We’re live. Hello www.upmysport.com!

Posted in upmysport on April 19, 2012

So after 3 weeks out there in betaland (and with 99 days to go until the Olympics!) we are pushing upmysport out there on its own into the sometimes daunting world of .com.

This is another big step for upmysport in what has been another big month for the team. We’ve had our first bookings in each of tennis, golf and personal training (thanks again to Sarah for being our first! There have also been plenty of enquiries to our instructors. Not to mention moving into a new office, reaching 800 twitter followers and welcoming our short-term intern Ben.

This is all great news (and a slight relief!) and we are now very excited about the next phase. To go with our move to .com we’ve also got a brand new homepage design that better shows off our great instructors. We think it’s really important that there is more about our instructors and less about us (don’t worry you can still find out plenty about us if you would like..). So hopefully you’ll find the new-look homepage a lot easier place to start your journey to finding your perfect instructor, course or lesson.

With that in mind here are some of our favourite listings and instructors:

We really liked Mark Barlow‘s unique combination of being a Golf instructor and personal trainer:

To find out more about Mark, watch his video and check out his listings head here.

We also really liked Chris HinesBalham fitness bootcamps  (pictured below) as an affordable way to get into shape (£8.38p a session!). Chris can also call upon a huge amount of experience in injury rehab so if you’re coming back from injury or just interested in getting fit you can find his listings here.

Last but by no means least Coco Martin‘s listing offers a great way to get better at tennis with a friend. So if you’re keen to improve you game but would prefer to have some company head over to her listing.

Finally we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped us get to this point!
