Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:
“[This is the] best local gym around. [It is] open 24/7 for members, yet has full-service staff most of the time. [The] owners know their stuff and are caring people who take pride in their gym and helping others. Their care shows, as this is also the cleanest gym around.” – Steve T.
Not Your Average Fitness Center
Steve Behan, the owner of Semper Fitness 24/7, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.
The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Semper Fitness 24/7 apart from the many other fitness centers in Pennsylvania. Here’s Steve’s response:
“The number one thing is that we care. Whether you talk to me or one of the employees, we genuinely care about helping people get healthy. I sell an environment here, and it’s a comfortable environment. Try and make sure the gym is accessible to everybody; a lot of people don’t feel comfortable joining a gym, and what I do here is try and make everyone feel comfortable. If you’re a bodybuilder, if you need to lose 150 pounds, if you’re a grandma looking to alleviate back pain, we’re glad to have you!”
Steve told us that even the fitness center’s color scheme — which is blue and green — is designed to encourage people to exercise longer and make them feel more comfortable. He aimed to open the gym with an inclusive environment, and his focus is on employing certified trainers, ensuring that someone is always there to offer guidance and expertise. He even makes it easy for his members to cancel and freeze their membership, so that, when they get the fitness bug again, they’ll come back to Semper Fitness.
We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Semper Fitness 24/7 and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Steve had to say:
“There are a lot of reasons to not come to the gym, and I’m trying to break down those barriers.”
Steven went on to tell us a little bit about their community involvement:
“I coach strength and conditioning at the local high school. We also spend advertising dollars with the local organizations we want to support.”
Building Success Through Organic Reviews
When we asked Steve about Semper Fitness 24/7’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he told us that he’s never asked for any reviews to be added or removed, which means that all of Semper Fitness’ reviews are organic.
Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Semper Fitness 24/7 has spread the word about who they are and what they do through Facebook boosting and brand advertising in their community (such as shopping cart ads at local grocery stores). He told us that the challenge is making the gym busier earlier in the day, and he focuses his attention on attracting an older demographic in order to overcome it.
Clearly, Steve knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:
“Practice the golden rule, and everything else falls into place. If you treat everyone the way you want to be treated, the checking book will reflect that. People don’t remember what you say; they remember how you made them feel.”
Congratulations to the team at Semper Fitness 24/7 for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Steve, for taking the time to speak with us!
