Founded in 2014, fibodo (find it. book it. do it.) is an award-winning booking management platform which enables sports and activity professionals to easily connect with and manage their clients. Its aim is to empower trainers to save time, reduce hassle, earn more and ultimately grow their businesses.
fibodo was set up by former PGA golf professional Anthony Franklin, who has over 25 years’ experience in sports and business in helping to grow numerous organisations across the UK, Europe and Asia. Anthony founded the business to address an issue he noticed throughout his career. He understood that, while sports and fitness professionals have a wealth of knowledge in their field, they often don’t have the tools required to book and manage clients in the most efficient way. When running a time-based business, efficiency is key – fibodo works as a means to maximise productivity.
With that in mind, fibodo provides PTs with the solution to manage their schedule, significantly cutting the time they waste on admin – enabling them to earn more or to improve their work-life balance. With fibodo, payments are taken via the platform, with no hidden charges or terminal fees. It is the first service of its kind, allowing trainers to organise bookings and take payment 24/7, reducing no-shows and eliminating double-bookings, whilst providing the tools to grow their businesses.
The real-time availability planner in fibodo makes it easy to keep track of appointments, adding services and promoting availability to clients. This ease-of-communication also negates the impact of cancellations, as PTs can quickly notify clients of last-minute spaces.
fibodo’s partnership with Trustpilot enables PTs and other time-based service providers to quickly build trust with their clients. After each booking, clients are automatically sent a request to give their trainer a rating and review. The PT then benefits from a stronger reputation and can improve their Google rankings.
Courtesy of partnerships with AoC Sport and FitPro, fibodo also offers a free e-learning training course to personal trainers and fitness professionals, in order to equip them with the necessary knowledge to run a successful business – including the development of skills such as finance management, marketing, projects and communication.
The collaboration means that students at the 239 AoC Sport member colleges receive free access to fibodo’s ‘Grow Your Coaching’ CIMSPA-accredited e-learning materials – helping tutors to educate and inspire their students in best-business practices.
fibodo is the headline partner of Elevate 2019, the UK’s largest physical activity trade show, in May. In addition, fibodo have also created the visitor scheduling App used by delegates, exhibitors and speakers at the show. During the event, fibodo’s leadership team will be launching its new product: Booking Hubs. Booking Hubs enable gym chains, leisure centres and NGBs to get brand consistency, transparency over bookings and rich data – providing a new revenue stream, minus the admin
