Glofox is a gym and studio management and app solution, designed to cater to the unique needs of gyms, fitness, yoga and pilates studios. The solution helps gym and studio owners improve admin tasks such as class scheduling, member management, billing, reporting and check-in.

Glofox allows gym and studio owners to drive bookings through a dedicated Member App on iOS and Android devices. Members can book and pay for classes, courses, appointments and memberships through a mobile app and a website portal. The same portal can be connected to the social media pages, so members can book and pay straight from the social media accounts. The solution helps users keep track of schedules, memberships, bookings and payments.

Glofox provides a reporting feature that helps users review key metrics such as membership sales, attendance rates and failed payments. Users can also keep their members engaged and inform them of changes through app notifications and messages. Pricing is per month and paid quarterly.

Run your business in the palm of your hands!

Pros

I don't have to be at the gym to handle all the business part of life. I can do it at the beach!

Cons

If you don't take your time to look through all the options it can be difficult to navigate through it.

Amazing Membership Management System

Pros

Super easy to use and the app associated makes its great for our members (booking classes, check push notifications from us, and paying for services).
Support are awesome, our account manager is the man, always ready to help us through any problems or questions.

Cons

Like any new software system, just takes getting used to, but other than that nothing that bad. Support team are amazing and help you through it all.

I May Be the Wrong Guy to Ask

Although I've invested little time in becoming more proficient, the support provided by my representative, has been good.

Pros

I like most that it keeps track of my appointments. Specifically, how many sessions a client has left and when clients' memberships expire. That being said, creating and selling memberships, including charging, is a fantastic feature.

Cons

Although I find it a little confusing at times, e.g., creating a membership, class, or course, admittedly, I've invested little time in becoming proficient in this.

Glofox for Gym Users

Pros

Easy to use
Easy to set up classes, courses etc
Easy to see all members in one place
Communicate to all users

Cons

would like to see better reports
For maybe there be an option to have like a clock in key ring or card for members to use when enter the gym
and option to have this on tablet for members to check themselves into class, as a lot of time is wasted on this manually

I'm a big fan

Loved it. It was fun dealing with the team and the software is a doddle.

Pros

It's simple, streamlined and integrates well with the app.

Cons

Oh there are a few mismatches between the web and the app (non-branded) and the lack of ioS for GloFox Pro however I am confident these things will get ironed out.

A breath of fresh air

I actually believe that their after sales service would be as good as their caring "sales" experience because even though support team knew it wouldn't work for me he still really helped me, and took the time to work out what I wanted to see if they could do what I needed in the future and pointed me in the right direction, companies like this are few and far between, I WANT to work with them! I'm a raving fan even though they can't help my weird business model!! x

Pros

After contacting 18 CRM companies (and getting robot responses) Glofox was immaculate! support team truly took the time to understand my business and was so honest and helpful, can't rate them highly enough

Cons

It doesn't fit with my business at the moment (I'm a tricky customer) but hell, if it did, I'd be with them 100%....I really rate them

GLOFOX is the new GO TO

I would really recommend Glofox for anyone interested in bringing booking systems online to their gym etc. We love it and our members find it so handy to use.

Pros

Glofox is easy to use & the webinars are brilliant help to getting set up! Been using it in our gym the past few months and we've had zero issues. Any query I had, I was replied to ASAP which was great.

Cons

tbh i've no cons about this app. Glofox is so easy to use and I would recommend to anyone asking about it.

Happy we made the switch!

We spent a long time researching different studio software options and Glofox has definitely helped us make big technological strides forward from the app to check in kiosk capabilities. Though the retail aspects are second tier, these aren't our top priorities either at the moment. Would definitely recommend trying the demo and exploring Glofox to other yoga studios.

Pros

The interface for both our staff and students has been far more intuitive and easy to use than our last program. The reporting is clear and the app has inspired more online bookings for classes. Check in is starting to run more smoothly giving our teachers more time to focus on class and less time dealing with frustrations with a clunky system at the desk. The way the system is set up also allows individuals to navigate it in different ways that make the most personal sense to them rather than forcing everyone to learn the exact same steps. Customer service has been very attentive and responsive as we've made the transition to Glofox which is much appreciated. We have felt supported through the whole process so far. The more we learn about the program the more customized we've made it to our needs which has been great.

Cons

The only cons so far are minor tech capabilities we're hoping to see evolve soon. You can only sell one retail item at a time, though there are some work arounds. We would also like to be able to check our teachers and staff into class and sell them retail items without creating separate student profiles. In the grand scheme of operations these are small details that haven't derailed us and we look forward to seeing upcoming changes with the program.

Good product

Great product and would recommend to a friend.

Pros

Makes running my gym alot easier. And the customer support (Adam) has been very helpful and understanding with it.

Cons

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this product. Sometimes there is issues with the app but I feel they are just some small glitches and seem to get fixed within the day.

Great for small fitness centers

Glofox is simple and easy to use. If you have questions their support team is fast and are able to help with any issues.

Pros

The app on the phone so I am able to track attendance and emails letting me know who has signed up for what class is awesome.

Cons

When there is an issues for instance with the app it could take till an update to be fixed. There are no other cons.

So far so good, easy to use and easy to communicate with the support staff.

Pros

Easy to use. Fast check out process. Easy to build a profile for clients and generate payments. Much more user friendly when compared to other products on the market.

Cons

So far no major problems. Occasional glitch on the integration end when uploading our POS from our website.

The support team have been absolutely brilliant and made the transition so easy.

Pros

The ability to see revenue and also to be able to see what payouts are on the way to my bank. It just helps with managing the business so much better.

Cons

I would like to be able to have a section where the client can view their fitness details and the ability to sell online content.

Amazing Customer Experience

Pros

This is the first review I've ever written for a software I didn't purchase. I worked with the Glofox team to work through whether or not we could utilize the Glofox software for our mobile corporate wellness company - a very different use than the software is intended! While we had too many needs that were outside the normal functionality of the software, support team was amazing thinking partner in brainstorming ways we could make the service fit our needs. We also got to explore and get hands-on with the interface, and as a previous client of Mindbody, I was blown away by not only the aesthetics, but the functionality of their product for gyms/studios. If I were to open a brick-and-mortar, this would be the software I would use.

Cons

We did not fully utilize the software, so I can't say exactly. For our needs (not standard) we would have loved to see calendar sync and reminder emails.

How complicated became simple, finally we have a system that helps us generate business!

Pros

This software is customer friendly. It's layout is simple to use and once you understand the functions it's super fast which has meant staff training time is reduced as well as client training also.
I have all the key information I need to hand and when reconciling month end figures and performance it has over halved the time taken and improved the accuracy of reporting 100%.
The staff at Glofox have been fantastic from start all the way to support once we have launched. Marko was our project coordinator and his help and guidance has made the whole transfer feel seemless. The support staff are fast and really great at helping sort any queries we may have. The connection with stripe is working really well and has actually massively helped our cash flow as opposed to confusing direct debit charges and payment frequency's.
I'm yet to establish something wrong with this system and if we identify any areas that need adjusting the team at Glofox already seem ahead of the game.
The web integration is the easiest I've seen, having used mindbody previously I was astounded as to how simple this is, we can share direct links, you tube videos etc.

Cons

We are nearly and Month an Half into our full launch and as of yet I can't find anything I don't like about it.

Fantastic management software and a fantastic team as well.

Pros

It's easy to use, set up, and there is a great support team in place. The software allows me to focus more on training and less on making sure money is going where it needs.

Cons

There have been a few small drawbacks on lack of functions, like the ability to select individuals or groups for push notifications, but overall there haven't been any big issues so far.

Glowfox ahould have 6 stars not 5. Their customer service & professionalism is their main strength.

Pros

The software is extremely easy to use. A child could run your company! The interface that the customers see is direct and easy to follow. This reduces my time of answering questions. The app mails me if anyone missed a payment and makes it very easy identify who has paid and when.

Cons

My only problem is not with the app, it's with Stripe. Sometimes the money takes up to 7 days to hit my account but again nothing to do with GloFox

Some stumbles to begin with but now they meet and exceed expectations

Pros

Ease of use for members and administrators. Members can intuitively and comfortably figure out how to use the app. It provides our members with an equitable way to sign-up for free classes while also cancelling. The app continues to improve with each passing month

Cons

More data review options for administrators to analyze . Unable to build as many profiles around who is attending the classes. More filter options needed.

Partnering with Glofox has been the single best decision we have made in our business.

Pros

We made the mistake of trying to manage our own CRM when we launched our gym. Within 4 weeks of opening we realized this was a huge mistake. We considered many platforms and software company partners to improve our efficiency. The Glofox integrated platform for booking, communication, CRM and payments has given our customers a fantastic experience, interface and reliability when booking and paying. For us it saves us countless hours each week, works efficiently on the go, in the gym and literally on the studio floor whilst coaching. Every technology has an occasion gremlin but if so any problem is quickly remedied by their great team, who work as hard for you, as you do for your own customers.

Cons

Our own company branded Glofox app, the most expensive solution, did take slightly longer than we hoped to get finished, only a few days late, mainly because of Apple app store slowness but it was worth the wait in the end.
