Esquared, a revolutionary new on-demand fitness app, will launch in Australia this September, ushering in a new era of fitness. Offering greater flexibility and variety, Esquared allows users to experience a wide range of fitness classes and gym sessions at leading venues across Sydney, with no membership fees or contracts.
Sydneysiders can now sign-up for exclusive early access to the Esquared app via www.esq2.com.au and receive $40 free credit to use for any workout.
Esquared was founded in the UK by former accountant turned pro-athlete Eleni Plakitsi, who saw a gap in the market for an app-based fitness platform that offered a ‘no strings attached’ pay-as-you-gym approach allowing users to train on their own terms.
The question is how does this fair up to the other fitness apps that has come and gone. Others charged a hefty fee per month, whilst others the range of classes available were limited to some suburbs.
This app claims to deliver a seamless user experience that makes it simple to search, book and pay for a class or session on the same day, the next day, or up to 30 days in advance. Users can choose nearby gyms and available classes or search by area for real-time options.
Launching in Sydney this September before rolling out in Melbourne and Brisbane later in the year, Esquared has already signed on over 50 partner gyms that cover a broad range of training disciplines.
Esquared partner gyms and studios will list specific classes and time slots, allowing users to access the gym floor or join classes. This could range from a session at Beach Fit in Bondi Beach or P.E Department to a 45-minute workout at Infinite Cycle in Surry Hills to a barre session in Sydney CBD or Double Bay.
“Esquared allows you to search and book local, high quality fitness classes and the hottest boutique gyms across the length and breadth of Sydney”, says Plakitsi. “Fitness is at the heart of the Sydney lifestyle, so we want to make it easier than ever to unlock all the best gyms and studios in the city in one simple app”.
Ex-Wallabies player Drew Mitchell has come on board as General Manager for Esquared in Australia. “I experienced a lot of different training sessions during my rugby career which has really shaped how I exercise daily. With Esquared, the commitment-free nature of the app allows you to try new things, test out new gyms and adds a lot of variety to your workout. You can start your day with a boxing class near your home and end the day in a yoga studio near the office”.
Session and class prices are all set by each individual venue in real-time, based on availability and demand. Esquared is free to download on iPhone and Android. For more information and exclusive early access.
Will this app help motivate me to train, shred the weight, be part of a community? Time will tell and will share with you when I find out a bit more.
