Fitness and wellbeing is a huge industry in this country and this has become more evident through the COVID-19 pandemic but with so many gyms, studios and practitioners out there it can be hard to find exactly what you want, when you want it and at a reasonable price. That’s where new on-demand platform WELD comes in. Standing for Wellness, Exercise, Lifestyle, Diet, WELD is an app that allows users to browse health professionals, find a space, book and pay for a service, and rate and review their sessions.
WELD was founded by Brad Woodhouse, who became passionate about health and fitness after surviving a rare brain cancer. His aim is to make staying mentally and physically fit as accessible and affordable as possible. With over 100 specialisations on offer, from personal trainers to nutritionists to instructors, you’ll be able to find the service that you want and see exactly what the rates are for both individual and group sessions up front.
The app also helps health professionals connect directly with customers, expand their businesses and earn more money – 90% of the class or session revenue goes to them with WELD taking an 8% service fee. Customers can even earn some cash with a 2% referral fee and anyone is able to rent out a space to be used for a class, whether it’s a boutique studio or a spare room. WELD is currently fundraising on Crowdcube so you can involved right now.
