The new FitGrid app for clients allows you to access millions of new potential customers through our discovery, recommendation, and referral engines. The app’s built-in Rewards program also rewards clients for returning to their favorite studios, helping you achieve true client loyalty and cultivating in-app communities.
To get the benefits of the FitGrid app for your studio, you must participate in the Rewards program by creating a special pricing option inside MINDBODY. This pricing option will not be available to the public–the FitGrid app will use it behind the scenes.
In this article, you’ll learn how to set up the FitGrid Reward Class pricing option for new clients referred by the FitGrid app that have never visited your studio before.

Step 3: Additional Things to Know
- For classes, this setup uses a feature called third-party discount pricing. To keep your consumers from booking outside of their required classes, this feature will automatically refund the pricing option when clients cancel out of the class—be it online by the customer or within business mode by a member of your staff. The pricing option will also be returned automatically if you reassign payment to a new pricing option or choose the "Make Unpaid" option from the Account Details screen.
- Once a pricing option is set as "Third-party discount pricing" it can't be changed.
