Setup MailChimp integration to Wodify:

- Click the 'Audience' tab

- Fill out the details for your audience; remember the name of your audience
- Open your Audience
- Click the 'Settings' button from the horizontal navigation and click 'Audience fields and *|MERGE|* tags'
- Click 'Add a field' and create the fields below:

IMPORTANT: If you have multiple locations in Wodify and you would like to have separate MailChimp Audience by Location, please be aware of the Location field. When adding the 'Location' field, you will want to make sure to make the field type as 'Text.' This location will pull from the athletes' default location within their Wodify profile and will allow you to send emails within Mailchimp based on Location.
