Fitness Pros Who Trust Exercise.com
RhinoFit Software Review
RhinoFit is a gym management software focused on managing different aspects for a business such as digital waivers, appointments, and product management.
RhinoFit was created in 2012 as a Crossfit gym management software but has grown to manage gyms, dojos, clubs, and fitness studios. While catering to a variety of niches, RhinoFit is not without its faults. Some reviews highlight the lack of user-friendliness and the lack of customer support:
“The app is not user friendly. You have to sign in every time, the buttons are hard to push because they are so tiny. The email does not have spell check, there is a lot of room for error when sending out mass emails.”(Capterra)
“Tried calling multiple times for help and no answer also set an email but it’s been over a week with no response.”(Capterra)
RhinoFit vs Exercise.com
The reviews above that say the app is not user-friendly and that their customer service is inadequate can be a bit concerning for a fitness business owner. Aside from a hard-working development team, Exercise.com has an advisory board comprised of some of the top fitness professionals to help ensure that necessary features are present in our system. This helps make certain that features are up to date and user-friendly. We also have excellent customer support service through phone, email, and chat to ensure your questions or concerns are met.
Overall, it seems that the majority of users that use RhinoFit’s system say that, for the most part, its software system performs to their basic needs. The problem, however, is that you need more than just a system to manage and grow your business. You need a fully customizable software to tend to YOUR specific business needs — something that Exercise.com provides while having the support system you can count on.
Unless otherwise stated, all images and reviews below are of/about All-In-One Fitness Business Management software platform.
Fitness Business Management (FBM)
RhinoFit’s software is able to manage basic key areas such as attendance, class scheduling, and electronic payments. With Exercise.com, we have a dedicated fitness business management (FBM) software that is built into the same platform that is used to build workouts. There is no need to learn different systems of software as everything you need is conveniently in one place.
Calendars and Booking
RhinoFit’s software is able to schedule individual or class appointments but is missing a key integrational feature — syncing with third-party calendars:
“I don’t like that there is no direct link to my phone from the RhinoFit Calendar to my google calendar. We live by our phones so this is a MUST HAVE feature.”(Capterra)
Our software at Exercise.com has the ability to integrate with not only Google calendar but Apple calendar as well. Our software also allows for public booking on your web, iPhone, and Android apps.
Accepting Payments Easily
RhinoFit allows for recurring or one-time payment options through credit card or ACH payments automatically. With Exercise.com, we created our dedicated Fitness Business Management Software (FBM) in which you can access all of your payment tools in the same custom-branded web and mobile app both easily and securely. Clients will be able to pay a one-time or recurring price with cash, check, or credit card. Our software also allows you to be able to accept direct deposits and allow online purchasing for packages.
Increase Business Efficiency with Easy Report Access
RhinoFit offers streamlined reporting to organize information for your business. Exercise.com also offers reports on various gym metrics in sales, business, appointments, class, and payroll all in one place. You can also sort reports by client, location, or service.
Increase Revenue with Key Business Marketing Integrations
Integration with other companies is important. RhinoFit prefers that you use Gulf Management Systems for processing, but allows other options such as Authorize.Net, Beanstrea, and more. Exercise.com prides itself with numerous integrations with not only companies like Stripe, Vimeo, and Youtube but also:
- Google Analytics
- Facebook Pixel
It helps to be able to learn and put a system in place to say ‘We have this issue with the shoulder or this elbow pain, this hip internal rotation issue’ and we’ve gone through it with 25 other guys. We’ve had good success with 24 of them so we have a game plan in place.
The flip side is if you get stuck in a rut and your systems don’t work and are not scalable you’re just like why isn’t this working. You can’t see outside the box at all. Systems help eliminate problems.
Custom-Branded Websites, Web, and Smartphone Apps
Rhinofit provides a mobile app that is compatible with iOS and Android. However, their mobile app is not fully customizable to your specific business. Exercise.com’s, however, is.
Fully Customized to Your Brand
As mentioned above, RhinoFit is missing the importance of featuring your brand and business on your apps and websites. Exercise.com offers you your own fully customizable app. You won’t be searching for a fitness software brand to find your app. It is your specific brand and business and it will be featured as such.
Automation from Your Own Custom Apps
RhinoFit allows automation in different areas such as messaging and payments.
Exercise.com also allows you to automate a wide range of areas, including:
- Emails and Texts
- Workout Delivery
- Resource Delivery
- Assessment Delivery
- Reminders/Alerts via app, text, and email
RhinoFit’s lack of a fully customizable website and app can lessen the marketability of your brand. With Exercise.com, you are able to have a responsive and SEO-driven website with customizable features such as inputting a blog for posts, inputting sections for e-commerce, unlimited theme changes, and custom graphic work.
Both RhinoFit and Exercise.com feature necessary security measures in SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and Payment card industry (PCI) compliance standards.
Integrations and Add-ons
With RhinoFit you are able to integrate your own custom product page, student sign-in, or membership store into your gym website. On top of including the integrations provided by RhinoFit, Exercise.com powers your business by connecting to Zapier, Stripe, YouTube, Vimeo, MailChimp, ConvertKit, ConstantContact, Refersion, Intercom, and more.

Workout Creation and Delivery
Deliver Workouts for Any Scenario
RhnoFit’s website doesn’t mention specifically its software capability for workout creation. With Exercise.com, you have access to a simple workout plan creator and exercise manager. This provides flexible solutions that allow the delivery of custom workouts for any scenario such as:
- Workout Planning-Personal Training
- Nutrition Assistance
- Goal Setting
- Plans for Traveling Athletes
- In-Person Clients
- Trainer Logging
- Online Clients
- Hybrid Clients (in-person/online)
- Busy Professionals
Customized Workout Design and Library
We have a dedicated workout plan creator which allows you to customize your own exercise library with videos, tips, steps, and notes. You are able to create workouts once and schedule any workout to clients, groups, or classes automatically. You can even automate delivery for PDFs, nutrition plans, and more. Workout progress data is also stored automatically with activity, performance records, workout snapshots, summaries, and leaderboards.
E-Commerce/Point of Sale
RhinoFit’s software allows you to streamline your product online. Exercise.com allows you to sell pre-built single workout plans to your clients easily online as well. Selling online can be great for your business and having your products advertised specifically to your custom standards can set you apart. For example, Mike Boyle, of Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning (MBSC), had over 700 clients within 12 months of releasing programming online using our software. Below, we will visually highlight some ways that our software can set your business apart.

Complete Assessments for Clients
Performance assessments are important.
Clients need to see they are improving and will be happy to continue to use your services when they see results. According to RhinoFit’s website, its software allows for performance and commissionable sales tracking and benchmarks. They also have a rank and belt progression feature specifically for martial arts clients.
With Exercise.com, you are able to create custom assessments for your clients or members. That assessment can provide history, measurement data, injuries, photos/videos, and goals. You can also use the assessment to trigger a workout specifically developed for that client’s success based on smart data from their onboarding.
Automate Client Engagement with Assessments
Exercise.com’s Performance Health Software allows you to deliver recurring assessments to re-engage clients while also providing progress photos and measurements. You can put together a custom way of re-engaging clients how you deem fit. Rhinofit’s software is able to set up automatic reservation reminders and custom messages; however, there is no automation feature pertaining to assessments.

You need to be sure to go with an up to date software that won’t limit but enhance your business growth. Here are a few pros and cons to round out this review.
RhinoFit’s software is capable of managing your business in the basic sense but it is not designed for YOUR business. You do not have your own fully custom branded app or website and, in essence, it may feel like your business is being plastered on their software. You need to be able to utilize software that is designed to promote your brand and business the way you want it to. With RhinoFit, there can be a lack of customizability and marketability in an age where marketability can make or break your business.
Exercise.com is an all-in-one fitness business management software that features your app, your software, and your brand.
