There’s an awesome new fitness trend that is making the ability to take a bunch of classes at different gyms more readily accessible. As someone who has lived in an apartment complex with a gym for the past 3 years, I find it hard to want to pay for a gym but at the same time, feel like I’m missing out on some of the fantastic classes that are available for gym-goers. Enter fitmob.
Founded by Snapfish co-founder and entrepreneur/VC Raj Kapoor as CEO, tech guru and martial arts champion Paul Twohey as CTO, and worldwide fitness expert Tony Horton, fitmob is a San Francisco-based company that is described on the their website as:
“An authentic fusion of fitness, community and technology. fitmob combines the power of community with the convenience of a mobile platform to create a fun, affordable and rewarding workout experience in your neighborhood. It’s a new fitness movement with YOU at the center.”
They have a huge array of classes ranging from cardio and strength to barre, yoga, TRX, and more. For just $99/month, you’re able to attend classes with over 75 studios and trainers to choose from as many times as you can get your butt to class! In addition to their Passport program, they’ve also introduced MobTribes, described as on their website as:
“…a shared personal training that’s fun, affordable and all about results. You’ll be matched with a top-rated personal trainer to lead workouts at a convenient location picked by your MobTribe of 4-6 friends.
Your MobTribe will meet twice a week in a 6-week program designed for results! We’ve done plenty of research and studied the science of shared group training.
With MobTribes you’ll get personal attention, nutrition tips, daily activity tracking and off-day workouts, without the price tag of personal training.”
I had the opportunity to attend one of their workouts, Weapons of Ass Reduction [love the name!], last week but unfortunately couldn’t work out the commute with my work schedule. I absolutely plan on giving this a go and checking out a bunch of studios in SF, along with some of their own workouts, in the near future. How could I pass on the opportunity to push my limits? Eeeexxactly!

Food for Thought
Do you prefer indoor or outdoor workouts?
I received the opportunity to take part in the fitmob campaign through my ambassadorship with Fit Approach. All opinions are my own.
Any workout but if given the choice outdoor. Especially now with the fall weather.
Recently I’m all about indoor group classes. LOVING yoga so having something new to wear to it would be fantastic!
you know i’m an indoor workout girl!
I prefer outdoors, but with the winter coming that may change.
I love outdoor workouts! Basic Training in San Francisco is one of my favorites 🙂
I love running outdoors, but also love group exercise classes and completing workout DVDs at home.
I like outdoor workouts more than indoor workouts!
I’m pretty sure I’ve never actually worked out outside! I’m a total indoor girl!
I love outdoor workouts! Perfect way to enjoy nature!
I like indoor workouts
I just recently purchased two pairs of Athleta pants. I have always drooled over their items online, but had never ordered because I wasn’t sure of the sizing. Then we moved to a city where there is an actual store- talk about excited!! I am in love with everything Athleta even more so now. 🙂
I would love to workout outdoors more often, but it has to be just the right weather! I’m pretty picky about that 🙂 So I typically do all my workouts indoors!
Definitely like outdoor AND indoor workouts. Probably outdoor more though
I am on an indoor workout kick right now! Zumba and Bodypump are my faves!
I like indoor workouts like barre and TRX.
I like outdoor workouts because I am a runner and love the sun!
I’m more of an indoor workout lover since I love yoga and spin classes so much!
I prefer indoor workouts because you don’t have to worry about the weather.
outdoor whenever possible!
I like both for different reasons! But If I had to choose, it’d be indoors with lots of equipment

Both! Definitely depends on the type of workout. But if I could enjoy perfect weather and a bike ride every day, I’d probably take it 🙂
I love indoor for group classes, but nothing beats a run on a beautiful day!
Outdoors for running, but indoors for others–or else I get too distracted!
Living in Phoenix, indoor exercising is really key – especially during the hot summers!
I LOVE outdoor workouts but since it’s getting cold here I’m moving to the indoors!
Outdoor but living in Minnesota I usually end up indoors or have that as my back-up plan!
Outdoor workouts all the way!

Usually outdoor – hiking and jogging through new neighborhoods. I also love yoga.

I am a ym person due to best for me schedule wise but if I lived near a great hiking area – would rather do that for my cardio!
It’s nice to mix it up!
I love both indoor and outdoor workouts, it just depends on what the workout is and what mood I’m in 🙂
Agreed! They’re both good.
I prefer indoor workouts. I get exercise induced asthma when outside!!
Oh no! Stick to inside 😉
