The biggest issue Dan Uyemura sees with gyms right now is needing help to get on their feet.
“On one hand, this means helping them understand how to run a more efficient business,” said Uyemrura, the CEO of PushPress, Inc. “And on the other, it’s about helping them reduce some overhead as they’re working on scaling their business up.”
In fact, he said the No.1 reason gyms quit PushPress’ service is because they close their business. “As a result, we’re shifting our attention to helping them turn that situation around and grow,” he shared.
Thus, PushPress Free was born. Uyemura said they hope this helps those owners running smaller operations to have a management platform they can rely on, minus the large expense.
He shares more below on PushPress Free:
Dan Uyemura: In our industry, the trend lately has been to raise rates — which has left a lot of smaller gyms either system-less or having to pay a high percentage of their revenue to the system they rely on. We are looking to help there.
And the benefits are numerous: For gym owners who fall into the bucket described above, it allows them to get into a system to help them organize their operations and business without breaking their budget. For gym owners who are brand new, it allows them to get going and scaling — and paying an amount that’s directly in line with the amount of money they make. For trainers who are training clients on the side, it also allows them to operate using a system to save them time without paying a large percentage of their revenue to the platform.
DU: PushPress Free is almost exactly like the Pro tier system we offer, which is $139 per month. However, it has some limitations:
DU: Running a successful business relies on three things:
Software, by design, accomplishes all three of these. It allows you to have a standard operating procedure on how to handle aspects of your business — like onboarding a client or first day experience. It puts those procedures in replicable processes people get used to doing. Finally, it allows other people to take those tasks off your plate.
If done right, the software can take the place of people in the automation process and do the tasks itself.
Every small business needs software to help take their time back to focus on important things software cannot solve. This is why we’ve designed the free product to give smaller operations the same benefits the larger ones can afford.
