Are Gym Membership Contracts a Good or Bad Idea?

Business, Coaching

From a business owner’s perspective, a willingness to enter into a contract or guarantee is an essential first step in gauging a client’s commitment to his or her goal. Goals in any shape or form require a commitment to see it through and grind out the rough patches. If we take a common example of someone joining a semi-private training facility, the person’s goals might include:


  • Losing fat
  • Toning up
  • Feeling fitter
  • Having more energy on a daily basis


To achieve this goal and make a considerable change some basic things are needed first and foremost: good coaching, nutritional education, support structures, and patience from both parties. Success for the client also requires a commitment to the process.
