Mindbody vs. Glofox

Catchphrases like "best in class” get used a lot by our competitors, but it’s more than a slogan to us. That’s why gyms choose Mindbody’s industry-leading software over Glofox.

Attract new fitness lovers on the largest wellness marketplace
Keep clients moving with an built-in live streaming and VOD platform
Never miss a customer with a 24/7 AI receptionist to run your front desk

Glofox doesn’t provide a network of new clients ready to book your classes. It also doesn't offer a built-in live steam platform. Only Mindbody provides the innovative solutions that you need to grow your business.

Frequently Asked Questions

Glofox says it has all the same software features as Mindbody. How are you different?

Glofox doesn’t have the same level of funding that we have to support the product research and development that brings you world-class software. For starters, that’s how we offer live streaming video features in our software, rather than using a third-party platform. But Glofox also doesn’t have a network of millions of clients looking to book with studios like yours. Mindbody’s feature set is the reason global businesses like F45 choose us over any other software.

What about my client data? Will Mindbody switch that over from my current software?

Yes. During your onboarding, our Data Services team conveniently migrates your client data over from the software you’re using now.

Is the process of switching to Mindbody difficult?

Not at all. Our conversion team makes the experience seamless and painless.

I need help marketing my gym. Does Mindbody do that?

Absolutely, in a variety of ways. Mindbody’s Marketing Suite tools automate and simplify your marketing and give you professional features like templates, smart contact lists, client referrals, and client reviews to bring in new clients and keep them coming back to your gym. We’ll list your business on the Mindbody app and Google so new clients can find and book your classes with ease. We also help you put the right offer in front of the right clients and enable you to stay connected with them via automated and personalized messages. We’ll list your gym in the app at no cost to you, giving you exposure to millions of consumers who look for and book gym classes on the Mindbody app every day. These marketing features make Mindbody a clear-cut Glofox alternative.

How does Mindbody train new customers on its software?

Our incredible onboarding team trains you on the software, so you're ready to start using it right away. We also offer ongoing training and a steady stream of fresh educational resources, from blogs, guides and webinars to events and connections with business owners like you.
