Our story

TrainAway began in 2016 when Alexander Schrøder and Kenn Gudbergsen got tired of lousy hotel gyms, endless Google research, rejections at gym front desks and pointless monthly subscriptions when trying to go to the gym while traveling. After trying four gyms in Brazil before successfully finding one they could actually work out in, they said to themselves: There has to be an easier way of doing this!

From here they never looked back, beginning their quest to create a platform which made it possible to not only find, but also to buy direct access to gyms in an unfamiliar location. Today, TrainAway provides seamless gym access to more than 1300 gyms in 40 countries.

On-the-go health is becoming a bigger and bigger issue in our globalized world. The positive intent to stay healthy when traveling should be rewarded, not washed away by inconvenience. We’re here to help you turn that intent into action, and enable healthier lives for all.

Meet the team

Basically, we’ve built a team that lives and breaths for fitness and travel. But don’t get that twisted: our office isn’t full of bronzed girls with perfect abs or well-groomed guys with huge biceps, all boasting about how many pull ups they can do.

In reality, most of us are just normal people who get a buzz from working out, or realise how much exercise benefits our health - and we want to get that message out to others.

We’re a diverse group united by the goal of making fitness more accessible for everyone, at any time. Travel has always been an obstacle to this, but that’s the obstacle we’re working together to overcome.
