New alternative fitness app offers different fitness classes on demand
In modern London’s fast-paced environment, trying to carve out the time for exercise can be something of a motivational chore — when your options are a trip to the gym or brushing elbows in your local park (assuming you have one, of course), it’s easy to let wellbeing fall by the wayside. That’s where Viva la Vita, an app that helps discover (and book!) the best of the capital’s alternative fitness apps comes in.
When 28-year-old entrepreneurs Styliana Vasili and Konstantinos Aristotelous tried to tackle the problem of fitness in London, what they found was a whole host of rich, vibrant, exciting and quirky fitness classes. Whether kayaks, ravercise, chessboxing, or aerial trapeze, it turns out that if you dig deep enough, London’s got classes for pretty much everyone.
With their research done, they decided to try a few of these new, exciting alternatives. App founder Kostas said he discovered some incredible classes that he never even thought existed:
“After some searching, I discovered an amazing class on Krav Maga, which is an Israeli martial art employing various defence techniques. It’s taught to the Israeli military so it’s quite hardcore but incredibly enjoyable!”
Even though the classes are available all around London, it took some stringent Google searching and noticeboard-scouting to find them. That’s when the London based duo decided to found Viva la Vita – an app that curates London’s most exciting alternative fitness classes into a simple app where you can pay in two taps .
Launching on iPhone, Viva la Vita features 10 – 15 classes in a handpicked shortlist of the best fitness classes happening today, tomorrow, and the rest of the week in London. Once booked in a few taps, the ticket is stored within the application and used as a reference and admittance – no phone calls or printing needed!
Viva la Vita is available for download now on the App Store, at: http://appstore.com/vivalavita
