The wellness and fitness industry in Kenya is becoming digitized; today Manyactive app is set to become a game-changer in Kenya’s and wellness industry.

Just like industry-leading market places with multi-service providers, Manyactive is an app that hosts many providers including gyms, nutritionists, beauticians, personal trainers, fitness classes like Yoga, Zumba, HIIT, boxing to name just a few.

The app is, however, more than just a marketplace for fitness and wellness.

The app is more of the digital community for wellness where users can search for a service near them and cess at a fraction of the cost that they would pay in cash if they just walked in. 

According to Manyactive Co-Founder Evalyn Oloo, the app is currently on a pre-launch.

She notes the challenge Kenya faces is the lack of wellness solutions in general including, fitness, spa, beauty, nutrition is all fragmented.

The issue of high costs and inaccessibility makes these very sought after services out of reach. That’s what we are here to fix.

“We established this app so that we can bring all these providers at par and have users access them at standardized rates that are cheaper than walk-in rates thus making access to wellness more convenient and accessible. Simply think Uber for wellness that you pre-pay for to take you anywhere, anytime every 30 days and is cheaper than paying cash per trip,” she said.

Evalyn notes Manyactive app members at a click of a button will be able to discover the gyms and classes near them through the app and access them by a single click, in essence, this is the only membership one will ever need for fitness and wellness.

The process is simple, download app, register, top-up then start searching, booking, exploring and meeting other like-minded people. 

The app will be officially launched on March 30 in Nairobi.
