Why Choose Exercise.com?

Here are five reasons why fitness professionals use Exercise.com vs. OneFitStop.

 

Fitness Business Management Software to Run Your Business

Unlike OneFitStop, Exercise.com software is designed to have all components needed to run a fitness business in one place – making it easy and efficient to organize and grow your fitness business with client and class scheduling, check-ins, and billing — all from your custom-branded apps.

Workout Software to Power Your Training

OneFitStop has limited workout software that doesn't allow for clients to participate in workout challenges you create. The Exercise.com workout plan creator and exercise manager provide flexible solutions to save you time creating workouts with built-in integrations, tools, and more.

Ecommerce Software to Increase Revenue

Fitness professionals cannot use OneFitStop's limited ecommerce features to run workout challenges or sell online memberships. Exercise.com, however, has full ecommerce capabilities allowing trainers to sell single workout plans, offer automated workout memberships, run workout challenges, and deliver individual training.

Assessment Software to Improve Client Engagement and Retention

OneFitStop assessment software lacks the ability to track nutrition, but that’s not the case with Exercise.com. Take clients through personalized assessments to deliver custom workouts and nutrition notes for their individual needs – providing massive growth potential and saved time.

Stand Out With Your Own Custom-branded Apps

OneFitStop's apps provide no options for custom websites, custom branding, or to design custom exercises. Exercise.com, however, offers fully customized apps and websites built to make your life easier by providing your clients with a unified scheduling and workout experience with your brand displayed front-and-center.

And, if you want to see how OneFitStop’s additional features stack up to Exercise.com software features, check out our in-depth guide below.

What is OneFitStop?

Founded in 2012 by David Zeff and Jarron Aizen and officially launching in 2014, OneFitStop is a fitness management software platform that focuses on business management and fitness tracking.

OneFitStop offers some solid features for fitness businesses but there have been numerous complaints by clients about one of the cornerstone features — the app.

“Crashes all the time” (Google Play Store)

“This app is horrible. I really wish my gym didn’t use it. It’s the worst!! Crashes ALL the time. I have to log out & log back in every single time I want to look at the class schedule, but it crashes when I try to log in!!” (Google Play Store)

“It’s always saying loading. Doesn’t matter if I am on cellular or WiFi. Can you fix this?” (Apple Store)

In fact, the seven most recent reviews on the Apple and Google app stores combined averaged 1.3 stars out of five with every user dissatisfied with the app. As OneFitStop allows owners to have their own custom branded app, users have also shown disdain about the same issues under fitness businesses that utilize OneFitStop’s software.

This means that fitness businesses on the app stores are getting very low reviews that can wrongly reflect their business due to the inadequacies in OneFitStop’s software. When you factor this and the many features that are supposed to be done using the app, it can be hard for any fitness business owner to potentially put their business in a jeopardizing position. There are also some important software features that they lack that Exercise.com empowers you with.

Unless otherwise stated, all images and reviews below are of/about the Exercise.com software platform.

Fitness Business Management Software

With any fitness software platform, the ability to manage different areas of your business is a must. However, not only do you want the ability to manage, you want to be able to manage easily. That is why we here at Exercise.com created our dedicated Fitness Business Management Software (FBM) that is capable of managing many key features such as schedule management for classes, members, and employees as well as workout creation and delivery, billing, notifications, and more. What makes it easy for you is that all of these functions are operated within the same web and mobile apps so there is no need for downloading or learning different applications. Below, we will compare some important management features between Exercise.com and OneFitStop.

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!

Client/Class Scheduling

Exercise.com and OneFitStop both allow you to track visits and book classes/sessions. You also have the ability for calendar integration with Google and Apple on both platforms. It is unclear if you can sort clients with OneFitStop as they don’t specifically say on their website. However, with Exercise.com, you can sort clients in multiple ways such as by:

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

Gym/Facility Management

The only direct explanation of facility management capability on OneFitStop’s website is forming staff reports to take care of payroll along with the ability to optimize hours and placements. However, as of the publication of this article, this feature is not available and is said to be coming soon. When looking at their pricing table they state to offer staff management as part of their higher-priced plans but they do not expand anymore. They do allow for overall reports to view the operations of your business.

Exercise.com has various gym/facility management features that allow you to manage your staff effectively. You have the ability to provide staff accounts with different permissions and customized business and sales reports to fully analyze how your business is operating. Your customized reports can be sorted by client, location, and services further allowing multiple ways to see if changes need to be made.

Client Automation

Automation has the ability to put your business on autopilot which can create a seamless and efficient experience. It gives you more time to not only focus on the more important matters of your business but your everyday life. OneFitStop is able to automate messages/notifications via their app or email but does not expand on if automation is possible in other areas except for payments/memberships.

With Exercise.com you have the ability to automate many areas of your business. Our software platform allows you to:

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

Dedicated Zapier Support

Both Exercise.com and OneFitStop allows for the integration of over 2,000 applications through Zapier.  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).

Dedicated Account Manager

At Exercise.com, we take customer service very seriously; which is why we provide our clients with a dedicated account manager to help them through every step of the process – indefinitely. If you want to redesign your website, your account manager will get it done. If you want to set up an ecommerce store, your account manager won’t blink twice. Whatever you need, our world-class dev team will come through. From the mundane to the complex, we have you covered.

Customized Software

Your brand can oftentimes be the first thing people see, so, having the ability for your software to reflect who you and your business are can leave a good impression on potential clients

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

Both Exercise.com and OneFitStop allow for custom-branded apps but OneFitStop does not allow you to have your own custom-branded website as Exercise.com does.

iOS & Android Apps

OneFitStop offers a stand-alone app for iOS and Android devices that allows clients to book, pay,  and communicate to trainers. They also offer a custom-branded app with the same features for a greater price. As mentioned before, the many negative reviews about their stand-alone and custom apps leave much to be desired. Their proposed software issues have caused users to poorly rate individual businesses on the app store which is something that no fitness business owner would ever want.

Exercise.com equips you with numerous customizable options for your mobile apps with not just colors and logos but also verbiage, integrations, custom videos, and more.

Websites

As mentioned above, OneFitStop does not offer you your own custom-branded website. With Exercise.com you can have your own fully customizable website with a full range of engaging options and templates to choose from.

Features our custom websites provides include:

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

Security Features

OneFitStop claims to use firewalls and other security systems for security and PCI (Payment Card Industry) Service Provider Level 1 accredited security for card payments. They state that they do not use encryption or other technologies to ensure the secure transmission of information via the internet.

All of Exercise.com’s websites and mobile apps are designed to process data in accordance with the responsibilities under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Our websites and apps are encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) security and purchases are made through Stripe which is certified as a PCI Service Provider Level 1. We also utilize measures that include Privacy Shield Framework and Google Cloud

Marketing Integrations

OneFitStop allows for some marketing integrations through platforms like Xero or Quickbooks via Zapier.

In addition to Exercise.com’s built-in integrations, you have many platforms that you can integrate with that can truly market and automate your business to the fullest. Some of our more popular integrations include:

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

Exercise.com is the best OneFitStop alternative.

Workout Software

Having software capable of features in workout creation, logging, and workout delivery is an advantage for any fitness business owner. Regarding workout features, OneFitStop states that you are able to create, send, and save strength and cardio programs. You can also add comments/notes, media, and links. They do not expand on any more capabilities.

With Exercise.com, you will have numerous workout features that will improve the success of your clients and your business. Our workout features truly give you the flexibility to design customized workouts for anyone.

Workout Creator/Logger

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

1-1 Training

One-on-one training sessions can be customized to fit the needs of any in-person and/or online client.

Group Training

Group training classes/sessions can be done in a myriad of ways but no matter if it is a sports-specific or stationary bike group, our software platform allows you to design training content for any group activity.

Online Training

The internet can provide many opportunities for your business to grow and be seen. Exercise.com lets you take advantage by allowing you to design and sell online workouts and plans for in-person and/or online clients.

Exercise Library

Creating workout plans can be a tedious process; which is why Exercise.com makes it easier by providing you with an exercise library filled with thousands of exercises. These exercises can be used to create customized workouts for your clients in addition to the custom exercises that you wish to add as well. You can easily search any type of exercise needed and each exercise comes with video demonstrations, tips, location of muscles worked, and more. This is a unique feature that OneFitStop does not have.

Custom Exercises

Exercise.com allows you to create exercises to add to the library. These exercises can be filmed anywhere and can feature you, your staff members, or anybody of your choice giving you the flexibility to create content for any circumstance.

TV Workouts

Aside from providing clients with the ability to watch demos of the exercises you’ve sent them within their workout plans, gyms can use the exercise library as well as a great way to cast exercise demos onto gym television screens during group classes or one-on-one training sessions.
This is a great way to provide that “personal touch” so many people look for when choosing a gym.

Ecommerce Software

In this modern-age, ecommerce has been and will continue to be a driving force of revenue for many fitness businesses. OneFitStop allows for the selling of packages and memberships but does not offer more ecommerce capabilities. Exercise.com offers you many ecommerce and point-of-sale options that allow you to effectively sell your content.

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 Founder, Core Online
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

With OneFitStop you are able to collect payments by credit card or log manual cash payments. Exercise.com gives clients the ability to pay a one-time or recurring fee or membership with cash, check, credit card, or direct deposit, online and/or in-store. All of these payment tools can be accessed within the same custom-branded web and mobile apps you use for your clients and staff.

Sell Products

To date, OneFitStop does not allow you to sell products but they claim that their software will have the ability to do so soon. With Exercise.com you are able to sell products online or in-store. You can have an entire section for your products displayed on your web and mobile apps so clients can easily view and buy them.

Sell Workout Plans

Both Exercise.com and OneFitStop allow you to sell workout plans. However, the access to a robust exercise library that Exercise.com provides you with allows trainers to more easily devise plans for anybody, anywhere.

Offer Online Workout Memberships

Both OneFitStop and Exercise.com gives you the ability to sell online workout memberships with automated billing.

Sell Workout Challenges

Another unique capability that Exercise.com possesses is the ability to create workout challenges. These challenges can not only attract new clients that are especially on online platforms but can re-engage your in-person clients as well.

Assessment Software

There is way more to fitness than just losing calories or gaining muscle; it is about improving one’s overall health. Because of this, it is important that the software you use has features dedicated to the health of clients.

At Exercise.com, our software platform is made to help clients live healthier lives. Our Assessment software allows you to:

  • Reengage clients through automated assessments
  • Retain clients by showing progress
  • Track measurement data, injuries, etc.
  • Optimize the delivery of personalized workouts and nutrition

Below, we will see how OneFitStop compares when it comes to assessments, performance/measurement reports, and nutrition.

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!

Assessments

OneFitStop gives you the ability to assess clients through pre-built or custom questionnaire forms for PAR-Q or General & Medical Questions. With Exercise.com, you can perform custom assessments that can automatically trigger custom workouts based on the data acquired. These assessments can provide history, measurement data, injuries, photos/videos, and goals allowing you to specifically analyze any individual.

Performance & Measurement Reports

As part of the assessment, OneFitStop allows you to record metrics such as BMI, body fat percentage, body shape, speed, power, agility, strength, endurance, flexibility, and more. With Exercise.com you have a wide range of performance and measurement options to choose from such as weight, height, activity level, distance runs, power output, range of motion measurements, and others. Both software platforms allow you to add progress photos.

Nutrition

There is no nutritional tracking capability within OneFitStop’s software. With Exercise.com, you can monitor your client’s eating habits and track daily nutrients such as carbs, fat, protein, etc. You can upload meal plans, files, and pictures truly giving you the ability to further improve the nutrition and overall health of your clients.

The Bottom Line: Pros and Cons

Choosing the right software can be a crucial and difficult decision for your fitness business. However, the numerous capabilities that Exercise.com offers make this decision easy.

OneFitStop Cons

OneFitStop offers some good features that can be useful for fitness businesses but these features are of no use if they don’t work. Hard-working fitness business owners are getting 1-star reviews on the app stores because of OneFitStop’s software implications. With the numerous recent reviews stating that their software application does not function, it has and can continue to put fitness businesses at a large disadvantage. There are also some important features, such as nutritional tracking, that OneFitStop lacks.

Exercise.com Pros

The Exercise.com all-in-one fitness software platform gives you numerous opportunities to grow and manage your business.
