owner with hundreds of members and they don't communicate with them via any social media networking and consider that most likely the members are probably all hooked on social media especially Facebook and Twitter.

 

Imagine the opportunities lost to get out the club message to members about events or a new class that will be started soon or letting members know immediately about new products for sale or the latest juice drink available.

 

Imagine like the article mentioned that the competition is heavily involved in social medial marketing and taking away a lot of potential prospects from joining your gym. Or worse yet your current members.

 

My recommendation to gym owners and managers and I'm still really a novice to all that goes on in social media networking world (but improving); and that message is sign up on Facebook and open up a business page. Sign up for LinkedIn and find potential new members for your gym. Do Pinterest because its FUN - Gyms can show tons of photos of activities at the gym, share fitness, health and nutrition information. Pinterest is HOT! And I'm fairly sure your members will enjoy it, as well.

 

I'm on Pinterest and have 43 Boards of which approximately 30 are business related. One of the Boards is Social Media and I have a nice collection of Pinterest Pins associated with all aspects of social media, mostly "How to's." Another Board is called Blogs where I have posted all our previous blog posts. I also have some fun stuff like Hawaii My Home, Beer Me, Sports, Rolling Stones 50 Years and James Bond 50 Years.

 

Oh, How Pinteresting!

is a very recent blog post by Pinterest that will give you some insights into how Pinterest can be used for teachers. Just click the title for the article.

 

 

 

More importantly once you've started on some of the social media networks let your members know about it and ask them to follow you. Make a big deal about it! Give away a free healthy juice or a 1,000 kettlebell swings as an incentive to follow you. Ask them to introduce you to their friends = potential new members = $$$$. :)

Make sure all your printed materials, advertising and email includes all your social media network information.

 

Here are my social media networks and you are welcome to join me:

And if you're lazy or not confident enough  to write a regular fitness, nutrition and health newsletter to communicate with your members, here's something to consider. Check out www.paper.li.com and set up your own gym newsletter. It only takes a few minutes to set up initially and BINGO it goes out daily without fail without any involvement on your part required. Doesn't get any easier than that! Here's mine:

 

http://paper.li/JoeFitAsia/1375865538

 

I also write a VIP E-Fit Newsletter to top executives in Asia and the Middle East that goes out to approximately 100 people every week.

 

Bottom Line - So if you have a  "Can't be bothered" mentality maybe your members might develop the same attitude about your gym. Get active on as many social media networks as possible and watch your business opportunities grow. Social media networking is FREE, it's truly a gift to communicate with your members right away. Certainly a far cry from the days of preparing a newsletter to be printed and then mailed out. Being active on social media shows your savvy to what's going on in today's social media world.

 

Good luck!

And do it before your competition does!

That Untapped Market in Asia! Personally I'd Tap That!

 

The idea is to die young, as late as possible

 

-Ashley Montagu

 

 

Some interesting statistics regarding marketing dollars spent in the USA, which I guess really isn't much of a surprise. So far I am unable to find any such info related to Asia but my guess is that it must be pretty much the same.

 

Most clubs today cater to the 18-45 old demographic and completely ignore the 50+ age group.

Asia needs more gyms, equipment and programs that are suitable

for all ages and address the needs of everyone.

 

 

I've been living in Asia since 1978 in some great cities including Jakarta, Bangkok, Phuket, Kuala Lumpur, Manila and Singapore and I've traveled extensively throughout most of Northern Asia, as well. One thing that continues to catch my attention are the number of people mostly over the age of 50 who are exercising in the city parks mornings and evenings. I also noticed the parking lots full of expensive automobiles with drivers standing by waiting for the return of their owner. Aah, over 50 age bracket with expensive cars and drivers - does anyone smell success and money? What continues to puzzle me is why this age group aren't working out in the gym? Come to think of it, it's always been hard to find 50+ men and women in gyms either past or present. 

 

 

Why is that?

 

Simple answer really, we didn't cater to them, that's why! Or even begin too for that matter.

 

Why?

 

Are gyms afraid of the "Silvering" group? Damn, if that old guy comes in here and has a heart attack, then what? Or perhaps they are afraid of your gym, as well!

 

Is it that seniors don't feel welcome at most gyms? Most likely is my guess. Even clubs that have seniors like the big sports clubs don't seem cater to them with any special programs, even though the vast majority of members are 50ish. In addition, I've found Trainers are not at all up to date on training programs for the over 50's. And of course most Trainers know very little about nutrition, de-stressing techniques and absolutely nothing about hormone optimization (say what?). Trainers need to upgrade their skills, if gyms want to cater to this market or any market for that matter.

 

 

Another problem is that Asians generally feel that as they approach 50, they're already heading into their sunset years. A little education on this issue would be helpful to stop that kind of thinking. Medical professionals in Asia don't help matters either because they seem to reinforce that thinking. "Slow down, take it easy, play bingo! Me, I'm always 39 and I'll take up bingo when I'm 110. My philosophy is that of Dr. Jeffrey Life's saying below.

 

 

In this day and age of fitness gym competition, it really seems crazy to me, not too market to the 'Silvering" group and make it part of your club branding message. Build it and they will come? Maybe! I certainly believe that they are waiting for you to do so.

 

 

Meet Dr. Jeffrey S. Life at age 58....

 

 
Here's Dr. Life at age 74!
 

 

 

And let me hear a big AMEN! Great quote!

 

 

 

By the way Dr. Life is the author of 

 

 

 

Fit at 102: Ray Clark is proof that it’s never too late to start exercising

 

 

Ernestine Shepherd was the oldest competitive female bodybuilder in the world, as declared by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2010 and 2011; as of 2011 she was 74 years old.

 

 

 

 

Did you ever wonder what a 70-year-old looks like if they eat healthy and exercise? Take a look at personal trainer Linda Wood Hoyte...

 

She just celebrated her 70th birthday!

WOW!

 

 

At Club Performance Systems, Club Solutions Asia and Health-One Thailand, we believe that a large number of currently inactive people over the age of 50 will become active, if given the appropriate education, programs and equipment.

 

Plus the ageing population and the high cost of treating of illnesses are becoming a major motivating factor for the promotion of wellness....

 

Based on these two important issues, we conclude that there is a HUGE untapped market waiting to join your club, that is:

 

"If you differentiate your club from the competition"

 

 

 
 

Equipment...

 

Research has shown that strength training in the elderly reversed oxidative stress and returned gene expression in 179 genes to a more youthful level, making them 10 years “younger.”

 

 

 

 

If you've read any of our past blog posts, you know that we heavily promote bioDensity and for a very good reason and here are just a few of them:

 

For starters its great for the over 50 gang, men and women (actually from ages 12 and up).

 

Quincy Jones Turns 80.. Big fan of bioDensity.

SCIFIT Fitness Equipment for the Active Ageing Market...

 

 
Recumbent Stepping with SCIFIT Step One
 

 

 

 

I think you'd be surprised how many of the "Silvering" group would like to be just like Dr. Jeffrey S. Life, Ray Clarke, Linda or Ernestine Sheppard, if gyms just opened up the doors and showed them the way.

 

Gym owners what are you doing to cater to this all important 50+ market that has money to spend?

 

We are clearly at a time where we are already “rethinking aging” and hardly a day goes by where you don’t see some new study or article being published about how to live longer and healthier. So it’s time for gyms to get with the program and start “rethinking” their markets and start catering to the “Silvering” group. But don’t think too long because your competition maybe already “out thinking you." I believe once you get a program rolling and make it a success, I seriously doubt this group of people will jump ship for a new club that has opened down the street. And I bet they will be a much more loyal group of members. The potential is great! Don't delay!
