Becoming a thriving online training means moving your business onto an easy-to-use online platform. With GymGo, online trainers can create simple and beautiful web apps that are easy to use for both the trainer and the client. Below are a few tips for creating your own web app for online training in 5 minutes.
List services and availability on an online calendar
It’s important that you have a way to let your clients know when you’re available and for what service. A simple online calendar is a great way for all of your clients to be able to see when they can book a virtual session with you and what services you have available. This calendar will be the crux of your virtual training web app because it will make your availability visible and allow clients to book directly via the calendar.
Make sure you take the time to update your calendar if you’re not going to be available, and you create calendars far out in advance. Many clients, especially those who want to schedule consistent sessions with you, will be interested in booking out dates will into the future.
Enable online payment ahead of time
Beside your calendar, your online payment platform is the most important part of your web app. This is how you will make transactions, so the easier it is for your clients to do the better. Make sure you have your online payment method up and ready before you launch your app. Consider accepting a variety of payment methods including standard debit and credit cards, as well as Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal to give your clients as many options as possible. Setting up your web app so that clients will need to pay for scheduled sessions up front will reduce the number of no-shows and keep clients motivated to come to their virtual workouts.
Test your virtual streaming service
Without a functioning virtual streaming service, there can be no virtual training sessions. Testing your virtual streaming service before you launch your web app, and before you host your first virtual training session is essential. You’ll want to make sure that you consider things like clear audio, a simple background, camera angles, lighting, and contrast so that you can give your clients the best experience possible. Since virtual streaming relies heavily on internet for a clear connection, you’ll want to make sure that you have a fast internet provider and up to date software so you won’t have to worry about the video cutting out mid-session.
