Fitness aggregator Gympik gets double investment from RoundGlass Partners

The online venture curates fitness centres and trainers on its platform.

US-based VC firm RoundGlass Partners is doubling down on its investment in Gympik.com, an online marketplace for discovering fitness centres and gyms, a person aware of the development told VCCircle.

RoundGlass is investing an additional Rs 6.5 crore (approximately $1 million) in Gympik, the aforementioned person said on the condition of anonymity. The company had previously raised a total of $1 million in two tranches from RoundGlass.

The startup will primarily use the fresh funds to further develop its software-as-a-service (SaaS) product for fitness centres.

With the current fund infusion, the startup has raised about Rs 14 crore so far.

The Seattle-based venture firm first invested in Gympik in March 2016.

Previously, Gympik had raised $135,000 in seed funding from Capvent’s managing partners Tom Clausen and Rohan Ajila, as well as manufacturing firm Haldyn Glass. Healthcare accelerator Healthstart had also participated in the round.

Gympik declined to comment on the fund raise and RoundGlass didn’t respond to email queries from VCCircle at the time of publishing this report.

Bengaluru-based Gympik Health Solutions Pvt. Ltd was founded in December 2012 by Amaresh Ojha and Karan Malik.

Before launching Gympik, Ojha, an IIM-Bangalore alumnus, had stints at Sun Microsystems, Cisco and Intuit, while Mailk was employed with Firstsource Solutions.

The online venture curates fitness centres and trainers on its platform. It also offers a cloud-based software for fitness centres to make personalised offerings, and automate their management and quality assurance processes.

In addition, it offers separate mobile apps for customers and trainers. Customers can use the app to hire personal instructors for at-home training sessions, while fitness trainers can track client performances.

The company generates revenue from the leads it provides to fitness centres and trainers, besides monetising its software solutions.
