If you are a new business or are thinking about making the switch to a new software, don't hesitate! Make the change now. You will be so glad you did!

Pros

Ease of use! This is the most user friendly comprehensive software program available. We have been in business for over 17 years at the time this review is written and during that time we have tried and tested many other programs to function our yoga studio. Hands-down Wellness living is the best! Once you switch you never look back. Their customer support is amazing and actually get back to you. It's super easy to integrate into your current website with easy to use widgets. Their apps are wonderful, I can take my business on the road and to festivals. And the best part - our clients love it too!

Cons

There is nothing that wellness living needs to do make their program better. Every time they make changes I am shocked at how amazing the upgrades are! It is a wonderful system to use!

I signed up the first week of January, March 22 they told me it would be another month.

Pros

the product looked good but after 3 months of being pushed back to go live we decided to go a different direction for our 2 music schools

Cons

the on boarding staff never was upfront and honest on how long the process was going to be to switch from MB to WL.

Hi Eric! Thank you for your feedback. We are so sorry to hear that you were frustrated with the Onboarding process. Although we are able to merge multiple MindBody accounts, this is is a very unique request that takes significant preparation on our side. Looking at your history with us, we ran real tests in the background to get you the most accurate timeline and communicated it to you as soon as we knew. We pride ourselves in having an industry-leading migration process, and although we identified challenges with your particular migration, we were, and still are, ready and willing to work through the process. If you change your mind and want to give us another chance, reach out to 888-668-7728. We'd be happy to get you going so you can take advantage of all the features WellnessLiving has to offer, not to mention the cost savings!

Using this software makes me feel like I'm a beta tester and loses me business.

I haven't used any other online schedulers, so I can't compare. I've heard so many nightmare stories about MBO that I wanted to avoid using them, but now I'm feeling like I'll need to make the switch or try someone else as soon as my contract with WL is up.

Pros

The interface looked nice and it appeared to have good features at rates competitive to Mindbody Online.

Cons

The software is incredibly buggy. For example, I have the link for my group class schedule on my website, but when a client clicks on it, if they have already used Wellness Living at a previous studio in the past, then it may take them to the other studio's Wellness Living. I have no control over this on my end and no way of knowing when I'm losing business because someone tried to book with my studio and got redirected. I've been told that this bug was fixed, but it is still happening.

There are countless things like this—we call their tech support several times a week with similar bugs. Tech support is very friendly, but often difficult to get a hold of (presumably because everyone else is also calling them about bugs like this). When I do get a hold of them it is frequently difficult to get them to understand the problem. I've been told repeatedly that a bug is fixed, only to have the same thing happen the following week. Frequently these bugs are things like what I've described above—problems with basic functionality that seem like they should have been caught before a public release. I feel like I'm being sold a beta-quality product at a very high cost.

Great idea, not ready for release

Value for Money

Pros

Great looking interface, innovative marketing tools. While it's more expensive than Pike13, it isn't nearly as pricey as Mindbody.

Cons

First of all, I hope to edit this review and leave more positive comments as WL addresses problems. My business has about 500 clients and two locations. We've been trying a number of software solutions, including Mindbody and Pike13 in detail for almost a year. WL is by far the most buggy. I feel like a beta tester. One example: Clients can't enter their birthday on the iPhone custom enterprise app. If you make birthday required, as we did, the client can't get past the registration screen to book classes. This is a simple, small bug, should have been caught even before a beta but it has cost me real money. More bugs: Gift cards aren't getting sent out. The way room schedules are dealt with doesn't make any sense. Appointment requests show up randomly. If a client is registered at another WellnessLiving business it's difficult or impossible to log out of that business and into your business. Their support website is incomplete and doesn't reflect the current version of their software. Specifically this article: https://www.wellnessliving.com/knowledge-sharing/knowledge-base/automatically-booking-assets/ and this article: https://www.wellnessliving.com/knowledge-sharing/knowledge-base/cancelling-repeating-appointments/ show available options that do not actually exist in the software.

A deal breaker for some: It's almost unusable on mobile and there's no staff app. When I signed up they said the staff app would be released by end of 2017. Now they've said the BETA will be released "sometime in Q1". If I'm using their production software I don't want to know what their beta looks like.

The worst part is that I'm having to convince their support team that I'm even having issues. When I found the birthday bug on the app they sent me a video of an android phone with the birthday working and said "look! it works!" I had to send a video of my iPhone with the birthday not working before they finally said "Ohhhh, we get it, it's an iPhone bug".

It doesn't seem like they do any ongoing bug testing and it doesn't seem like their support staff knows all that much about the software. I've downloaded a screen capture app just so I can share my issues with WL with their support team.

So why am I still using it? It's got nice design, and some elements work really well with my business. I'm hopeful these problems are just issues with the software being relatively new and they'll address my concerns. I'm worried that these issues are systemic. Right now it's hard to trust them. I haven't even migrated the majority of my clients over because of these and other issues.

So I used this program while helping a friend set up his business... it's making a unique dent in a new industry. Many users aren't tech savvy in their businesses so this helps out with that

Cons

There are many things that can be fixed - for example I feel that customer service can be improved in terms of timely responses, also to mention the need for perhaps using beta test sites before launching them out to all the clients.

Since making the switch from Mindbody, we've been running more efficiently than ever before!

Pros

I used to use Mindbody, but after switching to WellnessLiving, I haven't looked back once! Not only is this far cheaper (50% the price), it's actually a better product too! The automated features of WellnessLiving save so much time and energy! From instant notifications to schedule changes, this covers it all!

Cons

I've encountered a few bugs, but after contacting customer service they were either addressed, or, more often, revealed to be user error on my part! :)

Hands down the best thing about Wellness Living is the people who work there. I could never say enough good things about my trainer!! She went over and above to ensure that I was transferred accurately from my previous company - including giving up her Saturday morning to spend 5 hours on the phone with me. She worked to be sure all accounts were in order, organize the store, update settings, showed me where to find specific reports, etc. She made sure all bases were covered as I started. The owners are equally professional and committed to their business, staff and clients. GREAT company!!!

Pros

I love the ease of use! Compared to my previous software, there are far fewer steps to execute normal tasks. The design and functional clarity gave me a lot of confidence right away. No business software could actually fall under the heading "Set it and forget it!" but this comes the closest!

Cons

I can't say there is anything I like the least. It does everything I need it to do easily and clearly. Perhaps the one thing I would add would be the ability to extend sessions by dragging them down to the next 15min - otherwise I really appreciate all that it does.

Pros

Ok first off, I just opened a Pole Fitness Studio, SkyPoleFitness.com and from the DAY I started my contract with WellnessLiving they have been so helpful. I used to work for a studio and we had MindBody but they were just WAY to expensive for all the same features WL has.

This is my first studio as an owner, and I probably ask way more questions to the WL staff than I should but let me tell you, they are so responsive and helpful. They send these personalized videos to answer my questions instead of just some typed up response (I'm very visual).

Cons

There are some features they are lacking on but that's with every software company...no one company will be perfect but they have all the features that matter! Plus they are constantly improving. I can't be any happier with my decision to go with them.

The interface is completely user friendly!! Click, click, click and you’ve set up a class, a schedule, a teacher, a client. No multiple deep menus, a dashboard that is extremely well organized, no zombie classes hiding six menus down. It’s just SIMPLE to use and still has everything you need! I trialed and looked at 6 options. Hands down this is the best option both cost and user wise. The amount of time I’ve saved managing my software has given me time to grow my business and focus on more important things!!!

Cons

The full site isn’t optimized for mobile. Other than that, I haven’t had any glitches. This is so much better than Mindbody.

Fuss free, not crashing on a weekly basis or causing my clients headaches.

Pros

It's intuitive. I have everything I need in the software and it's working properly every day without 'issues' that prevent myself or my clients from booking. I cannot speak highly enough of the customer service, I reckon those guys are answering my emails in their sleep they are so quick to respond. If you're on a competing site do yourself a favour and move across. I had a slight last minute panic attack because the whole migration was massive and the thought of my clients being inconvenienced stressed me. Best thing I've done for my business was move to them. Not one regret.

Cons

I've only been using the software for a few months now but having used a competitors product for several years I knew what I would be looking for in both good and bad. This has every function I used prior and it's far easier to navigate. So in short, I actually haven't found any cons yet!

Pros

The software is easy to use and pretty user friendly for staff and clients. Since the staff app came out a few months ago our staff is much happier with the ease of checking and maintaining their schedules. There have been a few hiccups (see below), but each time I am able to reach Ry with Customer Service who goes above and beyond to resolve the issue. If he is unable to come up with a resolution, due to a software/engineering issue rather than his ability, he escalates it to the engineering team to resolve the issue or provide more explanation. I appreciate the fact that he also keeps me updated on a regular basis as to the ETA and progress on the resolution.

Cons

Although the software is easy to use, I wish the reports had more filter options especially in regards to financial detail reports and memberships. We have had some hiccups with our clients that have ongoing appointments. Some of the clients that have had the same ongoing appointment for a couple of years have had their ongoing appointment renewal skipped on a random week. It usually happens with several clients at the same time and we have clients that arrive for an appointment that is not on the books and that another client was booked into. (some ongoing clients cancel every so often so at first glance we assume that is the reason they are not on the schedule). When this first happened three months ago I was given a general email response and verbal response by two different customer service agents that we have to manually make those appointments; and it is nearly impossible to anticipate one ongoing appointment missing with almost 170 ongoing appointments each week. I spent many hours double checking our schedule weeks in advance to try and prevent another issue.
The second time the ongoing appointment error happened I dealt directly with Ry who took a look at it and could see there was an issue. He tried to come up with a resolution, but ultimately this was a software glitch and he submitted it to engineering.

Despite some issues here and there, the customer support team has been helpful in trying to fix issues and submit feature requests for engineering to develop.

None I'm switching back to Mindbody.

Pros

Nothing about this software is easy. It takes too many pages to complete even the smallest transaction.

Cons

To do any transaction takes many pages and clicks. The reports are worthless. They have no concept of what a business needs to reconcile accounts or to help with payroll. Although it is less expensive than Mindbody it cost us more time to process anything, which cost us more money.

It was a great way to keep our clients, classes and products organized. We were able to group and analyze our clients, and their needs in order to improve our marketing and help grow our business. It was easy to use, intuitive and straightforward. It did not require a great deal of training time, allowing us to focus on our clients and creating lasting relationships with them, instead of doing administrative work. We were able to establish a professional online experience/presence and give clients more confidence. We appreciated being able to store some of the most vital and important information about our business in one central spot that was accessible with the touch of a button. Clients were able to recommend us to others and ultimately Wellness Living helped us to grow our client base. We would highly recommend the software to anyone in the fitness industry.

Pros

The ease of use and customizable options make it personal and accessible for a variety of users, regardless of technical knowledge. It is a great resource for small or large businesses. Very intuitive and straightforward. We enjoyed how quick it was to set-up new clients, products and create a welcoming online experience and presence for our business. Online tech support was extremely helpful and there were no interruptions to our service for software updates or glitches. it was very reliable and a great tool to pull reports. The data reports were easy to pull and did not require time-consuming filtering and clean-up. Tracking a client's activity was easy and clear. The pre-set tools and rules for each component of the software were logical and easy to change and modify when needed. Overall it was superior to other CRMs and a pleasure to use. Our clients enjoyed being able to leave reviews and recommendations about their experiences.

Cons

As a small business, it would have been much easier to be able to link the payment processing mechanism to Square or Dream payments. We were looking forward to the reporting capabilities of Wellness Living to help us track our revenue and without having the ability to sync with these, it created a lot of manual data-entry work. This flexibility is very important for businesses that are just beginning and not in a position to pay costly monthly fees for moneris, interac or bank machines. We felt that though it was a competitive rate for this type of software, it was a large investment for us and we wished that we could have taken full advantage of all of these functions.

I don't have to use Mindbody anymore!
The customer service and integration team are awesome.

Pros

I love how it's visually appealing and how it double checks you to make sure that you WANT to do something before it lets you do it.

Cons

I don't like when you have 1 client with 2 IDs and sometimes you can find them or if you do you can't merge them.

I don't like using the texting system because the recipient can't respond. I was exciting about texting a whole class but wondered why no one confirmed.... then realized that they couldn't.

Easy to use. Great reporting features. Great automated marketing features. Love the custom app we just started with too!

Cons

So far it's been overall very good. No complaints. The transition from Mind Body to Wellness Living took about a month or so of learning curve, but Wellness Living makes it as painless as possible and provides tons of support.

Pros

Easy to use, all data was brought over from Mindbody Online, so we didn't have to do any of the heavy lifting... They are always interested in improving the software and have been very responsive whenever we come up with a new need.

Cons

Some features affecting our business were missing, but they have been rapidly adding. Automatic re-billing of failed CC or ACH transactions. 24 hour support not available yet

Was able to delegate a lot of my responsibilities to other staff members because the software was very easy to use

Pros

- Ease of use
- Well thought out functionality (everytime I am like "I wish it could...." I find that it already does!
- Constant updates and added functionality
- Helpful support staff

Cons

- Sometimes support doesn't answer the phone right away (they will return your call or email within hours, but sometimes I need to talk to someone RIGHT THEN)
- Sometimes new features are released before completely bug-free (but they fix things as soon as it is brought up)

What I like most about the software is being able to have my memberships handled every month. I like having a system to input my customers information and the email they receive.

Cons

What I like least about the software is not being able to add services by multiple people to one bill.

Pros

I love that it's an all-in-one solution for scheduling, appointment booking, staff scheduling, payroll processing, reporting, etc. The team is very responsive and support is wonderful - if you ever have a question, they answer promptly and do their best to help.
With the onboarding team, is hands down the most helpful, responsive, kindest and most patient rep I've ever had the pleasure of working with across many companies in many industries. He made a really stressful transition much less stressful and virtually held my anxious hand the whole way :) I highly recommend him (if you have the option) and would choose to work with him again in a heartbeat!

Cons

It is missing some features that I use a lot in my business, but the WL team adds our requests to their development schedule, so that's a plus. It can be slow to load sometimes, and the Staff app isn't (yet) as robust or clear as I'd like it to be but...that's just growing pains!!

Cheaper than Mindbody, definitely not better. It WAS getting better all the time, but now it's getting WORSE. Hoping for major improvements, but based on recent experience, not very hopeful.

Cheaper than Mindbody. Still not cheap. Adequate user interface (again, better than Mindbody). But no responsive design (why not?!) after 3 years. Sloooooow. But cheaper than Mindbody.

I'm updating this review because a potential deal-breaker (their waiver / self-registration system) (we've been asking for changes for 2+ years) seems to be coming to some sort of resolution / development tasks seem to finally be happening. If protection from liability / a decent waiver system is important to you, I suggest holding off until these changes have been implemented. To give you some idea of how drastically broken the system is currently:

-A parent cannot sigh a waiver for a child that exists on the parent's account / has a "child" relationship! That is to say, you are prevented from signing a waiver on behalf of a child. This makes absolutely no sense to me, and whoever designed this needs to be taken out back behind the shed.
-The waiver an adult signs will not cover any children or minors, and does not list them!
-The registration process itself is broken and requires multiple steps, a separate login, and many many many clicks across different areas of an application that new users are entirely unfamiliar with. By my count, 3 "steps" in the initial client profile creation process, then a separate login, then two more clicks to navigate to the right area, then adding additional family members one at a time, with a save in between each child profile. We've had to create our own instructions for new clients on how to do this, we frequently just do it for them, we've even created our own registration app that would accomplish this in a far more streamlined way.

Obviously, these are big liability issues for any business that uses them.

In addition, after repeated attempts to contact and discuss issues with their core functionality--location / filters not working properly, refund credits on a parent's account unavailable for children to use, and much more--stuff that was previously working fine, but is suddenly NOT, I'm forced to downgrade my review from 3 stars to 2 stars. I see no improvements, and major risks to our business with continued use of this platform.

Pros

Initially very responsive to feature requests, bug fixes, etc. Real humans you'll get to know on their support team. Very knowledgeable about their own product. They clearly care about their product and its perception.

Cons

They frequently do not understand how their product is used in the real world. Over emphasis on things like rewards programs and their partner program, which are slightly half-baked / not very feature rich / not useful for everyone. Far less responsive than they were when we first signed on, and bugs take a great while longer to get fixed. I'm currently tracking 75 bugs and 120+ feature requests on their support page that I or my staff have submitted over the last 3 years. Be prepared to hear a ton about "other clients not needing it" if you ask for a feature that is important to your business which they disagree with.

Self-registration / waiver system is utterly broken...but maybe there's hope there yet. If protection from liability isn't a concern for your business, then never mind. If it is, read on.

UPDATE 9/19/2018: They are less responsive than ever, and their QE process is actively breaking the platform. They debut software rollouts with new "features" that break basic functionality, but don't address longstanding issues.
