Another Reason Why Cloud based gym management software matters

Filed under: cloud, fitness club software — Tags: — MattZ @ 10:43 am

Seems like we hear a lot about the conveniences of cloud-based software.  You can access it from anywhere there is an internet connection, on your phone or on a tablet.

This video gives an example of another good reason to use a cloud-based club management software:  You never know when a tornado might rip through your gym and destroy your computer:

While their computer may not have been lost in this storm, lots of things can take out your computer.

Yet another great reason to consider the world’s best cloud-based fitness club management software – iGo 360!

If you stick with your client based software, don’t forget to regularly back up your data offsite

Cheers,

I had a gut feeling about that

Filed under: Uncategorized, fitness club software — MattZ @ 8:29 am

My wife has always preached to me about probiotics and how they help the digestive tract.

This is a good article on the importance of all that and when it develops.

http://www.lifetime-weightloss.com/blog/2014/5/12/5-factors-that-influence-gut-health.html

This made me think of how many people make decisions based on a gut feeling. Have to admit I do too.  When I thought about it, I realized my gut feeling decisions are usually based on a heck of a lot of research, data and personal experiences.

Gut feelings based on limited or no data at all tend not to work out as well as a gut feeling supported by a research and knowledge.

When you decide to implement the best fitness club software to run your facility, do the research.  Determine what’s best for you.  Then go with your gut.

Cheers,

Does your Gym need rescuing?

Filed under: Gym Management Software, fitness club software — MattZ @ 12:41 pm

Saw this article and thought I’d pas it along.  Seems like they’ll make a reality TV show out of anything these days.

If you feel like your gym needs rescuing, you might want to look at the fitness club management software your using. There’s all kinds of horns and whistles available these days to help you gain more members or keep your members longer.  Check with training to see if there are any features you’re not using that might help.  If the features you need aren’t there, consider upgrading to the best gym management software in the world!

Cheers

If you’re still using Windows XP, you need to read this

Filed under: fitness club software — MattZ @ 2:59 pm
If you have not heard, Microsoft is discontinuing support for Windows XP April 8.
Its been a solid OS for many years, but its 13 years old.
So why does Microsoft’s support of XP really matter?   Answer:  Hackers are going to have a field day.  Many Windows updates are security related – i.e., plugging a whole some hacker has exploited.  Without the updates, you’re exposed.
Using an awesome cloud based fitness club management software like iGo 360 is great, but you’re still exposed if the computer you’re using it on has XP.
Take a look at the options available  and pick the one you like best.  If you have not done a Windows installation, you should call your computer tech for help.  Good luck!
Cheers,

The Coolest Thing at IHRSA

Filed under: Gym Management Software, Uncategorized, fitness club software — MattZ @ 2:13 pm

Just returned from the IHRSA trade show in San Diego last week.

The show is ginormous.  Hundreds and hundreds of exhibitors were there showing off the latest in fitness.

With so much to see, you might think I have an opinion on the coolest new fitness concept.  Unfortunately, we were so busy the entire time, I did not have a chance to walk the trade show floor!

From our perspective, the crowd response to our new member portal was the coolest.  Once people saw how easy it is for a member to schedule PT or group classes right from their phone, or pay a bill, or buy more PT class credits. they were blown away.  They also loved the clean easy-to-use look of iGo 360 – screen shots of the iGo 360 dashboard and member portal below.

If you think of another cool feature you’d like to see in our new iGo 360 Fitness Club Management software, let us know and we’ll see if we can add it.

Cheers,

Matt

Member Portal

Filed under: Club Management Software — MattZ @ 10:53 am

We just released the Member Portal for the iGo 360 club management software.

Very cool feature.  Your members can login into their account to schedule PT or classes, buy PT or classes, pay invoices and much more. They can do this from their computer, iPhone, smart phone or iPad.

Member credit card declined for this month’s dues payment?  Your member gets an email prompting them to login to their member portal to pay their bill.

The feature also allows prospects to join your club and pay the sign up fee online.

Check it out at our booth at IHRSA next week or call for a demo.

The best club management software in the world just keeps getting better!

Cheers,

Matt

Social Media Migraine

Filed under: Club Management Software — MattZ @ 5:06 pm

Seems that if you blink, you miss 20 innovations in social media.  Pinterest, Google Plus, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, Google hangouts, Google circles.  And it goes on and on and on.  I think I developed a social media migraine trying to think through all the opportunities out there, and then how to manage them so they actually work.  Not a day goes by without someone asking me about the best way to manage all that.  Each time I tell them the same thing – your job is to get them in the gym and keep them coming back for more.  And nothing works better than the personal touch.  Take notes on your members. Get to know them.  Call them every now and then.  Keep notes and set follow reminders in your club management software.

You fight hard to get your members.  Don’t be afraid to use Alexander Graham Bell’s old school invention to help keep those members.  And don’t worry so much about keeping up with the latest SnapTwitFace.

Friday Humor

Filed under: Go Figure — MattZ @ 2:25 am

I was at the gym breaking a sweat and this beautiful young woman walked in. I went to the trainer and asked what machine I should use to impress her. The trainer looked me over and said: “I would recommend the ATM in the lobby.”
