With physical gym operations being suspended at the moment, Curefit has adapted itself in the last few months and transferred most of its services to the digital space. We have been generating top-quality content to make working out at home easy and fun. So far, our digital verticals have been popularly received, and we want to continue to build on that momentum. Through monetisation, we hope that our popular live sessions can enable us to amplify the Curefit experience for our users.
