A Stronger Core: More PushPress Features to Help Level Up Your Gym
Beyond the basics, PushPress Core has a variety of options to save you time and increase gym revenue. Here are five features to explore today!

When it comes to running your gym, bells and whistles are often pretty cool. As long as you make sure you don’t skip the basics. PushPress Core will give you everything you need to start and grow your fitness business.

We recently showed you six ways Core helps your gym, saving you time and guiding your growth. But we believe things like invoicing and scheduling should be table stakes for gym management software. As gym owners ourselves, our goal is finding ways to make your life easier. We’re in the trenches with you daily. And it’s in our ethos to help other gym owners succeed.

Starting a gym and growing
PushPress Core gives you all the tools you need for starting and growing your fitness business.

Today, we’re going beyond the basics to highlight five other tools in PushPress Core that you might not be aware of. Or if you’ve explored Core in the past, take another look. This past year has yielded some powerful new upgrades. Let’s go!

Five PushPress Core Features to Explore.

1. Accommodates Memberships and Drop-Ins with Ease.

PushPress Landing Pages are a game-changer for improving the client experience. Landing Pages can be created for everything from membership plans to free trials and drop-in visits. Each has a unique URL for easy sharing.

Here’s how it works: Let’s say someone is visiting from out of town and wants to drop in at your gym. By linking to the landing page from your website, they can get signed up with just a few clicks before they even show up. Alternatively, visitors can scan a QR code when they arrive at your gym, alleviating the need to search for a website or get a coach’s help.

Not only can they reserve the class, but pay and sign the waiver in advance. This takes the workload off coaches at the start of class. Once they’re signed up, you’ll receive a notification that a visitor has registered, and can communicate as you’d like.

2. Increase Revenue with Product Sales in the Staff App.

Recently, the PushPress team launched a significant upgrade to the Staff App, including Product Sales, focused on three major benefits for you as a gym owner.

First, increasing gym revenue is the obvious goal. Sell more products, make more money! Second, you can decrease the workload for your team so they can focus on other responsibilities. Either set the PushPress Staff App to kiosk mode on any tablet for members to grab products and ring themselves up, or coaches can sell products with the app from anywhere in the gym.

Members can use the Staff App in Kiosk Mode to make purchases quickly and easily.

The final benefit is improving the member experience. Not only do you want to create a quick and easy process for them, but it should also be well thought-out and professional. In addition to selling more gym merchandise, any simplified part of the member experience will make them love your business even more.

One more thing: The upgrade also included the introduction of a pin system. This means members no longer have to remember their password to login to the app. Instead, they simply punch in the pin associated with their account to check out.

Fun Fact: Since the launch of Product Sales in the Staff App on February 1st, PushPress gyms have generated more than $500,000 in product revenue!

3. Save Money With ACH Payments and Flex Fees.

Oftentimes, gym owners aren’t aware that there’s another option for processing payments besides credit cards. With PushPress Core, ACH payments can be processed through members’ bank accounts. The fee is generally less than one percent, compared to around three percent or more with credit cards. Ultimately, this means the more payments you normally process, the more you can save.

Further, PushPress recently introduced Flex Fees, helping you apply customizable transaction fees. In short, we wanted to find a way for gym owners to recoup some, or all, of your processing fees. And yes, the entire fee goes to your gym. PushPress does not take a cut. We know it can go a long way toward anything from keeping your doors open to offsetting some of your operating expenses.

4. Make Better Business Decisions with Data from PushPress Reports.

At PushPress, we understand that data is one of those necessary - although not necessarily fun - elements of running your gym. We know you need the key gym metrics, and that they should be easy to access and understand. After all, how do you grow your business if you don’t know what’s working and what’s not?

With PushPress Core, it’s quick and easy to acquire and interpret accurate reports for any time period. For example, let’s say you want to better understand your ARM (average revenue per member). Or you want an overview of all your revenue streams. Core reporting will show you the current snapshot, as well as how you’re trending compared to other time frames. Plus, for the spreadsheet lovers out there, Core allows you to export reports in various formats.

Reporting features allow gym owners to analyze current data and compare it to other time frames.

5. Sync Calendars for Better Planning.

Inquiring minds want to know, how many calendars is too many? When it comes to simplifying your schedule, less is more. That’s why the PushPress Staff App lets you sync up your Google calendar. Reduce redundancies or overlaps, and get a full snapshot of your week.

In Summary: PushPress Core Offers More.

When it comes to effective gym management software, things like invoicing and scheduling are table stakes. From there, it’s all about the extra features that can help you run your gym better, and grow. PushPress Core offers a variety of helpful tools to level up your gym management.

Landing Pages, reporting and calendar syncing are a good place to start. Then explore revenue-related options like the Product Sales feature, ACH and Flex Fees.

The bottom line is, PushPress Core strives to save you time and make your life easier. If you simply didn’t know about the options, or it’s been a while since you checked out the software, it’s a great time to see what Core can do for you!
