Justify the cost of Wodify

Hello guys!

I am interested in implementing Wodify at our facility. I have around 270 members and we have been growing pretty steadily for the past months. One of the things I feel I need improving for the business is the software / membership management.

As Wodify is coming hugely popular among Crossfit boxes (claim around 1700 affiliates of ~10.000 use their software) I have started looking into that. But the biggest concern for me is the cost.

As I have over 200 members I would be paying the 350$ a month or 4200$ a year. That is almost enough to pay the rent for one month a year (and our rent is high) which is in our business plan a big sum of money.

Is it really worth it?

I would say, that depends really? Is it only the management system you are looking for? Cause then it is a bit pricy.

Re: Justify the cost of Wodify

On the community building side it's amazing. It gives the members quick access to all their past performances and access to the whiteboard for that days wod. We switched over a few months ago and love it. We are still learning a lot about it. The integration with facebook and wordpress is great too.

Re: Justify the cost of Wodify

I think it's cool and cutting edge stuff but I've used RxGymSoftware for almost 4 years now. I pay $15/month and it does almost the same thing as Wodify. The only thing Wodify does that mine doesn't is Point of Sale stuff. That'd be nice to have. But I, personally, can't justify the switch.

Re: Justify the cost of Wodify

My box has just implemented Wodify (Where I workout - I'm not an owner). From a user/member perspective it is being well received and looked on as a positive. I see it as a chance to build our community deeper - moving commentary and relationships past the members who regularly work out together.

Update, I'm watching the interactions taking place in the new Wodify system in my box. Members comment, cajole, tweek, and congratulate each other within the system. This is going to strengthen our community.
