A Step By Step Guide to Our New Filtering Feature (Part 1)

If we asked you for a list of the top 10 things that you prioritize in your life, we could be sure that your health would hit somewhere within this list (and hope so!) It’s summer here in the U.S., the weather can be hot, humid, dry, or stormy, but it’s still a great time to make time for keeping your physical, mental, emotional, and social health in shape.

In fact, it has been reported that Americans tend to exercise more in the summer months than the winter months according to Gallup.com. Additionally, it appears that more Americans are exercising on a regular basis every week “with 55.5% indicating frequent exercise in June 2015, more than in any month since Gallup and Healthways began tracking this metric in January 2008” (Gallup.com). This is great news, and we hope you’re making time to hit the gym, park, or boost your fitness at home.

Likewise, if you’re a fitness center franchise owner, personal trainer, or fitness instructor, in our post today, we’re going to provide a step by step guide of how our new filtering feature provides more convenience for your gym members, trainees, or students all the while helping them to reach their fitness goals. Our scheduling system now features a zip code filter to provide your members with additional scheduling convenience by allowing them to find your nearest location.

Let's jump right into the tutorial!
