Social media for gyms and health clubs

Gyms and fitness centres of all shapes and sizes have much to gain over social media. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are the perfect places to showcase facilities as well as find and engage with potential members. Here are two of the clients we have worked with in the fitness industry to date.
