Our
company history

Francois Casanova has always had an affinity for sports, especially the ones at high-speed. In his early teens, he was a professional kart driver, racing against Nico Rosberg and other aspiring Formula 1 professionals. Over the years, Francois developed a very special relationship to sports and movement.

In 2012, whilst searching for fitness offerings, Francois noted that there is a significant discrepancy between demand and supply in the fitness industry. In that moment, the first idea was born. Francois wanted to develop a fitness search engine, where everyone could easily find a place to do sports. Fitogram’s initial goal was to make the online market more transparent and encourage more people to move.

Andreas Rudischhauser is working in a big company as a software developer. His mother is a passionate yoga teacher with her own studio. Since she had a large customer base, she regularly complained about the amount of administrative work. To help his mother, Andreas came up with an idea to develop an easy software for managing her yoga studio. He thought that other studios may have the same problem and maybe his software could support them as well in their day-to-day lives. Few months later, he established Coursika, a management software solution that allowed yoga teachers to save time on paper work and focus on their customers.

In 2013, Francois and Andreas met at a start-up convention. They have quickly realized that Fitogram and Coursika seem to create a perfect synergy. After several meetings it was clear: Francois and Andreas will join their forces and create something bigger. Coursika became FitogramPro and Fitogram continued to serve FitogramPro users as an additional platform to present their offerings and gain more visibility in the fitness market. FitogramPro allows studio owners to manage their own studio clearly and easily, so they can focus 100% on what’s most important to them – their customers.
