The startup stated that the new feature has been introduced to help the Malaeb community remain physically fit and motivated as the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic rages on.
The new feature will allow users to connect with gyms and personal trainers through interactive video lessons straight from their Malaeb app. There will be group online workouts and training sessions, among other things.
Each session will include a host of activities such as yoga, crossfit, functional training, fitness training, and so on. More activities are likely to be added in the coming days.
Users do not have to pay anything to access the new feature in the first couple of weeks. This way, they retain the option to evaluate it before committing to a paid membership.
For those of you out of the loop, Malaeb is often called the Airbnb for sporting venues. The app enables users to find and book fields for their football practice and matches. Not only that, users can also use the app to join matches in their neighborhood.
Following a successful start in Bahrain, Malaeb is already in the process of expanding its footprint in MENA and beyond. The company’s investors so far include heavyweights like 500 Startups, Inspire Ventures, Vision Ventures, and Tenmou, among others.
