If you live in a major city, then you know just how expensive it’s becoming to get a good sweat in. The typical cost for a 45-minute, packed-to-the-brim class (where you can kiss the idea of getting any personal attention from the instructor goodbye unless you’re a serious front-row regular) is $34, ClassPassjust upped its monthly membership price from $99 to $125 and personal training sessions, well, those are only for models and celebrities, right? Maybe not.
NYC’s newest workout app, TroupeFit, is here to disrupt the fitness status quo by making at-home personal training more accessible than ever before. Here’s how it works: Download the app, enter a few questions about yourself (height, weight, favorite exercises, fitness goals), select whether you’ll be working alone or with a partner, then book a time for a trainer (you’ll get their bio to help you pick the best fit) to come meet you at home (even if home is a teeny-tiny studio—if you can roll out a yoga mat, they’ll make it work), all equipment provided, for a 45-minute yoga, pilates or general training session. At $49 for a private workout and $85 for a two-person one, it’s just slightly more than you’d spend on a Soul-Cycle class with shoe rental for total VIP treatment. Count us in.
