It started with two ambitious entrepreneurs and one big idea in Cape Town.
Tyrone Lasarow and Mark Fawzy, had a history of clever apps and slick start-ups like Boxchamp, and their goal: to end boring gym sessions and to add a little adventure to the way you exercise. But their bold idea needed time and partners to develop properly. Fast-forward a few years of hard hustle, and the next big step was taken, and this time, it was thanks to a famous Liverpool football star and investor.
This collaboration produced Flexi., a revolutionary app that brings some much-needed disruption to the South African training scene. This smart pay-as-you-go class booking app lets you try something new, when and where you want. Flexi. wasn’t created to end gym contracts, but rather to add to them – to provide versatility and to empower you, the user, to have fun while getting fitter. Flexi. offers you the chance to try something exciting and different: from climbing gyms, beach yoga, and CrossFit classes through to nailing a new Personal Best on your 5km running time, taking on a frenemy in a boxing ring, or trying the latest outdoor obstacle course – these new challenges don’t just provide much-needed variety, they also help make you a fitter, happier, more well-rounded athlete.
Using Flexi. is dead easy. Download the app, register as a user, and link your card. Then you can use the slick Geolocation feature to find the gyms and fitness partners nearby that Flexi. has partnered with (there are already over 50 options around South Africa, and growing). There are also regular specials and deals available through the app. You then choose the class you want, scan the QR code in the gym or studio, and you’re sorted. Are you ready to upgrade the way you train?
