SparkFit - This pandemic-born startup helps you lose weight with workout that fits all your needs

Gaining weight in MCO? This pandemic-born startup helps you lose weight with workout that fits all your needs. 

Gym open, gym closed. Sports and outdoor activities are not allowed and now they are allowed. Covid-19 has made getting fit a little harder with all these uncertain guidelines. Interdistrict travel ban has restricted us to only nearby fitness facilities and Peloton is expensive. The worst of all, staying fit also becomes harder with most of us working from home, where snacks and evil fridges are just a few steps away. Houston, we have a problem.

Facing a similar issue? You are not alone. 

Launched in the time of pandemic 

Who would’ve thought launching a business during the pandemic is a wise decision? SparkFit did. At SparkFit, their goal is to help fitness trainers find more clients, and to help people find affordable, accessible and personalised fitness solutions. The sooner they enter the market, the more impact they can make to the fitness community. 

It all started from Rez, SparkFit’s co-founder. “I myself have had my own struggles with weight loss and getting in shape due to work. Finding a reliable, affordable and flexible personal trainer on the web is a nightmare. After deep diving into this, I knew this is worth pursuing and brings benefits to many of us,” says Rez. 

How SparkFit helps you lose weight?

By providing you personal fitness trainers. Not just any trainers, but trainers that are near you, able to come to your place, condo gym or gym near you. Trainers that can work with your timing if you prefer in the evening or weekend. Best of all, trainers that are wallet friendly and won’t cost a fortune. 

Personal trainers help to personalise workout according to your body and fitness level. Every session is monitored and guided so you have the right workout posture, not injuring yourself in the long term and also keep track of your fitness goal. All SparkFit trainers are certified by reputable fitness academies. Some of them are even nutritionists or physiotherapists so it can even help you with diet plan and recovery workout from medical conditions.

On the payment side, SparkFit protects your money. SparkFit will only release your payment to trainers based on conducted sessions. This helps to hold trainers accountable and give financial assurance to trainees.

With all these in place, trainees can now focus on their fitness journey without worries and let SparkFit take care of the rest.

Gaining customer’s trust

After 6 months since launch, SparkFit has garnered a good reputation and traction among the fitness community. With 75 trainers across 8 states in Malaysia, trainees have been getting real results from the trainers through personalised training. “Ash customised a calisthenics training program for me and in just one month of training, I have seen major improvement on my personal health, physical strength and overall body physique." says Adrian, one of SparkFit’s satisfied customers.

On the trainer side, the demand is steadily growing by 20% month on month. Till date, SparkFit have over 350 training enquiries, more than 200 purchased sessions online, over RM20K (GMV) Purchase and much more offline. By having this growth, trainers have been able to sustain their income by getting clients from SparkFit. Ash, one of SparkFit trainers saw this opportunity and upgraded to a higher subscription package in hope to take his fitness business further. “I've been getting sooo many inquiries for personal training using SparkFit lately. For trainers, I highly recommend using this platform," says Ash. 

“We believe that personal fitness training is essential for a healthier , fitter and productive Malaysia. We are committed in finding ways to help trainers in these tough times and also to help trainees in their fitness goals by providing training that fits their location, timing and budget,” Pete, co-founder of SparkFit

Fit Now, Pay Later

We know personal training isn't considered cheap, but it's the right step to have a workout that fits uniquely to us. Many of us are financially impacted by the pandemic and we are more careful with our cash flow. That’s why with Fit Now Pay Later, we made personal training payments manageable. So instead of paying for the full package upfront, we can now pay by installments and go ahead with our training and healthier lifestyle. 

Future growth 

Currently, SparkFit is the top 11 in Alpha Startups Digital Accelerator 2021 organised by 1337 Ventures and selected for Cohort 5 of Virtual Global Accelerator Programme organised by Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre (MaGIC).

SparkFit is also growing its partnerships within the health and wellness industry. Healthy food, nutritionist, physiotherapy and mental wellness. All these collaborations aimed to offer a holistic healthy lifestyle, not just solely for losing weight but for an ongoing and sustainable healthy lifestyle. 

In the year 2022, SparkFit is planning to expand to Singapore and release tools such as Workout Progress Tracking and Data Analytic Products to help trainers better manage their clients.
