Fitune vs Mailchimp

Fitune is aimed to bring all your business elements—bookings, classes, memberships—under one easily accessible platform. Mailchimp will provide marketing solutions that can hardly satisfy the needs of a fitness business.

This guide helps you understand why Fitune might be the better choice for a comprehensive, industry-specific solution. With the right tools, you can go from market research to opening day and beyond with ease.

The image contains a screenshot of a customer review from a person named Tom, dated August 17, 2020, with a 5-star rating. The review is titled "An amazing booking system" and reads:  "I considered many different booking systems for my fitness business - but none of them offered the simplicity and user clarity that Fitune offers. I run a small Pilates study and it's truly is an all-in-one solution for my business. My customers love it and it has definitely helped my increase my membership sales and one-off bookings."
