Looking for the best personal trainer software out there? You've landed in the right place!
The recent popularity of fitness blogging has caused an explosion of interest with regard to stay-at-home fitness plans and home workout routines. As such, personal trainers and fitness professionals understand that they now have to divide their efforts between training clients in the gym, and offering advice on online digital platforms in order to capitalise on a rapidly diversifying industry and audience.
This has caused some confusion for trainers who are less technologically savvy…
With the added opportunity of online personal training comes added confusion. Perhaps most importantly is the question of the best ways to access this new, burgeoning digital market?
Fortunately, a whole host of digital designers have developed a multitude of personal training software platforms. These allow personal trainers to effectively deal with their hectic workloads, without having to worry about the internal workings of coding a new website for their digital business.
There are many different examples of software improving personal trainers’ workflows in a variety of different ways.
They can help with, for example:
- Balancing schedules
- Offering workout plans to clients
- Automating marketing emails
- Improving customer retention
- Implementing payment plans
Furthermore, most new personal trainer software platforms enable trainers to employ a range of applications in tandem with each other, meaning a trainer can tailor their digital interface according to their exact requirements and needs.What we’re saying is, when it comes to finding the right software for you, you are spoilt for choice.
In fact, this might actually throw up another problem: you may find that the market is somewhat oversaturated for your personal needs. Often, it can be hard for personal trainers to choose the software that best suits their business requirements, and bigger name market leaders regularly overshadow their smaller named counterparts, even if the latter is a better option than the former.
So, to put your mind at ease, we have collected the esteemed opinions of fitness professionals from around the UK, in order to give us a definitive list of the best software options on the market.

Once they do, they will be able to take advantage of all the opportunities that the app provides.
A club manager, David Rowe said that Club Manager is:
The best thing we have purchased and for our business. Freed up our time with this software keeping all our figures and notifications of non-payers for memberships. We have purchased entry gate to work alongside this and about to add on online booking. We have used this for 6 years and still get help and on-going support.
There are three different subscription options to choose between. These include:
- CMGo – Designed for individuals who are growing their personal business (Cost starts at £25 per month).
- Standard – Designed for businesses with a larger member base, premises and teams of any size (£69 per month).

This should help you decide what is the most functional and cost-effective approach for your business.
‘Bobclass’ is a native app for the iPad and iPhone. It was designed to cover the full range of administrative tasks for the busy fitness professional: It offers an appointment calendar, payment tracking and progress note-taking through a mobile user interface. The developers boldly claim that they aim to make calendars, notepads and spreadsheets obsolete.
What makes ‘Bobclass’ stand out from the competition is that it runs a local database meaning that the app can be used even without internet connection (think gym, park, yoga studio) and changes made to client or calendar data will sync across as soon as you’re back into WIFI or 4G. This also means that the app is very fast and can be purchased in the App Store without a subscription since you are not forced to sign up to any service.
For those who work in a team or manage multiple instructors, there is a Studio version available. This is a subscription that includes multiple calendars, rosters and premium support.
Bobclass has received 4.5 stars on Capterra* and 5 stars in the UK App Store**. Typical users are solo professionals and small studios for whom MindBody and the likes are too complex or costly and prefer mobile over desktop. The founders Rob & Nigel are continuously adding new functionality and personally answer any questions you may have.
– 14,99 GBP one-time purchase in the App Store for the standard version (single instructor)
– optional 24,99 GBP subscription for ‘Bobclass’ Studio (multiple instructors)
