Pay as you go fitness app’s virtual personal training offering continues to gain steam with the addition of Blink Fitness
NEW YORK, May 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FlexIt, the pay as you go fitness app, last month announced a new offering that lets individuals access 1-on-1 live personal training from their favorite fitness brands, all from the comfort of their own homes. In the few weeks since its launch, FlexIt’s Virtual Personal Training™ has gained steam with broad user activation and new fitness club partner additions.
Today, FlexIt announces the addition of national partner, Blink Fitness, to the Virtual Personal Training platform. David Collignon, SVP of Operations at Blink Fitness says, “Bringing accessible and valuable fitness content to all is a huge point of passion at Blink, we’re excited to reach more people and expand the range of our capabilities with FlexIt.”
In the last few weeks, FlexIt has also added small group training to the program, enabling individuals to add their friends to training sessions. The result has been highly lauded by users as providing social connection during this phase of social distancing.
Virtual Personal Training™ with Blink is now available on the FlexIt platform, anywhere, any time. Blink’s world-class, accessible “Training for everybody” approach has been successful in bringing quality personal training to its users at affordable rates.
FlexIt is looking forward to continuing to grow its offering with new additions over the coming weeks. In early May, FlexIt plans to launch a purpose-built mobile app with integrated video chat, making the Virtual Personal Training™ process as seamless as possible.
CEO and Founder Austin Cohen has said that “we see a huge opportunity in the virtual PT space. We believe our relationships with users and fitness clubs affords us a unique opportunity to offer value to both groups. We have heard from personal trainers who are appreciative that we have enabled them to go back to filling their unused time, bringing in revenue and helping their clients to stay fit.”
FlexIt’s platform enables fitness clubs to reach new users, and to keep its existing members engaged, especially in the face of the challenges of COVID-19.
