Briskby enables gear owners (private owners, gyms, shops, and retailers) to rent out their gear and individuals to rent that gear allowing for a more cost-effective, safer and more diverse sports experience
This approach gives gear owners the chance to create an additional revenue stream and enables renters the opportunity to enjoy trying different types of equipment. Be it a home work out or an outdoor activity. From this, Briskby hopes to create a community where members rate each other and build trust.
‘Many people were struggling to stay fit even before the pandemic. Issues such as overcrowding and body consciousness have often kept many away from gyms. Meanwhile, high costs of fitness and action sports gear have proven to be a deterrent to setting up a home gym and practicing adrenaline sports. We’ve also noticed that equipment fatigue for privately owned goods is an off-putting factor.
The COIVD-19 outbreak brings about even further critical issues. For example, factors such as closed gyms, social distancing, and travel restrictions have made access to an active lifestyle harder for everyone.
Establishing an inclusive rental marketplace where people can hire or make goods available is a solution for a healthier world.’ stated Alessandro Venè, Briskby’s CEO and founder.
Briskby is a lot more than just a social renting marketplace; its goal is to create a community based on trust, where safety is of the utmost importance (when joining Briskby, renters and owners must agree on a rigid safety protocol to comply with COVID-19 containment protocols). Moreover, Briskby aims to replenish part of the losses suffered by the industry and commercial gyms. In particular, as the equipment is put on idle due to shutdown or social distancing rules applying to such premise; it represents also a good opportunity for private owners to make money out of their underused equipment.
Briskby is a breath of fresh air to an industry that is severely struggling. It enables accessing an active lifestyle while making it more sociable, fairer, safer, and more convenient than ever before.
With new restrictions coming into place, this is awesome news to the Europeans who want to stay fit from home and practice their favourite action sports closer to home.
Currently, Briskby is available in Malta, the Netherlands, and Ireland. There are plans to soon expand to other regions.
