eGym was founded in 2010 by Philipp Rösch-Schlanderer and Florian Sauter. They startet with a handful of employees in Munich but eGym grew very fast. By August 2015 we are about 172 employees. Most of them are in Munich and Berlin but we have also collegues in London, Madrid, Hettingen, Zürich, Paris and Houten. eGym develops, manufactures and sells high-tech products for the fitness market and developed the eGym Trainer App and the eGym Fitness App. Our Team is very international, young and dynamic.

Our founder Philipp Rösch-Schlanderer spent a year abroad at Columbia University. There he went to the gym for the very first time and couldn`t understand why smart people could go to a place like that – a dark and stinky room in the basement without any windows and totally outdated fitness machines. So he got the
idea to revolutionize the fitness market and to develop smart fitness machines connecting hardware and software opportunities. When he told his school-friend Florian Sauter – our second founder and CTO – about the approach, he was excited to jump in and so eGym was founded back in June 2010.
