Your Biggest Competitor Might Not Be Other Gyms

Your biggest competition may not be other gyms in your area or apps and in-home fitness equipment. When it comes to your scheduled group fitness classes or personal training sessions, you’re up against something even bigger: time. You and your clients are busy and pulled in a million different directions, but consistent engagement is crucial for your gym’s growth and your client’s success. SmartCore can help you increase your group fitness attendance in just a matter of minutes.

SmartCore’s secret? The ability to make a quick, direct appeal to your clients that lets them take action without jumping through hoops. Everyone needs a push now and then to get back into the swing of things or try a new class they’ve had their eye on.

In this 5 Minutes (or Less) video, SmartCore Founder and CEO Andrew Crowder shows you how to communicate directly with current and former clients about class openings via email or text, creating a little FOMO by letting them know that only a few spots remain. Your members can browse open classes and register in just a couple of clicks.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Select what classes have open spots
  • Choose who to notify and what type of alert to send
  • Send a message and deliver a notification to members

Plus, you’ll get to see what it looks like from a member’s perspective when you engage with them using SmartCore!

Smartcore is a GREAT gym app! As an owner, I find it to be easy to navigate, edit, program and use in general. My clients have reported they appreciate the clean easy look and ease to sign up or cancel a class. Working alongside Andrew has been great! He is not only always available and knows how to explains things clearly, but is also a great guy! Thank you for everything!

Everything about this app/site has changed my business for the better. It’s simple to use as an admin, and the user facing side of the app (my members) love how easy it is to sign up, change or augment membership, buy and use training packages and the website platform is fantastic. They keep it easy to use, are always a phone call or text away if you need anything, and are always looking for suggestions on ways to make my experience better. After using some of the bigger expensive programs that don’t really care about the small business, I’m so happy I switched to SmartCore.

I operate a small but busy Pilates studio. After decades of doing all my scheduling and billing with no technology support, I selected SmartCore for a new website with these functions integrated. I was drawn to this smaller app developer with a specific focus on fitness providers. Seven months later, I am very happy with my choice! I save hours each week on client communications about scheduling. Payments and package tracking are efficient, and I like the automated reminders. My clients and I also appreciate the mobile app.

I am not technologically proficient, but I find the website easy to customize and update. The company owner was extraordinarily helpful and patient in getting me started. He walked me through every single step and continues to be available for answering questions and quickly correcting any problems that come up. No platform is perfect, but SmartCore is always striving to improve with regular feature updates and tutorials. They encourage and respond to customer feedback. The platform works well for my solo practice with mostly private clients. It is also scalable for multiple instructors and group classes. Give it a try!
