Omnify Features vs Exercise.com
Omnify is a cloud-based business management software with features for scheduling appointments and classes, booking classes or appointments, collecting payments, automation, managing clients and staff, and personalizing websites. They market their software to many different types of businesses, from counseling services to sports classes to spas.
Exercise.com provides all of the features above, however, our software is fully customizable and does not stop with the basics. In addition to offering a fully-customizable experience, Exercise.com also provides our customers with:
A customizable exercise library
Automated workout engagement
– Fitness Business Management
With Omnify, clients can book and manage classes, as well as add themselves to a waitlist, but customization is limited.
Customization is the key when it comes to the workout management features of Exercise.com. You have the ability to set up calendars and schedules, send reminders to clients, view or manage workout plans, and customize and save any workout plan for clients.
For managers, directors, and owners, you can set up access and permissions for your staff, view reports, set up commission and payroll options, and manage your software from anywhere. Staff can view their schedules, send reminders or notifications to their clients, access their client information, and edit their bio and personal information.
For those who love tracking their workouts, you can easily send workout summaries for clients to view and track progress. The cool thing is that your clients are able to look at workout summaries and performance health assessments over time to see the progression toward their fitness goals.
Exercise.com makes it easy to manage your entire fitness business in one place from scheduling appointments and processing billing to completing client assessments and delivering workouts in your custom-branded apps.
– Custom-Branded Web & Smartphone Apps
The Omnify GO mobile app is available for Apple and Android devices. It is important to note that the Omnify GO mobile app and the web check-in app are not available for clients or class attendees to use to book classes or appointments.
Omnify allows for website customization with all plans. There are buttons, widgets, and WordPress integration for fitness business websites.
As a comparison, Exercise.com offers several mobile app options and website options and Exercise.com offers website and mobile app customization. This customization is not just the colors and logo, but also verbiage and custom dev options so that your branding is consistent across all platforms.
Clients can book and manage classes and appointments, view workouts and an exercise library, get reminders or notifications, and more with the use of your customized and branded mobile app.
The best part? You don’t have to be tech-savvy to enjoy a fully-customizable platform. Let our dev team take care of the coding, so you can get back to running your business.
– Workout Creation and Delivery
Although Omnify does promote its software as useful for fitness centers, health clubs, and yoga studios, it does not have any workout creation and delivery options. There is no exercise library, workout creation features, workout delivery, workout logging, or any options to track workout progress.
This is where Exercise.com has a clear advantage with our workout software. There is a large exercise library with videos, instructions, and muscles worked, with the option to add additional exercises that may not be in the library.
Clients or trainers can view or log workouts from anywhere with the mobile app. They also have the option to track attendance and view workout progress 24/7.
Personal trainers and fitness professionals can deliver workouts for any training scenario whether the clients are in your gym, anywhere in the world, pro athletes on the road, or in-between sessions. Even better, Exercise.com includes the workout software as part of their all-in-one system – no additional software needed.
“With Exercise.com, I’m able to reach people around the world with the programs that I design, implement, and push out. You don’t have that opportunity working in a local gym. So that’s been huge.” – Kellie Davis, Fit Thrive
– E-Commerce/Point of Sale
Omnify allows payment via credit card, debit card, and wire transfers. They have integrations with Stripe and Paypal for ease of crediting payments to and from those platforms.
Exercise.com has numerous e-commerce features built into its all-in-one software. Exercise.com has features to sell memberships or training packages to clients in your facility as well as virtual clients that may be from across the nation. Payments can also be automatic or recurring, as well as in-person or online.
Another great feature of Exercise.com is the option to sell specialized or customized workout plans to anyone, anywhere. Let’s say you are a personal trainer and you have had excellent results with a golf strengthening and conditioning program that you developed locally, but you are ready to take it to the next level. Exercise.com has the option for you to sell this specialized program for anyone in the world to purchase, view, and complete on their own if they desire.
Personal trainers can also deliver customized training programs to their clients, set up recurring workouts to be delivered as the client chooses, and set up workout challenges for current or new clients.
“I sold a workout program and matched my yearly salary of in-person training within two weeks of selling to my community!” – Paul Fabritz, PJF Performance

– Performance Assessments
Omnify has no performance assessment features built into its software. If a personal trainer or fitness professional was using Omnify for scheduling, e-commerce, and selling, they would need a separate system for performance assessment. This is one of the limiting factors of Omnify for use in fitness facilities and health clubs.
However, Exercise.com has a multitude of performance health assessment options. Trainers can perform and record a number of performance assessments on their clients, include body metrics and measurements, power, strength, and endurance assessments. Trainers can then use the assessment information to plan appropriate workouts and nutrition recommendations for their clients so the entire training experience is customized to each individual.
Clients can track their assessment data over time to see progress toward their fitness goals. Clients can also write notes or information in a journal and the trainer can view and comment on their journal.
Users are also able to track assessments using graphs and charts. Trainers and health professionals can also add custom assessment information to the system, giving a tremendous amount of flexibility to meet the needs of all clients and athletes. The great news is that the performance health software is built into the all-in-one Exercise.com setup, so no need for additional systems or programs.
– Client Engagement
Omnify has limited features for client engagement. There is very little interaction between clients and professionals using this software.
Exercise.com offers the ability to engage with clients both near and far. It’s easy to engage with clients that you see at the gym regularly, but there are also options to engage with your online and virtual clients using the features of Exercise.com. You can send workouts, notifications or reminders via email, app, or text, send assessment information, tips or motivational tools, and set up challenges or leaderboards to continually communicate with your clients.
Exercise.com offers fully customizable options within websites, mobile apps, and dashboards. These options are a beneficial way to engage with clients to help build your business, enhance your brand loyalty, and generate more revenue.
Omnify offers limited automation options. It allows professionals to send auto-invoices to clients and to send payment links via email. Clients can set up for auto-payment or recurring payments for packages or memberships.
Exercise.com, however, offers numerous automation options. Personal trainers can send workouts and performance assessment data to clients automatically. For example, if a fitness enthusiast wants to workout two times a week from their office gym, the trainer can set up those workouts to send automatically to the client.
Fitness professionals can also set up automatic reminders and notifications via email, app, text, or the website. Exercise.com also has endless integrations and continues to add more regularly. Power your business by connecting to Zapier, Stripe, YouTube, Vimeo, MailChimp, ConvertKit, ConstantContact, Refersion, Intercom, and more.
There are two options for pricing – a single location or multiple locations. The single location options vary from $79 a month for the essential package (billed yearly, increases to $99 a month if billed monthly), to $199 month for the plus package (billed yearly, increases to $249 if billed monthly), or $499 a month for the pro package (billed yearly, increases to $599 a month if billed monthly).
The multiple locations plan starts from $99 month (billed yearly) per location, which is ideal for businesses with two to 20 locations. For a business with more than 20 locations or more than 100 staff members, the enterprise package would be a better fit.
Top Direct Competitors
Trainerize, MindBody, Exercise.com, ZenPlanner, Virtuagym, and Vagaro are focused on fitness facilities and health clubs and they do include some of the workout creation, workout delivery, client engagement, and performance health assessment features that Omnify is missing. Pike13 is similar but does not have performance health assessment features.
The Bottom Line: Pros and Cons
Choosing the right software to run your business can mean the difference between success and failure, but it doesn’t have to be a hard choice because Exercise.com just makes everything easier.
– Omnify Cons
The big features that Omnify is missing are features that many fitness business owners need: the ability to engage with clients, develop and deliver workout programs, full customization, and the use of performance health assessments within the software.
For fitness professionals, fitness facilities, and health clubs, all-in-one software like Exercise.com would be a better fit. It has all the features they need in one system, for one price. Exercise.com users get all the functions that Omnify offers. In addition, they receive workout creation and delivery options (even for virtual clients), client engagement features, performance health assessment options, and fully-customized websites and smartphone apps.
– Exercise.com Pros
Customization is incredibly important when you’re looking to attract new clients and retain current clients. From building web and smartphone apps with your brand in mind to Exercise.com’s fully-customizable workout plan creator, our world-class dev team has ensured that managing your business will be a breeze.
In addition to Exercise.com’s long list of benefits, we also provide users with the option to track their nutrition. Trainers can adjust caloric needs based on whether a client is currently on a training day or a rest day and can add notes; another automated feature that we are happy to provide!
Hopefully, you see the benefit of not waiting to have a system and software in place that allows you to manage and grow your business for years to come.
