A Tool for Group Fitness Managers

by Ryan Halvorson on Oct 24, 2012

Making News

Group fitness managers interested in gaining insights on program management have a new free resource created by IDEA author and presenter Shannon Fable and her Web developer husband John Fable. Called GroupEx PRO, the program aims to “help eliminate the frustration felt by group fitness managers with regard to communication.”

Here are some components of GroupEx PRO:
  • sub board that assists with requesting and approving subs
  • scheduler that allows a manager to embed updated schedules directly into a fitness facility website
  • tabs for notices and announcements, discussion forums, class plans, reference materials and contact list
“As a former group fitness manager I understand the pains of communicating with a mobile workforce, especially with regard to the sub process, which can be quite a time-consuming juggling act,” says Shannon Fable. “GroupEx PRO targets these frustrations by funneling communication through a single channel, which saves countless hours of administrative work. And it puts an end to those tedious back-and-forth emails.”
