Glofox is a gym and fitness studio management system that helps fitness professionals grow client bases, manage memberships, organize group fitness classes, and run their studios more efficiently. The software includes a members app (iOS and Android) and an integration with Trainerize for hosting live or on-demand workouts.
As you would expect from a gym and studio management system, Glofox’s features center around selling and managing memberships and organizing group fitness classes.
Glofox features include
There is also ‘Glofox Amplify,’ an automated communications tool that aims to “grow your business by converting more leads and retaining more members.” It appears this is an optional extra on Glofox plans, and customers are encouraged to speak to sales to find out more.
It’s worth noting that the software does not appear to have integrated time-tracking or the ability to process payroll. In fact, there is little in the way of workforce management features. In addition, the software focuses on static fitness studios (operating from fixed addresses) and does not accommodate in-home and mobile services.
If you’re looking for registration software for your mobile fitness studio, MarketBox might be more suitable. MarketBox is the first appointment-scheduling software specifically designed for in-home and mobile services. The entire MarketBox booking flow has been designed with the end user in mind. Customers can input their location and find the services or providers closest to them. Depending on how you’ve set up the booking flow, customers can book single, recurring, or packages of appointments and pay for them online, with a straightforward account registration that makes it easy for customers to complete their orders.
The software’s intelligent scheduling features and ability to establish travel zones also give business owners (or their employees) complete control over when and where they offer services. Book a no-obligation call with one of our experts to learn more about online registration — and all of MarketBox’s other mobile studio management features.
Glofox pricing starts at $110/month (according to Capterra) and varies depending on the type of business and the number of locations you have.

Unlike Glofox, all MarketBox plans can accommodate unlimited users and locations, allowing you to scale your businesses effortlessly without worrying if your software can keep up.
The main integration Glofox lists is Trainerize. This Glofox integration enables you to offer members customized workouts, digital coaching, and nutrition tracking and analysis. Trainerize also lets you create an on-demand library of workouts to share with your clients.
Glofox is not listed on Zapier, so you cannot easily connect your Glofox account with other sales, scheduling, and marketing tools, like Hubspot, Facebook, Mailchimp, etc. If the ability to customize your tech stack is important, MarketBox’s Zapier integration lets you connect with thousands of other apps at the click of a button.
Glofox reviews are generally favorable across the major review sites. Glofox users highlight the software’s many features that have helped them simplify operations in their fitness centers and gyms — particularly the attendance tracking and ability to manage memberships.
However, several Glofox reviews mention a learning curve to the software, and many appear to be dissatisfied with Glofox's customer service, which seems to be largely automated. A few reviews also mention having difficulty with payments not going through.
Many Glofox users also considered Mindbody as a scheduling software option for their fitness centers. To learn more about the software, read our Mindbody review.
