Fitness Pros Who Trust Exercise.com
TeamBuildr Software Review
TeamBuildr was founded in 2011 as a software program to help strength and conditioning coaches run a more effective program with their athletes. James Peters and Hewitt Tomlin are the co-founders of TeamBuildr and their headquarters are located in Landover, MD.
TeamBuildr’s main users are strength and conditioning coaches. TeamBuildr focuses on high school, collegiate, and professional strength and conditioning coaches as its niche, but is missing many features that fitness businesses and personal trainers need to run and manage a successful facility, including scheduling, billing, workout management, and automation.
Exercise.com offers an all-in-one package of features useful to fitness businesses and personal trainers. No need to have separate software for membership management, a separate system for class calendars and scheduling, and a separate system for personal trainers to build workouts. Exercise.com has all of this, plus more.
Exercise.com also has an Advisory Board & Fitness Pros to build the features that fitness business will actually use.
TeamBuildr vs Exercise.com
TeamBuildr is a web-based platform used by strength and conditioning coaches to build workouts online for athletes. This software includes a mobile app, exercise and workout templates, performance assessment features, the ability to sell training programs online, and goal setting options.
Exercise.com includes those features, PLUS additional features that are necessary to run a successful fitness or personal training business. Exercise.com not only includes features to create customized workouts but also options to deliver those workouts to clients. Clients and members can book and manage classes, view class schedules or open appointments, purchase memberships, class packages, or specialized workouts, and more.
TeamBuildr has some cool features for strength and conditioning but is lacking in overall features offered for fitness facilities and personal trainers. Those who use TeamBuildr would need additional software or systems that offer the features they are missing, which can lead to confusion and stress.
Unless otherwise stated, all images and reviews below are of/about Exercise.com’s All-In-One Fitness Business Management software platform.
Fitness Business Management Software
TeamBuildr does not offer any fitness business management features such as calendars, appointment or class bookings, etc. There are some reporting features, but they are related to athlete performance, not business management or scheduling functions.
With Exercise.com, fitness staff or management can set up calendars to show class schedules, instructor information, waitlists, and automate payments. There is a business dashboard for reporting and managers can set up staff roles and permissions.
Managers can turn features on/off for the most user-friendly experience for staff and clients. The technology team is constantly adding new features based on feedback from current users of Exercise.com.
Using Exercise.com’s software, Exercisers can book and manage classes, see waitlists, set up reminders and notifications, set up automatic payments, or pay for classes or memberships. They can view schedules by location, trainer, time, or type of class.
There are no limits to the number of clients you can manage, and you can manage the software from anywhere. There are also endless marketing integrations included with Exercise.com to help upsell to current clients or reach new clients.
Never worry about sales, staff, clients, or data logged falling between the cracks with reporting at your fingertips in your custom web and mobile apps offered by Exercise.com.
Managing a staff of any size is time-consuming but FBM saves you time with assignable staff roles, so you can put staff management on autopilot.
Plus all your reports can be run in a single software. No more safaris for which software has which reports. Exercise.com’s Fitness Business Management (FBM) software makes reports easy — sales, business, appointments, class, and payroll reports all in one place. Plus you can also 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.
You got into the business because of a love for fitness, not complicated logistical tasks, so it’s crucial to set up the efficient processes that run reliably and don’t need your constant attention. Let Exercise.com handle it!

Fitness facilities and trainers that use Exercise.com can set up workout challenges and leaderboards to help motivate and engage their members and clients.

The automation features of Exercise.com make it easy for fitness staff and trainers to stay in constant communication with clients via mobile apps, texting, or email. Payments for memberships or classes can also be automated for members so they have one less thing to remember.

iOS & Android Apps
The TeamBuildr app is available for iOS and Android devices. It can only be used by coaches and athletes who have a TeamBuildr subscription.
Within the Apple Store, the negative reviews are related to functionality for users. For example – no use of timers for rest periods, confusion about how many sets and repetitions have been completed, and some text and colors being difficult to see.
In the Google Play store, most of the recent negative reviews have been related to the app not opening or crashing. It appears that they have an update to fix the issue, but numerous users reported this problem.

TeamBuildr also allows coaches or trainers to sell their training programs online at an additional cost. For between $4 and $6 per user per month (depending on what features are desired) and a minimum of 30 users, TeamBuildr provides a minimally customized app and users will have to search for TeamBuildr in the app store to find this app.

Grow and manage your fitness business better with Exercise.com
TeamBuildr offers coaches and trainers the ability to deliver workouts to athletes, but there is no information on their website if the workouts can be automatically delivered or if it must be done manually.
Exercise.com also allows trainers or coaches to sell workouts online, but without the extra fees. There is also no required minimum of users, so you could sell to two clients or 100 clients and it is included with the other features of Exercise.com.

TeamBuildr also has an online platform for coaches and trainers to sell workouts online, including videos and nutrition information, to clients. The downside is that this comes at an additional cost of $4 to $6 per user, with a minimum of 30 users a month.
Exercise.com also has an exercise library with instructions, videos, muscles worked, and sample workouts. Trainers can also add exercise or videos for clients to view. The software includes options for goal setting, workout challenges, and customized training plans.
Exercise.com’s software provides trainers and fitness facilities with the software needed to make one-on-one training as simple and as personal as possible.

Let’s say one of your dedicated clients travels for work and cannot always meet with you to train in-person. You can develop and deliver a customized program that can be automatically delivered to your client for them to complete at your gym, a hotel gym, their home, or anywhere on the road.
TeamBuildr and Exercise.com both have exercise libraries that allow trainers to provide their clients with demo videos of the various exercises assigned.
Exercise.com’s exercise library provides users with the ability to add their own custom exercises, exercise demos, and workout videos to the library. Some workout customization options include:
- Workout Plan Creator
- Smart Delivery

- Easily Embed Your Videos into Your Platform
- Your Descriptions, Workouts, etc

TeamBuildr does not offer any e-commerce or point of sale features. The sole focus of TeamBuildr is to create and deliver workouts, not offer any e-commerce options. They do offer the option of selling workout plans online at an additional cost.
Fitness businesses that would like to increase revenue by selling memberships, packages, single classes, or workout plans would need an additional system in order to do this.

Exercise.com’s Fitness Business Management software lets you access all of your payment tools in the same custom-branded web and mobile apps, so you can spend less time tracking down failed charges, taking payments, and managing payment details and have more time for growing your business.

Sell Workout Plans
Exercise.com client Mike Boyle, of Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning (MBSC), had over 700 clients within 12 months of releasing programming online using our software!
Offer Online Workout Memberships
Cater to traveling clients, stay-at-home moms, and any other target demographic that cannot find time to go to the gym by offering online workout memberships; this way, you can attract and retain more clients and you free up space in your facility as these clients will be working out at home, in a hotel gym, or elsewhere.
Sell Workout Challenges
Workout challenges are a great way to keep clients engaged and motivated! Challenges are also a great way to attract potential gym members or clients who may be on the fence about signing up for a membership. If they are able to participate in a challenge with their friends or loved ones, they will stick to the challenge and this will give you time to sell them on a potential membership.
Performance Health Software
TeamBuildr does have performance assessment options as part of their software, including 1RM (one repetition-maximum) tracking and calculating for users. TeamBuilr also includes an option for coaches or trainers to create their own tests, but the website does not give additional information about how this is done.
TeamBuildr uses 1RM values to determine training loads and prescribed weights for the exercises. This is great for strengthening but leaves out performance assessments for cardiorespiratory fitness and flexibility, which are equally important to help athletes and exercisers meet their fitness goals.
Exercise.com offers a variety of health performance assessment features. Not only can you assess 1RM for muscular fitness, but you can also complete assessments for cardiorespiratory fitness and flexibility. You can also track other measurement data, provide questionnaires, and track injuries with Exercise.com.
With Exercise.com’s assessments, you can:
- Provide automated workout recommendations- our software can use your clients’ questionnaire responses and performance data to automatically pair them with the right program for their needs. Even clients you never meet can have a custom experience that moves them toward their specific goals.
- Improve client engagement and retention- 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. Happy clients who can see their successes are clients that stick with you for the long haul.
- Ensure clients’ long-term progress with actionable data- Performance and measurement data is only as good as your ability to put it into action in training. Our software lets you assign future recurring assessments to stay on top of client progress and make smart adjustments to programming.
Performance & Measurement Reports
Exercise.com’s Performance Health Software allows you to deliver automated assessments to re-engage clients while also providing progress photos and measurements. 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. You can put together a custom way of re-engaging clients how you deem fit.
For nutrition, Exercise.com provides trainers with the ability to set macronutrient (carbohydrates, protein, fiber, fat) goals with their clients. Clients can track their intake for trainers to view and trainers can then provide assistance to help clients meet their health and fitness goals.

TeamBuildr Software Competitors
Competitors of TeamBuildr that focus on providing features in the strength and conditioning arena include TrainHeroic, CoachMePlus, BridgeAthletic, and MaxOne.
TeamBuildr’s sole focus is on workout creation and delivery. They have several helpful features in that area but lack a number of additional features that fitness businesses would need and use to manage a successful fitness operation.
With no e-commerce features, there is no option to increase revenue by selling memberships, packages, classes, or single workouts. TeamBuildr does have an online platform for trainers and coaches to sell workouts, however, this comes at an additional cost per user and there is a minimum amount of users needed monthly.
There are also no workout management features, so a fitness facility would have to have additional software to set up a class calendar and to allow members to book and manage classes or appointments.
Exercise.com’s software platform offers many of the workout creation and delivery features that are offered by TeamBuildr, but also includes many features that are not offered by TeamBuildr. Exercise.com truly is an all-in-one software that fitness businesses can use to support all of the features needed to run a successful business.
Our software has numerous options for workout creation and delivery, e-commerce, scheduling and booking, reporting, and automation.
