Sixreps.com: Social Media for Fitness and Sport Enthusiasts
Nowadays you can find all kinds of social media on the internet. From social media for food (Foodspotting), to entertainment (GetGlue), beers (Untappd), and many more. But are there any social media for sports? Yes, it is called sixreps.com, a social media for fitness and sport enthusiasts.
Sixreps.com was founded recently in November 2010 by Denny Santoso (who is also the CEO of Ultimate Nutrition Indonesia) and indeed, sixreps.com is targeting “gym-maniacs”out there. In the site, there are a lot of features that can be helpful for sport enthusiasts, which I will discuss later. You can also share tips about sports, workouts, healthy foods, and supplements. Because it was founded in Indonesia, most of the users share the tips in Indonesian. But don't worry, the whole site is in English; although there are still some “grammar mistakes” here and there.

Here is the list of unique features that sixreps.com has:
Besides all the features, sixreps.com also has Sixreps Passport. It is basically an “ID-card” for netizen (internet citizen), which will be valid after the joint venture with Ultimate Nutrition, Inc. is completed. In the future, this “passport” can be used to get certain benefits. (source: DailySocial)
Talking about benefits, sixreps.com is working together with Men's Health Indonesia and international chain of fitness centers, such as Gold's Gym and Clark Hatch (branch in Surabaya, East Java). They also cooperate with local fitness services like Elite Club Epicentrum, so 16.000 users of sixreps.com in Indonesia can already get many benefits by joining this social media; and that is only just in the first five months after the site was launched! I personally see the potential of this site becoming big in the future; they just need to fix some of the grammar mistakes. What do you think?
