Gym SMS FAQ

Have more questions about how to use text messaging to increase member retention or promote your gym? We've got the answers to some of the inquiries we hear most often.

Contact Us
What is fitness texting?

A fitness text is an SMS message containing information about your gym, such as new opening hours, class schedules or special promotions. Think of it as any type of message that encourages people to embrace exercise and improve their physical fitness. 

What are popular SMS topics gyms send to their members?

Gyms use SMS messages to communicate with current and past members. Examples of messages a gym may send to current members include class schedules, changes to opening hours or closures for holidays or weather, and billing or renewal reminders.

If a gym uses text messaging to reach out to expired members, it may send messages with special promotional codes, such as a returning member discount or a two-for-one offer. 

Gyms can also send messages to upsell their products or services. For example, a gym that also has massage chairs or an on-site spa may send a text encouraging current members to use the chairs or visit the spa. 

How can I integrate Red Oxygen with my gym CRM?

You don’t need to be a tech know-it-all to use Red Oxygen. We designed our API with CRM integration capabilities to make it easy to connect with your current system so you can keep all of your communications with clients and customers in one spot.

Why use SMS communication for my gym?

People often read text messages right when they receive them, making them a very effective form of communication. If you are looking to increase your gym’s retention rates, using SMS will simplify communication with members, making them feel in the loop and more likely to renew or continue their memberships.

Texting your members can also improve their relationship with your gym. The messages you send help them learn more about what your gym offers and how they can take advantage of their membership benefits. 

As long as they’ve opted-in to text messages from you, you can use SMS to reach out to expired members, too. You can ask them for their opinions or provide them with a special deal in an attempt to convince them to sign up again.
