Are Administration Tasks Occupying Too Much Of Your Time?

« Blog | Written by ezfacility | | (0) Comments |

Congratulations! You have achieved the dream of opening your own gym or personal training facility. Your initial marketing campaign was such a success that your membership numbers have gone through the roof and many of your fitness classes are oversubscribed. It all sounds wonderful, however, as your business grows unfortunately so does the administration and tasks. Administration tasks that can take you away from offering first class support to help your members achieve their fitness goals. It’s great to be kept busy by clients on the increase, signing up and joining classes but there is a price to pay if it all becomes too overwhelming. The wheels of progress can collapse in two ways:

1) The administration tasks become overwhelming and this results in mistakes.
– Too many clients turn up for a class due to incomplete bookings for previous clients, resulting in a double booking and therefore not enough space for everyone.
– So either you allow everyone to participate anyway – even though there are too many clients – resulting in a cramped, stressful environment. Or you have to turn away some clients even though you were meant to have booked them in – and again they’re stressed,
– Or maybe you’re letting clients in without a package by mistake so they are attending classes without sufficient monitoring. So clients end up coming to classes without paying. There was frequent rescheduling but the action wasn’t sufficiently monitored enough so the class ends up being surprisingly empty.
2) The other scenario is you’re on top of the administration tasks but it’s taking you forever and stopping you from actually leading those fitness classes or guiding your members to reach those fitness goals you helped them set when they joined your facility.

In the April edition of Gym Owner Monthly Magazine, Gym Owner of the month – Nick Pugliese from Bornefit – listed one of the main reasons for the success of his new facility is because they know their members on a personal level and create a family atmosphere within the gym that urges people to come and train.

However, it is possible to be up to date on your admin without it taking over your life while still engaging with your customers and ensuring they feel welcome at all times. If you give clients a way in which they can book their own classes or personal training sessions online, or through a mobile app, then they are in total control of scheduling themselves. Not to mention all of that time spent in administration tasks is now back on your side for however you see fit!

Using EZFacility’s self-service module or branded mobile app can get you there. Our clients can see what classes you are offering, how many spaces are available based off the maximum class numbers that you set and book into the ones that suit them. When a class is full, it’s full – no double bookings! No crammed classes!

You may be thinking how a ‘family feel’ of a facility stays intact if clients are not engaging with anyone when they are making a class reservation? Well, with the branded mobile app you can share facility information, photos and videos to keep your clients informed as well as sending “Push Notifications” to update clients about class availability, recent news, events and more. Keeping that family feeling 24/7 rather than whenever members pop in. Furthermore, you can create virtual coupons and market current promotions to your clients. What better way to keep engaged with your clients in the modern day at any given time!


The Ventriloquist, The Magician And The Right Magic For Your Business. PDF Edition

« Blog | Written by ezfacility | | (0) Comments |

The following is an EZFacility blog that was printed in the National Fitness Trade Journal Spring 2017 edition.

Manager, Director, Leader. These are some titles you’ve earned before becoming the business owner. As the business owner, you have effectively attained the right to control your business identity, and every business owner of course, should have control.

The funny thing is though, clients want control too and in today’s digital environment there are many ways to pull off the ol’ smoke and mirrors trick to keep clients happy while still guiding the identity of your business.

But this is where we should stop.

A big aspect of your business identity is its relationship with your clients. Tricks should never be an approach to any relationship not the start of an honest business. It should also never become a last resort for any matter of business because then the business identity turns into The Ventriloquist, making clients “believe they are in charge” when they’re actually the dummy, thus increasing the risk of a fallout.

Boost Client Conveniences And Business Reach With MemberMe+

« Blog | Written by ezfacility | | (0) Comments |

You’re looking to expand the reach of your business and the idea of integrating a mobile application comes to mind. Look no further. EZ Facility’s MemberMe+ can get you started in building upon both customer convenience and satisfaction. When was the last time you saw a client forget their coupon or membership id? With MemberMe+ you and your client can leave those bad experiences behind and step forward toward a better relationship.

Here are some of the many advantages that MemberMe+ provides.

– Virtual Incentives-

The ability to send digital offers and promotions allow convenience for your customers constantly on the move. We improvised upon this method by giving the client the ability to accept offers in real time, taking that “Yes” directly to a calendar for scheduling asap!

– GPS Functionality-

Location is one of the most valuable assets for social media and one of the fastest methods for clients to share your business and their social life. Users can “check in” with Facebook, expanding your business reach with ease.

-All-In-One Efficiency-

Your business may never move but your client is another story. They could be on their way from a new town or coming from a jetlagged flight. They could open up a separate app to find your business and then another to open your calendar… Or they could just use MemberMe+.

-Cross Compatibility-

We want the best possible level of client immersion available so along with the likes of Twitter and Facebook- MemberMe+ is available on iPhone and Android. The budget for a cross compatible app has often been known to be costly, however, when we take a look at our testimonials, the positives far outweigh the negatives.

-Registration of Member ID Cards-

Make your clients commitment easier by giving them the option to digitally store their client membership identifications. Once it’s registered, there’s simply no more time wasted looking for that small rectangular key card. (And no excuse to avoid the gym either!)


Administer the application from your computer and generate reports on user activity such as download statistics, popular features used by clients and much more. The data gathered from our app can prove to be a vital tool on upholding and improving engagement level among clients.

-Updates & Push Notifications-

Operate efficiently through an admin portal where you can change image formats, add more links and send out notices. After all, surprises are for presents, not extended hours or the opening of a second location. Keep your clients always in the know on what’s going on with your business.

-Info Customization-

Just like your website, you can include a variety of info to your clients, from contact details to an “about us” summary. Also, the customization does not stop at written text. MemberMe+ also allows the inclusion of photos, particularly helpful for biographies of your trainers and or staff.

Imagine what you can do or always wanted to do with extra time. With MemberMe+ helping your business out, you can make that extra time completely yours, and we know you deserve it.
