Very pleased - The customer support we receive is excellent, friendly, personable and quick to respond.

Coacha was affordable for us and very importantly had a model that didn't take more of our income as we became more successful. The system also looked pleasing to the eye and appeared to have the momentum of ongoing development behind it. This is a very well thought out piece of software.

We don't charge you more if you grow!

If your PT business expands, some organisations will charge you more in subscription fees. At Coacha, the no.1 PT booking system software, we don't believe you should pay more for putting in the work and growing your business. So, whether you've just recently started off with just a few clients, or are an established PT business with 100+, you will always pay one very reasonable, fixed price. 

Absolutely no hidden obligations

We don't believe in locking you into a contract, so there are no annual fees to pay or papers to sign. Unlike with some of our competitors who offer ‘FREE Software’, we don’t insist you put all of your finances through Coacha. We don’t make any money from your transactions at all – other companies out there do, so be careful!

No fixed term contracts - cancel any time

While we're confident you'll love Coacha as much as we do, it's good to know you can cancel at any time. You pay us on a monthly basis – just like with Netflix. And, just like with Netflix, you're free to cancel your subscription with us at any time.

Kevin Arrigan – Treasurer - review on Capterra & Coacha subscriber

Designed to make your life as a PT instructor easier ...

That's what has enabled us to create Coacha; a personal training booking system designed to help you focus on the things you love - teaching and training. With a simple but powerful interface that cuts admin time in half, keeps all of your clients' details to hand no matter where you are, and is proven to minimise missed payments, Coacha is the perfect solution for streamlining your day-to-day client management.

Personal Training Software FAQs

With so many personal trainer software providers on the market, it's a confusing (not to mention time-consuming) process to find the right system for you. Here are some frequently asked questions that may help you decide what's right for you.

What is the real cost of personal trainer software?

The devil is in the detail here as many providers hide their true transaction fees. In our mystery shopper research, we found fees as high as 20p + 4% per transaction, compared to Coacah’s 20p + 1%.

It doesn’t sound a lot, but when you add it up over the course of a year, it runs into thousands of ££’s.

For example, if you have 100 clients and charge them £30pcm each, by using LoveAdmin you would pay £2,125pa in transaction fees. With Coacha you would pay only £1,044pa which includes our subscription fee of £25pcm and the transaction fees. So that’s a huge saving of £1,081pa.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What are the limits with Coacha?

There really are no limits. You have unlimited everything with Coacha. Clients, trainers, sessions and sessions, registers, subscription plans, email…the full works!

The only thing you pay extra for are text messages. And these are as low as anyone else in the market at 4.5p per text message.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is PT software easy for clients & parents to use?

If you want clients and parents to login to Coacha, then yes, your own bespoke ‘Client Portal’ is very easy to use. It has been painstakingly designed to be really easy to use, so there’s no excuse for people not to login!

Great for them, time saving for you, and having a PT booking system with your own logo on it really makes your PT business look professional and well organised.

What’s more, clients get to see all the personal info you have on them and they can update and/or download it if they want (great for your PT businesses GFPR compliance!)

There are also FREE Andriod and iOS apps   available for everyone to use too. What’s not to like?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If I use a personal trainer software, will it help with my accounts?

Absolutely, as it keeps everything digital and streamlined. You can see whose has paid you what, when and how. Plus, you can keep a very close eye on how much money your PT business is taking. And if it is losing anything from your people not paying you.

What’s more, accountants love personal trainer software that they can download from and integrate your PT business’s financials to the software that they use. Software like Xero, Quickbooks or Sage to name but a few all help with making tax digital (MTD)  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do I need a card reader to take payments if I use PT software?

No, you don’t.

Do away with the expense and hassle of terminals and readers. You can take card payments through Stripe and direct debits through GoCardless.

Need a client to pay for a T-shirt or kit? You can send them a one-off payment request by email or take a payment right there in front of them using the Coacha interface.

Not having a card reader not only reduces your costs but simplifies your online billing processes straight away. It also makes your PT business look professional and well organised.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What happens if payments fail?

Let’s face it, payments do sometimes fail and for various reasons. Only the best personal trainer software has a payment retry process, especially one that retries up to four times.

Whether a bank error, a cancelled payment or just insufficient funds, having a robust subscription management system  means you can simply ‘set and forget’ freeing you to get on with tasks that are more enjoyable than admin!

You can choose to be notified that a payment has failed and is being retried, or just set Coacha so that you’re notified when the last attempt has failed. Just think of the amount of time this will save you with chasing people for money they owe you…

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does PT software help me if I have an emergency?

When looking for the best PT software, choose something where you will always have Emergency Information to hand. It is essential you make sure you have emergency contact info available, as well as medical notes for all of your clients.

Also, make sure that whatever personal training appointment scheduler you go for it has the ability to work ‘offline’ for when you don’t have mobile internet access or a decent wifi signal. Coacha’s apps are designed to work without internet access and will automatically synch with Coacha the minute you get internet access again.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What stats and figures can I get from a PT booking system?

Performance, attendance, and financial data are crucial for any PT business that wants to stay at the top of their game. The personal training appointment scheduler should show you instantly your client attendance levels and who’s been putting the work in, and equally as much, who hasn’t.

It should also give you easy access to your headline financial info whether for the last week, month or whole year. Quick access like this means quick decisions can be made and you’ll always be in control of the money in your Personal Trainer business.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With a personal trainer software I’m told I still need to comply with GDPR – will it help?

Any organisation that collects personal data must comply with GDPR legislation, and that includes PTs. The very fact that you choose to use a PT software itself will show that you have data protection built into the running of your PT business .

A bespoke ‘Client Portal’ such as those you get free with Coacha enable people to access the personal data you hold on them. A personal training appointment scheduler with this functionality will also give your users the ability to edit and download their data if they want to. This type of advanced functionality really is the gold standard of GDPR compliance.

Want to really get to grips with GDPR, why it’s important and what you should be doing to keep your personal trainer business compliant? If you do then download our FREE GDPR in sports guide which not only explains GDPR but also gives you practical tips you can implement immediately.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can I get free attendance registers too?

Any personal trainer software that’s worth considering simply must have automatically generated attendance registers. Having these automatically produced for you saves both time and hassle with your PT business’s admin. They should be 100% free too and not an add on or upgrade feature.

You should be able to quickly add clients in, set up your sessions and hey presto, your registers are automatically created. When you, your team or your clients log in, they get to see what's on straight away. This is an essential factor to look for in any PT booking system.

Coacha’s advanced attendance register features mean that you can enable sessions that people can book straight on to without coming to you first. On the day of the session itself they can also check themselves again without tying up any of your staff’s time.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can I get free personal trainer software?

If you’re after a free personal trainer software downloads, then why not try Coacha Lite which is completely FREE Membership Management Software?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can people book on to sessions themselves?

Not all PT software (UK or overseas) allows clients to book on to sessions directly themselves. However, by enabling ‘make session bookable’ in Coacha you can reduce your time on admin and speed up the way in which your clients can register for sessions.

Great if you run open sessions that people can book onto if they want to attend, and with setting a session size you can ensure that your sessions are never over-subscribed. Your clients can simply log into your Client Portal and book up in just a few taps or clicks.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I only operate during term time – does this matter?

Many PTs with younger clients have term time/seasonal timetables and sessions. The best personal training appointment scheduler should give you the ability to have start and end dates for your sessions as opposed to just weekly or monthly options.

With unlimited sessions and registers, Coacha is perfect for setting start / end periods to whatever you want. Great for school term-based sessions as well as events such as one off competitions, or showcases or exhibitions.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I get people turn up unexpectedly to my sessionss – how can I add these people?

It happens. People turn up unexpectedly to a session or event and you know that you need to collect some of their personal details just so they can join in. Some management software doesn’t cater for this in a way that is quick and easy to sort out on the day.

With Coacha’s PT booking system, you can avoid delays when extra people turn up unexpectedly. Quickly add them to the attendance register without having to mess around with the app settings or add a full new client. Then, after the session, you can go back and add more of their details in when you have more time.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does free personal trainer software (or paid for) help with safeguarding children?

When performing a personal trainer software comparison make sure that whatever you choose helps with safeguarding children. Make sure you are able to segment the children’s information so that only specific staff are able to see their personal information.

Coacha lets you set different levels of access as you don’t want people seeing the wrong data. The messaging centre also has NPSCC CPSU text and email rules built in so that people are unable to contact children directly without other’s being copied in. This can include other clients, staff, parents and even your safeguarding officer.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can I send text messages to people using a PT booking system?

Check out independent PT software reviews and always make sure that any software or app that you use only partners with industry leading SMS specialists. Coacha partners with the best SMS service in the UK - TextLocal. You'll enjoy amazing rates, quick delivery and accurate reporting. No need to use your mobile text allowance again!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I only want to message specific people. Can I do this with a personal training appointment scheduler?

Being able to select and control who receives your messages from your personal trainer software is very important. You really don’t want to bombard people with messages not relevant to them.

As part of your PT software UK Coacha enables you to customise who you send your messages to with ease. Send to just your colleagues, clients of a certain session, to a specific group, or to everyone ... you're in total control.

No card needed. No commitment. No brainer.
