Why Switching to Walla Significantly Benefits Your Studio and Clients

Raise your hand if you’re dealing with everything from old data to tech outages and unanswered support issues! The fitness industry has evolved over the last few years, and if we've learned anything, there's no better time than now to evolve. To make a change. An opportunity to reevaluate business operations, goals, and the software that supports everyday studio interactions. Now it's time to consider this your lightbulb moment!

At Walla, we're disrupting FitTech by creating a software experience built to eliminate the tech headaches you're experiencing from your current studio management provider. We're allowing you to instantly run your business with educated ease—and give your staff and clients a user-friendly platform that empowers confidence. But can a studio and gym management software actually do this?

It's possible when you think outside the industry standards. And it starts with time-saving features, an intuitive, modern platform, and a personalized migration experience that makes switching a breeze!

Transferring years of studio data with no downtime.

We understand that your data is valuable. It's the core of your fitness business. Your client stats and studio information, including credit cards, plan purchases, memberships, instructor pay rates, and class history, remain secure when you move to Walla and can be easily transferred to our platform. Just ask Meg at YogaOne, who had 14 years of data! With Walla, you don’t have to spend endless hours exporting your studio's database—we’ve streamlined the whole process for you! By automating data migration and building features to capture all plans, past visits, credit card data, purchases, and billing details, we not only “clean up” outdated information but safely move data that applies to your business operations. We’ll also help you say goodbye to hundreds of duplicate clients!

“It was super important to us that no data was lost during migration—but at the same time, we wanted to eliminate duplicated and outdated data for a better studio owner and staff experience.”

Matthew Ausonio | CTO | Walla

Hands-on migration experience, start to finish.

Switching software can feel daunting (or scary), but our studio partners can attest that it’s actually much easier and stress-free than what they anticipated. At Walla, we believe making a change should be liberating—giving you the freedom to revitalize your business for a better tomorrow. When you migrate to the Walla platform in a few weeks (not months), it’s not just about getting your data moved over; it’s about providing you with hands-on tools and an onboarding specialist dedicated to your transition. From an in-depth checklist to an easy-to-understand migration guide, our team will make sure you are set up for success at every step, continually sharing knowledge without any studio downtime. You will also receive staff training videos, real-time onboarding calls, customizable client communication suggestions about your software switch, and a site audit, so you’re ready to go live. And since Walla’s platform is so intuitive, it will take no time for your staff to learn the backend—and your clients to book and buy classes!
