WeGym | Democratising Personal Training

WeGym | Democratising Personal Training

Joshua Uwadiae By Joshua Uwadiae

We're making personal training accessible to everyone by connecting two local, like-minded people heading in the same direction with their health to share the cost and experience of personal trainers.

This project was funded on 11 May 2017!

We believe personal trainers are the solution to helping us become happier, healthier and more likely to live better. The problem is they're treated like a luxury. With an average cost of £50 an hour in London, most of us will never have the opportunity to use a trainer. We believe in a future where you never have to train alone. That there's always a trainer and a friend to support you, to keep you going when it's hard - which is why we believe wegym should exist.

What we'll deliver:

  • Deliver PT Sessions
  • Flyer Marketing
  • Facebook Marketing
  • Purchase Media Equipment
  • Purchase T-Shirts

Why it's a great idea:

Hi I'm Josh, I started WeGym and I'm a new years resolution survivor. I was able to take control of my health through having a workout partner. The motivation of having someone to keep me accountable was extremely empowering. It was until I changed jobs and gyms I found myself back to square one, struggle to motivated myself. I was never in a position to afford a personal trainer and my experience taught me that the best chance we have for living healthier is alongside other people. Which is why I believe connecting people to personal trainers gives people the best chance of living happy and healthy - we're going to make personal training for everyone - not just the rich.

Steps to get it done:

  • Deliver Personal Training Sessions
  • Local Awareness and Advertising
  • Merchandise to help spread the word
  • Re-Design our Outdoor Space
