Fantastic software couldn’t be without it now.

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Strive has made my admin work so much easier saving me a lot of time from day to day scheduling to completing self employment work expenses.
It’s easy to use and does everything i need it to.
Couldn’t be without this software now. Thank you strive for making my work life easier!

Pros:

I am a free lance personal trainer and fitness instructor so I work at different venues for numerous clients and classes. Strive makes it easier to keep track of where I need to be and who owes me money! I like that it’s easy to use. It does pretty much everything I need it to!

Cons:

Not able to remove classes once they have been added. When I add classes to my schedule it can be quite hard to find the correct class quickly as I have so many classes which no longer exist so it would be good to delete them To ‘clean’ the schedule up a bit!

Comments: Great decision to move from PT minder and great to be working with a company that is local that will take Striive places. Exited to be a part of the journey. If you're not on striive and reading this, make the change. Transition wasnt hard i moved over 100 members across its easily do able.

Pros:

The Software is simple to use, its simply presented and very user friendly. I have many clients who are not tech specialist and can easily book classes and set up there striive portals. It allows me to run my business without stress as its all just done through the software automated. Love that you can brand everything your colours, so it almost feels and looks like yours. Easy sign up and sign in links that can easily be added to websites. Great Software.

Cons:

Would be great if striive can offer an app for users as the number one question i get is what app do i download? Its currently a portal which once explained people do understand but having everything run through an app is just what people expect these days. The app is coming though. Be great to have a shop implemented too so you can sell merchandise etc.

Striive is pretty awesome

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Convenient as hell. Amazing customer support.

Pros:

The easy set up and idiot proof administrator side of things. It’s not intimidating to set up or alter. The support service is literally the best I have every had off any company.

Cons:

You can’t have 1 email to purchase multiple packages that are the same. For example: if 2 siblings want to join the club they both need a different email from each other. If someone could purchase multiple packages that are the same for this situation it would be perfect.

InGym replaced all my paper!

4.0 5 years ago

Comments: On the whole a good experience. Support responded to a couple of early questions I had when setting up my account. It was also great that I could use it free while I built up my client base. I tried a couple of other systems before InGym and my trial always ended before I felt comfortable paying. I didn't have that pressure with InGym.

Pros:

I originally gave InGym a try for the on-screen PAR-Qs and agreements as I wanted to find a way of avoiding carrying my folder around. It worked really well for that, and now I put all my client notes into it too. Prob the best thing about InGym is how simple it is to use.

Cons:

Couldn't use it on my phone at first, but recently they've been updating the system to add mobile support.

Ideal if you are looking for a business system

4.0 5 years ago

Comments: Simple to use and takes away a lot of monotonous jobs (paperwork, reminders, etc.). It doesn't do training programs or nutrition, just business/bookings/paperwork/money. The support is great!

Pros:

I've tried a lot of the PT software on the market and InGym is probably the nicest one from a visual/design standpoint. It's nice to use and makes daily jobs easy to complete. The schedule is very good, prob the best I've seen and managing bookings is simple and it can handle all the different training packages I do. The PAR-Q and training agreements features are also the best I've used.

Cons:

It does the things it does well, but I do think it's missing a couple of features. Some improved reporting on client progress would be nice, and taking payments online via dd. Having spoken with support a couple of times, I know these are coming at some point.
