About Localfit

Elevator

Localfit is an all-inclusive travel fitness membership, giving members access to over 5,000 premium health clubs and studios while away from home.

About

Founded in 2017 by former professional baseball players and teammates Andrew Carignan and Rob Gilliam, the idea of Localfit stemmed from a University of North Carolina business class. Andrew and Rob had both returned to college to finish their degrees after career ending injuries. After graduating, the two decided to pursue the venture full time, adding co-founders Tom Sheldon, Lee Gilliam and Ian Phillips. Localfit has launched, tested and learned from a successful beta product during the first half of 2018 and is scheduled for a full production launch in October of 2018.
