Owner at CrossFit Turbine
Stefan Cox, owner of CrossFit Turbine, just west of Chicago in Carol Stream, IL, established a company mission that aims to improve the health, fitness and happiness of the world, one member at a time. His team focuses on giving each client personal attention, encouraging hard work, continuously improving their coaching skills and offering the best equipment and facilities.
Stefan set a goal when he opened the doors to CrossFit Turbine to align and partner with the best businesses in the industry. He started this undertaking with a search for the right software solution to meet his needs. Stefan wanted to establish an efficient business routine, even before he opened the doors to his studio. To do this, he needed software that would streamline important business tasks like accounting, finance, member management, billing, scheduling and retail.
“We were looking for software that would systemize everything,” said Stephen. “We needed software that would make it easy for members to reserve a class, while allowing us to see which classes were being booked and who’s attending so we can identify how many coaches we really need for each class,” added Cox.
Once the review of fitness software providers was complete, Stefan decided that Zen Planner would be the best partner. “We interviewed all the companies in the fitness software industry and chose Zen Planner,” said Stefan. “Zen Planner may not be a perfect fit for everybody, but I encourage fitness gym owners to interview all of the software providers and chances are you will be more impressed with Zen Planner than any other. Their product is the best, hands down,” said Stefan.
After installation and training, Stefan estimates that Zen Planner saves about 50% of his time each month with the management of billing, scheduling and the retail store. “First, you need to systemize everything,” said Stefan. “The earlier you can do this, the more time you can spend on your members. We are fortunate because this extra time has allowed us to build a strong community that supports us and helps market our gym. Zen Planner has helped us succeed.”
