Maybe you feel isolated and lonely working from home all day, or maybe you’re spending too much money signing up for a coworking space or parking at a coffee shop for eight hours.
Starting this week, the new coworking concept will turn local gyms and fitness studios-often empty during the 9 AM to 5 PM block-into quiet areas for folks to work.
Founder Sarah Hostyk got the idea when she was doing door-to-door sales for another startup she founded.
The idea is that having a space where people both work and exercise will give them something to bond over, she says.
“People feel very isolated and lonely even in coffee shops and coworking spaces full of people,” she says.
WorkStrive day passes are $36, and that includes both a space to work and a fitness class.
An added bonus? You’re more likely to exercise post-work if you’re already at the studio, says Hostyk.
