  1. A simple reinforcement strategy for increasing attendance at a fitness facility.

    Article - En anglais

    The purpose of the present study was to examine the effect of a previously untested reinforcement strategy (i.e., 1 month's free membership) on attendance at a fitness facility.

    Participants were paying members of a fitness facility randomly assigned to control (n=100), placebo (n=100), and reinforcement (n=100) conditions.

    The control condition received no intervention ; the placebo condition received a letter by mail ; and the reinforcement condition received the same letter by mail, except that it included an additional paragraph instructing them that they could earn 1 month's free membership if they attended the fitness facility at least 12 times in the next month.

    Attendance was monitored for 1 month baseline and postintervention by using the facility's computer system.

    Analysis of variance, t tests, and chi-square analysis all revealed that the reinforcement condition had the best attendance record during the intervention period.

    These preliminary results shed some light on increasing attendance at a fitness facility.

    Discussion highlighted the practical implications of the findings and offered directions for future research.
