Blocker, 29, trains up to 12 people through Fit X World. Because training is done virtually, he has trained people in places as far away as Japan. The client in Japan speaks English, Blocker said, but the two have never met in person.
“It’s been interesting,” Blocker said, as he also works as a freelance trainer in South Jersey gyms. “It has been beneficial. I must be on my A match.
Kason Jamison, 32, of Pleasantville, who co-founded Fit X World with two other partners, saw that the biggest problem with fitness training was planning, and that was before COVID-19 closed gyms.
“You can train at home, on vacation, or anywhere with a trainer for a fraction of the cost,” Jamison said of the benefits of in-app training. “One of the biggest issues for me growing up over the past 10 years in vocational training was the schedule. Many people who join a gym don’t come or come (only) for the treadmill.
Fit X World launched before the pandemic, but a new updated U.S. version of the app officially launched this month, Jamison said.
There’s no cost to download the app, but individual fitness training costs $ 25 per session, while a semi-private session costs $ 15, Jamison said.
Eglis Craffey, 45, of Mays Landing, is a serious bodybuilder who competes in the bikini division. Craffey has been a member of Atilis Gym for two years. When all the gyms closed due to COVID, Craffey spent around $ 5,000 to buy all the equipment she needed to build a gym in her home.
