Starting as a website for the two founders to keep each other accountable and be able to work out together despite living 6000 km apart, ABEL has developed into the new norm for trainers wanting to succeed with coaching in 2020. In 2016 the CTO of ABEL decided that he wanted to be able to continue to work out with and be coached by the CEO, even after leaving Tromsø, Norway to go back to Philadelphia, USA. After testing the web application on 100s of personal training clients with phenomenal results, the two founders decided to create a platform so professional, user friendly, beautifully designed, and powerful that anyone wanting to work as a personal trainer or online coach could make a great living out of it. The two founders are Simon Laugsand, personal trainer and CEO, and Ridge Robinson, computer engineer and CTO. With the belief that personal trainers and nutritionists are the doctors of the future, and the knowledge of how incredibly impactful trainers are on the lives of their clients, they want to make sure that as many people as possible can have access to a knowledgable and caring coach.
