Scheduling Software, Mobile App Popularity Up as Personal Training Industry Grows, According to Appointment-Plus

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) April 20, 2013

The U.S. personal fitness industry will grow by 24 percent through 2020, creating an increased demand in mobile technologies to help trainers grow their client base and revenue.

This includes scheduling software apps to better manage client appointments.

Reporting this increase is The U.S. Department of Labor in its Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2012-13 Edition. It adds that the growth stems from more businesses and insurance organizations recognizing the benefits of health and fitness programs for their employees.

The result is more incentives to join health clubs, gyms and other fitness facilities. And more opportunities for personal fitness trainers.

Billy Malkovich, CEO of Mountainside Fitness clubs in Arizona, agrees with the Labor Department statistics, stating in Club Solutions Magazine that as he’s seen the potential for industry growth first-hand.

“Personal trainers and instructors make up the majority of my staff,” he said. “We’ve seen more growth outside of the club, as we open new locations.”

Given their mobile nature, personal trainers are rarely found behind a desk. Their office is their fitness club, rented space or their clients’ homes or businesses.

This makes routine tasks such as processing payments and scheduling client sessions a seemingly endless process.

Here are four reasons why personal fitness trainers need mobile apps to help them grow their business:

1.    Accessibility.

Mobile apps provide instant access to their calendars, schedules, financial information, client data and other information. A mobile app allows them to manage these right from the gym floor between sets.

2.    User-friendliness.

While accessing an online program via a Web site is possible through a smart phone or tablet, it’s not as quick or easy as through a mobile app. Mobile apps provide instant access to information without having to navigate a Web page. This is especially true for Web sites that are not mobile-optimized.

3.    Speed.

Mobile apps generally are faster than accessing Web pages through a smartphone or tablet browser. Time savings allow trainers to schedule more sessions during their workday.
