When it comes to Virtual versus live classes, it pays to compare it to your favourite musician. Listening to an album is great, but going to a live concert is even better. The same applies to LES MILLS™ Virtual. It can attract new members and engage and retain current members, but it is not designed as a replacement for live classes. In fact, our research shows that Virtual can actually increase attendance.

HOW CAN VIRTUAL HELP YOUR BUSINESS?

FILL YOUR CLUB

  • Pre-pandemic, the average studio sat empty for 50-80% of the day. Running off-peak Virtual classes gives your members more option, while program variety can attract new members.
  • Running Virtual alongside live classes allows you to expand your timetable and optimise your studio space – this flexibility can be useful during the post-COVID-19 period.
  • Over 70% of Virtual users say they’re drawn by the flexibility to do a workout whenever it suits them. Again, this flexibility can be a solution to reducing downtime where studios are otherwise unused.
  • Running classes off-peak opens up group exercise to entirely new markets like shift-workers and parents. Post-COVID-19, Virtual can also give you a way to control your scheduling in terms of frequency and capacity, as well as being able to expand your program variety.

 

 

INCREASE ATTENDANCE

  • During isolation, many people engaged with online workouts and are now interested in continuing their participation in such programs. Many of those who have enjoyed Les Mills’ at-home workouts will be wanting to participate in a club, where they can socialise and experience their favourite programs in a fitness environment. Prior to the pandemic:
    • 75% of Virtual fitness users also attend live classes.
    • Live class attendance increases by 12% when clubs run Virtual and live together.
