TREAD, which was founded by Dinesh Godara in July 2020, will be using the freshly raised funds to fast-track its product development and accelerate the growth of its business.

In a statement issued by the startup, Founder and CEO Dinesh said:

“This fundraise gives us the initial capital to rapidly build out our product, our content across social platforms, and to onboard thousands of professional trainers from across the country. Our immediate goal is to launch an immersive and gamified experience for users to choose their workouts and make consistent progress on their fitness goals.”

TREAD has also built a fitness community on its social media channels. It has 1.1 million subscribers on YouTube, and another five lakh plus followers on Instagram. The fitness startup is also in talks with multiple VC firms to raise its Series A round of funding.

“In this post-COVID-19 world, people are cautious about social distancing and are hesitant to head back to the gyms and fitness centres. Workout from home has become a new normal in fitness around the world. TREAD is squarely positioned around this need and is offering the full range of workouts via online sessions with best-of-breed trainers across all categories,” Dinesh added.

Trainers and fitness experts from across the country will be able to use TREAD’s platform for conducting sessions for all forms of workout — Yoga, HIIT, cardio, strength and conditioning, among others.
