Community Fitness Network has announced a partnership with fibodo, the award-winning booking management platform, to develop a smooth booking process that helps people who want to take part in community fitness activities connect with fitness instructors in their local area.
Community Fitness Week, which is run by the Community Fitness Network, will run from 4th-10th November. It is a new initiative, launching this year, to raise awareness of community fitness and the instructors delivering sessions around the UK.
The Community Fitness Week initiative is more than getting fit, it’s an opportunity for participants and instructors to build a healthier, happier and more connected community and make new friends – all whilst improving mental wellbeing and helping overcome loneliness – which according to Age UK can be as harmful for our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
The platform has been designed to deliver a smooth bookings solution for individuals who want to get active during Community Fitness Week. The booking platform allows participants to easily find activities in their local area, book and pay for their space in a preferred class – whether it’s group exercise, dance fitness, wellness or community activities.
As part of the platform, fibodo will also create the Community Fitness Week booking app so participants have a convenient and secure way to book and pay for classes. It also gives instructors another platform to advertise their activities in a quick and simple way.
fibodo supports sports and activity professionals, providing an award-winning booking solution, which helps them to save time and hassle. Its innovative technology allows businesses to accept bookings and payments 24/7, whilst also advertising availability in real time.
Claire Goodliff, co-founder and MD at Community Fitness Week, commented:
“This year marks the first of many Community Fitness Weeks, an annual, nationwide, week-long event, to boost the number of instructors offering their services and help more members of the community to get active. Helping the community is at the heart of what we do and working with fibodo has enabled us to reach that ambition. The new booking management platform has allowed us to provide a simple, easy-to-use tool for all participants in Community Fitness Week.”
Anthony Franklin, CEO and founder of fibodo, commented:
“We’re excited to partner with Community Fitness Network and have the opportunity to help the Network promote healthy living, throughout local communities and nationwide. We’re passionate about empowering sports and activity professionals at grassroots level, so it was a no-brainer supporting an initiative which not only offers fitness benefits, but also builds social circles and removes communal barriers. fibodo will provide participants and instructors with a simple, easy to use booking platform throughout Community Fitness Week.”
