    Good Speaker, she hit it on the nose. We need to get organized and start teaching a variety of intro and intermediate classes

    I'd like to hire a chick who codes. My start-up is a mobile app connecting fitness enthusiasts with local fitness studios and women are 80% of our target market so it only makes sense! I'm going to try and make it tonight but if you'd like to check us out I welcome any and all feedback. http://www.FitnessSuperPass.com Click "App Download" to be directed to iTunes or Google Play so you can download the free app.

    Hope to see or hear from you soon.

    Thanks!

      Hi Sean! Cool concept! I just downloaded the app and will check it out later. As a fitness enthusiast, this should come in handy. Quick Q- are most of the studios listed in the OC? Thanks! :D

      October 23, 2013

    • Sean G.

      Thanks! Yes, I'm going to make it and am looking forward to meeting you all. I will be fighting the traffic from Santa Ana, but sounds like it will be well worth the trip. Yes, most of the studios are in OC but there is a "Suggest a Gym & Win" tab on our site and in app which let's us know which studios to sign up first as we move into new markets. This also gives the person making the suggestion a chance to win free classes. You can also win free classes by sharing on social media and by using it at a variety of locations. ;-)

    Unfortunately, I have to work late tonight but I hope to catch the tail end and meet everyone then.

    I thought Espon LB will be provide us to use the space as long as we book the place early? They have a decent place and usually weekend is better for them to use the large room?

      Have they offered?

      August 28, 2013

    • DW F.

      Yes, they offered. We Lab's also offered their space. That said, Neither Epson or We Labs have computers available.

    Hey if anyone is interested in having this at the Long Beach Sea Base (has computers) or at the Cultural Alliance downtown (you will need to bring yours). I can try to set it up. I think there would be a small donation $5. to cover food and location donation.
