SHC: The All-in-One App for Health Clubs

SHC: The All-in-One App for Health Clubs

If you are a full-service Health Club, you have a bunch of amenities,  – gym, group ex, tennis, pools, spa, personal training, even tennis and pickleball and more. And possibly you even have a bunch of apps to offer and manage all these amenities for your members. And very likely, you are frustrated at working with multiple apps and multiple vendors.

But, we promise something different. We help you supercharge your member experience and growth. With one App.

We present an all-in-one Member Engagement Software for full-service Health Clubs, and here in this blog, I will talk about how we deliver on our promise.

We have divided our solution in 3 parts: Base Platform, Fitness Solutions, and Wellness Solutions. 


The Base Platform gives you all your basics with minimum fuss and streamlined interfaces. Everything you need for a basic member App. With the Base Platform, you get:

1. Rich Calendar Functionality: Your Calendar is super important. It’s what your members want to see. The SHC Calendar is integrated across mobile, web and also individual trainers and departments. You can set up a separate calendar for each department, with date, time, and instructor. Provide additional details such as photos, videos, difficulty level, location, instructor bios and more. Members can easily add classes/sessions into their own personal calendar.

2. Custom Branded App: Make your App look like your Club. Highlight your focus areas and what you do best. SHC prides itself on having the highest level of customisable branding in the industry. Here’s everything you can make custom:

  • Icons and splash screen
  • Branded color palette for background, text and buttons
  • Branded fonts for headings and body text
  • Unique and consistent branding across mobile and web
  • Segment pages with media elements for all your services

3. Social Network: Form a community like a mini Facebook at your club. Search for friends and join interest groups. Share achievements and motivate others. Safely interact with other authenticated members. Send or schedule club updates about closures or upcoming events as posts and push notifications. Additionally, your trainers and dieticians can create private groups and become influencers.

4. Digital Marketing: Advertise and sell all your classes and amenities. Target messages based on member interest and demographics. Text, photo or video messages by email, post or push notifications. Schedule messages to be delivered in the future. Deep link your messages with relevant classes and services. Display banners to show your marketing messages.

5. Analytics and Dashboard: We don’t have to tell you how important data is. Get the right data and analytics effortlessly. Here are some examples:

  • How many total App downloads from Playstore or App Store?
  • How many Bookings per location?
  • How many daily App Launches?
  • How many Member Check-ins?
  • How many members attended a class?
  • How many no shows and waitlisted members for a class?
  • How many views for an On Demand Video? Which video is doing well and which isn’t?
  • How many participants for a Live Streaming Class?
  • How much should I pay my instructor?

6. Purchases : Imagine each and every single amenity that your club offers – from classes to trainers to non-dues. And now imagine monetizing all of that with an Purchases layer. So, monetise ALL your plans, services and offerings. Through our Purchases Platform,

  • Members can purchase fee-based classes and services, hire trainers, instructors and dieticians.
  • Facilitate differential pricing by number of sessions, volume, package, duration or membership tiers.
  • Set up payments through stripe or integrate sales seamlessly with your billing company.
  • Sell personalized fitness training plans and diet plans to clients.

You’ve got your basics right here. But what if you want something more? That’s where the rest of the Fitness and Wellness solutions come in.
