Balance Your Fitness Business Using SmartCore

Grit Life Fitness Gets SmartCore VIP Treatment

We’ve all been there before. You signed up for software to help make your business run more smoothly, but it causes more hassles or doesn’t work hard for you the way it promised. You’re ready to make a change, but it seems overwhelming because you’re also trying to recruit potential clients, serve the clients you have, and take care of pesky administrative tasks.

COVID has caused chaos in the fitness industry, provoking many to find new ways of helping clients. It also allowed many personal trainers the freedom and flexibility to slow down and think more strategically about their tools to manage, communicate, and grow.

When our SmartCore CEO, Andrew Crowder, met Kristina Courage of Grit Life Fitness at the SCW Conference in Boston, she was in a similar position. Unhappy with her business management tools, she and Andrew discussed the possibility of using SmartCore to resolve some of her pain points.

Kristina signed up as an early adopter of SmartCore, and we gave her the VIP treatment. We supported her fully with onboarding, including hands-on training to set up her website, a creative review of her logo and images, content review to ensure her offering was clear, concise, and consistent, and one-on-one technical support to resolve any other issues in transitioning her account to SmartCore.

Says Kristina, “I have been so pleased to work with Andrew and his team. Everyone is helpful and knowledgeable. What I like most is that I know I am working with real people and not some person I have never seen or met. Any issues are resolved quickly and with good communication. I have received many comments from my own clients on how easy the new website and app are to use.”

We are so thrilled for Kristina and her clients! Thank you for trusting us with your business. We can’t wait to see you shine!

My experience with SmartCore has been amazing because they continue to improve with their features and ease of use. This is an essential tool for my business and I am glad I choose SmartCore. I can always reach out to them and get a speedy response. I am a small business owner and SmartCore always has time for me, they are personal and understand my needs.

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!
