Trainer+ is a fitness management tool for gyms and trainers that changes how they deliver personal training through technology. The web and mobile platform closes the feedback loop between trainers and their clients around all of the relevant fitness information, creating new ways for fitness support to be delivered both in-person and online. This not only creates new services within fitness, but helps organizations extend their fitness services into new extended healthcare markets.

As a growing tech company, the learning opportunity at Trainer Plus is one to work in a fast paced, agile environment, where students will be asked to own an area of responsibility, but also contribute in other areas where needed. Students will have an opportunity to learn modern product development operations, how to manage their responsibilities with team tools, how to contribute and communicate in a team project, demonstrating work, product testing and user support. Given the nature of our software, students will also have an opportunity to learn about the fitness industry and work with a trainer on their own fitness program.

Students will be working on the Trainer+ Enterprise platform, a version of our software aimed at fitness and healthcare organizations. The work will be focused on further developing the web and mobile platform and corresponding sales/conversion activities needed in customer support.
