Did you and your valentine make a fitness goal for the new year? Have you always wanted to indulge in the services of a personal trainer but never quite had the funds? We've discovered an option that might just be the solution—besides being a potentially rad gift option.
Find Your Trainer, the largest marketplace for finding at-home or in-gym personal training, recently launched in LA—after a successful startup in New York—and now you can pair up with your honey (or a group of couples, a gang of friends, etc) for Partner and Small Group Training, a service the company offers that in addition to saving you cash (as compared to one-on-one services) lets you get fit in your local park, beach, in the privacy of your home, or wherever you two feel most comfortable getting your sweat on. And the best part? It can all be handled in a jiffy via your mobile device.
So whether you want to try out the service by just purchasing a single session for you and your S.O., or fully commit to a subscription (which saves you 10% per session), booking one of FYT's experienced trainers might just be the best gift for those looking to get fit or in need of an extra bit of motivation.
