I have been searching for all-in-one professional personal training software including fitness/workout builder, scheduling, payment invoicing, mobile apps, etc. and in my search really only found amSTATZ, PT Distinction, PT Enhance, and after some digging, Virtuagym. I think Virtuagym looks awesome (it also includes a nutrition diary and food database app) and would be the best fit for me, but I have had a hard time finding any reviews for them from actual fitness professionals. Again, Virtuagym seems great, but I am looking at being locked in for 12 months if I decide to go forward with them, and want to be sure other pros are happy with it. Thank you for your help!
P.S. I have been using Trainerize (which only encompasses workout and fitness tracking features) and have tried amSTATZ, which didn’t work that well for me, and am ready for something else.
I quite liked the look of Virtuagym as it seems to offer so much. However I have a few real concerns about it.
1) Why do they try so hard to tie you in to a 12 month contract? This seems to me like they can’t get people to voluntarily stay as members once they sign up which leads me to think that it is not as good as it sounds.
2) They sell online training themselves to the public. This seems like they will be my competition so it is not in their interests to help trainers build their own successful online training businesses.
3) As you mentioned there don’t seem to be many reviews from Trainers saying anything good about them. I found this really good review site which Virtuagym clearly have a paid listing on but at the point of writing this they don’t actually have any reviews http://www.capterra.com/personal-trainer-software/
I might be reading to much in to all of this but it doesn’t add up to me, shame because it sounds like it should be very good.
