The Fit Guide club rating system launches in Singapore

The Fit Guide club rating system launches in Singapore
June 30, 2023

The organisers of The FIT Summit have advised that The Fit Guide - the only global, independent rating system for premium fitness clubs and studios - has now launched in Singapore.

While restaurants and hotels have long-established and respected rating systems recognising excellence, there has not previously been a global authority for the fitness industry.

Just like the Michelin Guide’s famous incognito ‘inspectors’, The Fit Guide has sent highly-trained Experience Evaluators to the world’s leading clubs and studios to assess the complete client experience, scoring 250 objective standards on each visit.

The evaluation process covers everything from reception service, group class experience and facilities, to technology and online presence - all of which make up a truly premium fitness experience.

The Guide highlights both the facility and service with a special focus on the experience - how the process, the team and the workout make you feel, from start to finish.

The Guide awards the world’s very best fitness clubs and studios four- and five-star ratings, with special mentions given to clubs that have been ‘endorsed’ and ‘rated’.

Through an online portal, each club has private access to a breakdown of their results across each of our five categories. Clubs also have the option to access a detailed, full report highlighting all standards and observations - an essential tool for recognizing excellence and identifying areas for improvement.

The Guide has set the bar high for the industry, with around 5% of clubs visited achieving The Fit Guide 5-Star Award, the highest accolade.

The Fit Guide sends a free bi-weekly newsletter sharing important industry trends based on the more than 75,000 data points they have collected.

FIT Summit shares The Fit Guide’s values of collaboration and excellence, with the company advisinf “we’re excited to see how their process and data can help us all improve”.
