How Octiv Started:
The Story of a Rogue Towel

When a wet towel went rogue in (founder) Mark Fawzy’s gym bag in 2014, the soft pages of a workout logbook and six months’ worth of carefully logged workout information disintegrated into an indecipherable nothing. In a fit of frustration, the idea for Octiv (originally BoxChamp) was born and a workout tracking app was developed.

Today, this simple concept has come a long way and is making a big impact. The platform still helps members monitor and track their training, but it’s evolved into something much greater.

It’s a powerful customer relationship management tool that ensures studio owners and trainers can keep doing what they do best – building communities and helping people stay fit, active and healthy. Octiv now supports hundreds of studios around the world.

The Octiv team has grown from one man to an exceptional team of people, all passionate about helping fitness studios to thrive and grow.
