ClubReady Software Review

clubready logo

Founded in 2009 and incorporated as a full-fledged club management software application in 2014, ClubReady is a business-branded, web-based, fitness, health, and wellness club management platform. ClubReady is a mid-sized company of fewer than 200 employees. ClubReady is a privately held company out of Chesterfield, Missouri. Some companies that use ClubReady are 9Round, Anytime Fitness, Fit Body Boot Camp, and some pilates studios.

Exercise.com has a proven track record working with fitness businesses. Our vision is to build an all-in-one fitness business management software that allows both fitness professionals and exercise enthusiasts to reach their goals one workout at a time.

Because our team customizes each businesses’ software to meet their unique needs, we’ve been able to partner with standout professionals in the industry. Exercise.com has provided business support for some of the biggest and best for over a decade as seen in the graphic in the section above.

Now, get ready to dive into the ClubReady software features and how they stack up to the features offered by Exercise.com.

ClubReady vs Exercise.com

While ClubReady offers great business convenience features, the Exercise.com software platform’s unique customization and dev team put your brand front and center in your custom-designed apps, making it easier for clients and customers to find you and trust your business.

With that in mind, let’s see how ClubReady’s custom software and features stack up to the customization features from Exercise.com.

Unless otherwise stated, all images and reviews below are of/about the Exercise.com All-In-One Fitness Business Management software platform.

Fitness Business Management Software

According to some clients, the ClubReady platform seems to feel a bit clunky or unresponsive when it comes to needing access to concise movements when selling membership plans/options or checking in on clients. For example:

  • “Club Ready had a lot of updates, which can be a good thing, but issues with CC payment processing before an update was a bit of a pain when you have customers waiting.” – Capterra Review
  • “Custom membership options are difficult to piece together, and manual overrides for automated functions aren’t always easy to implement.”
    Capterra Review
  • “System crashes quite often, not that user-friendly, not that great for auto-renewals.”G2 Review
Developing an easy intake system with my apps and ways to scale the delivery of workouts has been huge. Working with 20-30 individuals who each have specific goals and restrictions can be challenging, but your platform makes it easy to organize everyone’s programs and put a plan together that will get them the best results possible.
Dean Somerset 
We went live with our Fitness Business Management software at 4 locations. Everything is working great. The import and export are easy and the guys are really liking the look and convenience of the platform. From both my side and the user side the platform has exceeded our expectations.
FMSHS 
The simple, effective tools help expand and simplify my coaching process.
Dean Somerset 
Before I came across Exercise.com, the process I used to try and communicate a program with an athlete long distance was extremely cumbersome. Those days are long gone, and I look forward to providing professional, clean, organized, and effective programs to clients for years to come.
Chip Gosewich PMR Performance
The Exercise.com team is amazing, and their all-in-one software is more than we ever expected! All of this is made possible by a high-quality team.
Exercise.com makes my life easier by providing an all-in-one solution and the opportunity to help those who otherwise would never have access to my programming!
Tony Gentilcore Founder, Core Online

Client/Class Scheduling

With ClubReady, clients are able to log into member portals to sign up for classes.

The Exercise.com calendar also allows clients to sign up for classes and will empower gym owners and trainers to track visits, book classes and sessions, engage with clients with recurring appointment reminders via email and text, and provide calendar integration with Google and Apple for easy management. You can also sort by:

  • Trainer
  • Location
  • Service
  • Recurring
  • Time
  • Availability

Gym/Facility Management

ClubReady provides users with various gym/facility management features like staff permissions, payroll, and employee clock-in. They also offer a ClubReady clock-in kiosk for members to check-in. Users can utilize ClubReady’s GymHQ software for access to features like customer service, past-due communication, accounting, payroll, operations guidance, and HR.

Exercise.com gym/facility management saves you time with assignable staff roles, so you can put staff management on autopilot. We also make reports easy — sales, business, appointments, class, and payroll reports are all in one place. There’s no need for additional software. Plus you can sort reports by:

  • Client
  • Location
  • Services

These reports empower you to have your finger on the pulse of your business, and if you’re bringing on new trainers, you’ll know how much to pay staff based on commissions.

Client Automation

ClubReady and Exercise.com both have automation features that make it easy to interact with clients.

The automation features from Exercise.com keep clients engaged and motivated. A few of the Exercise.com software platform automation offerings are:

  • Automatic Emails and Texts/Other Automatic Features
  • Highlight Exercise.com
  • Automate Workout Delivery
  • Automate Resource Delivery
  • Automate Assessment Delivery
  • Automate Reminders/Alerts via app, text, and email

Dedicated Zapier Support

The Exercise.com partnership with Zapier allows you to, in Zapier’s words, “Integrate (link your web apps with a few clicks, so they can share data), Automate (pass info between your apps with workflows called Zaps), and Innovate (build processes faster and get more done – no code required).

Part of this partnership includes dedicated Zapier support to help you through every step of the process. With over 2,000 apps to choose from, you can rest assured that your company’s website is as efficient and user-friendly as possible.

Dedicated Account Manager

Customer service matters a great deal to us at Exercise.com. Every client is provided with a dedicated account manager to help them with any and all software-related needs. From a website redesign to setting up an e-commerce store, your account manager is here to help.

Customized Software

ClubReady offers basic branded apps that include a company’s colors and logo. Exercise.com, however, provides custom websites and apps. There are no additional fees for fully-customized software. When you sign up for Exercise.com software, everything is created with your wants and needs in mind by our world-class dev team.

All my clients are required to use my online training. When training with me personally face-to-face, they have my app. They train with me—let’s say two days—and then they have the app for one. So they’re constantly working out on their own or required to utilize the app logging so that I can now check on them
Ashton Roberts AR Performance Training
For a while now, we have been looking for a great way to provide an all-encompassing experience for basketball players. The customization features of the web platform and custom-branded apps have allowed us to do that, creating the perfect marriage between our expert content and all of the really cool features that help separate us from the rest of the competition.
Kyle Ohman Basketball HQ
Exercise.com has brought a whole new element to my programming. I am super jealous of my brand and make quite a few demands, um, suggestions for the app. They are always eager to work with me and go above and beyond to deliver. Truly a gold medal team!
Kellie Davis Fit Thrive
Developing an easy intake system with my apps and ways to scale the delivery of workouts has been huge. Working with 20-30 individuals who each have specific goals and restrictions can be challenging, but your platform makes it easy to organize everyone’s programs and put a plan together that will get them the best results possible.
Dean Somerset 
Exercise.com has allowed a lot of flexibility with integration, so I can better connect with my customers. They developed a way to integrate with my CMR so I can send email sequences after purchasing, and they also created an upsell option on the sales page that offers exclusive products to customers.
Kellie Davis 
The Exercise.com team is amazing, and their all-in-one software is more than we ever expected! All of this is made possible by a high-quality team.

Custom-Branded

ClubReady’s apps are custom-branded to include your company’s name and logo but are not fully customized. Exercise.com’s apps, however, are. With our custom apps and websites, it’s your name front-and-center. It’s your business that’s being celebrated. It’s your brand that’s featured.

iOS & Android Apps

When comparing custom-branded apps, Exercise.com is in a class of its own. You can customize more than just colors and logos. It’s your brand and each app has customization options for your workout library, client language, colors, integrations, performance health software, and more.

On ClubReady’s app page, that deep customization isn’t one of their core features.

With ClubReady, client apps will always say ClubReady. The difference is stark: Exercise.com empowers businesses to grow their brand. ClubReady is growing its brand through your business’s brand.

Websites

ClubReady does not provide clients with custom websites. Exercise.com, however, does!

Some of the features our custom websites include are:

  • Responsive
  • SEO optimized
  • Unlimited theme changes
  • Built to convert visitors to leads
  • Custom graphic work
  • Google Certified Partner
Security Features

Protecting the data of your business and your clients is incredibly important, which is why our custom websites and apps are outfitted with various security measures.

Exercise.com’s security features include:

  • SSL Secure
  • Privacy Shield Framework
  • Google Cloud

Marketing Integrations

ClubReady integrates with companies like Emma for email marketing and iKizmet for data tracking but seems to lack in providing users with a wide range of purposeful marketing integrations.

For your business’ marketing, Exercise.com allows you to automate your efforts by connecting to an array of built-in integrations, including:

  • MailChimp
  • ConstantContact
  • ConvertKit
  • Zapier
  • Google Analytics
  • Facebook Pixel

Grow and manage your fitness business better with Exercise.com

All fields must be filled out!

Workout Software

Exercise.com workout software towers above the workout software capabilities of ClubReady. Why? Because ClubReady focuses more on business management than it does on workout creation and implementation. For a fitness business that wants business management and workout software, Exercise.com has the upper hand.

Workout Creator/Logger

ClubReady doesn’t allow for workout templates to be created and sent to clients via their software application; however, ClubReady partners with FitMetrix.

Exercise.com software, on the other hand, contains a powerful workout creator that also allows you to input your videos of the exercises, without the need for a third-party software, making it easier for clients to understand and complete their workouts.

As professionals, we all know how difficult it can be to personalize workouts for each and every client. Having access to these templates allows even the most popular trainers to stay ahead and continue challenging all of their clients.

How much time could you save if you didn’t have to hunt down or interpret client or member data? What you need is a smart workout software with everything all in one place.

Our workout creator/logger provides users with endless possibilities for delivering workouts, tips, and encouragement to clients in any scenario, including:

1-1 Training

By utilizing Exercise.com workout software, personal trainers can conduct one-on-one training sessions with clients that are looking for that personal touch.

Group Training

Not only does Exercise.com workout software allow trainers to conduct one-on-one training sessions, but it also allows for seamless group training sessions that clients can access online in addition to in-person.

Online Training

As more fitness enthusiasts transition to a more on-the-go, digital lifestyle, fitness studios have had to adapt by offering online training. Exercise.com workout software allows users to send workouts to anyone, at any time, anywhere (and it allows users to sell online programs as well – more on that later).

Exercise Library

ClubReady does not provide users with an exercise library.

Exercise.com not only provides users with an exercise library full of workout demos, but our software allows trainers to upload custom exercises to the library as well.

Custom Exercises

By featuring your staff members in custom exercise demos versus a stranger, you help your clients connect with your brand better. The videos feel more personal and allow your brand to shine.

TV Workouts

Not only can your clients watch demos of the exercises you’ve sent them, but you can also cast your Exercise.com demo videos onto gym television screens during group classes or one-on-one training sessions.

E-Commerce Software

E-commerce is an important part of business software, especially for fitness and health businesses. ClubReady and Exercise.com both provide users with the ability to sell products, training sessions, and workout memberships.

However, Exercise.com’s added ability to sell workout plans and workout challenges helps it excel when it comes to e-commerce. The system is simple to use and significantly lowers the amount of training your staff will need because it’s the same software they use for workout delivery and to manage the day to day tasks of your business.

My custom-branded apps have made my life easier and helped streamline my online training, which in turn has transformed into a pretty awesome additional revenue stream for me and my family.
Tony Gentilcore 
Exercise.com has enabled our company to expand in ways we couldn’t imagine possible. As a Strength Coach that also manages the business this platform has made it much easier to get our programming out to not only our local clientele but also new clientele throughout the world as well as our professional athletes in different cities.
Eric Mahanke Carr Elite
I sold a workout program and matched my yearly salary of in-person training within two weeks of selling to my community.

Payment Processing

ClubReady has payment processing capabilities and meets all PCI compliance standards.

Exercise.com’s partnership with Stripe allows gym facility clients to pay one-time or recurring fees with cash, check, or credit card. You can also accept direct deposits and can set up a full e-commerce shop to allow for online purchasing of various packages and products. Sales and business reports are also readily available to make managing your business a breeze.

Sell Products

As stated above, ClubReady has e-commerce capabilities that allow users to sell products.

However, Exercise.com goes a step further and allows users to not only sell products and memberships but to sell these workout-centric items as well:

Sell Workout Plans

Sell pre-built workout plans with Exercise.com. Some clients may not have the money for personal training or may not feel the need to pay for a custom-made training plan. Pre-built workout plans are great for the client that wants a general outline to follow without the customization that comes with one-on-one training.

Offer Online Workout Memberships

Some clients want custom-built workout plans but can’t commit to working with a trainer in person. Online workout memberships are perfect for this crowd. They are able to receive, for example, six weeks of custom-built workouts but can tackle the workouts at a time and at a location that is convenient for them.

Sell Workout Challenges

In a fitness business, a sense of community is beneficial. Running a workout challenge is a great way to foster a close gym community. Your members will feel like they are a part of something and will likely provide your gym with free advertising by talking to their friends, family members, and coworkers about the challenge they just signed up for!

Performance Health Software

ClubReady’s Performance Tracking systems allow club owners to track various metrics like heart rate and cycling stats through their performance data software, PerformanceIQ. Outside of tracking metrics like heart rate, calories burned, power, and RPM, how does this software stack up to Exercise.com Performance Health Software?

Let’s find out.

Assessments

While ClubReady does have performance tracking software, it does not provide its users with custom assessments.

This is a disservice to their clients because assessments are valuable. Businesses can charge for them and trainers can use the results as a baseline for evaluating the progress of their clients. Exercise.com provides users with the ability to conduct custom assessments based on a client’s goals or sport of choice.

Working with Exercise.com and their team has been an amazing experience and a dream come true in terms of accomplishing a vision! Their workout technology has helped us effectively engage our community, and I highly recommend Exercise.com to grow your business!
APMD Performance 

Performance & Measurement Reports

Keeping your clients engaged with your business is important; which is why Exercise.com gives users the ability to automate performance and measurement reports. Reminding them of their goals and progress is a great way to keep them engaged with your business.

Nutrition

ClubReady does not offer nutrition tracking.

The dietary choices clients make on a daily basis are crucial to clients reaching their goals. Exercise.com provides users with the ability to have clients track their daily intake so trainers can provide guidance, tips, and, if necessary, referrals to registered dieticians.

ClubReady Software Pricing

At this time, ClubReady has not made its pricing for its software public. This includes base models and any customization upgrades that they may have available. ClubReady does offer a live demo for 30 days.

The Bottom Line: Pros and Cons

Finding the perfect management software for your business can be a challenge. Fortunately, Exercise.com makes things easy by providing a wide range of features in a fully-customizable, easy-to-use format.

ClubReady Cons

Although ClubReady is a highly rated all-in-one health and fitness club management software that allows the business owner to gain access to a ton of features, ClubReady isn’t built for customization.

One of the primary focuses of Exercise.com is customization. Our business platform gives you personalized POS options, automatic functions, workout and performance health assessments.

ClubReady is a functional system for franchise owners, but most of us in the industry need software tailored directly to our business.

Thankfully, you don’t have to settle.

Exercise.com all-in-one software will take on the look of your business, do what your business needs for it to do, and take the work out of the busy work for you. Plus, we will be there to help develop features to meet the exact needs of your fitness business.

Exercise.com Pros

Exercise.com’s team is constantly making development improvements and seeking out new ideas from our clients. We are always coming up with innovative ways to help your business grow. If we haven’t created it yet, we will.

Your business won’t have to adapt using Exercise.com software, as our tech team is built to adapt to you and your growing business needs on an individual to individual basis. We know your business isn’t exactly like anyone else’s, and we’re here to help your business stand out from the rest. We celebrate that uniqueness.

Exercise.com all-in-one business software can serve you in a variety of ways, the most important being: giving you the necessary tools to grow your business, deliver value to your clients while keeping them engaged, and automate as much as possible—making your life as a business owner that much easier.

Hopefully, you see the benefit of not waiting to have a system and software in place that allows you to manage and grow your business for years to come.
