It’s a sight you may have seen before: it’s January, we’re fresh off of the holidays, and New Years Resolutioners near and far begin piling into the gyms to start the year off right. What you may not have seen before, however, is a gym that focuses not only on providing a space for members new and old to be their very best, but a place that feels like a true home away from home.
These aren’t our words; don’t just take it from us! We asked our members to describe Chuze in one word and repeatedly, overwhelmingly, they – you! – said: home.
January was a month spent celebrating this cultivation of inclusivity and ease in an environment that we know can be intimidating and overwhelming.
We welcomed brand new members across our 30 clubs with big smiles, high fives and loads of encouragement. This, however, is to be expected. We wanted to think big and create experiences that were truly memorable.
With this in mind, we put our best thinking caps on and were able to make some serious magic happen.
In Denver, Colorado, we hosted a family dinner for nearly 100 members. Set to the ambiance of a live musician, guests enjoyed Italian cuisine brought in from a local favorite and got to spend time breaking bread with one another.
We broke a sweat to a Group Exercise class in a community member’s backyard. That’s right – we brought a Chuze-quality class into the community to show that we are all about dissolving barriers and making fitness accessible to as many people as possible. They had a blast!
We heard from more than 850 members about why Chuze feels like home to them, and some were even featured in this video!
We hosted a Workout and Movie Night with Kids Club at several Chuze Fitness locations. This gave parents a chance to watch a movie in the Chuze Cinema and get their work out in (or not), while the little ones enjoyed a movie of their own in the Kids Cinema. This was a huge hit!
For all that you have done to help create community: we say thank you. We couldn’t be your home away from home without you.
