Payasugym is a fast growing business that enables gym users to visit a wide range of health and fitness clubs on an occasional or temporary basis, without the need to subscribe for long term memberships or undergo inductions and fitness assessments.
Payasugym was founded in 2010 by Jamie Ward and Neil Harmsworth with backing from Harm Tegelaars, who founded and successfully built up Cannons health & fitness chain. To date the company has signed up more than 1,700 health and fitness facilities, representing a third of the market. These include Hilton Livingwell, Pure Gym, Energie and Virgin Active, as well as large public facility operators such as Greenwich Leisure.
Payasugym customers can be members of a gym near home but also wish to use a facility near work (or vice versa), business travellers, people who are trialling various gyms or those who prefer not to be tied down to an annual membership or visit a club occasionally or for a limited period.
