The Arena Club
The Arena Club, located in Bel Air, MD, is the real deal for getting your body and mind fit. The health club offers nearly anything you can think of: state-of-the-art fitness equipment, personal training sessions, a saltwater therapy pool, an elite indoor turf field, and over 85 group fitness classes. Not to mention, the Arena Club boasts the largest waterpark in Harford County!
As you can see, the Arena Club really has their stuff together when it comes to health, fitness, and fun. But, when it came to generating new leads through digital marketing, they wisely sought out some assistance.

After hearing all of the Arena Club’s objectives, the DGA team was ready to get our hands dirty! It wasn’t going to be a quick job, however. The Arena Club needed 60+ web pages to house all of the necessary content. Using our analyst’s reports, we were able to identify the type of content and the locations that users seemed to opt for.
Our content team ran through all of the Arena Club’s images, PDFs, videos, and contact forms with a fine-toothed comb. We kept the best of the best and optimized the rest.
