Disrupting fitness


From transportation to finance to the hospitality industry, tech startups like Airbnb, the Lending Club and Uber are disrupting traditional business models and reinventing the way we do things. But who would have thought that the good ol’ gym would be disrupted as well? Fitmob, a startup from San Francisco, is doing just that. Fitmob works by connecting people through local, indoor and outdoor group workouts with high-quality trainers. Through Fitmob’s mobile app and website, fitness enthusiasts can find local workouts in a park or in an indoor gym. Clients simply sign up, pay via credit card and attend the class. Fitmob offers as many as 30 different workouts per week, giving its clients a wide range of activities to choose from. Anyone can join the workouts and the first week is free for new members.

Founded by Snapfish CEO and Mayfield VC Raj Kapoor and Ness Computing co-founder and former Palantir Engineer Paul Twohey, Fitmob is the darling of VCs and has recently announced that it raised an additional $5 million from a consortium of investors. You can read about the funding here.
