FitogramPro Software Review
FitogramPro is the product of a combination of two different companies. The idea for the first company, Fitogram, was introduced by Francois Cassanova in 2012. While searching for different fitness offerings, he came up with the idea to develop a search engine that could be used by people who wanted to find a place to do sports. His initial goal was to encourage movement and make fitness more accessible to people.
Around this same time, Andreas Rudischhauser was working on a software program that would help his mother manage her booming yoga business. As he worked, he wondered if other studio owners might be facing the same problems, and from this thought, Coursika was born.
The following year, Cassanova and Rudishhauser met at a start-up business convention and quickly realized how their two ideas could work together. The product of their collaboration became FitogramPro.
Today, FitogramPro’s goal is to ease the lives of fitness professionals so they can spend more time focusing on their clients rather than being stuck in administrative work. The company specifically highlights its online booking and customer management features, noting that they help save time and increase revenue. Some customers, however, do not necessarily agree.

FitogramPro vs Exercise.com
FitogramPro and Exercise.com are both used for boutique studios and gyms who want help with organizing and managing their business. Both companies have elements in their software that do this successfully, but Exercise.com can help your business more in the long-term because our software focuses on growth in addition to managing your current needs.
One way that Exercise.com makes sure it can help you accommodate your growth is by making our software fully customizable. This is something that FitogramPro does not do. When your software can be changed to meet your specific needs, you can be sure that your software will be able to adapt as your business changes with growth.
There are also some features included in Exercise.com’s software that FitogramPro does not include. We will get into the details of these features as we go along, but they include workout software, performance health software, and elements of e-commerce software. Let’s begin to look more closely.
Unless otherwise stated, all images and reviews below are of/about Exercise.com’s All-In-One Fitness Business Management software platform.
Fitness Business Management Software
Exercise.com is an all-in-one fitness business software, meaning that you can manage all aspects of your business from one place rather than utilizing third-party apps to accomplish all the things you need. You can manage schedules, run reports, update your website, and integrate with other programs all through Exercise.com. Our software is fully-customizable so that it can contain whatever you need in order to efficiently and successfully run your gym.
FitogramPro contains some important elements of fitness business management software, but they cannot be customized to fit your specific needs. Using software that is one-size-fits-all is like using a friend’s shoes to go running; you might be able to complete your run, but it could be less efficient and more painful than using shoes you bought specifically for yourself.
Both software companies provide a platform for scheduling classes and clients. FitogramPro requires integration with an existing website in order for your customers to be able to view your schedule and book appointments.
With Exercise.com, everything is all in one place. We built your website for you, so we make sure that it is automatically updated whenever you make changes to your schedule. Your schedules can be sorted by the studio, instructor, trainer, class modality, day, time, fee, or any other category you choose. Your clients can also book their spot and pay for services in the same place.
Proper facility management is done by having information available that helps you make day-to-day and overall decisions. Exercise.com provides you with this information through custom reports. We do not choose the report for you. Instead, we give you the opportunity to choose the information you feel is important. We then develop a report that shows you everything you want to know in order to make business decisions.
FitogramPro also offers reporting features, however, they are not customized for you. They have certain types of reports already built-in to their software so, when you go to make a decision, you have to base it off of the information they think you need rather than what you want to know.
FitogramPro appears to offer one automated feature in its software. Members of facilities that use FitogramPro can put their names on a waiting list for a class if it is full. When members farther up on the list drop out, members on the waiting list are automatically notified if they move up or have moved into the class roster.
At Exercise.com, we want to make your life much easier than one automation. So many different features of our software can be automated so that you and your employees save time, but still deliver great service to your members. A few of our features include:
- Automatic Emails and Texts
- Automate Workout Delivery
- Automate Resource Delivery
- Automate Assessment Delivery
- Automate Reminders/Alerts via app, text, and email
Dedicated Zapier Support
We want you to be successful, which is why we already provide you with a plethora of integrations to keep all your management tools in one place. We realize, however, that sometimes you might be comfortable with a certain platform that is not already integrated into our software. For these purposes, we have partnered with Zapier to perform outside integrations.
Zapier has over 2,000 apps to choose from so you can be sure that you can continue utilizing your most useful tools from one place. Our partnership with Zapier allows you to integrate your web apps so they can share data with just a few clicks, automate the passing of information between your apps, and innovate faster processes so you can get more done.
Dedicated Account Manager
Customer service is very important to us. We want you to be satisfied with every aspect of our service and product, which is why we assign a dedicated account manager to all of our customers. Your manager stays with you through every step of the process throughout your entire partnership with Exercise.com.
If you want to redesign your website, your account manager will get it done. If you want to promote your brand and sell products through an e-commerce store, your account manager won’t blink twice about setting it up. Whatever you need can be easily accomplished by our world-class development team.
Customized software is one of the biggest draws for Exercise.com users. Having software that can be designed to meet every one of your needs is the ultimate managerial tool. When you use our software, you can customize both function and design so that it is truly yours. We also include custom-built apps and websites for no added cost to our customers.
FitogramPro does not make mention of any customizable features in its software. Some of the following aspects might be included in part of their platform, but it is important to note that they are not customized.
Your brand is the visual representation of what you want your customers to know about your business. This includes things like your logo, color scheme, and pictures of your facility. The idea is for your brand to tell your customers what they need to know without them having to ask.
Exercise.com wants to help you promote your brand throughout our software. From logo placement to color designs, you can customize our software to have the look and feel you want to express to your members.
iOS & Android Apps
FitogramPro does not provide its customers with a custom app, or any app, but they do provide an integration with the Urban Sports Club app. Through this integration, members can book a spot in classes at your facility. It does, however, cost an additional fee in order to utilize the integration with Urban Sports Club.
In contrast, Exercise.com saves you time and hassle by building an app for you. This app is customized with your brand and also built to function in a way that best serves your business. Your app comes at no additional cost. We simply want to set you up for success.
Much like an app, FitogramPro does not provide its customers with a website, let alone a customized one. Instead, their software integrates with an existing website to perform its function.
Again, Exercise.com wants to make things easier. We provide you with a customized website, at no additional fee, so that your business can display all the information that potential customers want to see. Our websites are:
- SEO optimized
- Unlimited theme changes
- Built to convert visitors to leads
- Custom graphic work
- Google Certified Partner
Exercise.com wants you to feel comfortable and know that your information is safe and secure. We assume that this is also how you feel about the information of your customers. For these reasons, we’ve made security a priority in our software. Some of the features include:
- SSL Secure
- Privacy Shield Framework
- Google Cloud
FitogramPro is built for the management of gyms and studios rather than for their growth, so marketing does not play a big part in what they offer with their software.
Exercise.com, on the other hand, wants to see your business succeed through growth, and marketing is certainly helpful in the growth process. We offer many integrations with marketing platforms to help you promote your business and the services you offer.
Some of our more popular integrations include:
- Google Analytics
- Facebook Pixel
Grow and manage your fitness business better with Exercise.com
As a fitness business owner, you want your business to have the ability to deliver unique products and services to your members so that they see the value of your facility. Using software that has a workout platform, like Exercise.com, you can add new services or add new elements to existing ones so that your business stands out from its competitors.
FitogramPro does not include any workout platform in its software, so the following few sections will focus solely on Exercise.com.
Your trainers can use Exercise.com’s software to create workouts that can be given to their in-person clients or used as part of workout-based products, which we will get into later. The workouts created are easy to follow and also provide an area for clients to log their workouts so they can follow their progress over time. When clients can see their progress, they are likely to continue using your services. This is great for your revenue and a big part of your long-term growth and success.
Our workout creator/logger provides users with endless possibilities for delivering workouts, tips, and encouragement to clients in any scenario, including:
One-on-one personal training is a big part of many successful gyms because of the large revenue stream it provides. Since it is a part of so many facilities, growing this department comes down to putting out a better product than your competitors. By using Exercise.com’s workout creator and logger, your clients can have access to their workout prior to the start of their session and then log their results when it is done.
This helps keep clients more engaged in their fitness journey because it is about more than just the 30 or 60 minutes they spend with their trainer. They can continue to focus on their fitness because they have a platform to do so within the software.
Group training with Exercise.com’s software allows for all the same benefits that individual clients receive but allows for clients to work out with their friends or family for extra motivation. Everyone involved in the group session can still view and track their workouts whether they are physically there with a trainer or simply completing a workout as a group.
Online training is no longer a new wave in the fitness industry. It has built a foundation and is here to stay, which is why it is so important for your gym to be able to provide this option to members. Our workout creator and logger makes this easy. Your trainers can create and schedule workouts and automatically send alerts to their clients when a new workout is ready. Once the client logs the information, the trainer can also be automatically notified and can help keep track of that clients progress.
Trainers and clients can also easily communicate through our software so that instructions are clear and the client is on a good path to success.
An exercise library is essential for making the best use of a workout creator. Exercise.com provides our users with an archive of pre-built exercises that you can use to provide instruction to your clients within the workouts you create for them. It is simple to search for exercises by name or muscle group, within our library, and equally as easy to put them into a workout.
If you want to add a more personal touch to your workouts, Exercise.com also provides a way for you to use custom exercises.
The service is called “personal” training for a reason; your clients establish a connection with their trainer. The trust they build with their trainer is the foundation of willingly following a program. When a client is watching a video demonstration of an exercise, he or she is more likely to be confident in the effectiveness of the exercise and overall workout if it is his or her trainer giving the demonstration. To capitalize on this, you can use our software to upload your own custom videos.
Facilities that specialize in a certain area of fitness will find our custom exercise option especially beneficial if the exercises they use are not in our pre-built library.
The ability to watch video demonstrations of exercises is very beneficial for people following a program, but your facility can also use these videos in another way. They can be cast onto a TV screen during a training session or group fitness class so that participants can see the proper form at all times. This also allows some extra flexibility for trainers and instructors as they cue because they can continually refer to the video to display form.
FitogramPro is not exactly set up for e-commerce, although it does have walk-up sales and billing capabilities within its software. Users can list products in the point of sale system and then take payment by cash, card, or transfer.
Exercise.com allows customers to sell products and services through e-commerce. This gives your business another chance to earn revenue and it also gives your members easier access to the products and services you sell. Not only can you sell physical items but, because of our workout software, you can also sell workout-related items.
Using Stripe, Exercise.com is able to safely and securely accept payments both for a walk-up sale and through an e-commerce platform. Your customers can purchase products through your website, using our software, or you can make the sale in-person. You are able to collect payments for personal training, group fitness classes, monthly membership dues, or combine everything into one simplified invoice.
Selling products is a great way to promote your brand and it is easy to do with our e-commerce platform. You can sell clothing items, water bottles, sweat towels, or anything else you choose to help get your brand out to the public. Not only can you sell products, but you can also sell training plans like these:
Sell Workout Plans
There are tons of resources out there for people who want to purchase workout plans. You want to make sure your members are spending their money on your gym rather than another fitness business. By selling workout plans, you are offering a product to those people who do not necessarily want to work with a trainer directly, but still want professional guidance.
A great thing about selling workout plans is that you can truly offer something for everyone. You can have workouts ranging from a focus on bodybuilding to a focus on running, depending on your members. Whatever you choose, you know you’ll be offering products that are applicable to your members and that can be purchased over and over again after an initial time investment.
Offer Online Workout Memberships
Online workout memberships are a great step up for members who have been consistently purchasing your pre-built workout plans, or for those members that want a training plan to follow that helps them avoid a plateau. Membership would include pre-built workouts being delivered at regular intervals and payment being received on a recurring basis.
Sell Workout Challenges
Challenges are a great way to bring your members together as a community. Strong gyms are built on strong communities, so that can be helpful for the long-term health of your business. It is also a great way to increase your revenue because you can sell entry into these challenges for a fee. You can also give away another one of your services, as a prize, which helps showcase more of what your facility has to offer.
Performance Health Software
As we mentioned earlier in this article, your clients are most likely to continue using your services when they see results. Exercise.com’s performance health software is ideal for assessing a client’s current fitness level and then delivering results, through a report, as they re-assess at a later date.
FitogramPro does not offer a platform for assessments or measurement reports in its software. Their intention is more on the management of the facility rather than client success, so they have chosen not to include these features.
When trying to figure out the best way to achieve a goal, it is important to be aware of where your client is starting out. Delivering an assessment to new members or current members looking to start a new program is a great way to do this. You can customize the assessment to be applicable to any goal, which makes the information more valuable than if the same tests were used for every person.
Performance & Measurement Reports
As information is gathered through follow-up assessments, you want to be able to deliver the information to your clients so they have a clear idea of how they have progressed since they first started. Exercise.com’s performance and measurement reports do just that. You can combine these with the automation features we have so that measurements, progress pictures, and other metrics can automatically be delivered in an easy-to-read report for your clients.
Nutrition is an important part of any fitness goal, so we have made sure to include a tracker in our Exercise.com software. Your clients can keep track of their food and water intake so they know how their nutrition and workout plans are working together to help them reach their goals.
FitogramPro Software Pricing
The saying goes, “You get what you pay for,” and FitogramPro seems to live up to this phrase. Its software is free to use but, as we’ve pointed out, there are quite a few missing features and nothing is customizable to your business. It is also important to point out that, while the software itself is free, partnership with the Urban Sports Club app costs around $31.00 per month (converted from Euros).
FitogramPro Software Competitors
Listed below are a few of FitogramPro’s main competitors, along with their pricing information. The prices listed in this table are accurate at the time of writing this article.
Overall, the comparison between FitogramPro and Exercise.com comes down to the main function of the software. FitogramPro uses more cookie-cut software to help gyms organize and manage their facility, whereas Exercise.com uses fully-customized software that focuses on management, growth, and long-term success all in one place.
We hope to have shown that Exercise.com is the right choice for your business because of the fact that it is built specifically for your business. In fairness to the comparison, let’s do one final recap.
FitogramPro is lacking many of the functions that would help a fitness business to grow and thrive over the years. They have no workout software to speak of, which means that there is no way to sell any type of workout product and it does not allow for as easy of communication between staff and clients.
Along with that, there is no performance health software to help clients and participants see how they are progressing over time. We’ve established that seeing progress is important for clients to want to continue using your services, so the inability to show this is a potential liability for any fitness business.
FitogramPro also has no customizable features, which means that your business looks the same as any other business using this software. In an industry that has an option at every corner, you need to make sure you have a business that stands out. It is certainly hard to stand out when you look the same as other businesses.
Finally, customers of FitogramPro have to go through a third-party in order to have an app and a website. This not only takes away any type of an all-in-one format, but it means paying extra money and making your business run less efficiently.
Exercise.com meets your needs now and in the future by providing you with software that is customizable to whatever you need, whenever you need it. We can adapt your software, if the industry or your business changes, so you can be sure it will always function in the most suitable way for your facility.
Our workout creator and logger allows for your trainers and clients to make the most out of their programming and also adds to the products and services you can provide. Our e-commerce platform pairs well with our workout creator/logger so you can offer pre-built workouts, workouts memberships, and workout challenges for sale on your website.
We build a custom app and website for your business so you can be sure to stand out among the crowd of other gyms in your area. Your brand will shine as your logo and color schemes are displayed just how you want them to be. Both the app and website are also very user friendly for your members so that they can easily book classes, pay bills, or make purchases.
Finally, all Exercise.com, customers have a dedicated account manager to be with them through any change they may need to make throughout the entirety of the business process.
Overall, Exercise.com is the right choice for your business because we want to work with you, in partnership, to help your business to be successful. We are dedicated to your success and we provide all the tools you need to grow and thrive as long as you keep your doors open.
