Fitness industry in India is expanding exponentially and is expected to kiss the INR 1 Trillion mark this year. As of now the fitness options are scattered and are not organized in a desirable fashion, Fitternity aims at aggregating all the gyms, health clubs and bringing in trial options for people to see what suits them the best.
