GoSweat launch strategic growth strategy for 2018

GoSweat, the online sports marketplace that allows users to easily discover and book sport and fitness activities near them at the click of a button is preparing for nationwide launch.

Following the launch in December 2017, GoSweat offers users complete flexibility, no membership or strings-attached, and connects users with sports providers throughout the UK. From Silent-Disco Bootcamps to Candlelit Yoga, GoSweat lets users search for exactly what they want, when they want it, where they want it – changing the way we discover sport forever.

Since its launch just three months ago, the company has enjoyed continued growth demonstrating both the power of the platforms smart software and its unique user experience. As a result of its early success and surge in active users, GoSweat is now set to further expand it’s nationwide offering with more than 500 sports partners scheduled to join the network by April 2018, and the company also has plans to launch an app for the service later this year.

GoSweat’s journey started whilst co-founder Alex Hind (25) and Stephanie Newport-Booth (25) were on vacation from their roles as Aldi Area Managers.

For the entire vacation Alex and Steph couldn’t stop talking about exercise, but more specifically about how people found it. Having successfully completed the Aldi graduate scheme, the pair immediately launched GoSweat, and share a vision of a world where anyone can book any sport, at any time.

From January 2018 The Company appointed a third co-founder, and CTO, Kent McClymont, a former GB Paddler and ex Director of Engineering at Beamery. The company’s marketing proposition has also taken a step forward with the appointment of a freelance PR representative to provide a national PR function and bolster their existing marketing activity. The company has a growing team and will be moving to a new head office in Victoria in March.

Alex Hind, GoSweat Co-Founder and CEO said: ”Having felt first-hand the frustration of having to manually compare search results or rely on word-of-mouth to find ways to exercise, the process felt completely outdated, especially when compared to the travel, beauty or take-away industries, which have all seen marketplaces transform their user-experience.

“We’re confident that GoSweat will plug the gap in the fitness industry, allowing users to simply search for the best, most local sports and fitness activities to suit them. With 1,000’s of weekly activities to choose from, there really is something for everyone.”

After impressing judges with a clear business proposition back in September 2017, GoSweat was crowned as the Manchester winner of the Virgin Media Business Voom Pitch competition. The win saw the co-founders receive £5,000 towards their business, as well as the opportunity to meet with Sir Richard Branson to discuss ideas and plans of expansion over brunch.

The online proposition has already captured the attention of GPs who firmly believe that it could not only be extremely beneficial to their patients, but a way of reinventing how people see sport and fitness.
