– Custom-Branded Web & Smartphone Apps
The EZFacility app is called MemberMe+ and is customizable for businesses that use EZFacility. The logos, colors, and information are customized to match the branding of the business. The facility or organization name is used for the app so users can easily find the app in the app store that matches.
In comparison, Exercise.com offers fully customizable and branded mobile apps for our clients and can match colors, logo, and verbiage across platforms for a consistent look with websites, dashboards, and mobile apps. We also offer custom dev tools for clients.
Exercisers can view schedules, book classes, view workouts, track or highlight workouts, view and enter challenges, monitor progress toward goals, and more.
Staff and trainers can also use the app to create, plan, and deliver workouts, add exercises or notes, track progress, engage with clients, automate reminders and notifications, and more.
“For a while now, we have been looking for a great way to provide an all-encompassing experience for basketball players. The customization features of the web platform and custom-branded apps have allowed us to do that, creating the perfect marriage between our expert content and all of the really cool features that help separate us from the rest of the competition.” – Kyle Ohman, Basketball HQ
– Workout Creation and Delivery
EZFacility has no workout creation and delivery for fitness professionals or personal trainers. There is no option to create workouts, deliver workouts, or an exercise library within EZFacility, unless you pair it with another application.
There are also no nutrition goal setting or nutrition tracking features available, and EZFacility does not provide features like workout goal-setting, challenges, or leaderboards.
In comparison, Exercise.com has robust workout management features, like a workout plan creation tool, a customizable exercise library, workout logging, progress tracking, automation options, and more. Personal trainers can create and deliver custom workouts for their clients and send reminders. updates, or workout summaries automatically or as they prefer.
Exercisers can view workouts, view workout summaries, view exercise libraries, or log workouts from anywhere – home, office, or the gym. The workout options via the mobile app make workout details available 24/7 and on the go.
Exercise.com does have a multitude of features for nutrition, including rest day nutrition goals vs. training day nutrition goals, macronutrient (carbohydrates, proteins, and fats) goals, and nutrition tracking. Trainers can also upload meal plans, files, or pictures to help their clients meet their nutrition and fitness goals.
“We have athletes that can only see us every so often because they travel for tournaments or business. With that said, our custom online training platform has helped us provide better coaching solutions when our athletes are not with us. Now, we can continue to make progress when the athlete is on the road, and we can track their workouts.” – Andrew Banner, AMPD
The great news is that Exercise.com offers these workout creation and delivery features as part of our all-in-one system. No need to use a separate system or use a dashboard link to utilize different software.
– E-Commerce/Point of Sale
EZFacility allows for the selling of products, services, membership, rentals, and packages with its point-of-sale features. There are inventory management options to view product levels, manage reorders, create coupon codes or discounts, and run reports on profitability.Customers can update payment information, pay balances, purchase packages, rentals, or memberships, and register and pay for camps or clinics.
Exercise.com also has valuable e-commerce features that are helpful to managers, staff, and business owners. It includes the ability to sell memberships, training packages, individual workout plans, run workout challenges, and sell recurring membership packages.
Pair this with the workout creation and delivery features and it enables you to reach your local clients and virtual clients. You can also open up sales of customized training plans for specific goals, like a golf conditioning training package, a postpartum training plan, or a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) package.
Imagine you are a personal trainer and you created a workout plan specific for a busy on-the-go mom who only has 45 minutes after the kids are in bed to do a quick workout. Or, you created one for the business professional who travels for work but enjoys a quick workout in his hotel room in the morning.
With Exercise.com, you can sell and deliver these training plans to clients near and far and generate a new source of revenue for your business.
– Performance Assessments
There are no health performance assessment features offered with EZFacility. You would have to purchase or use a separate system to have features for performing and viewing health performance assessments.
In comparison, Exercise.com has robust performance health assessment options such as tracking measurement data, injuries, and custom assessment notes. Some of the measurements and assessments include weight, height, activity level, distance runs, power output, range of motion measurements, and others.
You are also able to track assessments using graphs and charts. Let’s say your personal trainer has set you up with a plan to help improve your 5K and 10K paces. You can complete a baseline assessment, like a 12-minute run for distance or a one-mile run, and keep that in your file. The next time you complete that assessment three months later, you can compare to your baseline.
– Fitness Business Management
EZFacility offers fitness business management features for professionals, staff, and trainers to create calendars and schedules for classes, clinics, or rentals. Staff can also integrate calendars to view schedules and enable notifications and reminders.
Customization is the key when it comes to the fitness business features of Exercise.com. You have the ability to set up calendars and schedules, send reminders to clients, view or manage workout plans, and customize and save any workout plan for clients.
For those who love tracking their workouts, you can easily send workout summaries for clients to view and track. Clients and members can look at workout summaries and performance health assessments over time to see the progression toward their fitness goals.
– Client Engagement
EZFacility has several partnerships with other companies that offer features not offered by EZFacility; features like website and marketing, text messages, workout tracking, and workout creation.
So, while you can potentially access these features, it will mean having to learn two or more additional software packages or systems, instead of having an all-in-one solution that offers all of the features. Exercise.com offers all of the features offered by EZFacility, plus many of the features that its partners offer, in one software package.
“Before I came across Exercise.com, the process I used to try and communicate a program with an athlete long distance was extremely cumbersome. I would have to save all the required videos into a folder for each day or phase to try and keep them somewhat organized. Then put all the individual folders of videos in a master folder…
Not only that, but logging and tracking their progress was not nearly as effective or efficient, if I was able to receive feedback at all. If it felt unprofessional in even putting it together to send out, I can’t imagine what it looked like to someone who wasn’t sure of what they were receiving. Those days are long gone, and I look forward to providing professional, clean, organized, and effective programs to clients for years to come.” – Chip Gosewisch, PMR Performance
Exercise.com offers the ability to engage with clients both near and far. It’s easy to engage with clients that you see at the gym regularly, but there are also options to engage with your online clients. You can send workouts, send assessment information, tips or motivational tools, and set up challenges to continually communicate with your clients.
Exercise.com offers fully customizable options within websites, mobile apps, and dashboards. These options are a beneficial way to engage with clients to help build your business, enhance your brand loyalty, and generate more revenue.
Staff, trainers, and professionals can use EZFacility to do things like set up notifications and reminders, access the management software 24/7 from any device, automate product reorder alerts, and send marketing emails or text messages to members. EZFacility uses Textmunication to deliver SMS text messages to clients for marketing purposes, client engagement and communication, reminders, and follow-ups.
Exercise.com also has useful features for automating tasks and features, and you don’t need a third-party application to send automated texts. Personal trainers, managers, and staff can automate emails, notifications, and text messages, create automatic workout delivery options, automatically deliver files, photos, videos, or notes to clients, or automate health performance assessment results or information.
“Developing an easy intake system with my apps and ways to scale the delivery of workouts has been huge. Working with 20-30 individuals who each have specific goals and restrictions can be challenging, but your platform makes it easy to organize everyone’s programs and put a plan together that will get them the best results possible.” – Dean Somerset
