EMBA Alumni Launch Free Virtual Fitness Class Campaign
Founded by Rishi Ghuldu (EMBA ’13), ZERV has made it easy to browse and book personal care services through its all-in-one app. The company recently expanded its services and launched Home Run, a new campaign with the aim of providing accessible and fun virtual fitness classes during the lockdown.
“We have launched a free program that is geared to getting kids active with their families during this pandemic, as well as helping local trainers who have been impacted by gym closures,” shared Rishi Ghuldu “We’ve seen participation from two-year-olds to 82-year-olds, and there is no shortage of evidence of the benefit of exercise on physical and mental health!”
This new initiative has brought together several Kellogg-Schulich EMBA alumni, with the team, including Minh Tran (EMBA ’20), Rahim Katchi (EMBA ’20), Brian Law (EMBA ’20), Keon Zhang (EMBA ’20), Javed Ahmed (EMBA ’17), Aly-Khan Mussani (EMBA ’13) and Prerna Sharma (MMgt ’21). They have also received ongoing support from 2013 graduates, Chris Gibson, Brian Long and Dameon Wilson.
Participants have the opportunity to live stream 30 minute workout sessions with leading personal trainers and try a variety of activities offered at different skill levels, with no equipment required, from yoga and Zumba to dance cardio and kickboxing.
ZERV is partnering with Superfan Nav Bhatia to promote Home Run classes and to support the Daughters of India Project that Bhatia is leading.
