The Whole Country Club World Is Changing..

It's no longer solely driven by golf!

 

 

 

"Holy Squats, Deadlifts & Kettlebell Swings," its finally happening! Country Clubs are indeed changing and offering fitness as part of their facilities. That's exactly what's happening according to a recent article I read "Country Clubs Using Fitness To Broaden Reach." Needless to say "good on them" for doing so because its been long overdue. The best part of adding fitness programs is that it will surely enhance the clubs value to members and the community. Please see my previous blog post I wrote entitled "5 Ways To Boost Revenue At Your Golf & Sports Clubs," (article in 3 PARTS below this post).

 

 

The whole country club world is changing.

It's no longer driven solely by golf.

 

http://www.iclubs.com/business/country-clubs-using-fitness-to-broaden-reach.html

 

Needless to say clubs that are pro-active and introduce new and innovative ways to attract new members, will also retain members and increase revenues ='s a

 

“Win-Win"

 

In recent years GOLF has taken a BIG hit financially with a decline in the number of players, as well as golf courses closing at alarming rates, especially in the USA. So what's wrong with the industry today?

 

Price & Time Factor

 

Golf is expensive sport, time consuming and with the recent economic down turn a few years ago, many dropped the sport. Fortunately here in Southeast Asia you can still play a round of golf on many courses for $10-15 on a weekday.

 

"I don't have enough time!"

 

That's an excuse used by many and not really justifiable in this day and age when a complete program can be done in under 40 minutes, and if really pressed for time under 20. So excuses that it takes too long are no longer a valid one and thus clubs will have to learn to educate their members that it is not only necessary to help improve their game but for the player's overall health, as well. Here's a further note to the excuse, "I don't have enough time."..

 

It isn't about "Having Time"

It's About "Making Time"

 

So what are “Pro-Active” country clubs doing to upgrade their clubs:

 

  • Large fitness gyms with group fitness, spinning and personal training
  • Tennis
  • Kids splash pool
  • Lap pool
  • Spa
  • Hot tubs
  • Poolside bistro
  • Paths for jogging and biking that loops the community
  • Libraries
  • Additional dining options

 

(Special Note On Personal Training - hire qualified personnel with a fitness and nutrition background. If in-house staff continued education (invest) is a must for the long term success of the program,)

 

In 2015 Country Clubs have a choice of being either pro-active or stagnant in their thinking. Being stagnant already shows a decline in membership and revenues and a worse case scenario of going out of business. Not much to think about really!

 

Here's an interesting article I stumbled upon on LinkedIn that sheds some light on why golf courses are losing money.

 

Golfnow Is Your Biggest Competitor

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/golfnow-your-biggest-competitor-benjie-lewis

 

 

Some ideas for Country Clubs to Consider:

 

 

Rainy Day & Night Time Fun = $$$$

 

 

Golfers can never get enough golf, so why not offer an Indoor Golf Simulator for some more fun after a round of 18. Sports Coach Systems (UK) for example offers driving & putting contests and competitions between other clubs. In addition, Indoor Golf Simulators is a great way for the Club Pro to offer golf lessons at any time of the day or year, rain or shine.

 

Please visit our SlideShare presentation “The World of Indoor Sports Simulators" to learn how Indoor Simulators can be a profitable business.

 

http://www.slideshare.net/JoeThailand/indoor-golf-sports-simulators-2014-by-healthone-thailand?xrs=RebelMouse_fb&1416196471

 

 

Sports Simulator is a simple software upgrade to the Golf Simulator

 

 

 

PLUS NOW AS AN ADD-ON OPTION

 

 

 

 

Fun & Fitness for Mom = $$$$

 

 

 

Virtual Group Fitness is a leading trend in the industry now, with large club chains and residential facilities adopting it all over the globe. Here are some of the benefits of virtual group fitness, as well as the value add to members.

 

In a recent report asking fitness gyms about Virtual Fitness, data was collected from over 6,000 members in 3 different countries. Here is just a few things about what they had to say:

 

1. Over 50% of members were influenced by the number of classes on the group fitness schedule when buying their membership.

 

2. The top 3 reasons people use virtual group fitness are:

The flexibility of it fitting their schedule

The added variety of class options

Non-intimidating environment of a virtual class

 

 

Thinking of Virtual Fitness for your club?

Here's a few good reasons to just do it.

 

WELLBEATS for example is an easy program to use 24/7/365 with a wide variety of programs for all ages and new updates introduced regularly. Virtual Group X is an opportunity to provide classes to women's groups, followed by a healthy organic lunch with fresh foods from the farmer’s market. All of which, will leave a great impression and provide super word of mouth advertising about your club.

 

 

And Kids 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's some interesting numbers to consider by investing in WELLBEATS.

 

SPACE:

 

For example let's take a 150 square meter room, which will hold approximately 40 students (or approx 4 square meters per person). If no extra room is available then consider an under-utilized conference or ball room for the program.

 

Potential Income:

 

Offering only 5 classes per day of 50 minutes each x 15 persons per class = 75 persons per day x US$3 per = $225 x 20 days = $4500/month x 12 = $54,000/year. Very conservative figures and not to shabby for a program that practically runs itself.

 

On the other hand, if you hire a free lance instructor at a minimum of $25 per class x 5 classes per day = $125 x 20 days = $2,500/mo x 12 = $30,000 yearly. This may well be a reason Country Clubs rarely offer classes.

 

Country Clubs with swimming pools of depths of 4 feet or more, we have a fun idea for you to offer the kids (adults too) and it’s called

Seniors.. Welcome to

 

 

 

 

 

 

As I mentioned in my previous BLOG, Country Clubs and Sports Clubs can easily fit a workable gym in as little as 30-50 square meters with equipment that will provide a complete workout. You can find all the details below in our previous post.

 

 

 

 

 

Here's more on SCIFIT...

Finally here's an idea I'd like to float to Country Clubs: Great way to say to members and the community- "We really are health conscious-minded."

 

Try Organic Farming..

 

 

I hope the above information helped create some ideas to adding new and innovative equipment and programs to clubs.

5 Ways To Boost Revenues At Your Golf Or Sports Club PT3

Welcome back to our final Blog Post about the 5 Ways To Boost Revenues At Your Golf Or Sports Club PT3..

 

In post 1 & 2 we covered potential revenue sources from Sports Coach Systems Indoor Golf Simulators, Sports Simulators and WELLBEATS - Virtual Presentation - Live Experience. If you missed those posts please go to the bottom of the page and look for "Previous" and click.

 

In this final post we are introducing a product that is not a "fee charge" type program but a great investment for the club to attract families to join and let their children (adults 2) go AQUA CLIMBING. It's another great and FUN product to help drive new membership sales, retain members and help "differentiate" your club from the competition. Also in this post  we're introducing a product and program that allows you to have a fitness gym in a little as 25 square meters.

 

So we are pleased to introduce you to....

 

Aquatic Climbing:

Healthy Exercise for Body and Mind

 

With child obesity rates skyrocketing, people are looking for more creative ways to coax kids away from the X-Box and into physical activity. Team sports are one way to give kids regular exercise, but not all kids thrive in competitive situations, and those that are less athletic than others can be inhibited from joining for fear of making a mistake and incurring the wrath of their teammates. That's where individual sports come in. Running, biking, swimming and climbing are all things kids can do for healthy exercise, and the only person they're competing with is themselves.

 

Developing Physical and Mental Skills..

Aquatic climbing is a terrific option because it's an intense physical activity that develops coordination, strength, and flexibility. Plus, aquatic climbing is safe when compared with contact sports and traditional climbing walls, so it's a good way to avoid injuries. The perfect way to introduce kids to aquatic climbing, AquaClimb creates an extremely safe poolside adventure where kids (and adults) have fun and get fit. Climbers swim up to the AquaClimb and the climb starts slightly below the pool surface. They climb as far as they can without using ropes or belays, and when they let go, they make a harmless splash, adding to their fun.

 

The mental benefits of aquatic climbing are just as important as the physical ones. In today's world of increasing distractions for youth, mental focus skills are much needed for success now and in adulthood. Because aquatic climbing requires strategies and focus, children who have difficulty concentrating can often develop mental focus by doing it. It's rather like a puzzle kids need to unlock, and sometimes they must look at the wall again. and start over. This helps kids learn to focus, concentrate and persevere, essential skills for getting to the top (of the wall and in life).

 

A Natural Way for Kids to Push Themselves..

The best part of aquatic climbing is that kids tend to be natural climbers. They have a high strength-to-weight ratio -- which means they have less body weight to haul up the wall than adults do -- and their bodies are more flexible. They're also not fearful (but if they are, that's normal, too), and they are less likely to see their body as having "limits" on what it can do.

 

Because aquatic climbing requires a combination of creative thinking and physical output, less athletic kids often do quite well, surprising even themselves. They also learn problem solving. Along the way, they gain confidence, competence, strength and body awareness. Aquatic training is an intensely personal achievement for kids -- something they can carry with them to other areas of their life.

 

*The above info is material directly from AquaClimb news.

 

 

 

 

 

AquaClimb is a quick growing brand amongst the giants of the aquatic industry. They have a big mission--to bring innovative and original recreation and fitness solutions to pools worldwide. With hundreds of AquaClimbs installed and over a decade of experience AquaClimb can safely say that they are the market leader in poolside climbing wall products.

 

 

With AquaClimb Classic product range, you can choose among five designs, four different height options, and as much width as you want. The result? A customized design that works perfectly for your facility.

 

      
 
 
     

 

 

 

If You Want a Fitness Gym and Have 25 Square Meters of Space, We've Got The Solution!

 

Yes in approximately 25 square meters of space you can have a Strength & Cardio Gym because that's what 

 

provides...

 

SCIFIT exclusive Fit-Quik program combines the sports science of interval training, cross training, strength training and cardiovascular training for a results-producing workout. Fit-Quik takes the user through two stages, cardiovascular and strength. The time and intensity of these two stages can be customized by the facility to create a custom circuit. Fit-Quik can be performed on a single product, or a combination of SCIFIT products as a circuit. This easy to use circuit provides smooth traffic flow and great variety. The movements are simple – pedal, walk, push, pull – and the user controls intensity levels, so anyone can get a great workout with Fit-Quik.

 

Here you can find out more about Fit Quik program and all the other benefits of SCIFIT.

 

 

 

 

Whether your club decides to charge for the use of the gym or not SCIFIT Fit-Quik Pods will add value to you club by helping drive new member sales, as well as being a very good member retention tool. In addition, SCIFIT is ideal for Personal Trainers allowing them to offer Group Training sessions using Fit-Quik Pods.

 

 

Who trains with SCIFIT? Just to name a few but they include Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Harrison Ford, Olympic Swimmer Ryan Lochte, former SF Giants (my fav team) player Barry Bonds, professional sports teams, plus numerous universities and sports performance centers.

 

 

Of course if you would like a larger gym we have some truly great products to offer such as: Woodway Curve, BILT by Agassi & Reyes, Biodensity, Jacobs Ladder, Abs Company, reACT, MU-JO, Helix Trainer, Canali Systems and Digi-lock for locker security and Celare Lockers. We got you covered!

 

 

We hope that you enjoyed the 3 Posts outlining some ideas to increase revenues for your club. If you have any questions please contact us. Helping clubs differentiating themselves from the competition is what we do. Please contact us if you want to start differentiating your club today.

 

 

Thank you.

5 Ways To Boost Revenues At Your Golf Or Sports Club PT2

Welcome to Part 2: 5 Ways To Boost Revenues At Your Golf Or Sports Club...

 

Part 1 we presented Sports Coach Systems Indoor Golf and Sports Simulators as two ways to potentially boost revenues at your club via per session fees but it can also help drive new member sales and serve as a great membership retention tool.

 

Now let's look at another great product that we believe is also a powerful revenue source because of its relatively low investment cost, as well as, its ability to generate good income, which can result in a faster ROI due to the potentially high levels of participation by members.

What Size Space Do You Need for WELLBEATS?

100 square meters will allow you to conduct classes for approximately 22-25 students.

75 square meters approximately 20 students per class.

 

WELLBEATS can easily be installed in a conference or banquet room. Fitness problems solved. Hello Happy Members.

 

What are the benefits of having WELLBEATS at you club?

 

Classes can be offered 24/7 either scheduled or classes on demand (private groups such as a private corporation or a morning Ladies program followed by healthy lunch).

 

Over 50 different types of classes available.

 

Don't have to worry about finding a qualified Trainer - WELLBEATS has got you covered

 

Don't have to worry about a replacement Trainer if your regular Trainer can't make it

 

Don't have to worry about what type of classes to offer - WELLBEATS has got you covered

 

Freelance Trainers can cost between $15-$25+ per class. That gets expensive if you offer 5 or more classes per day, like $75-$125 and the club has to charge higher fees just to try and break-even. It may well be the reason clubs don't offer group fitness programs in the first place. With WELLBEATS you can offer unlimited classes and it doesn't cost any more.

 

WELLBEATS is  "A Diamond in the Rough" for golf or sports clubs because it runs itself. ROI possible within one year.

 

There are over 1500 locations in the USA using WELLBEATS.

 

Some simple MATH to consider - Assume only $4 fee per class per person. Assume maximum 25 students for your space. Assume only 50% usage = 12. Assume only 5 classes per day = 60x$4 = $240/day. Assume only 300(low) days per year = $72,000 - we believe these numbers are conservative but even so it's possible to recover ROI within the first year plus PROFIT. Please note that these figures are our estimates only and may vary from country to country and from club to club.

 

SPECIAL NOTE:  WELLBEATS has great potential as a stand -alone business. It practically runs itself.

 

WELLBEATS also ideal for fitness clubs, corporations, schools, universities, hotels and resorts.

 

Coming soon Part 3 of 3 - Aqua Climbing and SCIFIT Fit Quik Pods for your club.

5 Ways To Boost Revenues At Your Golf or Sports Club - PT1

Part 1 of 3

 

Looking for some dynamic ways to increase revenues at your club?

 

What kind of revenues do you generate on a rainy day at the golf club? Probably pretty low at best is my guess. And clubs that deal with winter conditions have some real challenges to generate income. Some even close for the season but do they really have too? Is your club getting the whole family to the club on a regular basis?

 

"Entertain Them And They Will Come?"

 

Here are some ways to increase revenue at your club, drive new member sign-ups, retain members, increase more traffic to the club and stay open longer = $$$$$.

 

Let's Go Virtual!

 

Should Golf clubs offer more golf? Yes golfers can never get enough golf!

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.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2013/03/13/quincy-jones-turns-80/1983777/

 

 

 

 

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!

Do Golfers Hate Training in the Gym? We Have A Solution!

 

 

 

From an Asian perspective only..

 

I'm sure not all golfers hate training in the gym but my guess is that a vast majority of them fall into that category. The good news is that younger generation golfers are starting to take their fitness seriously, thanks to the likes of today's top professionals leading the way with fit and strong muscular bodies. However, at the club level, training in the gym seems to be a dirty chore to have to do. I love golf and have been playing off and on since the age of 7, and I've been weight training since the age of 14. And, for as long as I can remember, I have long preached the gospel of weight training and its many benefits (fitter, stronger, improve golf game) to my fellow golfers. Unfortunately I've had better success talking to a golf ball.

 

Why is that? Answers and solution, plus EXTRAORDINARY offer below...

 

But first let me share one of my fondest golf memories that happened not so long ago on the beautiful resort island of Phuket Thailand.

 

Phuket was my home from 1995 until 2003 and I was priveleged to have been asked to be a course marshal at the 1998 Johnny Walker Golf Classic at Blue Canyon Country Club. On Pro-Am day, I had the great pleasure of meeting the exciting new guy on the tour named Tiger Woods. Tiger signed autographs for us and took a few photos with my 8 year old son Gavin (half Thai/American like Tiger).

 

Most memoriable of that tournament for me was enjoying a few cold beers in the club house chatting with Tiger's father Colonel US Army (RET) Earl Woods, talking about our military days (the Colonel served in the US Army Special Forces and this blogger - US Marine Corps Force Recon), plus life inThailand and raising our kids. Certainly a conversation that I will never forget. Tiger went onto win the tournament coming back from 8 shots down shooting a 7 under par 65 to tie Ernie Els for a sudden death play-off and then winning on the second hole. It was a very exciting golf week!

 

Side note - Tiger's real name is Eldrick but the Colonel began calling him Tiger because one of his best friends in Vietnam was a South Vietnamese soldier, Col. Vuong Dang Phong. Col. Phong's nickname was "Tiger," and when his son Eldrick was born, the Colonel took to calling  Eldrick "Tiger," too, after his friend Col. Phong. Col. Phong lived barely a year after the fall of Saigon, dying Sept. 9, 1976, in the squalor of a Communist camp.

 

 

 

When I started my career in the fitness business, I trained people of all ages and abilities and when I opened my first fitness gym in Jakarta, Indonesia in 1978, we had members from all walks of life - all except GOLFERS. We offered golf fitness programs to try and attract them to join. I wrote articles in various publications preaching the importance of starting a fitness program to build their strength and improve their game. I even advertised that we offered fitness programs for golfers. But to no avail. Just couldn't get them interested..

 

For the life of me I couldn't figure out why I couldn't attract golfers to my gym. After all they needed fitness as much as anyone else did. Perhaps I was doing something wrong but when I asked my fellow golf friends why they didn't want to join, 99% of the time the answer was the same - "I get plenty of exercise playing golf & the gym takes too much of my time". Well unfortunately to this very day I still hear those same words echoed throughout the region.

 

Two deadly sins golfers should be aware of....

 

Sin #1  - Not engaging in a year round fitness program

 

Sin #2 - No warm up. Golfers do not warm up properly before starting their round of golf. Surprising golf related injuries are common place and include back, shoulder, elbow, knee and carpal tunnel syndrome, just to name a few. Injuries often resulting in weeks or months to recover and worse yet, no golf. The coil and body torque of the golf swing without being properly warmed up is an injury waiting for a swing to happen. Taking a swing at that little white ball at clubhead speeds of 100+ mph can easily strain or pull a muscle or two. It happens to even the best players in top physical condition.

 

Bottom line: Incorporate weight training and joint mobility exercises into a year round program. Good swing mechanics are also vital to help prevent injuries.

 

2013 - more fitness gyms in the planning...

 

Golf membership clubs in Asia are slowly but surely adding fitness gyms facilities to their clubs. Most players, however, do not avail themselves of the facilities to improve their fitness levels and game. Usually it's golf and only golf. My take on this mindset and lack of interest are: 1) the club does not educate their members on the benefits of a program. 2) there are no specific golf fitness programs offered. 3) often times there are no Trainers hired for the gym and members are on their own to workout. So good luck in trying to figure out what to do in the gym. 4) Players don't think they need a fitness program because they believe golf is plenty of exercise already. And finally 5) The "no time" to train excuse.

 

Educate members to motivate them...

 

The challenge is persuading the member to get into the gym and start a regular fitness program that will be beneficial to their own personal well-being and at the same time may help improve their golf game. Or perhaps the approach should be to educate them on the benefits of a program that will improve their golf game, and as added benefit, improve their own personal well-being, as well. Maybe that's a better approach to get in the heads of golfers.

 

WE HAVE A SOLUTION!!

 

4 Exercises (in golf clothes) / 5 Minutes Total / No Sweat / 1 x Per Week

(Do I recommend a total fitness program for golfers? Absolutely and I'll touch on that at the close)

 

But for those who really don't want to spend any more than 5 minutes and yet want to increase their strength, welcome to..

 

 

 
 

 

Here's how it works.....

 

With conventional resistance training, a person picks up a weight, or moves a bar that's connected to a weight stack, and imposes load on the body. In the course of the range of motion there is a risk of injury. With biodenity stimulation however, the load used is created by the individual exerciser. This means that no matter how hard one exercises the load that is being dealt is never beyond what is safe.

 

4 Exercises in less than 5 minutes - In & Out in under 10 minutes with consultation

 

Chest Press - 5 second hold

 

Leg Press - 5 second hold

 

Pull down - 5 second hold

 

Deadlift - 5 second hold

 

Using Biodensity, 4 unique intense exercises are performed once per week, activating all major muscle groups. Each self-induced, maximum effort exercise lasts for only 5 seconds... "20 second advantage." The result is 100% stimulation of the entire muscle and creates a tremendous amount of bone loading. The action produces stronger bones, and dramatic increases in muscular strength.

 

Using Biodensity technology once a week safely and measurably reverses bone loss. At the same time, this revolutionary technology increases overall core strength, leading to increased independence and improved quality of life.

 

Results printed right after the workout for the member. Info can be emailed, as well. 

 

And, yes you can charge for the service and receive some additional income for the club. Biodensity can be a profit center within your club. Biodensity could also be a non-member source of revenue for the club, as well. Consider this department as a business.

 

Earlier I spoke of golf related injuries that can put a player out of action for long periods of time. Here's yet another benefit of having bioDensity at the gym. Here's why.

 

 

bioDensity - Advance Your Success with bioDensity Neuro-Musculoskeletal Stimulation and Measurement Technology. A scientific breakthrough with long established research from cellular biology, anti-aging, and bone structure enhancement. We know that building stronger bodies translates to building a healthier body. Regardless of a person's current fitness level, the bioDensity system makes the benefits of strength easy and attainable for most, from kids to seniors.

 

(Biodensity Technology! Business Investment Opportunity - please contact me for additional information)

 

In addition, let me share with you three more pieces of equipment (there are many others, as well) to consider for your gym. More details about the equipment to follow in a future blog.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MU-JO - improving the golf swing, preventing injuries and rehab...

 

 

Improve flexibility and improve your distance off the Tee in 6 weeks

 

Increase in flexibilty adds 10-20 yards off the tee.... What golfer doesn't want that?

 

 

Club Performance Systems offers many different types of equipment packages for a golf program depending on age group of members, size of gym and budget. A complete gym package offers equipment for juniors to senior golfers including our Zone Training concept, that allows a member to progress from a beginners training program to advanced. If you would like more information about our equipment and programs please contact me.

 

EXTRAORDINARY offer in Asia for Biodensity until January 31, 2013, if you would like to have Biodensity in your club's gym, fitness center, rehab clinic, sports performance center, hospital, chiropractic clinic, corporate office or residence, please contact me. I have lots of research data and information available about Biodensity, which I believe will help persuade you to purchase Biodensity for your facility. A great investment for your facility in 2013 and your members / clients will love you for it! Because prices differ from country to country due to shipping and customs duties, please contact me for the EXTRAORDINARY offer in your country.

 

January 31, 2013 is only 67 days from now... So don't delay!

 

I'll close by saying that while bioDensity is a great product to have in your gym, it is not by any means a total fitness program for golfers or any sport, but certainly a great adjunct to a program. Top athletes around the world incorporate bioDensity into their program. Biodensity is also a great way to begin a member on a fitness program, while encouraging them to do a more complete program as they start to enjoy the benefits of getting stronger.

 

Ok, I can't close without a golf joke...

 

It was a sunny Saturday morning, and Joe was beginning his pre-shot routine, visualizing his upcoming shot when a voice came over the clubhouse loudspeaker - "Would the gentleman on the ladies tee please back up to the men's tee, please!"

 

Joe was still deep in his routine, attempting to ignore the announcer. Again the announcement - "Would the man on the women's tee kindly back up to the men's tee.

 

Joe had had enough. He shouted, "Would the announcer in the clubhouse kindly shut up and let me play my second shot!"

 

(I know golfers will understand this joke) :)

 

Thank you.

 

"Play Strong - Play Long"

 

If you have any questions about bioDensity, our company, products or services please contact me.

 

Thank you

Solutions to Osteoporosis & World Osteoporosis Day October 20th

 

In recognition of World Osteoporosis Day October 20, 2012, our companies in Asia Club Solutions Asia, Club Performance Systems (Malaysia/Philippines) and Health-One Thailand would like to share with the international community some of the latest research and data that is helping fight this growing epidemic dis-ease among the young and elderly. In addition, we call on our fellow fitness and health professionals and encourage them to join us in tackling this severe epidemic problem.

 

World Osteoporosis Day is the creation of the International Foundation Osteoporosis and this year the theme is

 

 

World Osteoporosis Day is observed annually on 20 October, and launches a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. Organised by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) every year, World Osteoporosis Day involves campaigns by national osteoporosis patient societies from around the world with activities in over 90 countries. For further info regarding IFO

The following are some statistics from the International Osteoporosis Foundation

 

Incidence and prevalence of osteoporosis 
 
1 in 3 women over 50 will suffer a fracture due to osteoporosis; this increases to 1 in 2 over 60.
  
1 in 5 men over 50 will suffer a fracture due to osteoporosis; this increases to 1 in 3 over 60.
 
ƒApproximately 1.6 million hip fractures occur each year worldwide, the incidence is set to increase to 6.3 
million by 2050.
 
The highest risk of hip fractures are seen in Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Denmark and the USA.
 
Currently, there is an increasing incidence of hip fractures in the developed cities in Asia. 1 out of 4 hip 
fractures occur in Asia and Latin America. This number of hip fractures will increase to 1 in 2 by 2050.
 
ƒIn the Middle East, the burden of osteoporosis in the general population is expected to increase and is 
becoming a heavy financial burden.
 
ƒThe annual incidence rate of osteoporotic fractures in women is greater than the combined incidence rates of 
heart attack, stroke and breast cancer

What Is Osteoporosis?

The bones of people with osteoporosis become thin and weak. The word "osteo" comes from the Greek osteon meaning "bone", while "porosis" comes from the Greek poros meaning "hole, passage". According to Medilexicon's medical dictionary, osteoporosis is a "reduction in the quantity of bone or atrophy of skeletal tissue; an age-related disorder characterized by decreased bone mass and loss of normal skeletal microarchitecture, leading to increased susceptibility to fractures."

About 3 million people have osteoporosis in the UK, causing approximately 230,000fractures each year, according to the National Health Service (NHS). Osteoporosis is a public health threat for an estimated 44 million people in the USA, 55% of people aged 50 or over, says the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF). The NOF says that 10 million people currently have osteoporosis, while 34 million are thought to have low bone mass; which places them at significantly increased risk for the condition. 

 

Osteoporosis can occur due to low blood calcium or due to increased breakdown of bone. Diseases that lead to osteoporosis prevent the use of calcium in maintaining bone. Its not just important to maintain adequate intake of calcium but also the intake of vitamin D, since it's needed for calcium absorption.

 

Yes - sunlight helps prevent osteoporosis.

What are the symptoms of osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis develops very slowly over a period of many years. The condition may creep up on the patient without any obvious symptoms initially - it can take several months, and even several years to become noticeable.

 

Early signs of osteoporosis may include:

·         Joint pains

·         Difficulty standing

·         Difficulty sitting up straight. The stooping position often seen among elderly people is a visible sign of possible osteoporosis.

 

As the person's bone density or bone mass continues to go down fractures of the hip, wrist or bones in the spine become more common. Even a cough or a sneeze may fracture a rib or cause partial collapse of one of the spinal bones. 

 

Three Steps to Unbreakable Bones - informative vdo from IOF campaign message 2011

SNF Professoir Heike Bischoff-Ferran, director Centre on Aging and Mobility at the University of Zunich and City Hospital Ward, talks about the IOF report 'Three Steps of Unbreakable Bones for World Osteoporosis Day

 

 

 

Magnesium may reverse osteoporosis

Multiple research studies conducted have suggested that calcium supplemented with magnesium improves bone mineral density. Magnesium deficiency alters calcium metabolism and the hormones that regulate calcium, resulting in osteoporosis. Intake of recommended levels of magnesium is important because it averts osteoporosis.

 

 

 

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, a diet rich in animal proteins can cause an increase in body acidity which upsets the natural pH. In order to buffer against the increase in acidity in the bloodstream, the body will borrow calcium from the bones. The USDA states that loss of calcium from the bones due to diet is a cause of osteoporosis. An alkaline diet based on plant proteins such as fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes can prevent calcium loss due to body acidity.

BioDensity and Athletic Performance

 

 

 

 

 

A Non-Pharmaceutical Option for Bone Health & Muscle Mass

bioDensity™ technology makes it easy for anyone to experience a natural stimulus that will increase bone density and muscle mass. By placing the body in an optimum position for maximum load bearing, this machine allows the user to exert pressure on their bones and muscles that is otherwise impossible. That pressure causes the brain to send signals to that part of the body, telling it to add cells and increase bone density and muscle mass. From high-performance athletes to compromised, elderly individuals, all can greatly benefit from stronger bone tissue and increased muscular strength.

 

Blasting the Myths...

Osteoporosis Myth #1:

 

 

"Osteoporosis is just a natural part of aging."

Osteoporosis and aging have a correlation relationship, not a causation relationship. Lifestyle changes, caused by decreasing mechanical loading on the body, force prevalence of this disease in the aging populations, but the disease in not caused by aging in itself. This is one of the most common misconceptions about osteoporosis: That we are all doomed to futures of being hunched over or suffering from broken hips. Osteoporosis is a degradation in bone density, and it can be significantly affected by high-impact levels of axial mechanical loading.

 

Osteoporosis Myth #2:

 

 

"I take calcium so I don't have to worry about osteoporosis."


There are actually 17 nutrients that are critical for bone health, and calcium is just one of them. However, the misconception of calcium being the answer to the osteoporosis problem has led many to take calcium dietary supplements in excess, which not only does not solve the bone health problem but creates other adverse health conditions such as increased risk of kidney stones. Even when the body is given all of the proper nutrients for bone health, these are just BUILDING BLOCKS. The function of bone tissue increasing in mass or gaining in density is using these building blocks only as an adaptive response to a stimulus. So without the stimulus for the adaptive response, the body cannot use these building blocks. The function of bone mass density generation involves axial bone loading. Once intense loading happens, the bone mass genesis (osteoblast) begin to retain minerals, and the bone mass becomes more dense.

 

Osteoporosis Myth #3: 

"In order to prevent Osteoporosis, I should engage in low-impact/non-weight bearing exercise."

A 2008 study of bone health compared 2 groups of adult male athletes, aged 20-59. The first group consisted of cyclists (non-weight bearing exercisers), while the second group was made up of runners (weight-bearing exercisers). Determined by DXA scans, of the cyclists 63% had osteopenia of the spine or hip, compared to only 19% of the running group. Conclusion? Bone loading activity is a vital factor in maintaining bone mass, and should be sustained throughout adulthood.

 

 

Myth #4: 

 

 

 

"I am male, and Osteoporosis is a disease that affects females, so I have nothing to worry about." Although women comprise about 80% of osteoporosis cases in the US, men are certainly at risk as well. The International Osteoporosis Foundation estimates that, in the US, almost two million men have osteoporosis and another three million are at risk. PREVENTION is the key, and maintaining strong bones is considered an important anti-aging intervention

Pinterest 4 Your Gym/Sports Club/Golf Club

Would you like a Badass way to communicate with your members?

Get new members?

Retain Members?

 

 

 

 

 

I believe Pinterest can be an "AWESOME" marketing tool to promote your club internally and externally. And here's why and how.

 

What is Pinterest? (from pinterest.com)

Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse boards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. People use boards to plan weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes.

 

Why Pinterest?

Pinterest has set record-shattering growth in the past one year that has left marketers scrambling to get on board. Impressive +4,3777% growth compared to Twitter's 58% and Facebook's 4%. And experts only believe that growth is going to continue to go UPWARDS.

 

How to get your Members to join you on Pinterest.

 

To get started you need to set up an account on Pinterest and my suggest is to do this as a separate account for business only using your club's email account, not your own private account. It will be much easier to manage and it will be strictly business that way.

 

Boards and Pinning (from pinterest.com)

 

Pinterest lets you set up "Boards" - A board is a set of pins. A board can be created on any topic, such as Cool Posters, Recipes For Dinner, or Wishlist. You can add as many pins to a board as you want.

 

Ok but what is Pinning? (from pinterest.com)

 

A pin is an image added to Pinterest. A pin can be added from a website using the Pin It button, or you can upload images from your computer. Each pin added using the Pin It button links back to the site if came from.

 

So how does that work for your gym, sports club or golf club?

 

Simple! Create "boards" such as: Club Facility, Programs (you could open numerous different boards for each type of program/class offered such as: Zumba, Personal Training, Martial Arts, Members, Training, Blogs. Basically it's unlimited to the number of boards you may want to create. Fitness & Health Tips, Recipes, Nutrition, etc). Hopefully you're starting to get the idea of the benefits of promoting your club on Pinterest.

 

How to get Members to join you on Pinterest or any other social media programs.

 

Make a  contest just like you would with any other a program within your club. If members sign up for Pinterest and follow your boards, they get a chance to win prizes. Not difficult at all.

 

How to market the idea externally.

Create an entire marketing campaign around "Join Us on Social Media".

 

By the way, I'm assuming that your club is already setup with other social media programs such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+. If not, you need to get with the program and launch these as soon as possible. They all tie in nicely at the end of the day. If your club is not social media-ing you are seriously missing out on tremendous opportunities to brand, market, promote and sell your club to your target market.

 

Social Media programs are for the most part all FREE. Yep FREE and it's becoming far more popular for marketing than newspaper, magazine and TV advertising, which in the club business we can hardly afford in the first place.

 

 

 

 

 

Good luck and my suggestion is don't delay get started today!

 

If you're a club in Asia and would like us to help you create your social media marketing program, please contact us. It's what we do!

 

Welcome to join me on Pinterest

Pinterest is extremely easy to learn and use and FUN! It's one of those programs that if I can do it, so can you.

The Key Connection Point

 

 

The â€œKey Connection Point” that will differentiate 

(your fitness club)

from the competition will be the ability to satisfy, motivate 

and meet members needs and goals.

 

And most importantly:

 

 

 

READY?

 

Here it comes....

 

Get Members/Clients

A simple yet time proven solution to "Retaining Members"

and getting "New Members".. (coz that happy member who got RESULTS tells their friends, who joins the club coz they want that same thing.... RESULTS (ssssh, it's a secret solution to getting new members and keeping them)... 

 

Why are RESULTS important? 

 

Here are

 

Three Staggering Numbers to Consider:

  • 42% of new members walk away during the 1st 30 Days
  • Members who don't work out at least 8 times per month will be "gone" in 90 days  
  • The average club loses over 60% of its members annually

 

Based on those stats club owners and managers should pay particular attention to getting their members and clients the results that they wanted when they joined your club, or otherwise you may well have the same startling staggering numbers to deal with and a financial bottom line that will be in need of a defibrillator to survive.

 

Here is another really good reason to pay attention to getting members/clients results.

 

If members just stayed a few months longer your club could potentially double its profits.

Take your member retention as serious as you take sales and you will benefit.

 

Membership Retention is unquestionably the NO#1 key 

to the long-term financial success of  Your Club

 

Getting members/clients results will certainly differentiate you from the competition.

 

Differentiating your club is a challenge but it will certainly separate you from the rest. Here are a few tips that might just do that for you, whether you planning to open a new gym or make some significant changes within your present gym.

 

Whatever you do don't be a"cookie-cutter-look-alike-gym" the same as your competition down the street

                                                                                   and 

 

 

                                                                                Do you

 

 

                                                                               are you

  

 

of your competition

 

if your competition is vanilla, will you be chocolate?

 

 

 

are you?

 

 

 

 

Do you believe in

 

 

 

                                                                                                      and 

 

 

 

 

                                                                              need some help

 

 

 

 

It's what we do. 

 

Helping fitness clubs differentiate themselves from the competition" 

 

It's our passion one club @ a time.. 

 

We are solutions for your club...

Need Some New Mojo In Your Gym? Here's MUJO!

Exercise has evolved. Why work against nature...

 

 

Technology

MuJo (Multiple Joint) equipment uses moving axis cam technology to independently load multiple joints in a single exercise, replicating the body's own movements, for the ultimate in functional training.

 

This patent-pending technology means users can train multi-articular muscles or multi-axial joints in a single exercise, on just one machine. These exercises are designed to mimic everyday movements such as running, kicking and throwing.

 

The Best of Both Worlds

Mechanical engineer Douglas Higgins invented the moving axis cam at the heart of MuJo technology, after realizing there was a better way to exercise muscles over their full range of motion. MuJO equipment builds upon the foundations of both free weights and fixed weight machines, combining the benefits of both.

 

Free weight and cable systems train multiple joints, but are restricted to loading in a single direction without adjusting, due to the direction of gravity or tension in the cable. They also don't necessarily offer sufficient guidance to ensure correct posture and form, and can require intensive supervision from a trained professional.

 

Selectorised machines offer more control, helping ensure that the user exercises with correct form; by evening out the loading over the exercise range of motion through the use of a cam. However, existing cams are fixed to a permanent axis of rotation, which restricts the range of movement to a single joint, in just one direction.

One Machine, Multiple Exercises

 

The arrival of MuJo equipment means users no longer have to move from machine to machine to exercise across the full range of movement the human body is capable of achieving.

 

Featuring a patent-pending moving axis cam, MuJo equipment combines the unconstrained nature of free weights with the control of selectorised machines to deliver independent loading in multiple movements.

 

MuJo is the first equipment in the world to correctly load multi-articular muscles and multi-axial joints throughout their entire range of movement.

 

Finally, here is a range of exercise machines that match every day movements; from running to throwing, kicking to jumping.

 

MU-JO introduces their 1st series of 6 exercise machines..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Michael Gundell author of a best selling book on weight training, in a video blog, where he describes the equipment as 'exceptional' and "the best of the best!"

 

In addition, please find below the YouTube presentation of MUJO - it's in French but I believe that you will get the message. The English version will be released soon.
