Pros

We love everything about gymaster, it is cost effective, user friendly and the support is great.
Overall experience with Gymmaster is great and i would recommend it to other users that need a software program for their fitness facilities. Its a great program for member base collection.
The service provided during the data migration was outstanding and the ongoing help desk support is excellent.

Pros

Their cloud-based software is both easy to use and has sophisticated functionality that helps us run our multi-purpose health & tennis club effortlessly.
We have found Club Automation software to be all that we needed. Their implementation team & support have been superb.
Our fitness facility has nearly 10,000 members and this provides a fast, effective way to not only sign-up new members, but create a good environment for current members to utilize.

Cons

My only complaint would be that the with everything you get it doesn’t come with the door strike.
Seem to have regular faults and errors across all areas of the software.
Option settings are extensive and sometimes difficult to comprehend the full impact of the change.

Cons

Members have been charged inaccurate prices and the company replies that they have no idea why it’s happening. Members are also not charged at all.
The software is -extremely- buggy. This causes a lot of frustration for our members and reflects poorly on the club.
Club Automation is denying our gym to transfer service away from their software company based on a contract we signed that was falsely presented.

Be the Master of your Gym!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Would recommend to anyone managing their own gym! Great way to keep in touch with clients and have full access to all areas of your gym. The mobile access is nice as well!

Pros

Mobile Control Payment Integration Never used the 24/7 Access, but the feature is nice! Customer Support was responsive! Easy to use interface

Cons

Enjoyed using GymMaster for our club in St Joe.

Vendor response

Hi Thomas, thank you for the great review. We are thrilled you find the system easy to use as we do try to make GymMaster as user friendly as possible for both our clients and your members. All the best for a great 2019

It is fine. I would like to see an option for being able to track childcare at the club as well.

Pros

I like the ability to print reports that can show us how the members are utilizing the club.

Cons

I do not think there is enough information collected in the billing section.

Vendor response

Hi Veronica, thanks for taking the time to leave us this feedback! We do have options to tailor the questions or data required from members on sign-up, and we also have clients who run childcare through the system. So we may have existing options available to help you there. We'd love to help tailor your system to meet your requirements above, but will need a bit more detail to understand what you're needing. Please feel free to reach out to support and they'll do everything they can! Thanks again

I am really liking the features & reports & how easy the system is to set up to suit our needs

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Was a bit unsure of how the changes would affect what we do. Finding the ease of setup & adjusting or adding anything to the system is great. The Staff have taken to using it really well, very intuitive once you see what is inside each tab etc

Cons

I don't know where everything is to modify - frustrated to get the club setup - but I keep fiddling & looking at everything & playing to see what happens

Vendor response

Hi Rachel, Thank you for this review! If you need any more assistance getting around the software then please feel free to book in training! Looking forward to working with you more.

Awesome Club Management Software - especially if you have a 24/7 club

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

I have used other Club Management Software at my facility in the past and I have done a lot of trials/demos of other software. GymMaster really is the best available - in my opinion. If you own a club, you owe it to yourself to do a demo. Door access system is super reliable and has lots of great features (such as Tailgating recognition) to help you manage 24/7 access. Developers are very good...

Simply the BEST

We spent 4 months negotiating and going back forth on which club software company we should go with and landed between ABC and Motionsoft. We landed on Motionsoft...big mistake. After getting everything ready and setting up our Pre-Sales office for our newest location in late December ready for the January crowd...we were told that they could not have people signup online as we discussed and they could...

Thanks Jeff for the feedback, it has been our pleasure to be a partner with Athletic Apex. We particularly enjoyed the opportunity we had to visit your Florida site location assisting in the initial GymMaster setup, seeing such an uncompromising health club concept in person was a rewarding and eye opening experience for us.
