The gym that thrived COVID-19
EL T3MPLO wanted a custom platform where their members can sign up, choose a package, and easily pay each month.
EL T3MPLO is a gym established in several cities in Mexico and is lead by two motivational individuals @carlottachacon and @rojodelavega, who are true advocates of being healthy for living a more fulfilling life.
More than looking good, it´s about enabling your body for tougher activities. Making people stronger mentally and physically.
Some population is under the impression that some youtube videos can give them what they need to achieve these goals, and they´re misguided.
Ask yourself, how many times have I pushed myself into exercising the full amount of time and at the optimal effort and speed?
Being alone exercising is uninspired, not only because you're not being spotted, but because you have to keep thinking about how to do certain exercises, and looking at the tutorial time and time again to see if you´re doing them correctly. Sometimes you´re going through the motions without feeling the burn, which is just a waste of time and effort.
I mean, who gets inspired to get fit and strong with a depressing dynamic, like that?
So... The treatment to the insecurities of exercising by yourself and the energizing motivation comes from coaches, showing how to do it. Another important side is correcting your technique. The feeling of someone taking you through each motion, forcing the effectiveness of an exercise is the sole reason why anyone signs up for a gym.
Not to mention that many of us know, but a few exercises we can do at home, by ourselves, without equipment.
To break our limits, expand our movements, and becoming part of a group of people who make you feel productive, is why EL T3MPLO exists, and has exceeded 1,000 members in the last year.
How was this level of communication achieved?
In Xipe Technology, we have a membership management platform called Clubman. It’s a platform of many microservices anyone can choose and acquire. EL T3MPLO wanted a custom platform where their members can sign up, choose a package, and easily pay each month.
Business first, right?
Having the services, guarantees, and money set up in everyone's respective account, landed a feeling of security. Now all members go on to a Zoom platform, which is developed, to show members the training schedule, where they sign up and log in to the stream.
Once inside, they begin their training with a coach leading the training session and another one checking on their execution, through the same platform.
People are not physically in front of El T3MPLO´s coaches. And still are enjoying the rewarding results.
Successful communication means there is engagement through a screen and no distractions from the coaching quality, they are being delivered.
The COVID-19 pandemic made everyone, stay at home, close the gyms, and start taking care of things digitally. It was already happening gradually until this pandemic forced all of us to go digital, all the way.
Maintaining a way of life, believing what is good for you, and adapting to reality can only send you in a winning direction.
