OpenTable revolutionized the art of booking restaurant reservations and now SweatGuru will do the same to fitness classes. SweatGuru, a marketplace that connects consumers with fitness classes, today launched in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
SweatGuru is the brainchild of cousins Jamie Walker and Alyse Mason-Brill.
“SweatGuru was born out of the need for a better way to manage my growing bootcamp business, take
reservations and stay in touch with clients,” said Jamie Walker, SweatGuru co-founder and CEO. “As a
fitness consumer, I also wanted an easy way to discover, reserve and pay for classes in my
neighborhood. SweatGuru is built by fitness pros for fitness pros. We will start by growing our network in
San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles, and look forward to expanding to other markets soon.”
SweatGuru features a variety of fitness classes and opportunities, including personal training, spinning and yoga. After signing up for a membership, consumers are able to search the database to find the best classes in their area. From there, they can book and manage their reservations. In turn, they receive rewards for using SweatGuru. The rewards can be exchanged for fitness-related prizes, like gift cards to top retailers like Lululemon.
For fitness professionals, SweatGuru makes it easy to manage their classes and reservations. SweatGuru offers an option for fitness organizations to manage their entire booking system on the website.
“SweatGuru is the only easy, affordable way I have found to manage my dance business and grow my
client base,” said Minila Shah, founder of Ajna Dance in New York, New York. “I love that listing classes is
always free, but the real value is in the $19 per month package that helps me make more money and
save time managing my schedule and payments. The SweatGuru team understand my needs and has
built a solution that I rely on every day to run my business.”
