New Membership Formula with Incentives Based on Participation
Montreal, November 3, 2016 – Only two months after introducing the successful BOOMERANG membership for regular clients, Nautilus Plus is launching CORPORATE BOOMERANG PLAN. With this revolutionary membership, each employee of companies who opt in the CORPORATE BOOMERANG plan will earn a $1.20 credit for each training session completed in any of the 40 Nautilus Plus centres. Now, in addition to the distinctive professional guidance services provided by Nautilus Plus, companies committed to delivering concrete results through their investments in health promotion will have access to a significant financial incentive to support the long-term adoption of a healthy lifestyle by their employees.
With the ageing population and the rise in chronic diseases among employees, many companies are seeking ways to offset the considerable cost increases of their group insurance programs, particularly with regard to long-term care. A report from the Conference Board of Canada published in November 2014, Improving Lifestyle Habits: Substantial Benefits for Quebec’s Economy and the Health of Its Citizens, suggests that chronic diseases may be reduced by 75% through the adoption of a healthy lifestyle.
To successfully encourage more employees to take charge of their lifestyle by taking concrete, long-term actions, companies will have to go further than simple promotional activities. Indeed, in the same report, the Conference Board of Canada concludes that although promoting health benefits is a key aspect, it is not enough to trigger the mechanisms associated with the adoption of healthy lifestyle habits.
The objective of Mr. Richard Blais, Nautilus Plus President, is straightforward: encourage more Quebec residents to adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle. “Signing up for a gym membership has never had any benefits on anyone’s health,” he joked. “You have to actually go to the gym on a regular basis, which requires effort and motivation over a long period.”
“With the CORPORAE BOOMERANG membership, the more often employees exercise, the more they save,” explains Mr. Blais, who believes that the financial incentive will be an additional source of motivation that will foster assiduity. “This approach is in line with our mission: Measurable results!” Hence, the benefits to employees are twofold; an improvement in their physical condition, and more money in their pockets.
“The CORPORATE BOOMERANG membership campaign is launched amidst the current chaos rolling over the fitness industry that has been building over the past few years,” explains Mr. Martin Légaré, Executive Vice-President at Nautilus Plus. “Instead of making a commitment to focus on helping Quebec residents improve their quality of life, some stakeholders within the industry are hedging their bets using schemes based on very low-cost memberships to recruit as many members as possible, expecting the dropout rate to work in their favour. Our proposition is to support a high participation rate to enable our members to achieve their objectives and get the results they are seeking” stated Mr. Légaré.
In addition to money credits, the new membership formula includes other benefits such as an introductory session with a personal trainer or a nutritionist, six bio-impedance body composition assessments (Bodë test) to better track results over time, and access to facilities designed with a focus on a positive reception staff to support the motivation of members.
Companies and employees who are interested in the CORPORATE BOOMERANG membership may visit www.nautilusplus.com to request a submission, or simply visit a Nautilus Plus centre.
Each year, Les Affaires magazine realizes the ranking of the 300 most important SMEs in Quebec. To be part of this ranking, the SMEs must have a common criteria which is to have less than 300 full time employees. In the 2016 ranking recently revealed, we find Nautilus Plus at the 80th rank!
This realization is possible because of our employees’ devotion and our customers’ fidelity. We wish to thank you for your support and your trust since all these years!
