Send Me a Trainer was created by the two brothers Bary and Muhssin El-Yacoubi. Bary, who is a professionals fitness trainers, was working in a big fitness chain in Virginia, the USA about over a decade ago. He noticed that despite its more than 9,000 members, the gym was visited regularly by only 3% of the subscribers. Bary also saw that many of his clients often cancel or postpone their sessions because they wouldn’t have time to come to the gym. Then an idea sparkled in his head. He asked a client if he would go to their home will make any difference for them to keep up with the activity. That turned out to be the first in-home client he started to train. Soon his other customers followed, confirming the brilliance of his thought.
The success of the concept since 2007 of providing fitness training for the clients in the comfort of their home became the base for creating the Send Me a Trainer brand, that Bary set in motion together with his brother Muhssin. Attracted by the opportunity to take control of their life and achieve financial success, they both set to work hard building up the needed application for the management and expanding the number of trainers they will work with. Send Me a Trainer app was launched in 2018 and quickly gain popularity in the state of Virginia.
Two years later Send Me a Trainer has branches in another two US states and already looking for international expansion.
The explosion of the global pandemic of COVID19 brought many changes in our lifestyle. More and more people rediscover the convenience of doing things from home, including training. That creates a market niche for an in-home fitness training service. Send Me a Trainer has already successfully implemented system and a high-quality product that is appealing to more and more customers.
