Fitness Pros Who Trust Exercise.com
ClubReady Software Review
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
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:
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
ClubReady does not provide clients with custom websites. Exercise.com, however, does!
Some of the features our custom websites include are:
- SEO optimized
- Unlimited theme changes
- Built to convert visitors to leads
- Custom graphic work
- Google Certified Partner
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
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:
- Google Analytics
- Facebook Pixel
Grow and manage your fitness business better with Exercise.com
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.
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:
By utilizing Exercise.com workout software, personal trainers can conduct one-on-one training sessions with clients that are looking for that personal touch.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
