The booking module is fairly simple and user friendly.

Maybe there is something I am missing, but other employees have shared that same feedback. It would be nice to have the system synchronize with other software we use.

Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

  • Great resources for all kinds of fitness activities
  • Great features for race day
  • Easy to use navigation
It is a great thing to use if you are training for an event - especially if that event is using ACTIVE Network to track the participants. Either way, it has great resources for athletes. On race day, it is great for spectators and people wanting to track a participant's progress from afar.

Good for online registration of community programs; the sort of class which is once a week.

Poor for tracking classes where there might be assignments or homework.
