Should I Allow Non-IHRSA Members to Buy Access to My Club?
When enrolling your club in the new IHRSA Passport Program, powered by TrainAway you are given the option of only selling passes to IHRSA Passport users at a discounted rate, or allowing all users of the TrainAway platform to buy day pass access to your club. You can do this by checking the box, or leaving it blank.
Option 1: Allow all TrainAway users to buy day pass access
If you make your club available to all users of the TrainAway platform, everyone who has a TrainAway account will be able to buy day pass access to your club. This includes members of other clubs enrolled in the IHRSA Passport Program, who will receive a 25% discount. Normal TrainAway users will not receive a discount and will pay the full price set by you. At the end of each month you will receive the revenue from this in two separate statements, minus the TrainAway service fee. To choose this option do not check the box, leaving it blank.
This means that at the same time as inviting IHRSA members to pay for access to your gym, you also allow other TrainAway users to do so. This requires no additional work from you, as the process is identical from the point of view of your staff. At the same time, it provides a noticeable boost to club revenue.
Option 2: Only allow Passport Users to buy access to your club
You can choose to only allow day pass access to members of other clubs enrolled in the IHRSA Passport Program. This means that the only TrainAway users who can buy day passes to your gym are other IHRSA members. They will do so at a discounted rate, the revenue from which you will receive at the end of each month, minus the TrainAway service fee. To choose this option you need to check the box.
Choosing this option restricts access to a smaller proportion of the TrainAway user base. Your club will not be shown to users who are not part of the IHRSA Passport Program. It does not affect the experience of IHRSA Passport users accessing your club.
