With Find Your Trainer, you can bring the gym to you

It’s not that you don’t want to go to the gym — it’s that commitment is really, really hard, right? Between the crazy workout class prices to the seemingly life-ending contracts that certain facilities will make you sign to the schlep that you’d have to make in order to get from the comfort of your home (or the discomfort of your office) to get your sweat on, it’s no wonder that working out feels like such a chore. Luckily, there’s a solution that will make getting or staying in shape more accessible, affordable, and convenient in more than 300 cities. Meet Find Your Trainer (FYT), the platform that’s bringing the gym to you. 

Key to FYT’s effectiveness is its recognition that there’s no one size fits all solution when it comes to your fitness. As such, the platform lets you find your own perfect trainer based on your goals, your personality, your lifestyle, body, location, and more. Better still, you can train just about anywhere — if you don’t want to go to the gym, the trainer will come to you. Still want a change of scenery? Head to a park. And with no monthly membership dues or even equipment needed, this tech solution is making maintaining your health easier than ever.

FYT claims that its prices manage to undercut personal training sessions offered by both gyms and private studios by up to 50 percent, with all scheduling and payments handled via its website or mobile app. All trainers have been fully vetted with background checks and certification verifications, so you can rest assured that you’ll be safe in every sense of the word.

And recently, FYT introduced a small-group and partner training option that makes it even cheaper to train with FYT. So if you’re looking to motivate yourself with your friends or family or just looking to save money, this newest option may be a good one for you. So whether you’re into boxing, CrossFit, Pilates, yoga, or just general fitness, use FYT to bring the workout to you.
