TrainingPal LLC, founded in 2010 and located in the heart of Kendall Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is one of the newest online platforms that has been developed for the fitness industry. TrainingPal, created to empower personal trainers to manage and grow a more flexible and scalable business by reaching out through the internet to a larger market, was created by Farnaz Bakhtari, both an entrepreneur and a client to personal trainers. Created with both a client’s perspective and a trainer’s business in mind TrainingPal is one of the most user friendly online platforms.
Here at TrainingPal we follow a Win-Win strategy for both trainers and clients. Our belief is that the true value of personal training is personalized attention to clients. Our goal at TrainingPal is to enable personal trainers to offer their professional services to a larger population and to expand their clientele while still providing personalized coaching.
Farnaz Bakhtari is both founder and president of TrainingPal. Originally coming from a software engineering background, Farnaz thought of the idea for TrainingPal after being a long-term client of personal training. After becoming familiar with the challenges in their business and realizing the lack of affordability of training services, Farnaz noticed both a loss for both trainers and clients. Trainers lost a relationship that once required a lot of their valuable time but clients lost something more important. Clients lost personalized attention, a feature of personal trainers that helps clients reach their fitness goals. To regain these losses Farnaz believes that the Internet is the perfect platform for trainers to reconnect and to coach more clients in less time while still offering their expert personalized attention.
