From Trainer to Founder
Hi there! I'm Eric Mathura, the force behind BoardGains. My love for fitness led me to a degree in Kinesiology at York University in Canada and later to a role as a personal trainer and bootcamp instructor at Habitual Fitness. But it was my love for watching the TV show 'Survivor,' and its enthralling team and solo challenges, that ignited a lightbulb moment for me. I thought, 'Why can't fitness be this captivating?'
So, armed with this inspiration, I decided to gamify my bootcamps. I initially began with designing fitness cards and then took it a step further by creating the first version of BoardGains on a whiteboard. The idea was simple but powerful: to infuse excitement and entertainment into workouts, making each session something to look forward to rather than a routine to dread.
After studying business at George Brown College, I hosted my first event, Board Games Bootcamp, which was a runaway hit. This success confirmed that I was onto something special. I poured my heart and soul into turning that initial whiteboard concept into a real game. And after a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2020, and receiving our first shipment in July 2021, BoardGains officially launched as a game-changing business.
So here we are! BoardGains is not just a board game; it's a movement aimed at revolutionizing how we perceive and experience fitness. Whether you're in a gym, a school, at home, or even the great outdoors, BoardGains offers a unique blend of fun and fitness. Ready to dive into this fitness revolution? Let's get active together!
