The newest way to find fitness classes has landed, and it’s helping people follow the fitness instructors they love.
A new website has launched which enables those looking to keep fit, to follow the teaching timetables of their favourite fitness instructors, and find new instructors based on the style of teaching they like.
Traina has been built to support the growth of the boutique fitness industry, where instructors teach across multiple locations but are currently limited in ways to benefit from the pockets of fans they create in each class.
It enables studios and instructors to drive more business, by eliminating this fragmented loyalty and bringing exercisers and instructors closer together.
Louise Pegg, Founder of Traina said: “Traina was born from the idea that everyone has an instructor they love, but doesn’t always know when, or where to find their classes, and how to find other teachers who have a similar style. Fitness is so personal, not everyone is going to like the same class. Couple that with the expense of boutique fitness and you have a potential minefield of unsatisfied clients.”
Traina provides instructors with a tool to sell more class spaces and so increase their earnings, with pay scales so often linked to the number of class attendees.
Instructors create professional profiles, including information about their teaching style, links to social media channels and videos to give potential clients a rounded view of what they could expect from a class. Their teaching timetable is listed and classes can be booked straight from the site.
“I think Traina is going to be very useful for increasing my earning potential with studios, and it gives me some independence to hold classes of my own without the additional marketing work that normally comes with them.” Helen Faliveno, Yoga Instructor and Content Creator added “I often get asked after class where else I teach and it’s so easy to refer them to one place where they can find my schedule, rather than listing loads of studios they probably won’t remember!”
Traina supports the pay-as-you-go class model, and the site features a full content management system for instructors and studios to set up and manage their own profiles, timetables and class pricing.
The website is now live at traina.co.uk
