  • Opening a gym? We’ve got the perfect software for you!

    Read about our fully customizable, inclusive fitness studio management software that will drive your business into the future!

    We know how hard it can be to manage the day-to-day running of your studio, which is why we have worked hard to create an all-inclusive software that can handle everything from sales to class bookings, so you don’t have to!

    The App
    Our software is a fully integrated system that can manage all your client’s needs. Combined with this, the software links to a customizable app that will allow your clients to book classes with ease. You can update the timetable from the main system and in only a matter of seconds, the app will update to follow. Each client will have their individual profiles that you can also use to monitor their attendance, generate data and graphs about your gym, and help you to track your studios success.

    Gathering Data
    Understanding the inner workings of your business is the best way to make informed decisions to grow and expand- our software reports are the perfect way to help you understand what your gym needs in order to be successful. The Vivafit software allows you to gather and print reports that will help the management of your gym. From daily attendance to finances, this is an easy way to you to track your company’s progress, monthly income and expenditure, popular classes and timings, and more.

    Tracking prospects and sales
    Keeping engagement with prospects is the key to closing sales and driving your business to success. With our program, you can store information about all prospects and referrals, see how many interactions that you have had with them, and check all sales representatives targets and commissions. From here you can take the contact details of all of your members and prospects to generate email lists, and keep potential clients informed of any deals and offers.

    Customizing the software
    We’ve mentioned a few times how we can customize the program to suit your gym’s aesthetic and image. This means that you have control over what the app will look like on both Android and iPhone, using your company’s logo, imagery and color schemes. You can also customize who is granted access to what features, within your own staff. Assigning a manager on the system will allow that individual to access financial reports and data through a password protected firewall. This keeps all of your valuable information completely confidential and protected from any potential digital threats.

    Meet our first customer
    We recently helped a gym in the UAE to set up using our software. Contour Fitness Studio is a boutique fitness studio located in Abu Dhabi, who opened only 8 months ago. We were able to come in and provide a set-up of our system directly onto their reception, and do some training with their staff to help them understand the functionality of the software.
    “When we started setting up Contour Fitness Studio, there was so much to do that the idea of working with individual app developers was overwhelming. Pedro and his team were able to arrange everything from Portugal, giving us exactly what we needed to launch our company. The ability to add new classes is the most convenient thing, since we are always adding to our timetable. It also helps that we can limit the number of bookings per class, which keeps our studio safe and organized throughout the day. Our clients love having their own profiles, as it makes them feel like a part of the Contour Fitness Community. It also was a lot more cost effective to use this software, since the software comes as a full package, saving us from having to co-ordinate with different developers, and pay a lot more in individual fees.”
    - Zulekha Ahmed, owner of Contour Fitness Studio
    Our software is all about form over function. It’s now easier than ever for you to oversee every aspect of your business, plan and launch marketing initiatives and track finances- all in one space. We want you to succeed, so that we can promote healthy living all over the world.
