Our Homestead presale BCM% was less than 30% WITHOUT the
HydroMassage Bed, and our Ives Dairy and Hialeah presales were at

Impact of HydroMassage
HydroMassage is the most used piece of equipment in the club.
- Chris Kouros, PF, Montgomery, IL

Just having it in our presale location helped us sell more Black Cards.
We opened at 63% Black Card, and HydroMassage is the single
most important thing to get us to that number. We have waiting lines
with 2 beds, so well go with 3 or 4 in future clubs.

Open vs. Closed Room?
A HydroMassage Zone is designed as a semi-private area, which
accomplishes two goals:

First, there is enough privacy and

separation from the gym floor to
make members completely
comfortable and relaxed during their

And second, there is also enough

visibility for other members walking
by the room on new club tours to
take notice and become curious
about upgrading their membership to
include HydroMassage.

Waiting chairs & table can be placed either

inside or outside of the room
Benefits of Waiting Area
Everything about the HydroMassage Zone is purposely done to help you sell
as many Black Card upgrades as possible.

A waiting line always creates


And when other members are willing

to sit and read a magazine or watch
TV before their HydroMassage,
people walking by the room
automatically take notice and
become curious, which helps sell
more Black Card memberships.
HydroMassage Touchscreen
Once activated by the front desk staff, the
HydroMassage Touchscreen allows members to
easily operate the bed without staff supervision.

Message windows pops-up on the Touchscreen

instructing members what to do before and after
their HydroMassage sessions.
