Mammoth Hunters was created founded in 2012 and has gone over a long period of Beta testing and now is on growing phase.
On June 2013 we did a crowd funding were we raised 20.000 EUR for initial development that allowed a long and thorough refinement of our service creating what it is probably the best online personal trainer in the market.
We don’t say this lightly. We are backed by a very strong team of trainers and physical therapists that have validated our program with hundreds of users. In addition we are the official application of the Paleo Training, a training model somehow similar to CrossFit (but better obviously!) that has more than 15 gyms in Spain and is growing very fast.

Our business model is a subscription based service of personalized nutrition and training programs. Users pay between 5 EUR/month and 40 EUR/year.
A part of the steady revenues from our 1200 current users, we are growing at a 20% monthly and we have raised money through an ICF loan for growth (sorry we keep the amount undisclosed).
The 3 founders are Oriol (PhD in Molecular Biology and MBA), Xavi (TelCo Enginieer) and Nestor (therapist, expert in sport and nutrition). In addition we have 2 interns developing front and back end and we are currently hiring a marketing person to take care of the American market.
Our aim: Make people happy by helping them do sport of quality and eat properly. And in the process gain millions of users, enjoy a lot our work and get super fit ourselves.
