Experienced Full Stack Developer

About us:

We believe that fitness can be the catalyst for living your best life. That the act of working hard to achieve goals can be a lesson for the rest of your life. That the brain changes for the better when the body works. That happiness takes work – and sometimes that work requires just putting one foot in front of the other. And, we believe it’s always easier to take that first step when you’re surrounded by a supportive community. This is where another one of our core beliefs comes in – everything is better with friends. Relationships make us stronger in all aspects of life. We live our beliefs through the marketplace we are creating to connect athletes to their favorite trainers.
