Even gyms now accept Bitcoin
From today onwards the Dimagrimondo gym in Grugliasco also accepts payments in Bitcoin (BTC).
Massimo Bechis, CEO of the Dimagrimondo gym in Grugliasco, explained:
„Being one of the first gyms in the world to be equipped to receive payments also in Bitcoin is a source of pride for me and my partner Alessandra. In these extremely difficult times for fitness because of COVID-19, committing ourselves to 360 degrees to improve allows us to feel alive and projected into the future“.
Covid-19 is certainly bringing problems to the sports and One Bitcoin a Day events sector, so Dimagrimondo’s aim is to renew itself to attract as many people as possible when it reopens.
Indeed, Alessandra Remmert explained:
„Knowing how to adapt to digitalisation also goes through supporting and being able to manage new forms of payment,
Bitcoin in the gym you’ve always dreamed of
Massimo Bechis added:
„Fitness is the best way to be able to safeguard our well-being and our future. Digital currencies, like Bitcoin, are the future of stress-free payments. Combining them seemed to us the best way to give people a feeling of peace of mind, transparency and a willingness to meet their needs. Our slogan The gym you’ve always dreamed of contains all our commitment and day after day Alessandra, our instructors and I are working hard to ensure that people perceive our facility as their home, the place they’ve always dreamed of working out in.
And indeed Bitcoin is definitely a payment method that is free of all constraints and professes to be the tool to give freedom and privacy
Furthermore, the two partners explain:
„Payments in bitcoin are very fast and the fees acceptable. In addition, you only need a smartphone and an account on an Exchange to be operational. In addition to the traditional POS we can also receive bitcoin as a payment method, which puts us several years ahead of all other European gyms. As Dimagrimondo we have always innovated both in terms of training machines and subscription formulas, moving away from the „traditional“ and looking for the best solutions for the people who train with us.
Bitcoin isn’t the fastest and lowest-commission crypto on the market, but it’s certainly the best known at the moment so it makes sense to use BTC alone as a payment method.
