The problem

The problem I had was typing every program up on Google Sheets and printing it off every so often for clients/athletes. The main criticism of any other app I used was the lack of variables I could monitor such as lifestyle habits, load, and analysis to break down and give greater insights to colleagues, clients, managers, and athletes.

The time I spent typing programs, attaching video links, and separately doing the same for nutrition was poor time management. Storage became an issue for my first premises because getting folders for everyone’s programs on-site, storing the folders as client load grew was a nuisance due to space. There were often times when clients and athletes would accidentally take programs home so on their next visit we would have to go off memory of previous lifts.

The greatest issue was not putting more time into growing my coaching business, I also couldn’t sell the physical programs I had so they ended up being thrown out.

The solution

RYPT is one of the reasons I now have my own gym and witnessed a significant growth in revenue and size allowing me to find a new location and scale-up. It’s allowed me to gain greater credibility with physiotherapists, teams, athletes, and clients through word of mouth. Why? Because I took advantage of using the reports to manage players’/clients’ well-being. As a coach, I have a duty of care and with features like well-being, nutrition, and workout monitoring to provide along with my coaching experience highlight that trait.

I have saved hours out of my week programming, saved my clients from injuries, facilitated greater compliance and adherence to training, and consolidated something special at Meta Strength and Conditioning.

What we love

What gets measured gets improved. I have crafted this saying into my core philosophy as a coach and RYPT exudes this characteristic. A testament to RYPT is that the guys are a phone call email or text away, something that I have never expected or experienced in my 10 years as a coach. They respond within minutes and care about the coaching career. They really have built something special and are always adding new features to the platform to make my life easier.
