From MMA to meditation, we’ve created a fitness marketplace where a traveller can quickly and conveniently find a local gym, book a membership for the precise time they are visiting, and be training in moments. We’re challenging existing pricing models to create a mutually beneficial platform for the traveller to avoid the excessively priced Day Pass rates, and for the gym to access a supplementary revenue stream where they collect at a rate of about 80% more than that of their local members. Completely bootstrapped, Gym Nomad has been growing at an average of 15-20% MoM and now expanding to more cities in Europe.
