    We needed client management software for our martial arts gym; I switched to MA on Rails based on the recommendation of another gym owner. The author has been incredibly responsive about small changes we needed. Overall, it does what we need well and with a simple, clean interface.

    Pros

    It is simple to use and handles all our needs (managing clients, gym shop sales, attendance, scheduling). It's very flexible about types of membership options, from drop-ins to monthly. I like that the clients can access their own account. It has good tracking for attendance, bill paying, lets us freeze clients when needed. It also has a basic web-site.

    Cons

    The attendance check-in is a bit confusing when you have multiple classes running.

    So far so great! Very few complaints/frustrations from members during transition as opposed to previous softwares used like zenplanner etc... where every step was met with crashing apps and the like. Here we have a program that works right in every smartphone/computer’s browser. Just log in and access everything, including remote training videos, which right now are crucial.

    Would love to see some more features surrounding support for remote training, but considering the relative “newness” of the product and how great everything else has been for myself and my students - a solid A-!

    Pros

    Easy setup (BIG)
    Automated Payment Processing
    Easy “on the fly” changes
    Beautiful schedule for website
    Booking and checkins
    Built in waivers/agreements/forms
    Developer is constantly listening to users and giving feedback as to why software functions the way it does or when features will be ready and DELIVERS

    Cons

    Lack of robust reporting
    Lack of configurable signup menu (users see a long list that you can’t organize by category, yet)
    A lot of functionality seems to leverage and almost depend on you using the built-in website builder, so if you have your own website, it might feel limiting

    It’s ok. Easy enough to use but I’m used to using Spark and I feel like some of the features are lacking. For the price, I’ll stick around for now.

    Pros

    Mostly easy to use once you figure it out.

    Cons

    1) You can’t send out waivers to multiple people at once. Would be nice if you could have them fill out the waivers without having to individually assign them to each person.

    2)Wish there was a more detailed way to sort through leads, students etc. for example using tags for things like events, or to separate different types of leads etc.

    We have only used this for a month and haven’t even quite started using the full functioning yet so there may be more later.

    Spark Membership

    Reasons for Switching to Gymdesk

    I really wanted to use Spark Membership but chose not to based on their pricing.

    Response from Gymdesk

    Thanks for reviewing us Sharla! We're sorry to hear you did not have the best experience with our software. There is an option to assign documents to members in bulk, using our bulk member operations, and there's plenty of filters you can use for the leads, including custom fields you can add. We'd be happy to help you utilize the software to the fullest extent - please reach out to our support and we'd help you get set up!

    It’s cuts down tons on paperwork and allows the use of a card for recurring monthly payments. Those are huge. We also keep attendance and rank in this and it helps tons as well. I was skeptical at first but will say that we highly enjoy its function.

    Pros

    Best customer support around!
    Very streamline and easy to use
    Ever evolving with input from customers
    Less paperwork, mass emailing, just great in all areas.
    Fair priced

    Cons

    - sometimes can be a little glitchy but Customer support always is right on it.

    Just a few days into getting the system operational for my gym I had many students message me saying they loved it, and how slick it looked. MAO is going to help me be even more personal with my students, and little details will no longer slip between the cracks.

    Pros

    I like how easy it is for my students to pre-book their classes, the dashboard is awesome showing me who is attending for the day's sessions, and the emailing system is one of my most liked features.

    Cons

    Any problem I thought I had with the program was actually with me. When I needed help, I messaged [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and every time he answered me back immediately. I have nothing but positives with MAO.
