Holmes Place Jelmoli pay per use classes

I happen to know that Holmes Place Jelmoli will shortly be offering pay per use classes. This until now has been something that was only possible for the classes hosted by external providers (where they hire the studio and can then bring non members to their classes), but not the ones where Holmes Place pays the instructors to do the class (the case for the majority of classes).

If you like you can PM me and I can let you know as soon as the deal is finalised.

Please post more on this as you know more. I am a Holmes Place member now but there are times when friends (non HP members) want to join me for a class and cannot bc they are not members...it would be great if they could just pay for the class. Do you know if it's just Holmes Place in Jelmoli or also the one in Obberrieden -Seepark?

Well I persuaded the previous club manager at Holmes Place Jelmoli to start offering pay per use classes through my site. He liked the idea of offering pay per use classes as an additional means of increasing cash flow. He said that if the classes became full because of pay per use members doing classes, they could start new ones to satisfy demand. At the end of the day not everyone is going to become a member.

Anyhow, to cut a long story short that manager left, and I so far have not been able to get a reply from the new management about whether they would agree to such a deal. I have sent several mails but so far no reply. If you are a member perhaps you could mention it to them that this is something that can bring them more money at the end of the day.

The Swiss fitness market is worth over 1 billion CHF per year, so with that kind of money passing from us the consumer to the providers like Holmes Place, Migros Fitness etc, we should have more choice and flexibility if we band together as a group of empowered consumers. This is exactly what my site is attempting to do - giving consumers more choice and flexibility by connecting all of the smaller gyms which already offer schemes such as pay per use. If we as consumers can get what we want from a network of smaller gyms via a site like mine, the larger gym chains will be forced to rethink their members only approach in order to survive. The only reason they have a monopoly right now is because we keep handing over our money to them, even if they don't offer us the flexibility and value for money that we expect.

Well if you use my site then you can do classes as and when you want and just pay for what you use. No need for annual memberships.
