Q: I set up an account on the app using my Total Fitness membership details and I can’t log in.
A: Make sure you’re using the email address and PIN number associated to your Total Fitness membership. If you’ve forgotten your PIN, click the forgotten PIN link on the opening screen of the App and this will redirect you to enter your email. You will need to enter the email address that is registered with us otherwise we can’t send a new PIN to you.
Q: I’m moving and changing home clubs. Will I lose all my fitness activity?
A: No, you won’t lose your fitness activity. Keep tracking those workouts! Be sure to contact your club or Total Fitness member services via the support section and your home club can be changed. This means you’ll be able to see your new club’s group exercise classes schedule and book a class.
Q: How do I contact Total Fitness to ask questions about the app, ask about my membership, report a fault at my club or make a suggestion?
A: Easy! Tap the main menu icon in the top right of the home screen and choose “Support” – from there you can ask billing questions, report damaged equipment via the “Fix IT” option and make suggestions.
Q: How can I customise my account on the Total Fitness app?
A: In loads of ways! Add a profile picture (or import one from Facebook), add some detail in the “About Me” section, change your units of measurement, add your height and weight… you can even tell us when your birthday is!
Class Booking Questions
Q: How do I book onto a class or cancel a booking?
A: Tap the “Find a Class” tile and all the available classes at your Total Fitness over the next seven days will be shown. Select the class you want to book, hit “Book Now” to save your space and tap “Add to Calendar” to add a reminder to your device’s calendar. You can also select “Cancel Now” on the same page to cancel your booking.
Q: The app says there are “2 Spots Left” but I only have the option to join the waiting list. What am I doing wrong?
A: This is because other participants who joined the waiting list before you have been notified of availability and they have priority before these spaces become available for others. You may be notified several times via email that a space is available, so please keep a look out for these as places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Also you can check your App under “My Account” tile for Waiting List status classes.
Q: I’ve selected a class to book but I only have the option to “Call for Info”. Why is this?
A: Some of our classes are booked through a third party or are part of a pre-booked course, such as Junior Swim or Kids Karate for example. Tap the “Call for Info” button and you’ll be put straight through to your club.
Q: I’ve selected a class to book but I’m taken to another website when I hit “Book Online”. Why is this?
A: Some of our classes are provided by a third party supplier or are part of a pre-booked course, such as Becky Adlington Swim Stars or Water Babies for example. Tap the “Book Online” button and you’ll go straight through to the relevant website to find out more and book.
Q: I can’t book my partner or children onto a class – why is this?
A: Linked Members, such as partners and children on a family membership, can’t be booked onto a class using the app. They can however be booked on using the Total Fitness website at www.totalfitness.co.uk/bookings
Workout Related Questions
Q: How do I log a workout?
- You can enter a workout manually by selecting the “Workout” tile and “Manual Workout”. This will allow you to pick the type of workout and track the duration, distance, and calories burned.
- You can also use “xCapture”. This allows you to take a picture of the display on cardio equipment and it will log the workout for you.
- You can also use a number of third party apps and trackers such as FitBit and MyFitnessPal. The full list of these can be found in the "Connected Apps" tile.
Q: How do I edit/delete a workout?
A: You can edit your workouts in the “Workouts” tab. You can delete workouts from the “Workouts” tab from the home club web portal.
Q: I don’t workout on cardio equipment but want to track my workouts. How do I do that?
A: No problem, use the “Manual” entry feature under “Record a Workout” and enter in your workouts by day. You can also link third party tracking apps and devices to your account under the “Connected Apps” tab to automatically track workouts.
Q: I signed in the cardio equipment before my workout but I don’t see it under my workout history. What do I do?
A: In the “Record a Workout” tile, select the “Missing Workout” option. Enter your workout stats and give as much information about the cardio equipment as possible. A message will be sent to the Netpulse support team to look into the issue.
Note: you can only add one “missing” workout per day.
Q: What is the difference in a “Missing Workout Entry” and a “Manual Workout Entry”?
A: Entering a manual and a missing workout look very similar but have different functions in the app.
Using the manual workout feature is great way to enter workouts you wouldn’t otherwise be able to using a xCapture or third party trackers (i.e. weightlifting or playing football).
The missing workout function is a way to enter a workout that did not make it into your workout tab from a third party tracker or a blurry xCapture photo.
The rules of many challenges (coming soon to the Total Fitness app) do not allow manual workouts to be counted, whereas missing workouts will be counted toward a challenge, but you can only enter one missing workout per day.
Q: What if I don’t want my workouts highlighted on the social feed?
A: Please go to the “Side Menu” and under “Privacy” you can control your settings.

Q: Third Party Linking and Workout Duplicates
A: If two third party apps are linked to each other and linked to your Total Fitness app account you will see duplicate workouts in your workouts tab because both sources will send data to the app.
