This NYC Fitness Startup is Changing How You Workout


Today, we are surrounded by startups across all industries. From scooter shares like Bird, to direct-to-consumer mattresses like Casper, as well as hundreds of others; the possibilities are endless. The fitness industry is even experiencing its own surge of startups geared towards enhancing the lifestyles of residents in metropolitan areas such as New York City.

It’s tough to walk from block to block in Manhattan without passing a trending well known gym, indoor cycling center, yoga studio, or boutique fitness center. Similar to restaurants, gyms and the like are everywhere throughout the city. So how does one distinguish the good, the bad, and the ugly, without much insight besides brand recognition, the storefront itself, or the company’s website?

There is Planet fitness, Equinox, New York Sports Club, Blink Fitness; yet, quality getting a personal trainer seems harder then ever and how do you know which one is right for you?  

The solution is now being rolled out by the Fitness NYC, a New York based startup that focuses on high quality fitness, and specifically on bringing the highest level of personal trainers directly to you. For New Yorkers seeking this balance, Fitness NYC is a great resource for tracking down the best personal trainers New York has to offer. They truly understand the importance of physical health and believe there should not be a one size fits all approach to fitness. They have made it their mission to connect New Yorkers to only the best, certified and licensed professionals.

It is extremely easy, there is no scrolling through hundreds or even thousands of bland profiles of trainers. And I don’t know who is good trainer anyway, for me to pick up a good one, is like trying to bet on horse at racetrack. I have no idea how and why one of them would be better, unless I was a specialist.

In 3 steps, you fill out your goals on the Fitness NYC site, get matched based on preferences and start your workouts with qualified trainer! I tried it and best part of the process was the trainer I got was phenomenal and really understood what I was trying to accomplish.  

Let’s sum it up, instead of looking endlessly for the right trainer, now you can quickly connect with Fitness NYC and get matched with a certified professional that fits your needs.

Fitness NYC removes the friction of finding the right trainer in what can take you hours or even days to search for one. Plus when you get matched, you know it will be a quality and certified instructor aligned well with your style and fitness goals.
