Fitmob Gets $9.75M For Fitness Training
San Francisco-based Fitmob said Thursday that it has raised $9.75M for a fitness startup which offers up live fitness training at outdoor locations and temporary, indoor spaces. The startup--founded by Snapfish's Raj Kapoor and Paul Twohey of Ness--said its smartphone driven service lets users drop in on classes, paying less depending on how many classes they attend. The funding came from Mayfield Fund, Silicon Valley Bank, and angels. The company said its classes include trainers who have signature workouts named things like "Weapons of Ass Reduction, Sweat Soiree, Twerkout Conditioning and Guru Gone Wild."
