In order to support fitness businesses worldwide, Virtuagym is providing this virtual training solution completely license free during the outbreak, so studios and clubs can offer a virtual alternative for their business to help avoid contract cancelations and maintain membership revenue.
Virtuagym @Home combines Virtuagym’s Virtual Trainer workout solution with optional streaming workout videos, which are seamlessly integrated into a mobile and web-based platform. It comes with other powerful features such as progress and nutrition tracking.

The optional streaming Video On Demand has been made available with large discounts to help enhance the digital experience. Virtuagym@Home is completely license free for new Virtuagym customers. One of the largest Dutch gym chains Trainmore already implemented Video On Demand for all members to provide them with a home exercise solution, directly through the Trainmore app.
