Keeping active can be costly, particularly if you have to go to a normal gym or hire a personal instructor. However, several smartphone apps can assist you in achieving your “fitfam” objectives without emptying your pocket.
Welnes, an Egypt-based fitness app, recently secured $300,000 in a seed round led by Flat6labs and including Samurai Incubate, UI Investments, and a group of angel investors.
Welnes is a community app that connects users with professional nutritionists and instructors to enable them to achieve their weight-loss and lifestyle objectives.
The funds raised in this round will be used to grow the firm’s personnel and prepare it for GCC expansion by 2023.
Welnes was founded in 2020 by serial entrepreneurs Amr Saleh (CEO) and Amr Diab (CTO), both of whom have product experience in industries such as Fintech, IoT, and blockchain.
Welnes creates individualized nutrition and training routines for a variety of lifestyles, including Keto, Low Carb, Plant-Based, and much more.

The advancement of mobile technology has changed the way we track our health and keep fit. Many people nowadays wish to stay in shape but find it challenging to do so.
Today’s world is highly hectic, and several individuals spend countless hours sitting at their desks at work or stuck in traffic, especially in Africa.
I might not be a doctor, but I believe that this way of life is unhealthy for everyone, particularly those who work in occupations that require little or no physical activity.
You’ll need a friend and wellness and fitness apps to assist you to stay in shape if you want to improve your exercise routine.
Some have friends that join them to the gym, but not always, or they may have a heavy workload that prevents them from going to the gym.
In that situation, the correct app might serve as an online fitness instructor or training partner, keeping you disciplined and inspired.
Furthermore, apps like Welnes can assist you in developing the regularity and discipline necessary to stick to a program long enough to enjoy all the benefits.
Since you can construct a customized training plan and experience a broad variety of activities with these fitness apps, you can efficiently attain the greatest results.
