Why is it easier to get a pizza to your house than a personal trainer? Finding and booking a trainer online is just a hassle and we're here to solve it.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 02, 2015
It's the new year. Everyone wants to get into better shape and the easiest way to do that is to get a trainer to help. But finding and booking a personal trainer online is a hassle. The whole process is filled with hurdles that make it unnecessarily hard to do. Searching for a personal trainer online typically leads to either finding gyms that require long contracts or wonky trainer sites that all lead to phone calls, emails, site visits, contracts or a "fill out this form and we'll get back to you". That's why we created Trained.io; we aim to take all the friction out of the process of finding personal fitness instructors and make it as simple as possible for anyone to book a trainer right on their smartphone or computer.
The way it works from a user's point of view is: the user goes on the site, inputs their zip code and they all the trainers that work in their area. They then pick the one they like, click book a session, and pay online. That's all there is to it. It's like booking a house on Airbnb or ordering a food online. "Why is it easier to get a pizza to your house than a personal trainer? Finding and booking a trainer online is just a hassle and we're here to solve it, without forcing our users to sign two-year contracts or only working out at one specific gym or any of that non-sense," says CEO Jay Millerin.
For trainers it's even better. Any certified and insured trainer can create a profile on the site. They control their profile, price, where and when they train. Gyms can take up to 80% of all the earnings of a trainer, but with Trained.io, the trainer can keep a much larger share of their earnings.
Trained.io is launching in New York now and will be opening in new markets in early 2015. We urge anyone who wants to get fit in the new year to find the right personal trainer for them on the site – or any personal trainer that needs wants more private clients to sign up.
Happy Training and a Happy New Year!
