Know anyone pulling their hair out trying to manage a climbing gym? Or starting their own? Send them here.....

Rock Gym Pro - Climbing Gym Management Software
rockgympro.com

Built by me, after being frustrated by existing health club software packages. I own a climbing gym - Enclosure Climbing Center - and we use it to run and manage all aspects of our gym. The software is really a labor of love, but hopefully some other gyms might find it useful.

Sounds like you've got yourself a real "get rich quick!" scheme running there....hahah.

Good luck in getting your software out there; it would be pretty cool if it became widely used in rock gyms, not only to help you recoup on the expense in developing but....just because.

Is this the package that the CWA talked about during the conference in early Spring?

It may have been, as I was there discussing it. A health club software company had talked about doing a custom version of their product as well (just for climbing gyms), but they've scrapped that idea.

That looks fantastic Andy! I often find myself thinking about how to improve or create software packages like this, and it looks like you've put some great features in there.

It's the real deal. I spent 12 months developing it and use it at the busy commercial climbing gym I own. Hopefully other gyms will find it useful.

As promised, Rock Gym Pro is now available for free download. It is licensed under the GPL.

This software is the real deal. We use it to manage our busy gym (700+ members), including all aspects of customer management, POS, electronic billing via credit card or ACH draft, etc. It is designed to run in a networked environment and uses MySQL Server as the backend database.

I'm slowly building up the FAQ (available under Support) as questions are asked. So if you have a question, ask it!

I plan to post a video demo in a few weeks, for those that don't want to go through the trouble of installing the software.

Feature bump!

Rock Gym Pro now has X-Charge integrated for seamless point-of-sale credit card processing and one click billing.

And it's still 100% free (Rock Gym Pro that is, I can't help you with credit card processing fees!)
