When do I need Free Training?
You need Free Training if your studio is not only offering classes, but has facilities and/or equipment at your members' disposal.
For example, you manage a fitness studio and offer an area with open access to training equipment. Or maybe you have a swimming pool with an area for your members to access outside your swim classes.
For these cases, we added a new type of event called Free Training to the Partner Portal:
You can add all relevant information about the open access to your training area.
Free training is considered a full-day activity with no set hours. You can set up the days your Free Training should take place and for the period you want it to happen.
Where can I set up Free Training on the Partner Portal?
Select '+ New Event' in the top right corner and then choose 'Free Training Session' in the next step.
How do I set up the Free Training?
It is as easy as creating your Partner Portal classes! You will see the overview divided into different sections: General, Details, Schedule.
