Your Personal Trainer Is Going Virtual

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Your personal trainer is going virtual.


A Nashville-based fitness tech company is poised to change the way people exercise with the launch of a new platform called GymCloud. officially launches it’s online personal training software today. The app enables fitness professionals to train clients online, making personal training more convenient and cost-effective for trainers and their clients alike.


Trainers can create custom workouts for clients, track their progress, and message them in real-time to offer coaching, encouragement, and accountability.


GymCloud was created by Kenton Boutwell, a Certified Personal Trainer and former gym owner who realized how hard it was for fitness professionals to make a sustainable income.


“Many trainers and studio owners don’t get paid vacation time. They don’t get sick leave. They’re barely scraping by,” said Boutwell.


Since GymCloud doesn’t require physical 1-on-1 interaction, trainers can take on more clients at lower prices. GymCloud also makes personal training more affordable for consumers who may not have the funds for typical 1-on-1 training sessions, which often cost between $50 and $100 per hour. Consumers have access to customized workouts within the app that are accompanied by detailed how-to videos for individual exercises.


One trial user, a former Marine named Roy, lost 70 lbs thanks to training provided through the app.


The Nashville GymCloud Team worked remotely with Roy, who lives in Los Angeles. The team planned workouts around Roy’s busy schedule, tracked his progress, and kept him engaged through the app’s messaging and notification features.
