OpenGym was made to make the process of finding and booking a court or field rental as easy and fast as possible for both gyms and customers. With the next generation of consumers increasingly utilizing mobile apps, it is crucial for facilities to accommodate customers to seamlessly book online.

OpenGym has worked tirelessly to provide a product that will allow gyms to onboard easily, handle finances, manage reservations and host events all in a cost-effective manner. “So why make the switch to OpenGym?” This blog will aim to answer these important questions.

What makes OpenGym special

OpenGym is looking to revolutionize the way gym owners can use software for booking reservations, managing finances or attracting new customers. OpenGym will function as a gym marketplace program where customers can view gym locations and availability, allowing for quick and easy booking for customers online. In addition to serving as a medium for gym reservations, OpenGym has also developed software to help gyms view and export their monthly financial revenues. Gyms will be able to effectively oversee customer's bookings, edit their gym details and spot key financial patterns all while safely storing user data and payment methods.

Another one of the key facets behind the OpenGym design is expanding the marketability of each local gym. Every gym has its loyal customer base, but how well does the gym reach out to new customers or tourists coming in from out of town? With optimized website search engine optimization, a modern website layout, and an Android & iOS mobile app, customers will quickly discover and make reservations at your gym, without any additional advertising required.

All gyms have slow months, it's true. As winter transitions into spring and spring turns into summer, more and more athletes want to trade in the indoor facility for the park right across the street. And that gym management software? Still charging you the same monthly rate in the summer as if it were peak season in January.

OpenGym will charge only on a reservation basis, so payment is based only on the user traffic generated through the OpenGym app. With OpenGym, there is no monthly fee! No sign-up fees, hidden fees, and software associate fees. Instead, OpenGym charges a standard rate 10% processing fee on card transactions made through OpenGym software. This means that only rentals made through OpenGym's payment processing will be charged! Our success is based on yours!

Our Mission

As the world continues to transition into a digital marketplace, it's important to give your customers the ease of using their smartphones and laptops to book their field rentals. OpenGym was founded when a group of college kids went out to play late one January night just to freeze their butts off and started looking for indoor gyms online. This process took so long, one important question had to be asked, “there isn't an easier way to do this?”, and after a few years of hard work, we are pleased to announce the launch of OpenGym.
