Its pretty simple, here at College Gym Tracker, our goal is to make the job a university fitness facility manager/director easier. We’ve been able to do so, by developing an app just for the job. College Gym Tracker was created with the guidance/perspective of Penn States’ fitness facilities director and staff, for fellow directors. With our app,we hope to solve the frustrations of wait lines, lack of funding, loss of patrons and other issues managers & staff face daily.
Fitness Facility Directors… You Can Build Better Relationships & Make Your Job Easier
While, a University Fitness Director/Manager has many responsibilities, we were most interested in the in their personal interactions. We wanted to find a way to improve these interactions and therefore the relationships at work. The three groups we view as having the most important interactions with managers are: staff, patrons and supervisors.
The College Gym Tracker platform provides easy-to-use tools that improve all three of these relationships.
How Accurate Attendance Tracking Helps Fitness Facilities to Improve:
With implementation of the College Gym Tracker app, facility directors/managers will have a vast amount of invaluable data collected and presented to them. With this data, a facility manager is able to make improvements to nearly every aspect of their facilities. By implementing the myFacility Custom App in addition to a subscription to CGT, you will always be in your patron’s pocket. Help keep patrons out of lines and in the gym.
Improve the Gym for Patrons/ Students:
- Stop Waiting: Report collected attendance data to the custom branded app for your patrons, myFacility, and to your website.
- Patrons have access to real-time information on attendance levels and wait times at your gym.
- Take Full Advantage: Patrons can make more informed decisions when deciding to go to a less crowded facility or workout and a less popular time – this allows them to take full advantage of your university fitness facility.
- Stay Connected: Patrons are connected directly to your social media efforts and your gym’s brand is right there on their phone’s desktop acting as a mobile bookmark.
= Happier patrons that can fully utilize your fitness facilities.
Improve the Gym for Management/ Staff:
- College Gym Tracker is a simple, easy to use interface on any iOS device.
- Staff can collect attendance data more quickly and accurately than ever before – no more tedious index card flipping or frustrating head counting.
- Precise staff schedules can be created based off of past attendance data – you’ll have more staff when and where you need them, and less sitting around during slow hours.
= Better balanced staff that can spend less time counting and more time attending to patrons.
Improve the Gym, Get Funding from your Boss:
- With the data collected from College Gym Tracker, present more accurate appeals for funding.
- Make your boss’ job easier by taking the guess work out of requesting improvements for your facilities.
= Convince your boss to spend resources and get the improvements your facility really needs.
