Fitness Pros Who Trust Exercise.com
One of the best behind the scenes assets about a custom Exercise.com app is the Exercise.com team’s commitment over the last decade to working with the top fitness professionals when it comes to app development.
The team at Exercise.com is a team of professionals in the fitness industry ranging in fields from therapy, wellness, and nutrition, to strength, conditioning, and performance. This diverse background in health and wellness while working with industry leaders helps keep the Exercise.com applications up-to-date on industry trends and more.
Schedulicity Software Review
In the arena of booking and scheduling, Schedulicty definitely makes a case for being one of the best products. If you’re a fitness professional or in the health and wellness industry, however, read on to find out where Schedulicty came up short in meeting the needs of fitness business management and how Exercise.com compares.
Unless otherwise stated, all images and reviews below are of/about All-In-One Fitness Business Management software platform.
Schedulicity vs Exercise.com
Schedulicity plans do come with some neat features like up to 10 free bookings per month, appointment and class calendars, unlimited class management, client management(not unlimited), reminder emails, and some basic marketing tools. They do have an iOS and Android app for your business as well.
You can add some pictures or logos to your website and app and add in some color customization but it won’t be custom-tailored directly to your brand. Everything with Schedulicity stays with Schedulicity, meaning that your clients will have to log into the client Schedulicity app to find your business in the marketplace; the app will not be custom-branded for your business, even though you can change logos and colors.
With Exercise.com, our clients won’t be searching for a fitness software brand to find your app. It’s your brand, your app from A to Z. The vision of the creators and developers of the Exercise.com software is:
“…to build an all-in-one fitness business management software that inspires fitness professionals to think big when it comes to growing their businesses, and exercise enthusiasts to pursue their fitness goals by logging one workout at a time.”
Fitness Business Management Software
Sometimes the features that a software system provides don’t always function the way the user expects them to. The difference in Schedulicity’s features and those of Exercise.com is that Exercise.com is custom-built for each and every fitness business owner individually, to make sure the shoe fits.
A Schedulicity user had this to say about its business management functions: “A bit clunky when it comes to making appointments show up on a google calendar. Sometimes the app doesn’t work as it should. I wish the app would make it easier for the business to manage their side of things, but the app is clearly designed for the customer, and the business owner needs to use the web interface for managing their side of things.”
Reviews of Exercise.com, however, are much more positive:
Common features between the Schedulicity app and a custom Exercise.com app are that both allow for purchases for services or products to be made in the system. You are also able to manage your schedules and availability from anywhere with both software applications.
Both systems also allow for recurring appointments to input into the calendar, and with Schedulicity being a schedule-making system, simple things like checking out for clients in-person and viewing client details like misses are available, and the same goes for Exercise.com.
With Exercise.com’s tabs allowing business owners to check on clients, groups, calendar and scheduling, plans, and other vital points of contact with customers, you’ll receive more than just booking capabilities, you’ll actually be able to reach your clients easier, with workout tracking and other options covered below.
Although Schedulicity features functions that allow for your business to pop up on a marketplace listing, you’ll get the same function from a custom-branded Exercise.com app. Users will have to find businesses via the Schedulicity marketplace, while businesses with Exercise.com enjoy their clients being able to search for their business, and NOT have to search for Exercise.com first.
Clients with Exercise.com can purchase products like workouts or programs without you having to lift a finger, but you’ll always be involved in some way with Schedulicity’s system. Both systems also feature automated reminder emails as a part of basic system functions.
Waitlist, no-show, and autofill options are all available with both software applications, while documents like waivers and client alerts also come with basic systems. Whereas with Schedulicity you will NOT have unlimited client management (pay by tier, which means you’ll end up paying based on how many clients you have), you will get everything, regardless of how many clients you have, with Exercise.com:
- Revenue streams like workouts and workout delivery, programs, and workout challenges
Exercise.com’s automation features make all of the above, which are the basis of revenue for gyms, not only possible and accessible but easy to enable and use.
The efficiency of business operations ensures maximum profitability and also saves extremely valuable time.
Schedulicity has no real way of creating revenue streams. Although it does include the option for users to sell workshops, classes, and products all from a marketplace, your business will be capped to those people who can only come visit your facility.
Business efficiency removes the feeling of not having enough time in the day or helping hands waiting and ready. Fitness business management with Exercise.com ensures you can spend your extra energy on creating workout plans that stick, which helps your clients progress better!
When it comes to automation, it’s hard to claim a complete victory over the Exercise.com system, and although Schedulicity’s basic functions do allow for some automatic features to be input like email and SMS reminders to clients, most of the work will still have to be completed by you, the administrator.
With Exercise.com the automation is almost endless, which means that once you insert the automation, the system basically grows with you in functionality.
From basic automatic emails and text message reminders to automated workout program delivery, automated resource delivery, and automatic assessment delivery, Exercise.com gives your business room to grow, while you get to add extra time to your hands. Here is a list of the automated services that the Exercise.com software platform provides:
- 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
Exercise.com’s partnership with Zapier includes dedicated Zapier support and access to over 2,000 apps that you can integrate into your custom website and apps for added efficiency.
Dedicated Account Manager
As an Exercise.com client, you will have access to an account manager who will be your main point of contact for all of your software-related needs. From website design to e-commerce store setup and everything in between, your account manager will work with you to maximize your brand’s full potential.
As mentioned, Schedulicity does not provide its users with full customization. Exercise.com, however, does.
Customization is where Exercise.com prides itself with its software, and even though Schedulicity is a well-rounded scheduling application, you’ll only be able to upload logos, pictures, and change the color tone of the app.
iOS & Android Apps
You will NOT get access to the following features with Schedulicity:
- Customized Web and Smartphone Apps
- When customers are in the app store, does it show their business as the developer?
- Custom Website – not just a skin cover for the developer’s app
- Custom Development Work – your direct support team works to make sure you have all the features and functions you need to succeed
- Custom Performance Health Assessment Software to Collect Smart Data – customizing assessments leads to better answers, which means better progress and results from your clients
- Custom Exercise Library – round out your client’s interaction with custom made exercises from your workouts. Be able to show and explain workouts without being face-to-face with your clients!
These features come with every Exercise.com custom branded app, designed to fit the needs of every fitness industry professional. With several apps in the TOP 15 in the Android and iOS stores, you’ll know that you’re getting a quality product that delivers with and Exercise.com app.
In addition to your custom apps, with Exercise.com you will also have a fully customized website; another feature that Schedulicity does not offer.
With your fully customized Exercise.com website, you will receive:
- SEO optimized
- Unlimited theme changes
- Built to convert visitors to leads
- Custom graphic work
- Google Certified Partner
In terms of privacy and compliance, some information is private with Schedulicity, and other information is unencrypted:
“Please note that the following information is unencrypted in Schedulicity: Reservation confirmation and reminder text messages and emails that include the client’s name and/or scheduled service. Reservation notification emails and text messages that are delivered to service providers and include the client’s name and scheduled service.”
Schedulicity doesn’t offer the requisite BAA which is the main facilitation tool in allowing a business to maintain HIPAA compliance. For any HIPAA compliant entity, this factor is non-negotiable.
With Exercise.com not only will you get secure operating features with Google Cloud integrations, but you’ll get a privacy shield framework that ensures SSL Security. Client data will remain safe, secure and encrypted with our in-house third party processing system, meaning you won’t have to process through another app other than Exercise.com.
Exercise.com’s security features include:
- SSL Secure
- Privacy Shield Framework
- Google Cloud
Exercise.com also provides users with the ability to integrate with marketing software in order to reach more clients and increase overall profits. Marketing integrations include:
- Google Analytics
- Facebook Pixel
Grow and manage your fitness business better with Exercise.com
To be fair, Schedulicity does allow for packages to be sold through their marketplace, however, that function doesn’t allow for complete creation, automation, and workout delivery to clients like the Exercise.com software does.
With Exercise.com, you’ll never have to guess, calculate, or analyze data from a spreadsheet, because workout progress data is stored automatically with activity, performance records, workout snapshots, summaries, and leaderboards.
Clients will be able to purchase workout memberships automatically which means more time for your business, more revenue in your pockets, and less time spent explaining workouts.
With every workout personalized and set to progress with each client, your business will grow right along with you and all of your clients to ensure there’s less legwork for you in running your business. From workout planning to personal training, nutritional assistance, in-person and traveling clients/athletes, training workout logging and progression check-in, Exercise.com’s custom software will deliver workouts for any scenario:
- Workout Planning-Personal Training
- Nutrition Assistance
- Goal Setting
- Traveling Athletes
- In-Person Clients
- Trainer Logging
- Online Clients
- Hybrid Clients (in-person/online)
- Busy Professionals
Trainers can customize their clients’ workouts to best fit their clients’ needs and goals and can conduct one-on-one training either in person or online.
Group training packages can be sold for group training at your facility or for online group training sessions!
Exercise.com’s workout creator is particularly helpful for training and retaining traveling or online clients. With a few clicks, trainers can provide a variety of workouts to keep clients engaged and motivated while also being performed anywhere. Clients can use the messaging feature to ask trainers questions, and trainers can moderate the logged workouts. This makes it easier for busy clients to get their workouts in at a time and location that is convenient for them!
You’ll be able to embed your videos onto your platform with descriptions and customized exercises, increasing the individuality of your fitness brand, making your niche that much more sophisticated in the industry, which sets your business apart from the rest.
Exercise.com’s workout customization options include:
- Workout Plan Creator
- Smart Delivery
- Custom Exercise Library
- Easily Embed Your Videos into Your Platform
- Your Descriptions, Workouts, etc
Cast videos onto gym television screens with Exercise.com’s workout software during group classes or one-on-one training sessions for added engagement and a personal touch when training clients or groups.
Clients with Exercise.com can purchase products like workouts or programs without you having to lift a finger, but you’ll always have to be involved in some way with Schedulicity’s system.
What does this mean for e-commerce?
You can use your app to sell workouts online to clients who may never meet face-to-face. However, online training can also be a great upsell for gyms with clients who are churning because your custom-branded app empowers you to train anyone, for any scenario, anywhere in the world.
Schedulicity and Exercise.com both have Stripe and Square integrations available, but business owners must also be aware of high transaction fees. As entrepreneurs, third party compliance, credit card transaction fees, and monthly limits on the number of transactions will cap out or be costly on systems like Schedulicity if you have high traffic with clients.
You’ll have to go in and set reoccurring appointments with Schedulicity, while customers working with Exercise.com software using businesses get to manage their profiles on their own. Another key factor that Schedulicity misses is payments, as you’ll have to finish processing payments from your office.
On Schedulicity’s payment and automation system:
“I wish my clients could go to their Schedulicity account and pay from there to my office.”
“The only thing I don’t like is that a client can’t go in and make reoccurring appointments.”
Exercise.com features secure third party processing options that are built for high-security protection of customer data, at a constant price, allowing you to take payments online AND in person. Using our software, you’ll also not have to pay Apple’s 30% Transaction Fee within the iPhone App.
As a business owner, you have to cover every area to make sure you’re not bleeding funds. Will Schedulicity help create passive revenue streams at no extra cost?
Here are some other ways that Exercise.com (and not Schedulicity) allows you to increase revenue:
Sell gym merchandise, sponsored products, and more with Exercise.com’s e-commerce software.
Sell Workout Plans
From sport-specific programs, like football, baseball, or hockey, to general programs like adult fitness, our e-commerce options allow you to sell workout plans to your clients no matter their location.
Offer Online Workout Memberships
Being able to offer online workout memberships means being able to broaden your reach for added revenue! With online workout memberships, exercisers across the world can access your workout plans monthly or annually.
Sell Workout Challenges
Workout challenges are a great way to build loyalty, motivate clients, create a new source of revenue, and drive new clients to your membership or workout e-commerce options.
Performance Health Software
Another function that Schedulicity does not offer is the custom performance health assessments, which are the cornerstone of setting up custom-designed workouts which will be set to grow with your clients and your Exercise.com software.
What about assessments that gather vital data on potential clients while engaging long-time gym-goers? Let’s see what Schedulicity and Exercise.com each can offer your fitness business.
With performance assessments, you can show your clients where they have improved from previous assessment data.
AMPD Performance, for example, uses a custom Exercise.com assessment to onboard their clients which also helps them to see where their clients and athletes are at physically and what specific areas they need to target for improvement. They are also able to assign future assessments to engage and gauge client and athlete progress and make smart adjustments to the programming based on smart data.
Schedulicity doesn’t offer this capability, which is actually extremely crucial to most personal training businesses, as the assessment allows you to gather the most important information you’ll have on your clients.
Performance & Measurement Reports
From onboarding potential leads and new clients to re-engagement of older clients and smart data which auto-fills your custom workouts, you’ll gain not only retention but a reputation for professionalism that gets results with the Exercise.com software application. Here is how to utilize the power of performance assessments:
- First, take potential clients through a baseline assessment to show how you can help them achieve their goals.
- Second, people often have short memories, so a client assessment in tandem with our powerful smart performance tracking empowers you to show clients where they have improved.
- Third, Exercise.com’s Performance Health Software allows you to deliver recurring assessments to re-engage clients and also provides progress photos and measurements like weight throughout their journey.
Exercise.com offers trainers the ability to send nutrition plans and track the nutrition of their clients.
For example, you could send out a nutrition plan for your client every Friday so they have time over the weekend to do their shopping and meal prep. You don’t have to worry about forgetting to send it or be at your computer to do so.

Schedulicity Software Competitors
For scheduling, Exercise.com still more than compares to the booking and appointment titan Schedulicity. Here’s a rundown of Schedulicity’s other competitors:
Now that we’ve had a look at the comprehensive features from client management, scheduling, customizations, workout delivery capabilities, and more, it’s essential we take a final overview look to make sure you have the best information to make the best decision for your fitness business.
While Schedulicity is a solid scheduling system, it does not provide the features required to manage a fitness business. Exerccise.com, however, provides the features of Schedulicity plus the features needed to run your business.
Let’s have a look at some reviews from Schedulicity users:
The number of bugs that are introduced and the absolute waste of time spent on non-sensical aesthetic icons.
I loved Schedulicity at its inception, now I see very little benefit to using it….unless you call mindless hours clicking on appointments to determine whether or not a session has been paid for each and every session for each and every client.
Another review commented on the customization and marketing aspects of Schedulicity’s software:
“That I can’t use my own graphics in the emails. The templates are nice, but very limited. I would like to also have a way to see who’s opened the marketing emails the way other programs do.”
Online booking and customized brand comment:
“What I do not like about the software is that some of my clients had issues with booking online in the past which made me want to switch softwares to something a bit more reliable. Additionally, I think that overall the excitement of the website when booking is just not there. I want clients to feel excited when they book their appointment and the website doesn’t really attract that excitement.”
Schedulicity does what you’d expect it to do: schedule. If you have additional packages or offerings, you can put those in your marketplace as well for some possible additional revenue.
If you’re the owner of a health and fitness-based business, however, you’ll want more than just your typical scheduling app, for which you could just use Google Calendar and Cash App for clients. If you want to drive business revenue, increase client retention, have access to an exercise marketplace where you can sell individual plans, run group challenges, and get the best data for your business like performance health assessments and business reporting to find opportunities for improvement, you most likely won’t find those opportunities with Schedulicity.
Exercise.com’s custom-branded web, Android and iOS software systems are designed to help your business grow while growing with you. With customization extending all the way down to the text content of your web and app, Exercise.com is built to promote your brand, your way.
