Google Wants to Search and Book Your Next Workout For You
We call it a search pull-up bar
If you recently acquired a gym membership, congrats. You’re already well underway to a more handsome you.
But here’s a little secret: if you really want to see results, you’ve gotta hit a few classes. Only then can a trainer push you to your limits. Problem is, fitness classes swell during this time of year like a post-holiday waistline, especially if you live in a major city.
The solution: Reserve with Google — a new health and wellness class booking system that allows you to sign up your next sweat session right from your search bar.
The service partners with scheduling services like Mindbody, Full Slate, Front Desk and Appointy to get the job done. Currently, the feature is only available in L.A., San Francisco and New York City.
The search works like a classic Google Maps hunt. Just pick your poison — yoga, pilates, crossfit, barre or boxing — and the gyms are listed on the left and presented on the map to the right. You select a gym and presto: the schedule of classes appears in the list with prices. You book and it populates your calendar with the location so you can navigate traffic.
The only problem? Now you’ve got one less excuse.
