NEW YORK, New York. — September 18, 2017 — Netpulse, the #1 provider of mobile apps for health clubs, announced today important enhancements to its partnership with eGym, the leader in digital fitness and training. In the deepening partnership, John Ford, CEO of Netpulse, will additionally take responsibility for driving the growth of eGym’s North America business in a joint sales partnership. The sales partnership extends to Europe, where the eGym team will further support Netpulse’s rapid global expansion. A new product integration plan will see eGym’s rich digital training tools embedded directly inside the Netpulse mobile apps.
“On the product side, we recognize how important it is for digital training to be deeply integrated with a gym’s mobile experience,” said Philipp Roesch-Schlanderer, CEO of eGym. Moreover, our new open platform approach eGym ONE creates interfaces to more and more devices from other manufacturers. As a result, the training area networked by eGym continuously increases. As we’ve worked closely with John and the Netpulse team over the past year, the alignment between our companies has grown even stronger, and we’re excited to have John lead our North America growth.”
“In fully aligning our efforts, we are forming the most powerful open, independent cloud ecosystem in the industry with the participation of dozens of partners and over 12,000 fitness facilities. Our fully integrated features address the most important problems facing gym owners globally,” said John Ford, CEO of Netpulse. “It only made sense that we also support each other on the business and operational side and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to personally drive eGym North America’s growth alongside Netpulse.”
Joint eGym and Netpulse sales in North America, led by Ford, will begin immediately and development is already underway on the updated, fully native mobile product integration.
