Quotes from Jimmy Davis: 

“Our logo, the two ii’s actually represent two people, which kind of showcases that we’re trying to build a community of fitness lovers.”

“Before the pandemic, the digitalization of fitness was well on its way. Like the digitalization of many industries, it’s inevitable. That’s not to say we believe that digital fitness is going to replace physical fitness.”

“We believe that we’re going to live in a world where they both complement one another, and we want to work with physical spaces to really ensure that users and gym members have a holistic way of training.”

“We are now a brand that is actually on people’s radar. Other brands come to us.”
