fibodo takes Covid-19 fitness fight (fit4thefight) online
Government experts are advising people to avoid all public places, including gyms, for the foreseeable future. But fibodo is calling on the fitness industry to keep itself, and the nation moving. It has launched a new initiative, Fit4theFight.
Facing an unprecedented health crisis, it is crucial that major fitness operators, studios and personal trainers seize this opportunity to innovate and continue offering their services, which are needed by the general public now more than ever before.
With this in mind, fibodo is providing them with completely free access to the Fit4TheFight booking web pages and apps. This will enable them to immediately begin hosting online training sessions without incurring any additional overhead costs.
How does it work?
The platform can be used by trainers to advertise their availability to new and existing clients, take payments, and run the online sessions.
By working together, the fitness industry will have an unrivalled opportunity. A chance to highlight the importance of the initiative whilst capitalising on the significant media and political interest in maintaining the nation’s health.
Through Fit4TheFight, instructors will be able to offer 20-minute or 40-minute private online sessions for £10 and £20 respectively, along with 40-minute group classes for up to six people over 70, at a cost of £5 per person.
In addition to the online sessions, trainers will be also be able to offer one hour sessions for £50, in or near the homes of participants, with all necessary health and safety precautions taken to minimise the risk of transmission.
Trainers listed on the website and app can be searched for by consumers by name, location, time and activity type. They can also advertise their availability on social media directly from the platform, using the campaign’s hashtags for increased reach.
Donations to charity
fibodo’s usual £29.99 monthly subscription fee has been waived for all fitness providers until the end of June 2020. It will simply charge a 10% transaction fee on each session, with 50% of this donated to charities dedicated to helping those most affected by the pandemic.
fibodo founder and CEO, Anthony Franklin, commented:
“Social distancing and self isolation is very necessary. But these actions have the potential to cause serious physical and mental health problems, both now and in the long-term. It’s therefore essential that we encourage and enable people to keep fit. Even as this situation continues to unfold. However, the fitness industry must also do everything it can to support itself. With significant national media interest, now is the time to act. Many gyms and studios may be forced to temporarily close their doors. We are committed to helping them to find alternative ways to offer their services. By removing the barriers to setting up online and local fitness sessions, Fit4theFight will help ensure the health and happiness of our nation. It will also protect our vital fitness industry over the coming months.”
