USING QUOOX TO OPERATE YOUR BUSINESS DURING COVID-19

Quoox Phase 2

Phase 2 – Smarter Controls

Phase-2 sees a slight relaxation of the absolute lockdown from phase-1. Individuals are permitted to undertake a greater amount of exercise but, during this phase, gyms (including outdoor gyms) must remain closed; and individuals may only train with one other person (outside those they live with). These are restricted outdoor 1-to-1 sessions.

For England, each Phase will be governed by steps, designed to make the process fluid, meaning permissions as to how we can operate will change periodically. It will very probably be a similar process for everyone, with strict guidelines issued for each step.

One-on-One sessions

One-to-one sessions work differently for each sector of the industry. For now  you cannot provide equipment for your clients, so they will have to bring their own or you will need to run body weight based sessions. For yoga, pilates and martial arts sessions, where less equipment is typically needed, this is less of an issue.

For some exercise clients, high impact body weight exercises – burpees, plyometrics, running, etc are just not an option. You will have to get creative in your programming, and not just based on ability and injury, but also for variety – make a push-up not look like a push up!

See the Covid-19 Safety Section included in your software for your in-person sessions.

Don’t forget, those who do not offer one on one training, or who offer a combination of both one-on-one and group, you can keep on providing live virtual sessions and on-demand training, as with XRcize.

 

Multi Price Point Offerings

A vital thing to remember is if you are not offering services your customers want, they will pay someone else for them.

We must also consider those who cannot afford one-on-one training, and let’s be honest this is most people. Your virtual and on-demand sessions are their lifeline. Also, you must include those who may decide to have, for example, one session with you per week; these customers need to doing more than that, and you need to encourage them to do so.

Let’s not forget nutritional guidance.  Even just providing your customers with regular healthy recipes, such as those included in your Quoox subscription will help them, and improve your offering.

How can you address these issues? How can you serve more people, at multiple price points, at the same time, without overwhelming yourself or breaking the guidelines and putting anyone (including yourself and your family) in danger?

We have a 3-step phase-2 plan for your business.

STEP 1

Offer Online On-demand Training

On-demand training is great business, as it means that once created the sessions are available forever, whenever. Within Quoox is on-demand training at no extra cost, we call it XRcize.

This enables you to build your own library, or upload your existing library form YouTube or Vimeo, create sessions and programs and sell them to customers. You are not involved in the delivery-to-client process, so once created you are free to offer one-on-one training whist your on-demand program is training others – it’s a free trainer working 24/7  just for you!

You can even create some stability in your income by charging a monthly subscription to your on-demand training. And, Quoox‘s software will run this whole section of your business for you, it is fully automated.

  • Advertise your online training through Campaigns
  • Sell to interested clients through automated messages
  • Handle the online sign up and take payment
  • Deliver the program
  • Carry on talking to your new client through automated message reachouts

A great XRcize difference is that you can create up to five-levels of the same workout; from beginner to super hard, in just a few minutes. Your clients will never get bored as they can select which level of workout they want to do in their app, and with a few simple changes one workout becomes five.

For example, for a fitness session a timed interval workout could be delivered as a 50:10, 40:20, 30:30, 20:40, 10:50 program. Your client can select which they want to do, and the in-app timer will change depending on the workout.

Or you can change the exercises themselves: if the first exercise is a Push Up, for each level of the workout you can progress or regress the exercise:

Level 1 – Elevated Push Up
Level 2 – Knee Push Up
Level 3 – Push Up
Level 4 – Spiderman Push Up
Level 5 – Clapping push Up

Your client can pick what level of session they want to do, or can stick with the level you selected for them.

XRcize works as either a stand alone product, or as part of the complete Quoox system, working alongside your Zoom sessions, in person one-on-one sessions, and the diet plans and recipes included in Quoox.

STEP 2

Offer Virtual Sessions – many have moved across to streaming sessions, with Zoom being the most popular choice. Whilst these sessions obviously require you to be present, virtual sessions allow you to train multiple clients at the same time, and are super convenient. Whether you charge for these as a monthly subscription or pay as you go option, the more simple you can make the process – for both your members and yourself – the better for everyone.

We can help you with this process.

  • You create a session in your schedule and Quoox will automatically create a meeting room in Zoom for you, saving you the time and hassle of double creating your timetable.
  • When a member books their session in your app, they are auto sent a link to the session. No more copying, pasting and emailing the link for each session!
  • Your member can either join the session through the email, or even better, open their app, see the session they have booked and tap Join Session button. Pretty cool! No more searching their inbox for your email.
  • Quoox will handle your members attendance for you; updating their records, perfect for if they are on a limited session membership or have bought a block of sessions, and updating their reliability score (one of our retention tools). It is all about doing your admin for you.

Quoox integrates with Zoom, and other meeting rooms such as WebEx, YouTube Live, etc.

STEP 3

One-On-One Training – now you can get back to serving your clients in person. They have missed you, and you have missed them.Quoox has everything you need to run this element of your business, and it will work anywhere you have internet connection (including down the park!). The more tasks you can automate the more time you can save, time you can make available for more one to one sessions.

  • Clients book in your app, it is a live feed so as they change their session times it auto updates their calendar and your schedule, no need to text.
  • Use Roll Call Covid-19 Section to fill in each person’s temperature, log any symptoms, and see all records about each client at the start of their session – injuries, preferences, dislikes, goals, payment issues, a complete overview.
  • Client records are automatically updated including sessions remaining and reliability.
  • Book client’s next session, or let them book themselves in your app.
  • Update any records including session details, injuries, plans for next session.
  • Book keeping tasks are handled through integration with Xero, saving you time  (for more one to one sessions!) and accountancy fees.

For those who cannot afford multiple one on one sessions, you can provide On-demand and/or Virtual sessions to “top up” their training regime.

ADDED VALUE

  • Offer dietary support with the included diet plans, cook book and recipes, all of which are branded as your own and delivered to your clients in your app.
  • Stay in touch through the included message centre and auto reachouts functions.
  • Have members upload pictures of their meals or home workouts through the app, for you to comment on through message centre.
  • Through with Quoox‘s integration with Fitbit® and Myzone®  comment, through message centre, on activities done when not with you, such as steps per day, sleeping habits, distanced walked and their jogging sessions .

To Wellness And Beyond…

Your business has always been about more than a single session, and this is apparent now more than ever before, as the industry moves towards a wellness centric offering.

Your sessions need to be great, and so does your support and communications. Your clients are dependent on you to get them through this and out the other side, fit well and vital. You can depend on us.
