Sweatabl was founded in 2017 as a passion project. We noticed that gyms and trainers were putting together these amazing free fitness classes and downloads but unless you knew where to look, they were difficult to find. So at first, we thought Sweatabl would be a blog that compiled the free fitness classes happening around Toronto.
But then we thought "why stop there?"
Sure, looking at a website is useful. But being able to have this data on our phone with the ability to filter, sort and actually sign up for these classes in a matter of seconds would be EVERYTHING. So that's when we began the 20 month long development phase in order to launch on The App Store on July 6th, 2019.
Honestly guys, we haven't been this excited for an update since preparing our launch! This next update will let Sweatabl not only help you find free fitness classes & downloads, but also show you all of the intro offers and deals at studios near you.
Imagine taking a walk to your local market and receiving a pop up on your phone telling you about a brand new gym opening up on your block and its' massive grand opening sale! You then tap on Sweatabl, find out about the classes and location, get taken to their website and sign up in less than 3 minutes. That is how easy finding fitness will be with Sweatabl on your phone :)
Hi! I'm Liz, co-founder of Sweatabl. I grew up in Ottawa, ON and moved to Toronto 6 years ago for my job as a junior civil engineer at a large cement company. Working in that industry was something I was able to do during the day to pay the bills, but my interest in fitness grew exponentially the second I tried group fitness. I fell in love with the fitness community and wanted to be a part of it in any way possible. I began working at studios on the weekends and writing blogs on the side. Being around so many inspirational people in the fitness industry encouraged me to blend my organizational skills with fitness to create my very own business; somewhere that I could have control the messaging and creatives. I'm so proud of what Sweatabl has become and the community that we have cultivated based on positivity, acceptance and realness.
Most used Sweatabl feature? The workout class type filter. Some days I wake up craving a low impact barre class, other days I want want the highest intensity workout to get a real good sweat going. I love that I can quickly find offerings for what my body needs that day
Favourite type of workout? Boxing
Favourite meal? A chicken stir fry with all the fixings followed by brownies
Favourite Netflix show? Any crime docuseries...or The Office

Hey! Rob here, the first co-founder. I am a native of Montreal QC, where I grew up in a family business environment and played all the major sports growing up. I narrowed it all down to football and attended the University of Ottawa in 2008. After graduation I promptly sought out a Job in Finance and began coaching. Which little did I know at that time would lead me to a position in the Canadian Football League in 2017. Coaching in the CFL coupled with growing up in a family business it was simply destiny to start a business in the fitness industry. With all the traveling I was doing, managing project development and product design for the family company I found it increasingly difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and having gym memberships in 4 cities was impossible. Sweatabl was what I needed, and here it is now for everyone!
Most used Sweatabl feature? Program downloads filters. I like that I can have a general idea for a workout (i.e. leg day) and by the time I walk
from my car to the gym, I have the specific workout directly on my phone
Favourite type of workout? Full body strength
Favourite meal? Either spaghetti and super slow cooked BBQ
Favourite Netflix show? Suits
