I do in home personal training and sell 12 week packages mostly. People pay every eight sessions (one month), but I have a hard time keeping track. I’m looking for an app or something I can use on my computer that links with my gmail calendar where I input all of my appointments, that would notify me when the designated number of sessions are complete. Sometimes people cancel, travel or something which throws off the payment dates.
I’ve found http://www.mybeststudio.com to be very helpful for all studio owners and personal trainers. Our point of sale system and calendar tool give you save time and increase your profit.
I’ve found http://www.gympro.com to be very helpful – it links to iCal and Google calendar, which I use on a daily basis!
http://www.FitSW.com really has helped improve my personal training sessions. My client’s love being able to track their weights and exercises and it makes things a lot easier than using the yellow cards my gym used to use. It is a quick signup, completely free (I tried a few on the list but then they limit features and charge a lot to use the pro version). FitSW.com provides online tools like workout tracking & organizing, goal/body measurement progress tracking (in very nice easy to read graphs), diet plan creation, allows you to provide demo videos for your clients and includes a scheduling system. Its made my job much easier and you can’t beat the fact that it is Free.
