Gym open, gym closed. Sports and outdoor activities are not allowed and now they are allowed. Covid-19 has made it a little harder to get fit with all of these uncertain guidelines. The inter-district travel ban has limited us to nearby fitness facilities, and peloton is expensive. Worst of all, it also makes it harder to keep fit, as most of us work from home, where snacks and refrigerators are just steps away. Houston, we have a problem.
Are you facing a similar problem? You are not alone.
Started at the time of the pandemic
Who would have thought starting a business during the pandemic would be a wise decision? SparkFit did it. SparkFit’s goal is to help fitness trainers find more customers and help people find affordable, accessible, and personalized fitness solutions.

It all started with Rez, the co-founder of SparkFit. “I had my own struggles with losing weight and shaping through work. Finding a reliable, affordable, and flexible personal trainer on the internet is a nightmare. After digging into it, I knew it was worth it and it would benefit many of us, ”says Rez.
