Avigo personal trainer booking app launches


While there are plenty of fitness apps that allow you to manage bookings conveniently on your mobile, how many of them actually work with your busy schedule? Avigo allows you to book on-demand personal training or group classes by searching for an instructor according to your location, time and category (fitness, yoga, combat or running). Like an Uber for fitness, the app alerts relevant trainers of your request and pings you when the most suitable trainer has been selected for you. If you’re a strong believer that the coach makes the class, you can also search through instructors’ profiles to select specific areas of expertise, qualifications and even read customer reviews.

Available on iPhone and Android.
