Startup Localfit introduces travel-oriented fitness membership to 5,000 health clubs with help of FinTech giants.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C, Sept. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today, technology startup Localfit launches their revolutionary

health club membership option. This travel-oriented fitness membership allows for access to more than 5,000 premier health clubs class-based studios while travelling away from home.

Acting as an inexpensive travel alternative to the popular fitness app ClassPass, Localfit uses similar technology to cinema disruptor MoviePass allowing for rapid growth and seamless club integration.

Localfit memberships are available for as little as $5.95 per month using the special promotional code LAUNCH-50 at checkout. With over 5,000 facilities available to Localfit members, Localfit grants members more exercise options than any "big-box" fitness chain.

Using proprietary mobile, GPS and financial technologies, Localfit partnered with FinTech titans Mastercard and Marqeta for unlimited, rapid scalability. Members can easily find in-network health clubs and studios using the Localfit app, and then use their Localfit all-access card for seamless entry.

On the heels of an extremely successful beta program implemented in the first half of the year along the East Coast, Localfit founder Rob Gilliam anticipates enormous support and demand for this exciting membership option.

"Our emphasis on quality control has resulted in a membership that offers access to the very best health clubs and studios across America," said Gilliam. "The value Localfit offers is amazing, some of these clubs would cost over $50 for a single-day pass without a Localfit membership."

Unlike MoviePass, Localfit's travel restrictions and ability to negotiate lower rates at high-use clubs has resulted in a business model that is both sustainable and profitable while still delivering members incredible value.

With launch underway, Localfit is currently looking to add additional health clubs and studios and is exploring the addition of experiential fitness excursions for greater appeal to a millennial audience.
