Most people search on Google when they are looking for a Yoga class, a gym, or other workout activity in their area. Not only can this be time consuming and tedious, but it's also just not fun. As Co-Founder & CEO - Omar Haroun and Co-Founder Simon Hau showed us in the January edition of Philly Tech Meetup, they have an awesome app to solve this problem. Sportaneous is a fun and simple app that helps you search for workout activities, classes and overall fitness style programs that you are interested in joining or learning more about.
As Simon showed the app, Omar explained that without a gym membership you can quickly book a fitness class or other workout activity on Sportaneous. The app caters to your favorite types of classes, and the interface allows for a seamless and painless experience. You can sort the classes by distance, price, even pull up a map and find classes that way. It's also very social in that your friends who use the app will show up in the results as well so that you can join them for a class. That's actually a pretty cool feature, instead of looking at strangers' reviews you can just see what classes your friends are going to.
Your credit card is stored in the app to make joining a class just a click away. Once you purchase a class, you can share it with your friends on various social networks. They are live in New York right now and have around 10,000 users. They plan on expanding to other areas soon. Overall, this is a much needed up in the fitness space, since most apps help you keep track of your fitness, this helps you find the right classes for your needs. The interface is clean, modern, colorful and very intuitive. If you are in the NYC area, I say give it a shot, and then leave me a comment to let me know what you think!
