  • 57. Think Differently
  • 58. What Do YOU Think Is The#1 Challenge For HealthClubs Today ? THE KPI
  • 59. THE KPI Attrition & Engagement •  Attrition: Nearly 10.5 million people joined a health club in the U.S. in 2009, while 10.7 million dropped their memberships, producing a  “churn” or attrition rate of 24%. •  Core members:  “Core” users remain members of their club for approximately 21.5 months longer than casual users. Assuming average monthly dues of $41.47, converting one member to a “core” user would therefore generate nearly $900 in extra revenues.59
  • 60. the Sell SELLSELL culture 60 THE KPI
  • 61. HOW MANY OF US THINK ABOUTATTRITION-RETENTION IS WRONG 1. The attrition percentage is heavily influenced by the number of membership sales. Between June and July the attrition % fell (from 5.0% to 4.9%), yet the number of cancellations increased (from 126 to 129)! It is clear in this example that the reduction in attrition was caused by a large amount of new joiners in June and not by any improvement in the retention of existing members. 2. The attrition percentage does not take into account HOW LONG A MEMBER HAS BEEN RETAINED. It is possible to see huge variances in the membership duration of each member that cancels. THE KPI 61
  • 62. HOW MOST OF US THINK ABOUTATTRITION-RETENTION IS WRONG In order to understand how to improve retention operators need to measure: 1. THE RETENTION RATE defined as: The proportion of members who stay for a predefined period of time e.g. 3, 6, 12 months etc. 2. LIFETIME VALUE defined as: The average length of time members stay and therefore how much they pay in membership fees. THE KPI 62
