Meet the Team

Co-founders Eric and Ryan have been friends for years and designed the FitTube app while working out together at a local gym in Springfield, Illinois. Later that year they teamed up with Eric’s friend Francisco to complete the founder team and launched the FitTube Beta App in early 2016. Since the beta launch FitTube has grown to over 3,500+ Users including over 100 Top Trainers/IFBB Pros/CPTs, in 25+ Countries. The FitTube Team also has had the awesome opportunity of sponsoring local athletes and travel the country with a great group of promoters.

The FitTube team is planning their next app upgrade which includes premium workouts from Elite FitTube users, activity tracking and gym check-ins to earn free products and rewards, and also improved chat/messaging functions with a trainer-client payment gateway.

The FitTube HQ office is located inside  The Incubator in Springfield, Illinois. If you’re in the Springfield area stop by our office or workout with the Team at our home gym, LA Fitness.
