Remember the important day with these fun gym anniversary ideas.

Here’s a question for you: how are you celebrating your gym’s anniversary this year? Wait, you haven’t planned anything yet but have a lot of ideas?  Maybe you are busy with running your business and don’t believe you have enough time to plan a memorable event? Take a look at these fun – and yes, easy – gym anniversary ideas.

Make it a multiple-day event
When celebrating the anniversary of your gym, it’s important to think of it as an event that spans an entire weekend or even an entire week and not just one day. Even your most loyal members have changes in their workout schedules from time-to-time.  By having your anniversary celebration span several days, people will be much more likely to join in and help your business to celebrate the occasion.

Have a cooking contest with healthy recipes
People love to eat –even if they are eating healthy. Advertise around the gym that your business is hosting a cooking contest with healthy recipes. You could make the recipes based on a maximum amount of calories per serving, carbs, sugar, or even percentage of fat per serving. Plus, people have to come into the gym if they want to sample the tasty entries! You can even offer all entries a free piece of gym branded materials like hats, towels, or t-shirts just for entering the contest. But then offer a grand prize like a $500 VISA gift card that will grab people’s attention.
