FitRewards Loyalty and Reward Program Now Offered at Trivantage Fitness Loft

FitRewards Loyalty and Reward Program Now Offered at Trivantage Fitness Loft










Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 7, 2006

TriVantage Fitness Loft of Houston announced today that it has introduced the “FitRewards” loyalty and reward program to all members of the club. “We were searching for an innovative way to make our membership experience more valuable, and to thank our members for their loyalty,” stated Johnny Shelby, President. “We’re are very excited to be the only club in the area to currently offer the FitRewards program.”

FitRewards is a free member-appreciation program that rewards club members for their ongoing participation at the club. Each time a member completes a qualifying event, that member will earn points that they can accumulate and redeem for brand-name gifts and club services.

Members earn points, for example, by improving their training zones, purchases in the multi-sport pro shop, referring a friend to enroll or attending a sport-specific training seminar. Members accumulate points in their online account, accessed via the club’s website, and redeem them online at their discretion after attaining point levels that match the gifts they want.

The program was developed specifically for the fitness industry. Until now, there hasn’t been any loyalty programs for health clubs that resemble programs like airline frequent-flyer miles. FitRewards meets that need and gives health clubs a way to thank loyal members.

TriVantage Fitness Loft, a Peak Center for Human Performance, is dedicated to providing innovative fitness testing and training services. TriVantage is different from most health clubs and services offered by personal trainers. TriVantage’s philosophy and programs are based on a strong, scientific foundation and are built to provide optimal training programs to meet the member’s specific sport goals.

Trivantage has something for everyone, at every level…custom programs designed for experienced and beginner athletes, and those interested in general fitness. For details, please contact Johnny Shelby or 713.621.7336.
