Social media has become an integral part of our daily lives. It seems that almost everyone we know, from our closest friends to our beloved grandparents, is now active on social media platforms. Statistical evidence also confirms this observation, with reports suggesting that 90% of individuals with internet access utilize social media.
The rise of social media has had a profound impact on how brands approach marketing their products and services. In fact, many companies have established specialized teams solely dedicated to social media marketing. This trend has been especially advantageous for fitness franchises, as the visual nature of social media allows them to present the benefits of their brands. At Blitz45 Fitness, we have leveraged this platform to showcase our state-of-the-art group training system, outstanding fitness outcomes, and highly skilled coaches, thereby providing potential members with a glimpse of our brand.
Discover the impact of social media marketing on our success in transforming Blitz45 Fitness into an online phenomenon, and explore how this can benefit your fitness franchise.

Our brand’s features were widely shared on social media, as people shared, created stories and mentioned us on social media, our brand recognition expanded nationally.
The Power of User-Generated Content in the Digital Age
User-generated content (UGC) refers to organic content such as images and videos that are created by online users. Unlike paid or sponsored content, UGC is not created or commissioned by brands, but they may choose to share it on their business profiles.
At Blitz 45 Fitness, our members are enthusiastic about sharing their experiences with others online. They create various types of UGC, such as progress photos and testimonials, which helps to expand our social media presence and enhance our brand’s visibility.
Apart from our main corporate Instagram account, every Blitz 45 Fitness studio has its own profile where they can share localized content. This allows members to interact with each other, tag the location, and even see themselves in reposted content, creating a stronger connection to the studio.
Understanding Facebook Groups: Building Communities and Connections
Blitz45 Fitness creates a Facebook group for each studio that serves as a community hub for our members. It provides a platform where members can connect, seek advice, share accomplishments, and support each other. This group creates a positive online environment where members can find motivation and encouragement. It serves as a platform for accountability partners across the country, and also enables studio-goers to find workout buddies in their local area. By fostering this sense of community, we keep both our digital and in-person members engaged, ultimately leading to increased customer loyalty. When members feel connected to our brand and other members, they are more likely to stay with us long-term.
Our Facebook group also serves as a platform to update our community about the latest happenings at Blitz45 Fitness, such as new studio openings. By keeping our digital members informed about upcoming openings, they may become our first members when a new studio opens in their city.
