Adopt Healthy Lifestyle Using FITSO
Of recent people are getting health conscious and realizing the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle. However, with faster life and work, people do not get time to find the right trainer and like minded group to sustain their healthy routine. In a bid to aid these set of people, a group of IIT grads have developed an app –FITSO. Fitso allows its users to seamlessly connect, train and discover activities of their interest while on the go.
“Using FITSO, one can post their activity of interest and explore what other people and groups are doing in their close vicinity. The idea is to connect people to train and practice different activities together. In addition to that, we also help fitness enthusiasts find a right trainer and other service providers which is the requirement of fitness community today. Here Fitso allows its users to chat with service providers on real time basis for any query they have – in helping them with their day to day fitness routine“, said Mr Saurabh Aggarwal, one of the founders of FITSO.
Apart from connecting with other fitness enthusiasts, users can also read profile details such as qualifications, experience, achievements and charges of coaches, yoga trainers, physiotherapists, dietitians, fitness trainers, and masseurs and book sessions with them. FITSO is currently live in Delhi NCR, India, and plans to expand to other cities soon.
When asked about their idea of coming up with this app Saurabh said: “With a growing number of Indians willing to pay big bucks to look fit, the fitness industry is blossoming. Craze of running and healthy lifestyle in India is growing at a significant rate and we wanted to tap this growth and play a phenomenal role in the health and fitness sector.”
According to a FICCI-PwC report where the size of the wellness industry in 2012 was a mere 700 billion INR, by 2015 it is expected to reach a whooping 1 Trillion INR by 2015. And these numbers justify well enough why team FITSO decided to foray in this industry.
FITSOs founding team comprises of Saurabh Aggarwal, Naman Sharma, and Rahool Sureka, all IIT Delhi graduates. Naman worked at Zomato for four years before taking up the role of Technology and Product Head at FITSO. Rahul worked at Yepme and UrbanClap and is now the startup’s Marketing and Strategy Head. Saurabh worked at Flipkart in Business Development before quitting to pursue his passion for adventure sports. Apart from the three founders, the team consists of Ajitesh Abhishek and Kaushal Mishra.
