Choosing a platform to manage your fitness business can be difficult with so many different options out there, but don’t worry! We are here to give you all the information you need to make the right decision for your business.



Today we’re comparing Fitune and Uscreen, some of the best platforms in the market. So let’s get started!

1. Price

Price is an important factor for many business owners. There’s no denying that you get plenty of features with both platforms, but the value proposition and price is very different. 


When comparing both platforms it’s clear that Uscreen with a starters plan of $99 per month is by far the most expensive option. The basic Fitune plan on the other hand starts at just $9.99 a month, giving you everything you need to get started and scale your business. 


Besides Uscreen charges an additional $0.50 for every subscriber you have and also a 5 % for transactions like renting a video on demand, raising the already high price. Once you start scaling your business, this is where Uscreen makes serious money! 


With Fitune there are no extra charges, what you see is what you get. You don’t need to pay extra besides your plan, unless you want a storage add-on. Fitune does not charge any transaction fees.



2. Features

The type of fitness business that you run is crucial when comparing the two platforms on features.


For starters, Fitune is a so-called ‘’Hybrid’’ solution, meaning you can manage both your virtual and in-person classes through the platform. 


Uscreen does not offer in-person venue management

With COVID restrictions lifted in many areas there’s now an opportunity to get back to in-person while keeping the virtual offering up as well. This means that you need a platform that allows you to manage both. Uscreen offers many great features for your online fitness business, but nothing for in-person (yikes).


On the other hand, managing your in-person activities with Fitune is just as easy as the virtual sessions. You can create multiple locations, have different drop-in prices for them, offer memberships and packs only for in-person activities and much more.Giving you full flexibility to run your business on your terms.


Live streaming

One of the features that’s available on all Fitune plans is the option to offer live streaming classes through any live streaming platform you want. Their Zoom integration is most popular, making your life extremely easy through automated communication. 


Live streaming options are not included in the basic Uscreen plan. You need to make a huge jump in price in order to have live streaming, paying $499 a month!! otherwise you are stuck with video on-demand only.


With Fitune, you get to choose the solution that works best for you, that means that you decide the platform you want to use for live streaming and for on-demand content. Want to store your videos directly on their system? Great you can do that, but you can also use Vimeo to showcase all the content you may have already uploaded or you can even use YouTube and get unlimited storage. It’s all up to you! Meanwhile at Uscreen, you must use their proprietary expensive solutions.


Fitune just offers more flexibility, at a fraction of the cost. Fitune = value



Conclusion

Fitune is built to make running and growing your fitness business a simple and stress free experience for an affordable price. It takes just a few minutes to set up and start selling. You can find how to get started in this blog.


Uscreen is a good solution for big brands that just want to offer on-demand video content and don’t mind paying a couple hundred dollars per month for the platform.


In case you’re still in doubt, Fitune offers a full month free trial so you can explore and experience the platform yourself. Creating an account is simple and no card details are needed. So don’t worry about getting charged at the end of your trial, no strings attached ;)
