Within 8 months of Launching, Fitness Management App Attracts Thousands of Users, Rolls out Internationally

SAN FRANCISCO (May 2020) -The Bright App, a leading fitness management app that helps personal trainers and boutique studio owners conveniently manage their clients and run more profitable businesses from their smartphone, today announced that it is expanding its mobile app to English-speaking countries, worldwide. The company also announced that it has rolled out a Zoom integration feature enabling trainers and fitness instructors to offer virtual training sessions right from the mobile app.


“The coronavirus has had a crippling effect on the boutique fitness industry,” said James Zhang, co-founder & CTO of The Bright App. “While we’re all working from home and social distancing, people still need to work out, perhaps now more than ever before. We quickly built and deployed this feature to help trainers and operators combat the impact the closures have had on their businesses and to help them stay connected with their clients.” 

On a mission to solve the fitness industry’s most time-consuming challenges and inefficiencies in scheduling and billing, the free iOS and Android apps organize and track client sessions, automate billing, and ensure payments are received on time through Stripe™. The app’s patent-pending intelligent scheduling system effortlessly handles schedule changes and cancellations saving studio owners and operators hours of administrative work. 

The Zoom integration and international roll-out comes just eight months after launch, and a tremendous amount of user growth. Thousands of top personal trainers, fitness instructors, studio owners, and their clients are using The Bright App to improve their business efficiency and to increase client retention and income. Users can even manage studios and multiple gyms with monthly memberships, day passes and group classes with unlimited members, instructors and managers, all while on the go. 

“We've received such positive feedback from our users around the country in the short time since we launched, “said Nerissa Zhang, co-founder & CEO of The Bright App. “As a fitness instructor and gym owner myself, I deeply understand the pain points our customers must overcome in order to improve efficiency. This new feature and expansion are only the beginning. In the coming weeks we will be turning on a revolutionary marketplace feature that is completely new to the industry.” 

Free to download, the mobile app is available today in the U.S., Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand and has no contracts or monthly fees for trainers or their clients. Studio owners and trainers pay a 4% platform fee to The Bright App only when a session payment is collected from their clients, in addition to a Stripe™ processing fee.
