More about Fitmo

We are a health marketplace that gives everyone online access to their own, real life coach.

Our beliefs

Today, we are witnessing a revolution in personalised health coaching. Millions of people are starting to use popular mobile health platforms, devices and apps. Whilst these are awesome helpers and motivators in the quest to get started, we have found a great need for a more supportive and personal approach. We believe that if you truly want to change behaviour with platforms, devices and apps, this can be reached with the interpretation and knowledge from a Personal Trainer in Your Pocket. Which is Fitmo!

What we are

Fitmo is a marketplace and platform that helps consumers find, and work with, real life coaches to help them reach their health goals. With our concept, we differentiate ourselves from existing health apps and wearables by adding a personal connection and human-to-human interaction with a professional.

For most people, a real personal trainer is too expensive ($25 up to $400/hour). Fitmo makes coaches affordable and available for everyone. We connect our clients to a coach which suits them and their health goals. Coaches educate and motivate their clients to help them reach their goals.
