Make the most of your time, optimize your classes, and motivate your clients
Make the most of your time
It is becoming more common for people to hire a personal trainer to help them achieve their fitness goals. With a growing client list, scheduling training sessions can start to be as time consuming as conducting the sessions themselves.
With online scheduling, your clients will be able to make bookings anytime they wish, making you accessible without forcing you to be tied to phone or email. Clients can choose between multiple event types and book multiple sessions in one go. Additionally, if you charge a fee for your sessions, payment integration allows you to accept payment for your sessions as an integral part of the booking process.
Your customers will be impressed with how easy it is to book with you and you will be able to focus on your clients rather than organizing your schedule.
Optimize fitness classes
Offering fitness classes is a great way to train multiple clients simultaneously. The challenge with classes is ensuring they are not overcrowded or empty due to no-shows.
With group sessions, you can set the number of available spots for the classes you offer. You can set different capacities for different classes, and charge a fee based on the number of clients in your class. For example, you can charge one fee for an intimate two-person class and a discounted fee for a 10-person class.
Once capacity is reached, the class will be closed for more sign ups. If someonecancels or reschedules, the spot will be immediately freed up for another participant. This ensures that your classes have an optimal number of attendees, allowing you to provide an ideal experience for clients.
Motivate your clients
Motivation is a key factor when it comes to working out. As a trainer, you want to ensure you are providing the necessary motivation at every customer touchpoint.
One way to encourage clients is to send them SMS reminders leading up to their session. You can send up to three reminders, as well as a follow-up to congratulate them on a great workout. The content of reminders is completely customizable, allowing you to provide the optimal message to motivate clients.
ScheduleOnce also allows you to provide motivation during the scheduling process itself. You can fully customize the text on your booking pages to provide encouraging messages to your clients. Additionally, you can create custom themes to add a background photo and customize the coloring on your page. This helps you encourage clients, ultimately increasing your booking rates.
Allow for schedule changes
Your time is valuable and you want to ensure that you are making every minute count. This means you do not want to waste any time dealing with schedule changes or finding yourself with a free hour when a client does not show up.
With ScheduleOnce, clients will be able to easily cancel or reschedule their sessions according to policies you define. If you charge a fee, you can also determine a reschedule fee and a refund policy. Providing your customers with an easy way to make schedule changes can save you time and help you reduce no shows.
In the event of a schedule change, you are instantly notified and the time slot is immediately freed up for new bookings. Last minute openings can be easily filled, helping you make the most of your time.
