CoverMe Fitness launches in Australian market

CoverMe Fitness, the studio management app for the fitness industry, has launched in Australia, with industry veteran Tony Zonato as managing director for the region.

Designed for the fitness industry by fitness professionals, CoverMe is revolutionising studio management by providing a comprehensive platform for recruiting, recognising, rewarding and managing group exercise staff – all in one user-friendly app.

In less than a year, the app has been adopted by over 100 clubs and 4,500 instructors across the UK, including global brands like Virgin Active. CoverMe also has an impressive 100 per cent retention rate and 97 per cent class cover record.

Zonato joins CoverMe from Body Bike Australia, where he was GM of operations & sales.

With two decades of experience in the sector, Zonato has a wealth of knowledge as an instructor, personal trainer, group exercise manager and master trainer. Additionally, as the founder of the GroupEx Podcast, Zonato understands the challenges of studio management and the latest industry trends.

He said: “I want to help maximise the potential of group exercise; it’s the most important tool venues have for retaining members, but only when it’s firing on all cylinders.

“CoverMe plays a vital role in customer satisfaction allowing clubs to run a dynamic group exercise schedule delivered by professional, skilled instructors, thereby minimising class cancellations and inadequate instructor cover.

Zonato added: “The Australian fitness industry has been crying out for a solution like this for some time. I’m looking forward to engaging with cub owners and instructors, understanding their challenges and solving one of their biggest problems.

“Statistics show that group exercise managers and club owners spend on average 4.6 hours per week managing timetable changes and instructor cover. Reclaiming this valuable time will allow them to focus on business operations and elevating their offer.”
