Track fitness client membership, get ahead of renewals, and boost retention with this free download template.
When you run a fitness training business, getting clients is just half of the battle. You’re also constantly thinking about how to retain them. And if you don’t know exactly when their current membership is up for renewal, they can slip through the net.
Why should you track fitness client membership renewal dates?
You can’t rely on clients to keep renewing their membership without a bit of encouragement. Even the most enthusiastic, “I’d train every day if I could” people can cancel. It’s really important to have a system that tracks client membership renewal dates so you can stay one step ahead.
Tracking client membership renewals won’t prevent 100% of leavers, but it will increase your retention rate. Once you know exactly when each client is due to renew, you can arrange a chat or start sending emails to keep them engaged.
Do they feel they are making progress? Are they happy at your facility? Is money a concern? Are they getting what they want out of their membership?
This is good practice even for those who aren’t at risk of leaving – engaging with your members gives you the opportunity to improve your offer for everyone.

What’s the best way to track fitness client membership renewals?
Using a spreadsheet is better than not tracking membership renewals at all (we’ve even heard of one gym that still tracks renewals using a whiteboard and marker pen).
But there’s actually a better way.
Using a purpose-made software platform will not just help you track renewals, it will automate everything from payments to emails and messaging, as well as all client activity across PT, classes, and packages.
