They say “sitting is the new smoking”. We’re here to get more people moving! Gympass is a discovery platform that empowers companies to engage their workforce in physical activity by providing access to the largest global network of workout facilities. With a single monthly membership, companies can help employees find an activity they'll love among more than 600 activities across the U.S., Europe, and Latin America. Our goal is to multiply the number of people exercising at every company to create a healthier and more engaged workforce Founded in 2012 and headquartered in New York, we have a growing team in 30 offices around the world. Our mission is simple yet ambitious: defeat inactivity, and we know the only way to get there is together, partnering with companies, gyms and having the best talent. The health and wellness concept started with our Co-Founder and CEO, Cesar Carvalho, back in 2011. While working as a consultant at McKinsey & Co, he found it difficult to find reasonably priced gyms while traveling for work. One year later, as Cesar was juggling an MBA at Harvard Business School (HBS), he found himself thinking about fitness options that were flexible, affordable, and, especially, fun. He left HBS and took the first steps towards what eventually became Gympass. The momentum continues to grow today with thousands of members and over 30,000 fitness facilities worldwide. Cesar lives out the Gympass mission by playing tennis every week, and discovering new activities no matter how busy he gets.
