There is no easier way to get your sport online.
What we help to solve
Think about how easy it is to book a hotel, cinema tickets, a table at a restaurant and order a taxi but how complex it is to book into your community sports club.
As a provider, you'll know that telling people about your sessions, keeping track of who is coming along, and then collecting cash and reconciling it afterwards can take just as long as delivering the sessions!
Online booking systems up to now have been something of a dark art; either designed for one-off activities or large cumbersome platforms that require substantial time and money commitment to use. Makesweat is already in use with amateur and professional organisations all over London, and providing substantial benefits.
How we solve it
Makesweat.com gives local activity providers the same great online functionality as big gyms, and reduces administration effort.
And because we’re tied into London Sport and Get Active London, listing on Makesweat will automatically publish your activities on Get Active London – think how your organisation could benefit from all the brand new customers who can suddenly find you!
And the best part? You don’t need to spend any vital cash on upgrading your existing website. If you don’t have a website, we can even build one for you*. Makesweat is zero setup cost and zero support cost – what’s more, mention Active Choice or imin to get Makesweat free for the first three months.
