Gympass Mexico launches virtual services with personal trainers


Don’t worry, we’re talking about:
Spanish (Spanish), too much!

Conxto – In many places, gym doors remain closed. But startup Gympass is finding other ways to expand its virtual services as users isolate themselves. In addition to offering online classes, he also added nutritional counseling, as well as remote therapy through Zenklub.

More recently, he added personal trainers to improve the user experience in Mexico. As a result, Gympass members will benefit from one-on-one sessions with their own coach up to eight times a month via the startup’s platform.

Without a doubt, this startup has been hit hard by the pandemic and has had the wherewithal to get creative and connect with other startups.

“Without a doubt, these times have been difficult, but they have also offered opportunities,” said Lucas Melman, CEO of Gympass Mexico.

“In our commitment to end a sedentary lifestyle, at Gympass we have had to reinvent ourselves with new options and new tools, and work side by side with our clients and allies so that users can continue to exercise. in a safe and healthy manner. “

Other fitness-related platforms, such as Peruvian Fitco and Chilean BoxMagic, have taken similar approaches by offering virtual classes to their users.

The question is whether these quick fixes are manageable during the pandemic or will users embrace home workouts in a post-Covid era?

As often happens, the answer is neither here nor there, but somewhere in between.

How will the fitness platforms work?

More than a gym rat eagerly awaits the reopening of their favorite fitness club. However, given the high risk of infection – with all the lovely body fluids floating around – it’s hard to predict when it will be and how safe it will be.

In all cases, the reopening of the gymnasiums will be done gradually, and with the appropriate hygiene measures.

Does this imply that everyone will get rid of the training platforms? Not necessarily.

They are extremely practical because they can easily fit into a person’s lifestyle and daily habits. Likewise, they appeal to users who don’t like group settings and just want to train at their own pace.

In addition, for users fond of online interactions, many Youtubers and fitness applications seek to rely on their virtual communities. In that sense, they add the social component to enhance the experience and there is definitely a market for that.

Ultimately, whether the gyms are opening their doors soon or not, Gym Pass has its bases covered on the “real” and virtual fronts.
