The latest combination allows businesses to reach users that traditionally attend MINDBODY classes and also reach Gritness app and website users at the same time
(PRWEB) January 07, 2015
Gritness is now integrated with MINDBODY, the world leader in software for over 35,000 class and appointment-based businesses. Starting today, businesses that utilize MINDBODY to organize their business can share their schedules with the world on the fastest growing group fitness search engine, Gritness. With Gritness’ recent integration with MINDBODY, businesses can have their MINDBODY schedules appear in the Gritness Group Fitness Search Engine as well as on their own web company website. With the integration, a business’ service offerings will show up anytime a potential customer launches the Gritness apps or website and searches for fitness options near them. This includes the Gritness web app, iOS and Android mobile apps that are free to use for all users and non-business offering subscribers.
Gritness Co-Founder, Tommy Fad, stated that; "We notice other apps in our space which re-sell class spots. This is great if you are looking for a workout with a business, however we are seeing more and more workouts like The Rise (NYC) and November Project who do not have a payment component, they simply want to give people an option to get fit. Just because these groups don’t charge for workouts does not mean that there is not an opportunity. They are some of the fastest growing fitness movements. Regardless of payment, we want to show our users where to find these fitness activities."
The setup process requires only a few mouse clicks. Once a business subscribes to the service, Gritness will email a link that enables access from Gritness to a business’ MINDBODY schedule. From there, Gritness ensures a business’ service offerings are kept up to date so that new customers can find activities from anywhere. The service provides an alternative to generating leads from SEO or Facebook and Google Advertising by enabling businesses to reach more customers and market their activities to demographics outside of what they may consider their typical marketing channels.
The latest combination allows businesses to reach users that traditionally attend MINDBODY classes and also reach Gritness app and website users at the same time MINDBODY brings their industry leading online booking and scheduling features into Gritness’ search engine to expand MINDBODY’s online reach and give athletes an easier way to discover the MINDBODY classes they want to attend.
