As a personal trainer (PT), your passion lies in helping clients achieve their fitness goals. However, managing client payments manually can be a daunting task, leading to potential challenges such as losing track of payments and the hassle of adding and removing client access in case of new clients and payment failures. 

Fortunately, there's a solution that not only simplifies payment processes but also enhances overall efficiency. In this blog post, we'll explore the difficulties associated with manual payment management and delve into the advantages of using FITR, a personal trainer software that leverages Stripe integration for seamless, automated financial transactions.

The pitfalls of manual payment management

We've heard it from coaches time and time again. Tracking payments across different clients and programs takes too long, mistakes are too easy to make, and it's not the reason why they became personal trainers. 

This not only creates the risk of overlooking payments but can also strain relationships with clients that you’ve worked hard to build. Removing a client’s access when they stop paying can also become problematic and difficult to monitor. Overall, the time-consuming and complicated practices you must keep up with may end up in a client experience that is undesirable.

Automation with Stripe integration

FITR and its Stripe integration can take away the stress and worry of managing manual payments. Allowing you more time and control over how you run your online personal training business. Furthermore, utilising a payment integration tool will allow you to grow your client list with more efficiency. We’ve looked into the benefits Stripe can bring to your business.
