  1. INVITE: You can invite multiple members by distributing your custom gym sign up link via your preferred method (i.e. social media or email), and/or, invite individual members directly by entering their personal email address.

  2. QR CODE: In-person sign ups  can scan the QR code directly from your phone, or you can SCREENSHOT, PRINT AND HANG THE QR CODE AT YOUR GYM.

We have create created a social post and email template for you to help with your distribution.

You can see your GYM PASSWORD under the Administration tab within Chalk It. You can change this code at any time, just don't forget to re-print your QR code if you do so. 

 

Your Gym and Athlete's Previous Workout History

We currently support importing athlete data from Sugar WOD, BTWB, and Wodify.

Additionally, if your software platform provides an export of your gym's workout history you can bring that into Chalk It Pro.  Please note that as of the time of this post, SugarWod is the only platform that allows you to export all of your gym's workouts. (See instructions for importing below)

IMPORTING TRACK HISTORY: SUGAR WOD ONLY

Before you ask all your members to load their personal history into CHALK IT PRO, you will want to bring over all your gym's workout history. 

To to get an export of your workouts from SugarWod follow #3 in this LINK

Follow these steps...

  1. Download the export workout history file from your previous provider onto your desktop.   If your previous platform exported all of your tracks into one file you will want to separate the data into different files. 

  2. Open the Administration tab within your Chalk It Dashboard

  3. Click the Tracks tab

  4. Click Edit on the track that you want to add your history into

  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the 'Import Historical Wods into Track' section.  Press Choose File and select the file you saved to your desktop (from step #1)

  6. Press the Import button.

  7. You're all set.  Wait for an email from Chalk It Pro with the import results.

We're here to help. Send us an email at support@chalkitpro.com with questions.
