Our Mission For Boardgains Workout Game!

Introducing Boardgains 🎲

It’s the small things we all do every day that add up to our motivation to stay fit , and it’s always a work in progress. In this journey to better health, we often forget the best part – to have some fun!

What started as a Bootcamp has now been gamified to a board game—Boardgains. We wanted our fitizens to experience a fun, motivating, and exciting way of working out, with a hint of competitiveness while bringing friends, schoolmates, co-workers and even families together.

MEET THE INVENTOR OF THIS VERSATILE WORKOUT GAME!

Hello my name is Eric Mathura, the Founder of BoardGains. My journey began at York University where graduated with a B.Sc in Kinesiology. From there I started my career in the Health & Fitness Industry as a Personal Trainer & Boot Camp Instructor at Habitual Fitness. I also enrolled in a Sport & Event Marketing post-graduate program to continue to gain more knowledge. After graduating the Sport & Event Marketing program at George Brown College. I used my newly found skills of event planning and planned my first event Board Games Bootcamp.

The moment I saw the excitement, the sense of community, the competition and the motivation my Board Games Bootcamp brought, I knew I was onto something special. So I doubled down on that event and took that fitness white board I had created and kept developing the game over the years.


With years of play testing with different groups of individuals, I kept fine tuning the game. And with the pandemic closing all gyms down, this gave me the free time to invest 100% into it and launch it.

All the feedback from all my play testers helped me realize the potential of the game to make fitness fun. So I dedicated all my energy to creating & delivering the game of many gains. Hence the birth of “Board Gains.”
