Why Choose Exercise.com?

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

 

Fitness Business Management Software to Run Your Business

Unlike RhinoFit, 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

RhinoFit does not offer workout software – an essential component for running a fitness business. 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 RhinoFit's limited ecommerce features to sell training packages or workout challenges. 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

RhinoFit lacks assessment software, but that’s not the case with Exercise.com. Your clients will receive personalized assessments that deliver custom workouts for their individual needs – providing massive growth potential and saved time. All for one price. All on one platform.

Stand Out With Your Own Custom-branded Apps

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

What is RhinoFit?

RhinoFit is a gym management software focused on managing different aspects for a business such as digital waivers, appointments, and product management.

RhinoFit was created in 2012 as a Crossfit gym management software but has grown to manage gyms, dojos, clubs, and fitness studios. While catering to a variety of niches, RhinoFit is not without its faults. Some reviews highlight the lack of user-friendliness and the lack of customer support:

“The app is not user friendly. You have to sign in every time, the buttons are hard to push because they are so tiny. The email does not have spell check, there is a lot of room for error when sending out mass emails.”(Capterra)

“Tried calling multiple times for help and no answer also set an email but it’s been over a week with no response.”(Capterra)

The reviews above that say the app is not user-friendly and that their customer service is inadequate can be a bit concerning for a fitness business owner. Aside from a hard-working development team, Exercise.com has an advisory board comprised of some of the top fitness professionals to help ensure that necessary features are present in our system. This helps make certain that features are up to date and user-friendly. We also have excellent customer support service through phone, email, and chat to ensure your questions or concerns are met.

Overall, it seems that the majority of users that use RhinoFit’s system say that, for the most part, its software system performs to their basic needs. The problem, however, is that you need more than just a system to manage and grow your business. You need a fully customizable software to tend to YOUR specific business needs — something that Exercise.com provides while having the support system you can count on.

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

RhinoFit’s software is able to manage basic key areas such as attendance, class scheduling, and electronic payments. With Exercise.com, we have a dedicated fitness business management (FBM) software that is built into the same platform that is used to build workouts. There is no need to learn different systems of software as everything you need is conveniently in one place.

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.

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.

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

RhinoFit’s software is able to schedule individual or class appointments but is missing a key integrational feature — syncing with third-party calendars:

“I don’t like that there is no direct link to my phone from the RhinoFit Calendar to my google calendar. We live by our phones so this is a MUST HAVE feature.”(Capterra)

Our software at Exercise.com has the ability to integrate with not only Google calendar but Apple calendar as well. Our software also allows for public booking on your web, iPhone, and Android apps.

Gym/Facility Management

RhinoFit provides users with various gym/facility management features like staff and business reporting, member communication, and digital waivers. With RhinoFit, you are able to integrate your own custom product page, student sign-in, or membership store into your gym website. On top of including the gym/facility management integrations provided by RhinoFit, Exercise.com powers your business by connecting to Zapier, Stripe, YouTube, Vimeo, MailChimp, ConvertKit, ConstantContact, Refersion, Intercom, and more.

Business Dashboard Reports

Both Exercise.com and RhinoFit offer business dashboard reports. The reports for RhinoFit, however, are not customizable and on their website, they only highlight the ability to add a custom date range on a report.

Exercise.com business dashboard reports are easily customizable, giving you free-range to how you want to analyze your business or filter information. Whether you want to run custom reports on your revenue, staff, or clients, Exercise.com gives you many options to analyze how your business is doing.

Client Automation

RhinoFit and Exercise.com both have automation features that make it easy to interact with clients. While RhinoFit highlights its automation features in reminders and messages, Exercise.com has a wider range of capabilities in automation.

The automation features from Exercise.com keep clients engaged and motivated. A few of the Exercise.com platform’s 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 includes dedicated Zapier support. 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

With Exercise.com, every client works with a dedicated account manager to help address any and all software-related needs. Whether you want to tackle a website redesign or set up an ecommerce store, your account manager will help you every step of the way.

Customized Software

Rhinofit provides a mobile app that is compatible with iOS and Android. However, their mobile app is not fully customizable to your specific business, so that particular Rhinofit feature is lacking. The Exercise.com app, however, is.

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

As mentioned above, RhinoFit is missing the importance of featuring your brand and business on your apps and websites. Exercise.com offers you your own fully customizable app and website. You won’t be searching for a fitness software brand to find your app or website. It is your specific brand and business and it will be featured as such.

iOS & Android Apps

RhinoFit’s apps are not fully customizable like Exercise.com apps are. As for app automation, RhinoFit allows automation in different areas such as messaging and payments.

Exercise.com also allows you to automate a wide range of areas, including:

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

Websites

RhinoFit’s lack of a fully customizable website and app can lessen the marketability of your brand. With Exercise.com, you are able to have a responsive and SEO-driven website with customizable features such as inputting a blog for posts, inputting sections for ecommerce, unlimited theme changes, and custom graphic work.

Security Features

Both RhinoFit and Exercise.com feature necessary security measures in SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and Payment card industry (PCI) compliance standards.

Marketing Integrations

Integration with other companies is important. RhinoFit prefers that you use Gulf Management Systems for processing, but allows other options such as Authorize.Net, Beanstrea, and more. Exercise.com prides itself with numerous integrations with not only companies like Stripe, Vimeo, and Youtube but also:

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

Exercise.com is the best RhinoFit alternative.

Workout Software

RhnoFit’s website doesn’t mention specifically its software capability for workout creation. With Exercise.com, you have access to a simple workout plan creator and exercise manager.

Workout Creator/Logger

RhinoFit offers tracking and logging for your member’s workout performance but does not feature a workout creator.

Exercise.com has a dedicated workout plan creator which allows you to customize your own exercise library with videos, tips, steps, and notes. You are able to create workouts once and schedule any workout to clients, groups, or classes automatically. You can even automate delivery for PDFs, nutrition plans, and more. Workout progress data is also stored automatically with activity, performance records, workout snapshots, summaries, and leaderboards.

This provides flexible solutions that allow the delivery of custom workouts for any scenario such as:

1-1 Training

Exercise.com workout software allows personal trainers to conduct one-on-one training sessions with clients that are looking for that personal touch.

Group Training

In addition to one-on-one training sessions, Exercise.com workout software also allows for group training sessions that clients can access online in addition to in-person.

Online Training

Our software also provides users with the ability to send workouts to anyone, at any time, anywhere. You can also sell online workout plans for added profit!

Exercise Library

RhinoFit does not provide users with an exercise library.

Exercise.com has an exercise library full of workout demos. Our software also gives trainers the option to upload their own custom exercises and videos to the library as well.

Custom Exercises

Sometimes, you come up with a new movement that you swear by. Add it to the exercise library! By filming yourself performing the movements you’ve prescribed to clients, you’re showing your clients that you’re professional yet understand the importance of that personal touch.

TV Workouts

Cast your Exercise.com demo videos onto gym television screens during group classes or one-on-one training sessions so clients can see what their form should look like.

Ecommerce Software

RhinoFit’s software allows you to streamline your product online. Exercise.com allows you to sell pre-built single workout plans to your clients easily online as well. Selling online can be great for your business and having your products advertised specifically to your custom standards can set you apart. For example, Mike Boyle, of Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning (MBSC), had over 700 clients within 12 months of releasing programming online using our software.

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

RhinoFit allows for recurring or one-time payment options through credit card or ACH payments automatically. With Exercise.com, we created our dedicated Fitness Business Management Software (FBM) in which you can access all of your payment tools in the same custom-branded web and mobile app both easily and securely. Clients will be able to pay a one-time or recurring price with cash, check, or credit card. Our software also allows you to be able to accept direct deposits and allow online purchasing for packages.

Sell Products

RhinoFit and Exercise.com both provide users with the ability to sell products online or in-store. This allows you to build your business and utilize free advertising by selling shirts, hats, etc., with your brand’s logo.

Sell Workout Plans

With RhinoFit, you may be able to sell workout plans that you create outside of RhinoFit through the product store, but there is no specialized feature for selling workout plans on their software platform. With Exercise.com, you can fully create and sell pre-built workout plans to clients anywhere at any time.

Offer Online Workout Memberships

For those clients that want custom-built workout plans but can’t commit to heading to the gym at a specific time daily to train with a trainer, online workout memberships are perfect. Clients can purchase, for example, four weeks of custom-built workouts but have the ability to hit the workouts at a time and at a location that is convenient for them.

Sell Workout Challenges

Running workout challenges is a great way to build your gym’s community and are usually very popular in the winter months when gym members may need a bit more motivation.

Assessment Software

Assessments are important.

Clients need to see they are improving and will be happy to continue to use your services when they see results. According to RhinoFit’s website, its software allows for performance and commissionable sales tracking and benchmarks. They also have a rank and belt progression feature specifically for martial arts clients.

With Exercise.com, you are able to create custom assessments for your clients or members. That assessment can provide history, measurement data, injuries, photos/videos, and goals. You can also use the assessment to trigger a workout specifically developed for that client’s success based on smart data from their onboarding.

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 

Assessments

Exercise.com Performance Health Software allows you to deliver recurring assessments to re-engage clients while also providing progress photos and measurements. You can put together a custom way of re-engaging clients how you deem fit. Rhinofit’s software is able to set up automatic reservation reminders and custom messages; however, there is no automation feature pertaining to assessments.

Performance & Measurement Reports

RhinoFit offers streamlined reporting to organize information for your business and does allow for performance tracking and logging. However, their website does not indicate whether or not they deliver performance and measurement reports.

Exercise.com offers reports on various gym metrics in sales, business, appointments, class, and payroll all in one place. You can also sort reports by client, location, or service. And, of course, you can send and automate performance and measurement reports.

Nutrition

RhinoFit does not offer nutrition tracking.

Exercise.com, however, allows for nutrition tracking and allows trainers to send clients suggestions and notes based on their dietary logs.

RhinoFit Software Pricing

The RhinoFit gym management software price varies according to various features. Below is a table of RhinoFit pricing tiers and features:

The Bottom Line: Pros and Cons

You need to be sure to go with an up to date software that won’t limit but enhance your business growth. Here are a few pros and cons to round out this review.

RhinoFit Cons

RhinoFit’s software is capable of managing your business in the basic sense but it is not designed for YOUR business. You do not have your own fully custom branded app or website and, in essence, it may feel like your business is being plastered on their software. You need to be able to utilize software that is designed to promote your brand and business the way you want it to. With RhinoFit, there can be a lack of customizability and marketability in an age where marketability can make or break your business.

Exercise.com Pros

Exercise.com is an all-in-one fitness business management software platform that features your app, your software, and your brand. It is the reason why some of the top fitness professionals of today trust our software and help advise on new features, integrations, and more year-round. With seamless integrations and a myriad of ways you can customize your brand, Exercise.com is the best choice for your business.

We don’t merely give you software to use. We give you YOUR fully customizable software while helping you navigate and reach your goals every step of the way.
