SocialBoat’s fitness challenges have been a huge success with teams and participants from all across the country. We have identified and highlighted the best engagement strategies that have worked for our most successful communities. Read on how you can keep your community motivated and engaged. An engaged community is the first step to earning as a fitness coach.
1. Ask questions.
The first, foremost and easiest thing you can do to participate in your community is ask them questions. These can be about anything from diet, to health, to exercise, to future programs, what they expect, etc. The goal here is to make them feel involved, and asking questions is an important way to do that.
2. Announce new rewards.
Rewards not only boost motivation, they also show your community members that their efforts are being valued, and are important to you.
Hence, announce new and additional rewards and keep that energy going.
3. Reply to every post by a member.
When your community members share their efforts as results, you, being the coach, should validate their efforts. Reply to every post, every question, and every comment to make your community members' efforts feel valued.
4. Share your workout videos.
Also, share workout videos so that your community members have something to look up to while they are burning their calories. From your expert workout sessions, they will look forward to learning the correct and incorrect ways of doing things.
5. Schedule live classes to motivate and encourage your audience.
Another trick that works wonders in sending across motivation to your community is organizing regular Live sessions. Here you can engage with the audience, answer their questions, address their doubts, give them something new to do, etc.
6. Share screenshots of your hall-of-fame on SocialMedia.
Show them what you have done so far! This will help them realize that they are being rewarded for all the hard work being put in. Sharing screenshots with data to solidify their rewards and yours too!
We hope these tips will help you in engaging with your community, and we wish you all the best for the challenge!
