Personal Training Success At Your Fingertips

No more missed sessions. A simple touch of the biometric fingerprint pad at the time of check-in allows you to synergistically manage sessions between members and personal trainers. Now you can securely track all sessions by either member or trainer. Every session that has been paid for and available can be verified at check-in.

You can assign members to specific trainers and set specific sales commissions, as well as view and print a detailed training history for each member. The fingerprint identification feature fully integrates with AAC's FrontDesk® club management software.
