ABC Fitness Solutions, LLC (ABC), the leading provider of technology and related services for the fitness industry, today unveils ABC+, a member-centric mobile platform that allows club operators of all sizes to participate in the digitization of health and fitness in a way that is personal, flexible and inclusive of the in-club experience. ABC+ allows club operators to extend engagement, creatively curate personalized content and deepen their relationship with members as they continue their health and wellness journey how, where, and when they choose.
As consumers are presented with more and more options for health and fitness, club operators have had to evolve and invest heavily in creating their own content, or turn to multiple vendors to deliver online training, video-based classes, and live tutorials to compete with and complement the likes of emerging and competing in-home fitness offerings. With the evolving fitness model here to stay, ABC+ provides a seamless integrated solution to allow club operators the ability to deliver their own branded app that puts their members at the center of their personalized experience.
“Technology is an exciting disruption to the health and fitness industry that has the potential to fundamentally change the way clubs and members interact. The rapid adoption of digital classes and proliferation of wearables that can provide activity, behavioral and nutritional data enables club operators to deliver more personalized and intimate services than ever before,” said ABC CEO Bill Davis. “With ABC+, we are helping club operators embrace the paradigm shift with a streamlined, native mobile platform that allows them to deliver new, fully branded services to members while creating deeper relationships both in and outside of physical locations. It provides all the tools needed to create a Total Fitness Experience that adds value to members and additional revenue for club operators.”
In addition to curating content, club operators can create greater sense of community and encourage app usage through use of diverse tools including in-app messaging, 1-to-1 video calling with coaches, and staff, and social motivation via badges, groups and workout-of-the-day challenges. This presents significant opportunity for club operators to monetize both in-person and virtual channels to unlock new revenue streams and business models. ABC+ is native the ABC ecosystem with built-in reporting that allows operators to track member engagement, monitor team activities, and automate communications at scale to enhance business performance.
ABC+ is available today on Android and iOS with a dedicated Apple Watch app. The app is the first in a wave of next-generation club management solutions from ABC to bring a new level of connectivity to member’s fitness journey inside and outside the gym.
