The world has changed overnight. Social distancing and responsible isolation have created new challenges for getting to the gym. As a club franchise owner, you will have to be able to innovate quickly to stay relevant going forward. Your club management system is at the heart of your business, you need to be able to connect your membership to the latest trends to survive. 

I never thought I'd see something like this in my lifetime. I've been in the gym everyday for over 20 years. Mandated gym closures are a reality now and our customers need us to lead. It is time to adapt.

Open source, transparent API is where this industry is going fast. If your club management software can do it... your web or mobile app should be able to do it too. Being empowered to innovate should be your number one concern going forward. 

With GX, you have raw access to the same endpoints the POS and membership manager have. So building a new iPhone app or launching membership protected content is easy.  

Online workouts are becoming popular and to succeed at providing a competitive platform, you need to be able to tie your member management system to your streaming network. 

GX can do that.

Customers are going to buy memberships to participate and you have to know who has paid when they walk through your virtual door. 

GX API can provide the same access control on a live stream as it does at the front desk in the gym. Customers can 'check-in' to web classes online or using your app and GX natively handles it.
