    Gym incentive ideas


    No idea where this post belongs.

    Any of you fellas got some cool gym ideas to get members fired up, or interest new ones?

    What I mean is ideas like
    -weight-loss challenges
    -refer a member
    -strongest lift of the month

    ya know, fun little competitions that can be aimed towards the general gym go-er.

    Thanks!

    I'm doing an essay on heathy eating vs. fad diets. I thought I would have tons of knowledge because of my experience but I have the biggest writer's block right now. I'll wait to see what people have to say on this thread.

    I used to do the monthly fitness challenges when I was fitness coordinator at the Y. I alternated "cardio" based and "strength" based challenges. I did fastest time to 100 push ups, fastest time to 1000 meters on Concept II, most reps on leg press with 1.5x body weight, stuff like that. I would alternate to get different people interested and had a lot of friendly competition rise among our members from it. Turned into a big success for us, especially after we added a suggestion sheet for new challenges on the results board where we kept track of the challenge, the rules, the participants and their results and rankings. I also ammended the board so that next months challenge was on there. We had people start training for next months challenge after that. Just some ideas for you.

    My gym is doing the Paleo Challenge with the crossfit portion of it. They've also done two push/pull competitions. Even the non-powerlifters had fun doing it. We'll also be doing a competition against another gym. Done prowler challenges in teams also.

    Edit: And Barbell for Boobs in November
