3000 + Growing
Anything’s possible. That’s our mission. Hop-On co-founders Fozia Naseem, Shahida Kishver and Najma Khan “clicked” over their shared vision: to bring a feeling of endless possibilities through the power of physical activity. We liken it to that feeling you get after riding a bike solo for the first time. You know that wind in your hair, I can do anything now feeling.
Hop-On is for everyone. Our one of a kind transformational coaches guide people to push the limits of what they can achieve, overcome their challenges and improve their fitness. Whether it’s cycling, yoga or walking, the Hop-On experience is fun, fitness and the freedom of endless possibilities.
Our members are our community. You won’t find any weekly Leader Boards at Hop-On. Our trained instructors work with you at your pace. Over time, friendships are made. Alongside our weekly cycling groups, we hold monthly Hop-On Socials. Over time, we’ve supported some members to become instructors. With over 2,500 members, we’re growing together.
It’s more than just the bike. Hop-On is designed to benefit the mind, body and soul. We are a female-led social enterprise supporting other women to push their limits. Our instructors combine physical activity with their communications and neurolinguistic training. Ready to realise anything’s possible? Join The Movement!
