PTminder is a cloud based and mobile ready personal trainer software suitable for individual trainers as well as small or mid-sized gyms and training facilities. The solution help institutes to efficiently manage their front-desk operations and administrative activities including such things as member details & registrations, class booking, trainer scheduling, and payments.
With PTminder businesses can schedule and display online classes on a calendar, accessible by both trainers and members. Each member gets a personalized account to keep a track of their booking history, scheduled appointments, trainer communications, making payments and more. Members can then register and book their place for a class as per their convenience and place availability. Training facilities can create and manage a central database of member details. PTminder is capable of recording both offline and online payments allowing facilities to accept membership payments via cash, credit cards or via direct bank transfer.
With PTminder, training facilities can create customizable membership packages to cater different set of audiences. Facilities can also set up an online store to sell these membership packages, special training programs, and training equipment to their members. The solution automatically sends class reminders to both trainers and attendees to reduce no-shows and improve class attendance. Apart from these, the solution is also capable of tracking member's progress through out the entire training session. Business can also generate ad hoc reports for analyzing key trends and monitoring business progress.
PTminder users can also access every detail on their smartphones via downloading PTminder mobile app available for Android and iOS compatible smartphones.
It makes running my business so easy in terms of the admin and finances. The system handles it all. I don't have to worry about it. I can log all of my expenses in there as well which helps massively with accounting. Clients book themselves in and can see how many slots they have left from their packages - and just buy more as and when. This means I don't have to worry about any of the administration and can focus solely on giving the best group classes and personal training sessions without the burden of the admin. Clients love it too.
It's easy to use. Set up is very straightforward. Integration with existing website is also very simple. The ability for clients to book their own sessions (within available slots) is so helpful, and allowing clients to pay online and book into classes or go on a waiting list takes all of the effort out of it. Clients particularly like the email and text reminders.
The workout planner isn't as advanced as some others, and it's not quite as set up for online personal training (i.e. remote coaching) as some competitors.
I love it because it is easy to use for my small business, has most of the functionalities that I need, makes financial reports very easy to see, and plenty of ways to ensure that there are no errors for example going to Balance of clients allows me to check if I reconciled all sessions correctly and charged correctly. Which helps reduce errors in number. I have also noticed it has improved a lot in the last year, the speed of loading is better and functions work better. Super easy to navigate. Would love to see the monthly membership a little bit cheaper especially as I am a very small business with only 2 trainers at the moment. But overall, very happy, I do all my admin stuff in the program and at this point do not require any additional program to manage all the numbers and clients. Everything is in one place.
Easy to use.
Has everything that a business needs.
Easy to read financial reports.
Monthly graphs and charts are awesome visual aid of financial position. Love that I can easily jump from monthly to weekly to annually depending what data I want to compare.
Keeps you in check if you are entering numbers correctly, by being able to double check balances and see if all charges and income has been entered correctly.
Needs to be a little bit cheaper with addition of the new trainers as my trainers only use the diary and client tabs.
Thanks Olivia! Please get in touch if you need to add more trainers, we'll sort out a small discount for you :)
Love the product, defintely wouldn't be able to live without it. I talk to other personal trainers about getting this! easily access calendar from my phone on the go. Love the fact that assessment information is on my phone instantly if I need it and clients can access this through their log in portal. Like the fact that I can have active, lead and past clients. I like how you can see the earnings at a glance per month.
Would like to see in the future:
-booking unavailable time in the diary through the app right now its just sessions/classes.
-payments connection to bank account to reconcile sessions that way
-private notes to be the default for sessions or at least the option rather than workout plan
Have had a few instances where I add a prepaid payment to a client click the send receipt function and it sends that information to a random client. This has happened about 4 times now and have emailed in about it to which I've not had a response from you guys. My clients are pretty cool about this kind of thing but when it involves dollar amounts when clients are on different rates, I have a very hard time trying to explain this to them.
Easy to book in clients and hold client information
Website log in easy
I can manage my classes and clients
Snap shot of how much made Week and Year to date
Hold assessment information in once place
Private notes not the default in the sessions breakdown
Payment information connection to your bank - have to add each payment manually
Unavaliable time is hard to use (to block own training and so that clients cant book in in that time). Needs to be a 3rd session/class type of action.
I had been using PT Minder for 3 years I believe, and rate the software very highly.
It allows me to run my personal training business efficiently and professionally.
Plus points of using this software;
- easy to use, and organise your schedule
- efficient client booking system for classes and sessions
- pretty rounded financial reports and reconciliation aspects, keeping on top of what money you're making.
- good client profiling and information logging
Rooms for improvement;
- the workout planning side of things is pretty much non existent. An api should be used to link with programs such as Trainerize - a more efficient approach to client workout progress.
- links to more payment websites such as gocardless, Expensify, and potentially links to bank accounts to track invoices being received.
- a more aesthetically pleading and branded app - giving info on the classes and services we offer as trainers, therapists etc. Clients can they decide what to book based on this.
A very good software - just needs more integration with other software that is more advanced in other areas.
I have been using this software for a few months and I am happy with it although there are a couple of features that I wish were improved. For my clients who miss sessions or go on vacation, the system is a bit cumbersome to track that. I have to create an owed session code and credit the customer another session instead of the system automatically tracking it for me. For clients who go on vacation, the pause feature does not let you select your own date. The dates are based on their membership start and end dates so that also makes a bit of extra work. The system otherwise is fairly easy to use and customer service is always available although I think there may be a language barrier which makes some of the communication more time consuming to explain. But they are always very nice and helpful and do follow up if there was a question they have to research. When I first bought the service, the feature of having merchandise for sale was not available and now is so that was a great improvement. There have been other upgrades based on feedback so I know that this company is willing to grow, which is great. I am a small business (sole proprietor) so this software has been ideal for my needs.
ease of use, availability of customer service and willingness to be helpful, value for money
customer service language barrier (sometimes takes a while to explain the issue), limitations for missed sessions tracking and pausing a membership tracking
