Basic class booking abilities for clients to self-book into classes with timeslots for classes or group training within Trainerize
I need basic class booking where clients can browse class time table for the business and grab a spot directly in Trainerize without needing another gym management app.
I have one membership type that allows access to all class or small group training spots. I also do not need trainer commission payout calculations or salary calculations.
For advanced class booking where you need commissioning or splitting class types by membership etc. , please vote here:
Hi everyone, we've begun to work on Basic Class Booking!
We'll update this page accordingly as the project progresses.

Really looking forward to this feature, it would help so much with using external software to book!

Currently looking for another app specifically for this feature. Would be great if we got this added asap
Crystal Trace commented
This would be soooooooo helpful for me and my business!!!
Brett Douglas commented
This will be the next level! Please allow this to happen, only thing Trainerize has to do to take over the live virtual group training realm!
Ronnie Walsh commented
This is the key to helping me sync everything in one place. Please make it happen TZ

The feature for clients to self book is really handy but it would make it so much easier if there was a way for self booking in a group training appointment
Nikki Auckland commented
Ohhhh yes please!! I am just about to sign up with another app (ive had Trainerize for 5 years now and it's only missing this option along with meal plans).. I would be stoked it it happened asap!!

This would completely change the game for Trainerize & it would become the ultimate software for Gym Owners to create the ultimate user experience for members
Currently paying for an incredibly over-priced Booking Software to collect payments & manage memberships... which barely gets used & is forgotten about, as my members are far more familiar with using Trainerize for their workouts, coaching & programs (but can never book anything)
Integrating this Group Booking Feature will immediately remove the hassle for members, admin & staff to needlessly navigate between 2 Apps & will take Trainerize to a whole new level
PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN 😍

Can we vote daily for feedback of this nature? Id be keen on a system that allows clients to book in and out when it suits them. They already know their trainers will be there regardless and it allows us as trainers to plan for more timeslots or workout space if our current classes get booked out, in turn, creating more leads, in turn more income for you as an develepor.

This needs to get going ASAP this will be easier for both the trainer and the clients for the more it will help the clients to take action for their own class and it's another way for clients to be engaged

This needs to be added ASAP! Currently we need TWO apps and booking systems, and Acuity just isn't designed for this kind of stuff.
The best app I've found is PunchPass, but it's SUPER expensive, not to mention MindBody, GymMaster, and other gym management which is even MORE expensive and not designed for smaller gyms and Personal Trainers.
I would recommend Trainerize to add a class booking feature system like PunchPass, where clients can:
- see the schedule of classes
- see their membership and which classes are included in it
- see which classes/sessions they have scheduled
- get notifications when their sessions are coming up
- buy a once off class pass if their membership does not cover a certain type of class
- buy a 10x pass (or we choose how many sessions we want to give in a package)
- we can choose the type of session, whether it's a group class (with a certain number of people or unlimited people) or a private personal training session.
- Recurring bookings for ongoing PT's.
- Schedule recurring online classes and have option for in person classes too.
- Integration with Zoom so zoom meetings are automatically scheduled
- When clients book a session, they get an automated email that sends them details and the zoom link if it's online.
I would pay Trainerize more for a feature like this.
It could just be added to the current system that they have now with the session bookings. They have made a good start with this calendar session booking feature, but for it to be really useable, to replace alternative apps and to save trainers time, it needs to be improved and a core focus of future updates.
I'm very surprised this feature hasn't been voted on more. But I think it's because so many people have resigned to using multiple apps.
Recurring classes are a HUGE thing in the fitness industry and there are so many apps dedicated to doing just this (especially now that Covid has forced so many classes to go online). I've done LOADS of research on finding an app that does both online training and class booking really well and there is NONE out there that does both.
Trainerize is awesome at delivering online training packages, but the class booking sucks.
PTMinder is great with class booking but the online training has much to be desired.
ClassPass and PunchPass are great with class bookings but don't do online training at all.
And soooo many more and more and more popping up every year.
Trainerize has a good head start on all of these other PT apps popping up as is in another market to the BIG gym systems. If Trainerize can get this feature working well, I think it will save trainers SO much time and money, AND allow trainers to open up more training options for their clients.

considering ditching Trainerize for Exercise.com simply because of this feature....
Gabby Goodbrand commented
I teach group fitness classes and would like to be able to create an appointment/event in the calendar so clients can book into the group fitness themselves rather than me inviting/adding them.
Ronnie Walsh commented
This is badly needed. Fully bookable classes. The software is there with the appointment booking so you allow customization of this for owners to put classes on the calendar. We use Glofox. Very straightforward but I don’t want my clients to have to use two apps all the time.
Coach Joe commented
Clients can schedule appointments while trainers can limit how many clients can attend.
Designed for in studio classes
Kirsty Holmes commented
Yes! The ability to book in for class time slots would be incredible! I currently pay for a whole other system to only use their class booking as well as Trainerize. This makes it messy for clients and myself and it would be so much more professional straight in TZ
Kelly Fisher commented
If you had classes I would switch. The idea of 2 software programs is not really an option for a small business owner. Way too messy! It's not even the cost to be honest. I was ready to pay for the 2, but when thinking about financials and bookings all over the place it would be an administrative nightmare.
Let me know when you add this and I will cancel my current sub and switch.
Jamie D commented
Class Schedules would be awesome - maybe even multiple locations...
Also the billing would have to be able to sell product on its own... without sending an invoice.

Ability for clients to book into classes with timeslots for classes
Chris Shaffer commented
I would love to get rid of my overpriced class booking software and not have to use two systems to conduct business.
