WHO WE ARE

 We are radically focused on making personal training easier and more convenient for busy people. There are hundreds of very affordable fitness apps out there that are great but, if you want personalized training and need that extra level of accountability with a live person focused only on you, then Flight is the app for you. We have topnotch trainers from across the US and our platform allows you to do live workout sessions either 1:1 or in very small private groups through your mobile device. We remove all the hard work for you.

How are we different from other mobile fitness apps?

We keep the “person” in personal fitness while providing another option to face-to-face personal training. We are not a one-size fits all fitness app so, there are no pre-recorded workout videos or pre-planned classes. Our trainers are with you the entire time and every session is customized and can be adjusted on-the-fly with your trainer as needed during your workout. Looking for a challenging, high-intensity workout? Recovering from an injury? Want to improve your strength and flexibility as you get older? Strength training for a marathon? Or looking for a knowledgeable post-natal fitness trainer? We’ve got you covered. Questions? Ask here.

Prices and Session Length

Early Users get special pricing with plans starting at $90/month for a limited time only ($30/session for 1:1; cost is less if you do small, group sessions). Sessions are 30 min. which makes it very easy to fit in a workout into your busy schedule. More info about Early User pricing is available here.

We believe in giving back.

Flight is also a proud member of the Pledge 1% community whereby we have committed to giving 5% of our profits to nonprofits. This year we are excited to be supporting Girls on the Run, a national nonprofit that helps young girls between 8-13 years old build confidence and self-esteem through an interactive curriculum and running games. Every time you workout with Flight, you’re supporting young women and girls.

Join now and #takeflight.
