Gym Check-in Software Buyers Guide
What should you look for in a check-in software solution to manage your gym’s members? First, the check-in software solution you select must improve your member engagement. It should also feed your staff the member and guest information that they need to provide stellar service. Lastly, your check-in software solution should provide your club with vital member management information such as group fitness class registrations, upcoming birthdays, and even outstanding balances that need to be paid.
Part of your assessment should include:
- Event Check-in Functionality
- Popular Check-in Software Features
- Event Check-In Report Types
- Evaluating Ease of Use and Data Access
- Access Control and Entry System Support
- Pricing and implementation
Motionsoft provides all of these features and more.
One of our goals is to help you get your members working out in no time with personal attention, alerts, and security.
With Motionsoft’s check-in software, you can even use alerts to introduce personal training promotions when members are checking in or to notify loyal members of a staffing change in their favorite Body Pump class.
Your staff will also have access to easy-to-see graphics, oversized fonts, and audio cues that simplify new staff training while improving your brand experience for your members.

Gym Check-In Report Types
One of the most overlooked aspects of a versatile check-in software solution is the reporting package that comes along with it. Here are nine core reports every software solution should contain:
- No Entry Log
- Visits Log
- Visits Report
- Message Report
- No Entry Report
- Visit Count
- Visits Graph
- Guest Visit Report
- Locker Report
Access Control and Entry System Support
Enjoy our Check-In Software’s compatibility with the most sophisticated entry systems in the marketplace, including key-tags, card readers, radio-frequency identification (RFID), and even biometric entrance-control solutions (fingerprint, handprint, iris) that can activate turnstiles or magnetically unlock doors in under a second. Best of all, Motionsoft’s Check-In Software is integrated with Gantner access controls, so you, your staff, and your members are always protected.
Pricing and Implementation
Software pricing is critical. Often the assessment comes down to whether the tool is priced on a per-location or per-member model. Once a club begins to grow, per-member pricing can become too expensive to maintain, which is why a more reliable pricing framework like per-location billing is more advantageous no matter the size of the facility. Motionsoft offers per-location pricing for this very reason.
You should also consider whether your software solution is a stand-alone solution or part of a bundled all-in-one software package. With a bundled solution, you can enjoy integrated billing and fewer software applications to manage. Motionsoft offers both of these features so that you don’t have to manage multiple draft files when processing a single member’s billing.
Finally, when choosing an all-encompassing software solution, you should consider its implementation timeline. Ideally, look for check-in software tools that can be fully deployed in 15 to 60 days. Motionsoft promises this implementation schedule to all of our customers.
