Your Ultimate Guide to Running the Open: 2022 Edition


The 2022 Open is less than three weeks away!

Does that send shivers down your spine? Are you further behind in your event planning than you’d like to be?

Well, if that’s the case, we’ve got some good news for you. We’ve collabed with our sister solutions UpLaunch and Zen Planner to bring you a new-and-improved Ultimate Guide to Running the Open. It includes:

  • An explanation of why the Open matters to your gym
  • Tips for encouraging member registration
  • Ways to prepare your gym for the event
  • To-do lists to guide you through the event-planning process
  • Emails, text messages, and social media posts to promote the Open

How the Open Guide Will Improve Your Event

Why participate? The Open is a recovery tool

You may be new to the Open, or you may be a seasoned pro. But here’s one thing that stays the same about events regardless of your level of experience:

It’s better to go in with a plan.

As a busy gym owner, you know that weeks can go by in the blink of an eye. An Open guide will keep you on track with reminders for what to do and when to do it so you don’t forget anything important during event planning. (Like placing the pizza order for Friday Night Lights!)

Build your community. Catering to different groups.

We also have a few nuggets of wisdom in there that may be new to you. Everyone runs their Open a little bit differently, and we think sharing these ideas between owners can only benefit the functional fitness community as a whole.

So, how about it? Want to spend a few minutes learning about event planning in order to run a stronger event that’ll bring more members in the door?

… And did we mention there are 63 pages of great info? This guide is thorough!
