How many times do you tell yourself now is the time to lose weight? Often, you purchase a gym membership; commit for a few days, maybe even weeks only to become eventually indifferent. Lack of variety, personal training guidance and enthusiasm are some of the reasons why people don’t stick to their weight loss goals and the cycle of waiting for the New Year’s continues. With distressing media from various outlets which habitually states our increasing obesity rates in America, increased fast food availability and fitness industry’s somewhat mundane innovation in reaching out to different consumers, it’s about time we have something that can help tackle these issues.
Meet SportSetter, an I-Phone (Android and Web are in process of becoming available soon) app that strives to break the cycle of unfulfilling gym experiences by allowing users to subscribe to the application to discover new gym experiences: based on location, personal preferences and fitness goals. In this app, the best of your city’s sports venues, pop up training sessions, boot camps and other fitness activities comes together. From there, you have access to all of them, which is very convenient and a bang for your buck for those who don’t want to join multiple gyms due to multiple interests. Currently, Sportsetter offers more than 300 versatile activities in NYC and Helsinki via top notch gyms and instructors.
For New Yorkers, Sportsetter brings you amazing gyms, including: Revolve, Go Row, Crunch, Manhattan Athletic Club, Complete Body, Elixia, Reflections Yoga, Power Pilates, Reebok Sports Club, Sports Club/LA, Reebok Crossfit 5th Ave, UFC Gym, Pedal, Crank Cycling Studios, Asphalt Green, Clay Health Club and Spa, Ajna Dance Company, Gleason’s Boxing Gym, Krav Maga New York, New York Martial Arts Academy, Fitness Runs, Work Train Fight, Zumba, The Baseball Center NYC, Bikram Yoga SOHO, Skudin Surf, and +100 more.
Available only through SportSetter, the activities are exclusive trials. From a yoga class to a month long cross-training camp, they all cost one Sportsetter’s pass to access. Basically it works like this:
● Download the app
● Sign up and get a free pass
● Find an activity you want to try
● Activate a pass to it
● Go to the venue and check in with your activated pass
● Enjoy the experience
The down side is that you can try each activity of facility once; it’s all about trying something new, especially if you always wanted to try boxing, Zumba and CrossFit at least once in life. The good news is that it is all-inclusive with the equipment, including yoga mats in yoga, rackets in racket sports and much more. Although SportSetter is only in New York City and Helsinki, Finland, the company has big plans to launch in different cities.
