Customer Spotlight

Turning A Lifelong Passion into A Multi-Unit Fitness Business

Jordan Meinster is the CEO of PickUp Fitness USA Franchise Company. He built his fitness business from the ground up to provide the industry of pickup basketball with structure and stability.

Jordan Meinster has always had a passion for pickup basketball. “I’ve always played pickup basketball. I never really played organized or on teams or in high school or college. I would go to local parks or gyms or rec centers and join any games that were running,” Jordan says. There were many frustrations that came with him playing pickup games versus structured, organized basketball games; the courts were typically crowded and dirty and there was usually no structure to filter people in and out of games. So, Jordan had an idea to “create a business where it’s pickup basketball and you can still show up whenever you want, but it’s more organized.”

Product Updates


Do you want to know the average number of visits by your entire client base? How about the difference in average visits from your various membership options? Or even how often your 10-class packs visit your business each month. The updated Average Visits per Client module in iKizmet allows you to filter by the different revenue categories to see the difference. It also allows you to compare, via a trend line different packages or categories.

The updated module can still be found on the Attendance page, third module down.

iKizmet will now give you access to your Check-Ins data. This module will match the report already in ClubReady but with some visuals and a deeper dive into the hours of those check-ins. Ask your SAM/CES or iKizmet support if you would like to turn on this new page.
