“We are really excited to receive the support from East Ventures, who is known for growing and expanding a company and we cannot wait to start,” said Jeff Budiman, CEO of The Fit Company in a press conference at Fitstop Kuningan.

Willson Cuaca, East Ventures’ Managing Partner shared that young consumers below 30-years-old are the main target of The Fit Company. “Indonesia has big potential through its young consumer population – close to 60% is below 30 years old, and they increasingly spend on discretionary items. This new consumption behavior presents a huge opportunity for a new ecosystem, especially in the health and wellness category,” explained Cuaca.

The lifestyle is further supported by the recent rise of on-demand and O2O platforms in the country.

The Fit Company captures the holistic products and services market; offering activities, tools and equipment and ready to eat F&B.

“People today demand everything to be fast and instant, but at the same time, the awareness of health investment is increasing too. We realise that the whole pipeline of the so-called ‘wellness economy’ is there for the taking,” Budiman added.

The company that was started in 2014 by Budiman, Prianka Bukit, and Bambang Bukit. It has 5 business lines consisting of Kredoaum (Fitness tech distributor), 20Fit (MicroGym), Fitstop (Gym), Fit Lokal (healthy food), and Fitmee (Healthy Instant Noodles made from konjac).
