“Our goal is to improve global health and activity rates by creating better, more social fitness experiences”, as fitness company Gixo states. Gixo is a subscription-based fitness that app can be installed on IOS or Android devices. The beauty of Gixo is that rather than having to buy a gym membership or own gym equipment, you can participate in classes anywhere you want, of which there are over 150 live classes each week that do not require any gym equipment. While you are in the live class, there will be a coach that is also connected, and will be able to guide you through audio or video. Additionally, other participants will be tuned in, and music will be playing to provide entertainment while you are working out. Because coaches can see how you do during the live exercise, they can give you feedback after the workout as well. Each class takes either 15, 25, or 40 minutes, depending on the activity. As for pricing, Gixo is very inexpensive compared to what a gym membership costs. While a high-end gym membership can cost up to $250 a month, a monthly subscription costs either $19.99 or $14.99, depending on if you are signing up for just one month, or a year. This low price point also means that one month of Gixo is less expensive than the price of one premium studio class. Not only that, but you are able to sign up for a 7 day trial for free, and be able to see if Gixo is right for you! So, not only is Gixo more convenient than going to a gym or using your own gym equipment, it is a lot more inexpensive.

One of the key components to the success of Gixo is the company’s care for quality and true care for the fitness of others. The coaches who work for Gixo are all trained, group fitness experts who are fully capable of leading live classes. Rather than having a huge amount of coaches, Gixo has a handful of passionate and hardworking coaches. Also, Gixo hosts different virtual programs. For example, on May 5th, 2018, you can join a virtual 5k or 10k event in which other teammates will also be participating in at the same time. While you are doing the run, the professional coaches will be able to see your progress, encourage you, and give you tips all while your running. The best thing is that all of this can happen while you are running wherever you want! The fact that coaches are able to see your progress and give you tips shows proof of how motivated Gixo is to helping you with your fitness.
