SalesFitness® is now SkillFitness™

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Darcy Zimbrick (612) 723-2131

The new company name more accurately reflects a broader marketplace position in training, engagement, and learning across numerous industries and professional fields.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (April 16, 2015) – As of March 1, the Minneapolis-based company previously known as SalesFitness, LLC is renamed SkillFitness. The name change is a direct result of a market opportunity that has emerged as companies and organizations outside the training and sales enablement industry are discovering the power of the award-winning mobile training, practice, and engagement platform.

The company was conceived on the idea that sales organizations needed a next generation learning and practice solution for their people to develop and succeed. Sales leaders and managers wanted a way to communicate key messages to their teams, train them in a way that fits the new mobile realities and validate the results of their efforts. The company’s founders quickly discovered that leaders in other professions – from healthcare to leadership – wished to achieve similar goals.
