How To Set Up PocketSuite as a Fitness Trainer

Hey there, Fitness Pro! So glad you decided to join us here at PocketSuite. Here are a few things you can do to jumpstart your app:


1. Detail your services or classes

Add all the fitness services offered from one-on-one personal training sessions to packages and memberships to group classes. That’ll be your first step. Go to settings > services > tap + and go from there. You’ll want to tap save! You can take the same steps for classes.

Protip: Everyone loves a small number of choices and an odd number- try groups of three. Add categories and three services to each one. We’ve found that most people pick the middle option, so price it accordingly!


2. Add clients

Add clients by tapping the client icon in the top right corner of the app, go to settings > data import to add from your phone list, or email us your contact list to

Protip: You can customize info such as the client’s credit card or a discount amount.


3. Enter your payment information

Set up your bank account right away and put a card on file in settings > payment methods. Whether your clients pay via classes, deposit, or appointment, you’ll be all set for your daily payout, which happens at noon Pacific time.

Protip: Check out our cancellation policy feature- it will charge clients if they cancel within a certain time frame. 


4. Test an appointment with a trusted client or friend

See how easy scheduling your first appointment is by testing with a friend. Go to the calendartap + > schedule client

Protip: You can always change how the client is notified by editing the Send Via field- even “don’t notify” at all.


5. Process a payment

Don’t stop now- there are ten ways to process payments on PocketSuite. 

Protip: Our most successful fitness trainers make heavy use of our automated subscriptions feature!
