The Intro section in this free fitness html template is a full background image. It comes with a parallax effect to enable a full emotional feeling to your website. The purpose of these kind of sections is to focus the visitors’ attention to a succinct message. And this is also supported by your call to action(s).
There are a couple more similar sections in the template to enable you to diversify your content. These sections are a good page break as well. They help your visitors scan your content easier, while giving you the means to highlight content.
Most online businesses choose to display their prices online. For this purpose, this section is a good start to list your services or products. Bring together prices and a call to action for your visitors to click and choose.
An additional technical aspect here is that this section makes use of svg files. These are used most often for icons. It was relevant to showcase how you can use these in the template, not only pictures. You’ll get the hang of it quickly. You include you svg code at the top of the page, together with a name. Then you reference the name in the section to display the icon. You can extrapolate this functionality to other sections, as you see fit.
The team section is not relevant for all businesses. But for your fitness business, you might want to introduce the trainers, their skills/specialty and to link to a details page for each of them. For your visitors, purchasing is an emotional decision. So introducing them to the team helps you drive more business and helps improving your conversion rates.
Multi-column text and image sections
There are many cases where you might need a multi-column structure for your content.Like for multiple locations, group classes, events, retreats, or other topics.
You can choose to display in each column an image, title, description, link, button, etc. Each item in a column can be discarded. Or you can choose to add other items cross-sections as well (for example, buttons).
Large image section
Besides a full background image section, you can make use of sections that allow more space for text, rather than an image. There are several different sections available with different layout orientation (left/right image placement). And optimized for different image sizes.
Two quote sections are included in the template – single and multi-column. Fitness websites often display a wide array of quotes from different sources. And that’s mainly to diversify quality proofs to their new customers. You can include reviews from existing customers, your listings in media or press, trainers’ certifications and so on.

Last, while the template is designed for humans, it also supports SEO strategies. What we mean by this is the way it was built.
