Through In2’s software, fitness/sports facilities will be able to organize, implement, manage, track and report group fitness classes such as Yoga, Trampoline or HIIT, all while giving members the freedom to enroll in any class and engage with the class’ coach and attendees through In2’s seamless app!

Nowadays, amid a circulating pandemic, doing sports, staying healthy, in shape, and adopting a healthy lifestyle is not an option anymore, regardless of one’s age. Many Fitness Facilities offer a range of training and fitness programs tailored for the elderly that include minutely chosen classes and sports. By that, seniors will have the possibility to opt for an active lifestyle instead of a sedentary one, all while tracking their health and enjoying ultimate peace of mind.
8- Women-only gyms
It is noticed that, due to the gender-gap issue, women stepping into their fitness journey and joining gyms face many hurdles that make their path intimidating or even daunting. Being the case, women-only gyms are gaining popularity and effectiveness. On In2, women can register in a gym where women only are enrolled, for them to lower their “gymtimidation” levels, exercise confidently and freely, and engage with their peers.
