Why Choose WrestlingIQ Over Mindbody?
First of all
A quick nod to the Mindbody team
They've built a great product to help salons, spas, and gyms manage clients and promote classes.
If you're here to understand the difference between WrestlingIQ and Mindbody, or looking for an alternative for your wrestling team, you're in the right place.
What is the difference between WrestlingIQ and Mindbody?
Sure, there are features and product differences between the two companies (which are detailed further down this page if you’re interested), but the biggest difference is in our blood—which has been spent in wrestling rooms for decades.
Matt Sencenbaugh, the founder of WrestlingIQ, started wrestling at six and ended his career by wrestling for four years at Stanford University where he studied computer science.
So if you're a wrestling club, know that WrestlingIQ is made for you—not yoga studios or other sports—to help you grow and manage your club team with software purpose-built for wrestling.
The Top 5 Reasons Why Wrestling Teams Choose WrestlingIQ Over Mindbody
Performance pricing instead of a monthly or annual fee that drags down your balance sheet
Wrestling is seasonal, even if you run a year-round club. Why pay the same amount for your software when you have less wrestlers during the summer? And why should you be forced to pay more every month when you hit some arbitrary member count? With WrestlingIQ you don't have a monthly cost to run your team management software.
WrestlingIQ adds a 2% fee to the parent bill so that you don't have to pay anything out of pocket. All you pay are the card processing fees through Stripe (typically 2.9% + .30). With performance pricing our incentives are aligned as well—when you make money, WrestlingIQ also makes money—meaning we are incentivized to help your club grow.
You charge $100 for a camp.
The 2% WrestlingIQ transaction fee is added to the bill for a total of $102.
Parent pays the $102 and $2 is automatically collected by WrestlingIQ.
All you pay is the Stripe transaction fee of 2.9% + 30 cents.
Online registration for camps, seasons, events, and recurring memberships
WrestlingIQ lets you set up online payments and registration—tailored to the different types of sessions wrestling clubs run—but flexible enough to support any business model. Online registration functionality includes customizable registration questions, form e-signing, an easy way to collect USA Wrestling info, and more.
Wrestling teams need to be able to communicate clearly with their coaches, parents, and wrestlers.
WrestlingIQ provides a real time calendar, and messaging, so you can keep your team in the loop. Powerful automations—such as messaging groups that auto-add members based on rosters—save you from group message madness.
Club wrestling teams use the WrestlingIQ Kiosk to check in wrestlers at the door for practice.
With roster filters, configurable check-in questions, USA Wrestling alerts, and bluetooth scanner capabilities, the WrestlingIQ Kiosk is a check-in system designed for wrestling.
Video + Stats
WrestlingIQ video and stats lets you record a match and take stats at the same time with the iOS app.
After upload, leave notes and feedback for your wrestler to review remotely.
WrestlingIQ has taken the management of our wrestling club from a several hour a week job to a couple of hours a month. The efficiency in which the program operates for the cost is remarkable. Having the ability to communicate, through messaging, stream registration and payments, as well as get USAW card information and get liability forms signed is convenient and user friendly. WrestlingIQ has been a game changer for our club.
