“Technology has made our lives easier but it can also lead to mental overload and less physical activity”, says Serge Brabander, CEO of OneFit. “We want to turn the tables and use technology to help our members stay fit. It is exciting to see so many OneFit members discover new workouts, connect with workout buddies and meet the expert trainers we represent. The financial support of both INKEF and Peak Capital will enable us to bring the sweat and the joy of OneFit to many more European cities and to make further steps in creating ‘One FitPlanet’.”.
