Mindbody named official business software sponsor by the IDEA Health & Fitness Association
November 14, 2016

International fitness body the IDEA Health & Fitness Association has named leading cloud-based business management software provider MINDBODY as its association’s official business software sponsor.

As a result, fitness seekers worldwide will now be able to easily access and book appointments with personal trainers, group exercise instructors and other fitness professionals that utilise MINDBODY’s fitness and wellness software.

Fitness professional listings on IDEA’s FitnessConnect now include a badge clearly identifying those that utilise MINDBODY’s software. Additionally, these profiles now feature a direct link to the fitness professional’s schedule with booking options powered by MINDBODY.

The partnership with MINDBODY increases the usability of IDEA’s FitnessConnect, already the world’s largest fitness professional directory, connecting more than 16 million consumers to more than 250,000 fitness professionals with credentials verified by the top 200 fitness certification and training bodies.

Announcing the link, IDEA Chief Executive Peter Davis stated “we are thrilled to work with MINDBODY as they are a preeminent business software solution for fitness studios and fitness entrepreneurs.

“Their best-in-practice booking technology, when paired with IDEA’s FitnessConnect professional directory, makes finding, selecting and booking highly qualified fitness professionals easier than ever, helping us to continue on our joint vision to Inspire the World to Fitness®.”

This relationship represents the first time IDEA has included a third party in FitnessConnect.

MINDBODY Vice President of Marketing Amanda Patterson added “we are excited to partner with IDEA, an organization that shares our commitment to connecting the world of wellness.

“The addition of booking links on IDEA’s FitnessConnect allows more people to easily book and pay for fitness services that improve their wellbeing, while delivering success for our clients.”

MINDBODY will also be the exclusive business software sponsor of the 2017 IDEA® World Convention.
