Product

GymPact is a mobile fitness startup that conquers excuses with $$$ as a motivator!

Members make a Pact of how many days a week they want to exercise, and how much they’ll put on the line to pay if they DON’T get to the gym. If they meet their Pact by checking in at their gym with our iPhone app, they receive cash rewards, paid for by those who didn’t exercise.

Why Us?

We are currently an 11-employee, seed-funded startup backed by Khosla Ventures (Keith Rabois), Techstars, Mike Hirshland (formerly Polaris) and Katie Rae (Managing Director, TS Boston). Because we’re so early stage, you will have a huge impact on our product, strategy and the lives of our 450,000+ customers.

We are changing lives, according to our user reviews and the Guardian, which said GymPact "gives you hope for the human race".

Unlike other startups, we pay attention to revenue. Users have put $15M+ on the line so far to motivate healthy behaviors.
