How much does Fitli cost? How is the pricing determined?
Fitli's membership pricing is determined based on the number of 'business users' (think instructors, trainers, owners, etc) that you have active on your account. For some businesses, this means they are a solo owner running their own studio (1 account), for others, they have multiple trainers/instructors/professionals teaching (larger studio). Our pricing structure can be found here on our PRICING PAGE.
I'm having problems with the iOS app - how do I fix it?
We've recently released a new version of the app, make sure you have the latest release from the App Store
If you find the app crashing at launch, try this fix. Head to the 'Settings', then 'General', then tap on "Storage and iCloud Usage", then tap 'Manage Storage'. Delete the Fitli app entirely, then re-download the app. This should fix any issues!
I just downloaded the iOS app and want to schedule a class!
Are there any long term or minimum contracts with Fitli?
Fitli offers monthly and annual contract membership options, including a Free, 30-day Trial membership! You may cancel anytime, without any questions and you won't be billed for the next period. If you are billed and decide to cancel - you can cancel for a full refund within 1 business day.
How do I signup for an account?
What are the differences between a Personal, Professional and Business account?
At Fitli, we have three different account types:
- Personal accounts are for individuals who are looking to signup for classes or events with a business or trainer.
- Professional accounts are for those people whose jobs are personal trainers, coaches, therapists, etc.
- Business accounts are for companies in the business of training others to become fit! If you know which type of account you're looking for, signup now! Or, if you have more questions, schedule a demo or check out the site!
How do I verify my email?
- We no longer require your email address to be verified. During the signup process, we prompt you to enter your personal email twice, reducing the chances it's entered incorrectly. This should both protect your privacy and help reduce the roadblocks to signing up for a new account! You can also reset your password in case you're having problems.
Why do you need some of my personal information?
- Here at Fitli, we use some of the personal information you provide to match you up with the best fitness professionals in the business! Be assured that we don't sell or market any of your personal information to any business you haven't specifically signed up with or scheduled a class with. After you schedule a class, we'll send them your contact information so you can be booked in their class. Later, during the account signup process, you can add in as much or as little personal information as you'd like. If you have any questions or other concerns about your information, you can read our Terms of Service or email us with questions.

How can I tell how many sessions I have left with business "Business Name?"

BUSINESS SPECIFIC QUESTIONS
Why isn't my business showing up in a search of businesses in my area?
- Make sure you have the "Profile is viewable and searchable" button selected to "YES". This page is found under "Admin" -> "Business Profile", at the top of the page. By default, upon signing up, this flag is set to off. Once you're ready for your business to go live on Fitli, just turn it 'On', and current and new customers will be able to find your business when searching!
How to make my business viewable in searches?
Can I add my business calendar to my website?
- Yes! You can 'embed' your Fitli business calendar on your business website, whether you're on Squarespace, Wix, Webflow, or any other hosted provider. Click here to get instructions on embedding your business calendar.
What's the difference between a service and a package? How do I know what is which?
- Think of it this way; SERVICES are individual items, like Yoga or Pilates classes, and PACKAGES are groups of items, like punch cards or monthly memberships.
How can I change/update the credit card on file for a customer?
- As a business, you've got two options for updating a customer's credit card. One - you can use the 'Customer' feature on your business account to make a purchase for a customer, then, update their credit card information when taken to the billing page. This is typically done when a customer is there at your studio, in person, or over the phone with their permission.
- Two, you can refer your customers to login, visit their Account page, and update their credit card in the billing section.
Can I refund a client's purchase? How do I do that?
Yes! Although we prefer to give session or package credits, we can complete refunds in a simple one-step process.
How to refund a Client?
What are Appointments and how do they work?
- Appointments are just like what they sound, 1 on 1 sessions scheduled with a single client, for a time length you determine, with a specific professional. They're great for individual client sessions, personal training, one-on-one's, anything where you have a client that wants personal attention.

How do I setup Appointments as a Business?
- There are a few things you'll need to get your business up and running, including: Your business hours, each professional's schedule, and a list of each of your 'services' and how long they last (30 minutes, 60 minutes, etc). Then, in "Admin" -> "Appointment Configuration", turn on the ability to book appointments. That's it! From there, you can add appointments to your business calendar, and clients can book private 1 on 1 appointments with your professionals!
How do I book an appointment as a business or a consumer?
I'm trying to schedule an appointment, but the correct time slot doesn't appear (I'm a professional), why?
