OneFitStop Software Review
Founded in 2012 by David Zeff and Jarron Aizen and officially launching in 2014, OneFitStop is a fitness management software platform that focuses on business management and fitness tracking.
OneFitStop offers some solid features for fitness businesses but there have been numerous complaints by clients about one of the cornerstone features — the app.
“Crashes all the time” (Google Play Store)
“This app is horrible. I really wish my gym didn’t use it. It’s the worst!! Crashes ALL the time. I have to log out & log back in every single time I want to look at the class schedule, but it crashes when I try to log in!!” (Google Play Store)
“It’s always saying loading. Doesn’t matter if I am on cellular or WiFi. Can you fix this?” (Apple Store)
In fact, the seven most recent reviews on the Apple and Google app stores combined averaged 1.3 stars out of five with every user dissatisfied with the app. As OneFitStop allows owners to have their own custom branded app, users have also shown disdain about the same issues under fitness businesses that utilize OneFitStop’s software.
This means that fitness businesses on the app stores are getting very low reviews that can wrongly reflect their business due to the inadequacies in OneFitStop’s software. When you factor this and the many features that are supposed to be done using the app, it can be hard for any fitness business owner to potentially put their business in a jeopardizing position. There are also some important software features that they lack that Exercise.com empowers you with.
OneFitStop vs Exercise.com
Operating for a decade, Exercise.com has helped businesses succeed from day one. Our all-in-one software platform is designed to easily grow and manage your business and our team is full of individuals that have been in many facets of the fitness industry. We have an advisory board comprised of some of the top fitness professionals that help us in generating features that matter. Below, we will go into more detail about our features and how they stack up against OneFitStop.
Unless otherwise stated, all images and reviews below are of/about the Exercise.com software platform.
Fitness Business Management Software
With any fitness software platform, the ability to manage different areas of your business is a must. However, not only do you want the ability to manage, you want to be able to manage easily. That is why we here at Exercise.com created our dedicated Fitness Business Management Software (FBM) that is capable of managing many key features such as schedule management for classes, members, and employees as well as workout creation and delivery, billing, notifications, and more. What makes it easy for you is that all of these functions are operated within the same web and mobile apps so there is no need for downloading or learning different applications. Below, we will compare some important management features between Exercise.com and OneFitStop.
Exercise.com and OneFitStop both allow you to track visits and book classes/sessions. You also have the ability for calendar integration with Google and Apple on both platforms. It is unclear if you can sort clients with OneFitStop as they don’t specifically say on their website. However, with Exercise.com, you can sort clients in multiple ways such as by:
The only direct explanation of facility management capability on OneFitStop’s website is forming staff reports to take care of payroll along with the ability to optimize hours and placements. However, as of the publication of this article, this feature is not available and is said to be coming soon. When looking at their pricing table they state to offer staff management as part of their higher-priced plans but they do not expand anymore. They do allow for overall reports to view the operations of your business.
Automation has the ability to put your business on autopilot which can create a seamless and efficient experience. It gives you more time to not only focus on the more important matters of your business but your everyday life. OneFitStop is able to automate messages/notifications via their app or email but does not expand on if automation is possible in other areas except for payments/memberships.
With Exercise.com you have the ability to automate many areas of your business. Our software platform allows you to:
- Automate Emails and Texts/Other Automatic Features
- Automate Workout Delivery
- Automate Resource Delivery
- Automate Assessment Delivery
- Automate Reminders/Alerts via app, text, and email
Dedicated Zapier Support
Both Exercise.com and OneFitStop allows for the integration of over 2,000 applications through Zapier. Zapier allows you to, in Zapier’s words, “Integrate (link your web apps with a few clicks, so they can share data), Automate (pass info between your apps with workflows called Zaps), and Innovate (build processes faster and get more done – no code required).
Dedicated Account Manager
At Exercise.com, we take customer service very seriously; which is why we provide our clients with a dedicated account manager to help them through every step of the process – indefinitely. If you want to redesign your website, your account manager will get it done. If you want to set up an e-commerce store, your account manager won’t blink twice. Whatever you need, our world-class dev team will come through. From the mundane to the complex, we have you covered.
Your brand can oftentimes be the first thing people see, so, having the ability for your software to reflect who you and your business are can leave a good impression on potential clients
Both Exercise.com and OneFitStop allow for custom-branded apps but OneFitStop does not allow you to have your own custom-branded website as Exercise.com does.
iOS & Android Apps
OneFitStop offers a stand-alone app for iOS and Android devices that allows clients to book, pay, and communicate to trainers. They also offer a custom-branded app with the same features for a greater price. As mentioned before, the many negative reviews about their stand-alone and custom apps leave much to be desired. Their proposed software issues have caused users to poorly rate individual businesses on the app store which is something that no fitness business owner would ever want.
Exercise.com equips you with numerous customizable options for your mobile apps with not just colors and logos but also verbiage, integrations, custom videos, and more.
As mentioned above, OneFitStop does not offer you your own custom-branded website. With Exercise.com you can have your own fully customizable website with a full range of engaging options and templates to choose from.
Features our custom websites provides include:
- SEO optimized
- Unlimited theme changes
- Built to convert visitors to leads
- Custom graphic work
- Google Certified Partner
OneFitStop claims to use firewalls and other security systems for security and PCI (Payment Card Industry) Service Provider Level 1 accredited security for card payments. They state that they do not use encryption or other technologies to ensure the secure transmission of information via the internet.

Our websites and apps are encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) security and purchases are made through Stripe which is certified as a PCI Service Provider Level 1.

- Google Analytics

Grow and manage your fitness business better with Exercise.com
Having software capable of features in workout creation, logging, and workout delivery is an advantage for any fitness business owner. Regarding workout features, OneFitStop states that you are able to create, send, and save strength and cardio programs. You can also add comments/notes, media, and links. They do not expand on any more capabilities.
With Exercise.com, you will have numerous workout features that will improve the success of your clients and your business. Our workout features truly give you the flexibility to design customized workouts for anyone.
Our workout creator/logger provides users with endless possibilities for delivering workouts, tips, and encouragement to clients in any scenario, including:
One-on-one training sessions can be customized to fit the needs of any in-person and/or online client.
Group training classes/sessions can be done in a myriad of ways but no matter if it is a sports-specific or stationary bike group, our software platform allows you to design training content for any group activity.
The internet can provide many opportunities for your business to grow and be seen. Exercise.com lets you take advantage by allowing you to design and sell online workouts and plans for in-person and/or online clients.
Creating workout plans can be a tedious process; which is why Exercise.com makes it easier by providing you with an exercise library filled with thousands of exercises. These exercises can be used to create customized workouts for your clients in addition to the custom exercises that you wish to add as well. You can easily search any type of exercise needed and each exercise comes with video demonstrations, tips, location of muscles worked, and more. This is a unique feature that OneFitStop does not have.
Exercise.com allows you to create exercises to add to the library. These exercises can be filmed anywhere and can feature you, your staff members, or anybody of your choice giving you the flexibility to create content for any circumstance.
Aside from providing clients with the ability to watch demos of the exercises you’ve sent them within their workout plans, gyms can use the exercise library as well as a great way to cast exercise demos onto gym television screens during group classes or one-on-one training sessions.
This is a great way to provide that “personal touch” so many people look for when choosing a gym.
In this modern-age, e-commerce has been and will continue to be a driving force of revenue for many fitness businesses. OneFitStop allows for the selling of packages and memberships but does not offer more e-commerce capabilities. Exercise.com offers you many e-commerce and point-of-sale options that allow you to effectively sell your content.
With OneFitStop you are able to collect payments by credit card or log manual cash payments.clients the ability to pay a one-time or recurring fee or membership with cash, check, credit card, or direct deposit, online and/or in-store. All of these payment tools can be accessed within the same custom-branded web and mobile apps you use for your clients and staff.
To date, OneFitStop does not allow you to sell products but they claim that their software will have the ability to do so soon. Withonline or in-store

Sell Workout Challenges
Another unique capability that Exercise.com possesses is the ability to create workout challenges. These challenges can not only attract new clients that are especially on online platforms but can re-engage your in-person clients as well.
Performance Health Software
There is way more to fitness than just losing calories or gaining muscle; it is about improving one’s overall health. Because of this, it is important that the software you use has features dedicated to the health of clients.
At Exercise.com, our software platform is made to help clients live healthier lives. Our Performance Health Software allows you to:
- Reengage clients through automated assessments
- Retain clients by showing progress
- Track measurement data, injuries, etc.
- Optimize the delivery of personalized workouts and nutrition
Below, we will see how OneFitStop compares when it comes to assessments, performance/measurement reports, and nutrition.
OneFitStop gives you the ability to assess clients through pre-built or custom questionnaire forms for PAR-Q or General & Medical Questions. With Exercise.com, you can perform custom assessments that can automatically trigger custom workouts based on the data acquired. These assessments can provide history, measurement data, injuries, photos/videos, and goals allowing you to specifically analyze any individual.
Performance & Measurement Reports
As part of the assessment, OneFitStop allows you to record metrics such as BMI, body fat percentage, body shape, speed, power, agility, strength, endurance, flexibility, and more. With Exercise.com you have a wide range of performance and measurement options to choose from such as weight, height, activity level, distance runs, power output, range of motion measurements, and others. Both software platforms allow you to add progress photos.

OneFitStop Software Competitors
Choosing the right software can be a crucial and difficult decision for your fitness business. However, the numerous capabilities that Exercise.com offers make this decision easy.
OneFitStop offers some good features that can be useful for fitness businesses but these features are of no use if they don’t work. Hard-working fitness business owners are getting 1-star reviews on the app stores because of OneFitStop’s software implications.
