What is Gympass
Gympass is a SaaS platform that enables companies to extend the fitness and wellness programs
provided to their employees. Employees of subscribing companies can use Gympass to access over
45,000 fitness facilities worldwide. Gympass also offers several direct services to the company to help ensure program success. These services include communications and reporting.
How it works
Gympass allows employees of a company signed up to Gympass; to book and access gyms and studios at a lower rate. The company the client, works for pays the difference in cost.
Example: Glofox signs up to Gympass. Glofox employees book classes for 20% off the original price. Glofox then covers the difference.
The Benefits of becoming a Gympass partner
Gympass connects its partnered gyms with thousands of eligible employees from companies all across the UK who can use Gympass
The more Gympass members that return to the gym, the more income the gym will receive.
No costs, only benefits!
Gyms don't pay anything, yet Gympass will expand your online presence.
Failure to check a Gympass member into class would mean loss of sales to your studio. This is because Glofox and Gympass use a two-way integration system. The check-in process sends a message to Gympass that a class has been used, Gympass then forwards the remaining payment balance to you.

How Gympass users book into classes
Gym goers using Gympass will select the studio they want to attend on the Gympass App which will then pull up the schedule. They then click ‘book’ on the class they want to attend.
- If they have not booked with the studio before, an account will be created for them within Glofox.
- If they have booked with the studio before, the booking is automatically made on their Glofox account. Here's how that would look;
The end-user experience is handled on Gympass, not Glofox
How Gympass users book into open gyms
The process of booking an open gym and a class within a gym is pretty much the same. The Gympass user clicks 'Check-In' in the Gympass app. They then show as 'Pending' in the 'Access' tab on your Glofox dashboard. When they arrive at your gym/studio the Gympass will go to the front desk and a member of your staff will mark the check-in as 'Attended'. Just like the class check-in process, it is vital to click 'Attended' in order to process your payment.
How Gympass users find your gym/studio
In the Gympass app, they go to 'Check-in'. They see studios close by and select the one they want to attend. They only attend one studio per day. They must access the gym within 30-90 minutes. This setting is dependant on the studio but in general, it's 45 mins. Here's what that would look like;
How bookings show on your dashboard
The first time a user attends your gym/studio you won't be sent their name. You will see the user on the 'Access' tab of the dashboard as Gympass 0123456. The number will be their Gympass ID.
You should add the user's name and email and phone number to their profile on their first visit. 'Confirm' button in the Access list to let Gympass know the user attended. At this point, Gympass pays out to the studio.
Lastly, you will click 'Confirm' to before granting them access to ensure payment is processed.
