STRV CEO and co-founder Lubo Smid and co-founder David Semerad have a shared love for fitness, which led them to begin their journey with Barry’s Bootcamp in Venice, California. Through a shared love of Barry’s, STRV co-founders, Smid and Semerad, traveled the globe pre-pandemic, visiting nearly 50 Barry’s locations across 14 countries.
Founded by Joey Gonzalez, Barry’s is a high-end, high-intensity interval training fitness branch that brings energy and life to all workouts in the studio. Barry’s has celebrity clients ranging from supermodels like Adriana Lima to top celebrities like Justin Bieber, however when the pandemic hit, the entire business model had to be reshaped, and this was done with an exclusive partnership with the highly accredited software design and engineering company, STRV.
STRV worked closely with Barry’s to successfully launch Barry’s X, which promotes a fitness lifestyle that aligns with Barry’s brand but still fits the new normal. STRV found and created an app and website from scratch for Barry’s X, which allows members to network through the app, foster an environment like they are typically used to with the Red Room light filter, meet instructors virtually and form relationships as they usually would, as well as listen to instructor-curated playlists during their workouts.
Barry’s pride themselves in their upbeat environment, top-rated instructors, workouts, and unique red room, so branding was placed at the forefront of the app and website development process. STRV has a unique talent pool, where each person brings their fresh perspective. This combination of groundbreaking talent and technology in a niche market has brought STRV and Barry’s X immense success since the launch of Barry’s X.
The combined passion for fitness and technology has allowed for a successful, long-lasting partnership between two companies with the same passion and drive to better communities.
“I want STRV to work on projects we’re passionate about. This is a prime example. David and I got to know firsthand just how special the community is and why it’s one of the most popular fitness studios in the U.S. And now, we get to do something meaningful together. It does not get any better,” said Lubo Smid, STRV Co-founder, and CEO.
Founded in 2004, STRV is a software design and engineering team centered around building digital products for partners ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies.
