Solutions

But how do you achieve profitability? It’s not a mystery: the answer is increased foot traffic to your studio. The more people that you can get in the door at your studio, the more people you’ll make happy and convince to keep coming back.

What you need is fitness studio software that works as hard for you as you do at an affordable price. You need it to be user-friendly, reliable, and easily shareable. You need fitDEGREE.

Studio Management

One of the most important pieces to running a successful barre studio is logistics. Even the most devout customers can’t come to your classes if they can’t figure out when and where they are! This is why smart scheduling is at the core of the fitDEGREE app. With fitDEGREE, your members will know exactly where and when your classes are, every time. Add seamless member check-in, an intuitive interface for you, easy billing for any business model, and visual reporting for all the metrics you care most about, and you’ve got the ultimate barre studio management software for your business.

Referral + Social Experience

So, you’re an amazing instructor and your business skills are excellent, but there’s still one problem left that all small businesses face: attracting new customers and keeping them. With fitDEGREE, we understand that some of the most important marketing for your business doesn’t even come from you. It comes from your customers and their social media experience. That’s why we offer powerful social and referral tools that help grow your reach and beat out the competition. Through fitDEGREE, your members can invite their friends to attend classes, boost your attendance, and improve their own accountability. They can also share their experiences through the fitDEGREE app on popular social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

Marketing + Sales

Beyond the grassroots social media marketing tools fitDEGREE offers, we’re also dedicated to helping your business grow by boosting your existing marketing and sales strategy. Got a website? fitDEGREE helps there too. By integrating with your website, fitDEGREE makes signups a breeze. The same goes for any automated reminders and welcome emails you need to send. Want to offer physical or digital gift cards? All easily done with fitDEGREE.

The fitFam Experience

What if you already have a barre studio management software and you’re thinking of switching to fitDEGREE? First of all, good idea. Second, apps like Mindbody make you think switching will be a catastrophe. But no, that’s just wrong. In just 48 hours, with no work required from you, we’ll convert all your business and user information into fitDEGREE and even notify your customers via email about your wise choice to upgrade to our software.

What makes us different

We’re proud to provide barre studio owners with more than just your everyday fitness scheduling software app. We’re committed to offering you all the features you need and the excellent customer service you deserve at a price you can afford.

Competitive + Transparent Pricing

Apps like Mindbody can cost an arm and a leg for just the basics, and monthly rates for Mindbody can reach as high as $350 before any of the other 5,000 things they charge you for. That doesn’t seem right. But then other apps that cost $50 are just glorified, electronic clipboards, and offer practically nothing valuable to your business. Hmm, that doesn’t seem right either. But with fitDEGREE, monthly pricing starts at $100. And for just $200 a month, you get your own branded app!  Even at our $200 monthly rate, that’s still less than half of what you pay for a branded app with apps like Minbody. And that’s before we start to talk about fee structures..

So let’s talk fee structures, shall we? While apps like Mindbody may include HUNDREDS of different hidden fees and bizarre billing contingencies, we believe in honesty and transparency. Ready for our rates? Pretty simple: 2.75% + 30 cents for card swipe or 2.9% + 30 cents for credit key (think mobile or website pay) and then $20 for chargebacks and retrievals. Yep, that’s it. No attorneys required to translate the fine print. No end of month surprise bills.

The fitFAM Experience


as a part of fitDEGREE, you’re a member of our fitFAM. We care about your success and make your business our first priority. Yes, there are cheaper softwares out there, but they don’t come close to offering the quality of service you get with us. Ever taken an issue up with your fitness scheduling software, only to find you’re talking to AI? As part of the fitFAM, you gain access to your own living, breathing personal customer care representative. A real, live person. Not a robot.

As we mentioned, the 48-hour conversion process to fitDEGREE is a piece of cake. Once you’re part of the fitFAM, you’re treated like family, and we protect your privacy accordingly. We’re partnered with trusted companies like AWS, Trilio, and Paytrix to keep your privacy safe and your information secured.

Social features

Welcome to the 21st century where nothing actually exists if you can’t find it on the internet. Fortunately, fitDEGREE makes existing—and thriving—on the internet possible. With fitDEGREE’s social features, your members can meet new friends, connect with you personally, find what classes they want to attend, and, most importantly, help bring others to class. Other apps like Mindbody don’t offer these features, and we’re proud to provide you with this powerful tool for your business.

Unlike the way large gyms treat their customers, you understand that your members are like your family, and with fitDEGREE’s social features, you can form your fitness brand into a legitimate community. We’re here to help you grow your barre studio into a family that you’ll be proud of.

These days, exercise and great fitness are valued as status symbols, so help your members brag about that great condition they’ve achieved through their hard work at your studio. With fitDEGREE, your members can post about the amazing class they just got out of through Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter. For you, that’s free advertising. With fitDEGREE, your members can invite non-members to class right through the app, too!

Let’s talk about fitDEGREE’s…

Pricing

Are there any discounts for new businesses?

Yes! We want to support new businesses entering the industry and provide them a 3 month, 50% off discount.

 

New businesses are defined as a business that is just opening and does not currently have a management software in place.

Pricing

What other costs can be associated with fitDEGREE?

fitDEGREE itself has a two type pricing model. Branded apps are $300 a month and non-branded apps are $150. These are the costs associated with running your business via fitDEGREE.

Pricing

What is the Monthly Fee?

$150 for the ability to use fitDEGREE software (with all of its management features!) and a $150 monthly add on for a branded app.

 

fitDEGREE App Total =  $150 Monthly Fee

Branded App Total = $300 Monthly Fee

Pricing

Is there a Setup Fee?

Yes. There is a one-time setup fee for the 45 Day Trial Management Software. For the fitDEGREE experience you will pay a setup fee of $150. If you are having a branded app created there is an additional $150 charged for the app setup fee.

 

fitDEGREE App Total = $150 Setup Fee

Branded App Total = $300 Setup Fee

Pricing

What are the payment processing fees?

fitDEGREE processing payments via the merchant processor Payrix. We offer competitive rates of 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction on credit cards (typed or swiped) and a flat $0.50 fee for ACH payments.

Process

Can I upgrade my plan later on?

Yes!!!!! Upgrading from fitDEGREE to branded app is very simple! All that would be required of you would be an app setup fee,providing our team with your branded app information, and announcing to your clients that you have made the switch! Once you switch over nothing changes for you or your clients! Your admin will become branded. Your clients will use the same login on your branded app. Your business will carry on as usual.

Process

What additional costs outside of fitDEGREE should I consider while transitioning?

Something to consider is the costs of any additional integrations you utilize as well as your payment processing.  

Payment processing occurs per transaction on fitDEGREE and can be calculated as 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction on credit cards(typed or swiped) and a flat $0.50 fee for ACH payments. 

Integrations though are up to you. Additional associated costs with running your business via fitDEGREE would depend for example on what emailing platform you choose to integrate. So be sure as you plan your transition to consider the costs of fitDEGREE, the costs of payment processing, and the costs of any integrations you feel you cannot live without

Process

When will I need to pay for a data transfer?

When transferring over packs and memberships it is important that your clients have a client ID associated with them during the import process that we can use to connect their credit card, packs, and memberships to them. If you’re unable to work with our automation tool by having client IDs, then the cost associated with a manual data transfer for client pricing options is …

  • 1 to 250clients = $100
  • 251 to 500clients= $200
  • 501 to 750clients= $300
  • 751 to 1,000clients= $400
  • 1,001+clients = $500
Process

What’s included in the free data transfer?

fitDEGREE includes the transferring of your client list, your packs, and your memberships as a free service. fitDEGREE will also include credit card information transfer as a free service when entering the software.

Process

What is the typical onboarding process?

The typical journey is 3 sessions of 45 minutes or less each. Session 1, your initial on boarding, your goal is to begin putting your business model into the software with your Onboarding Specialist. Often you spend most of your time in Setup building your class and pricing model. In session 2, your follow up, the Onboarding Specialist will open with any questions you have from your work in the Admin and then close out the educational process helping you discover discounts, reporting, client accounts, and how to process sales. In session 3 you will then talk strategy. Our team will provide you with templates for your launch for your clients, your team, and your social media!

 

The goal is for you to have a minimum of 3 calls and leave the process feeling well organized and ready to take on the transition process!

Process

Will I have help getting set up?

Yes, Yes, Yes! Our team is here to help you in any way we can! So … What do we offer you? As you kick off your fitDEGREE journey you will get 3 dedicated sessions with a member of our on boarding team. In these sessions you will have an initial on boarding, a follow up, and a launch strategy call. Now, we fully understand that no process is the same, so if you need additional time and check in between calls, no sweat! We can do that!

Process

If I wanted to get started today, how long until I am up and running?

We would love to have a simple X days or weeks answer to this, but the truth is that every process is different. So let’s break it down.

A typical launch into a non-branded app can happen within 3 sessions. It is most often seen that these sessions are spread over 3 weeks, but you can also speed it up by doing multiple in a week if your schedule allows for this.

A branded app launch though is contingent upon not only completion of 3 calls but also app creation. Our team always strives to have apps out by mid-month. Apps are created within the first week of the month and then approved by their app stores and then the studio can go live.

Another reason a launch might move slower is if you request credit card data from your current software. This is a longer process which can take 2-3 weeks, so always consider this as well when planning your transition.

Something else to consider is the complexity of your setup or personal schedule. Some clients can kick off after 3, 45 minute sessions, and others have additional checkins between their calls because they did not have as much time per day or week to dedicate to getting their business model into the admin.

The truth is, you can go as fast or as slow as your schedule allows with added constraints of 1) a branded app creation timeline, and 2) any requested data being needed from your current software.

Process

What does customer support look like?

Our support team might be small, but it is mighty! Support for us is all-hands-on-deck. Monday through Friday you can count on a team member monitoring the support channel between 9am-5pm. Our team also performs weekend check ins but places priority on tickets which require more immediate attention.  

On any given day you can contact us via email at support@fitdegree.com or pre-schedule a support video chat with the team at https://calendly.com/fitdegree/support 

You can also contact our team members by phone, but we recommend email and pre-scheduled video calls for best service. Why? Because our team can provide the additional visual aids and clarification via these methods that we feel phone conversations tend to lack.

Benefits

Do you “Grandfather” clients in?

Yes. You can currently note that all original fitDEGREE clients have their original pricing honored and that will not change.

Benefits

How many members can I have in your system?

Unlimited. Enough said.

Benefits

Do I really get all of your features for $150 per month?

Yes. We do not believe in preventing clients from the use of features and using them as a tool to make more money. We work so that you all can stay in business, and we want to make sure you have all the tools you need and want for a simple pricing model.

Benefits

Are you able to transfer any data from my existing system?

You certainly can! When coming over from another software you can transfer over your client list, your credit card data, your packs, and your memberships.  

Something to keep in mind though is your current software provider might have a several hundred dollar charge in order to obtain your credit card information. We recommend you investigate this prior to deciding if this is something you wish to transfer over as it is a larger financial commitment.

Benefits

Do you offer a branded app?

Yes! Within fitDEGREE there are two options, you can go for the branded app or you can utilize the fitDEGREE app. Two choices, two prices. It’s that simple.

 

Now you may be thinking, what is being held from me if I don’t go branded. The answer is again simple. Nothing. All fitDEGREE clients have access to all fitDEGREE features. Branded app clients though get a more White Labeled feel to their experience on the software. Their app is branded. Their admin is branded. Their experience is that of their own brand.

Business

What’s up with this Private Facebook?

fitDEGREE has an exclusive Facebook page for our studio owner clients. Here they can open discussions with each other or with our staff! Additionally, we provide educational resources on this page and updates on what’s happening in the fitFam business and community side of things!

Business

Do you have a Podcast?

Yes! Our team hosts fitSpot Guru! A podcast dedicated to continuing education for studio owners who use our platform! Check it out here - https://www.fitdegree.com/podcast

Business

Working with a newer business, how do you help studios adjust to change?

fitDEGREE is constantly growing and adapting to industry and client needs. We could never be where we are today without feedback and we continue to see it as a core component to our business. As a result, change can be expected. It might mean new features or it might mean a facelift for the admin. No matter what this “change” means, our team is always here to help studio owners adjust.

When we launch an update we always provide announcements to our client base letting them know what the update was for and if it has any additional functional or aesthetic changes to our admin platform. Our team prides itself on communication and clarity so there are a few things we do to assist clients with change.

  1. Provide clients with videos describing any changes or new features
  2. Send out software updates to admin accounts
  3. Create educational resources via YouTube Videos and Podcast episodes
  4. Offer one on one video support calls to help clients adjust and learn
Business

Why do studio owners choose fitDEGREE?

If you ask a client who has made the choice fresh they will tell you ease of use. If you ask a client who has freshly launched onto the platform they will tell you support. If you ask a client who has been here for years they will tell you because they have put their business on autopilot and can count on us to continue supporting them with fresh product education and opportunities to earn $$$ via our referral program, bi-annual referral competition, and yearly business grant.

Every stage of the journey will tell you a fresh reason that they switched or why they choose to stay on our platform. We could tell you more about this, or you could ask them yourself!  

Before making any business decision it is a good idea to find references, and the same goes for software! Feel free to ask our team for references or reach out to other local studios on our platform and ask them “Why fitDEGREE?”.

Business

How long has fitDEGREE been around?

Not many know this but fitDEGREE didn't actually start out as a management software for fitness studios! In 2015 fitDEGREE was originally founded as an app to help college students find a fitness partner on their college campus. Later on, the founding team pivoted to management software while still staying true to their core in making fitness a social experience.
