Inside the Industry x Kumu: Digitizing fitness with Rebel

In the age of social distancing, many industries have gone digital, and fitness is no exception. But how exactly can such a physical – and sometimes social – experience be adequately recreated virtually?

This is the problem that Filipino fitness app Rebel aims to solve. In this episode of Inside the Industry, we talk to co-founders Erwan Heussaff and Gilles Hage about their app and ask them what it takes to recreate the full gym experience at home.

It was kind of about realizing the potential of what we have locally. We have a lot of amazing coaches and so many resources to put out there so we combined them all under one house.
