#1 Mindbody Alternative

GymMaster is the preferred alternative to Mindbody. See why so many gyms and health clubs globally move to GymMaster.

Mindbody is one of the largest software providers in the fitness space, but we often hear from gym and fitness club owners that Mindbody’s software doesn’t work for their business model.

They find that their staff spend too much time figuring out workarounds for issues, they get frustrated at the lack of flexibility, all while spending too much money on additional modules for the functionality that their club needs.

We understand that the software you use to run your fitness business is one of the most important decisions you will make.

Easy to Use

GymMaster is simple to navigate and feels natural to use. Each module is completely coherent with each other, integrated by design. From member management and booking to billing, point of sale and door control – GymMaster gives you a great user experience.

Fast to Use

Say goodbye to queues at reception! GymMaster is straightforward and learned quickly, making administrative and reception tasks more time efficient; and staff training a breeze. There’s no need to carve time out of everyone’s busy schedule for comprehensive training.

Our training team promises to make sure that you’re completely comfortable with the software & will help you set everything up to your requirements. More than that – they’re always available for questions along the track.

No Hidden Costs

With GymMaster, what you see is what you get – we’re not into hidden costs, and we don’t believe in making you buy add-on APIs to get full use of the product, or charging per staff member. Our pricing page clearly outlines how much you can expect to pay, and what you can expect to get – although we love building custom packages designed uniquely for your business! Contact our sales team to see what we can do for you.

Cancellation Policy

We also appreciate that sometimes things don’t work out. That’s why we offer a 60 day money back guarantee. It’s worth noting that this is something that happens very rarely – but we’re an understanding bunch.

Unstaffed 24/7 gyms are gaining huge traction, and GymMaster is fast becoming the leading choice for reliable, cost-effective 24/7 gyms in the USA and beyond.

Intelligent Hardware

GymMaster’s access control hardware has got your back. All attendance and membership info is recorded so in the case of an internet outage, the GateKeeper will continue working your doors as usual.


With a simple-to-set-up tailgating solution from GymMaster, evidence of tailgating is recorded so you can identify offending members and protect your business with ease.


Billing Provider Choices

Our billing provider integration options can be found in the PCI Compliant Billing Partners section of our Integrated billing page. This gives you the power to make the choice that’s best for you, rather than just having to accept whatever is being bundled, as is the case with some alternative packages.

Billing Flexibility
