Why we do it and how?

Hello there.

Thank you for visiting our website and taking an interest in Buzvil.

Let us tell you a little about why we created Buzvil.

Buzvil is a service, which has been developed to make group fitness more accessible to everyone and make working out fun. As the world is becoming more and more health conscious, we too have been working out for quite a while now. However our exercise routine was no longer intriguing and the drive to workout was not what it used to be.

The solution was to start looking for a more fun and engaging way to exercise, which led us to group fitness. We had often seen group fitness sessions in parks and always wondered were we could find them. Immediately we identified a problem, which was that searching and finding group fitness was very time consuming and inconvenient and also realized that there was no platform for personal trainers to post their classes on.

Once we had scoured through the Internet, we took part in a number of activities ranging from boxing all the way up to yoga and discovered something very exciting, which would bring new life to our workout. We realized that group fitness is the most enjoyable and rewarding method of exercising and became addicted to the intensity and camaraderie that it provides.

Unfortunately we also realized that our account balances were shrinking, because the classes on a regular basis can be very expensive. Considering that most of us were just out of University, money was a scarce commodity. A solution was urgently needed, so we looked for gyms and other services, which offered group fitness memberships. Sadly we found that the joining and monthly fees were too high for our budgets. We also realized that paying for a service upfront, which we weren’t sure we could fully use, given our busy schedules, was not a smart and viable option.

This inspired us to come up with a concept, which gave access to group fitness and also required no monthly upfront payments or obligations of any kind. We calculated, speculated and researched, asking as many people as possible what they would like to have, what they wanted and what they needed. Buzvil was born.

We are very proud of our creation and will work tirelessly to help everyone have fun in their workouts, while giving customers the freedom and flexibility to be active on their own terms.
