Who are you guys and why did you create Gymga?

We are two old friends who met as kids, enjoying sports and athletics. We both went on to start various successful internet business ventures separately after college, but maintained our friendship throughout.

In early 2010, we decided it was time to take the passion for fitness we shared and do something good for the world - to create an interactive social fitness site to motivate and inspire fitness and overall health.

To that end, our goals at Gymga are (1) to make fitness more interactive and social, (2) to make tracking your exercise habits easy and (3) to make it easy for people to discover new ways to exercise.
