Shannon saw a need for an enhanced communication tool after years of managing group fitness teams. Searching for a way to streamline emails, sub requests and events led her to outlining the GXP service. Luckily, John had the brains to make it happen. Over the years, the two have refined, updated and evolved the product to solve many of the pain points of managing group fitness teams.
