The online marketplace for personal trainers FitnessTrainer.com has launched in 27 metro areas since its inception six months ago.
A nationwide service, FitnessTrainer.com allows people to find and book personal training sessions with qualified local instructors who specialize in a number of disciplines, such as weight loss, strength and conditioning, kickboxing and boot camps. The company — whose largest marketplaces include Austin, TX; Houston, TX; Philadelphia, PA; and Washington, D.C. — has helped dozens of clients reach their fitness goals as well as grown the business of personal trainers located in these areas.
Following the success of its initial launch, FitnessTrainer.com has continued to expand its reach to every region of the United States, from the West Coast to the Southeast. The company continues to grow with the goal of onboarding more personal trainers and making it easier for those seeking training to find the fitness experience that meets their needs.
In the hopes of revolutionizing antiquated aspects of the fitness industry, FitnessTrainer.com seeks to make personal training more accessible, affordable and flexible. Personal trainers featured on the site choose their own rates, availability and teaching locations. Customers have the ability to compare a variety of trainers and select the one who suits their budget, schedule and fitness interests. A gym membership is not required to join FitnessTrainer, nor is a commitment to train, as the first session is risk-free and promises a full refund to the customer if dissatisfied with the experience. Customers can also train at their own pace and switch trainers at any time.
FitnessTrainer.com aims to help all people adopt healthier habits and obtain a better quality of life, no matter their age, gender or level of physical fitness. Company CEO and former college athlete Andrew Marcus said: “At a young age, I was fortunate enough to receive one-on-one private training. Thanks to my trainer, I was able to compete at the highest collegiate level and reach my goals on and off the court. We at FitnessTrainer.com believe that private training is best way for anyone to reach their fitness goals.”
FitnessTrainer.com is the second business venture of Andrew Marcus and Jesse Silkoff, co-founders of MyTennisLessons.com, an online marketplace for tennis instruction established in 2012. Named a promising startup by VentureBeat in 2013, MyTennisLessons has facilitated more than 10,000 tennis lessons nationwide and continues to grow and find success alongside FitnessTrainer.com.
