We’re building a product to help people. We are not experts at the things that you are experts at. What TriNet allows us to do is focus on what we do best, which is building a product that helps our members live healthier lives.


The strategic HR required with becoming a multi-state and rapidly scaling employer took time away from focusing on key business priorities.


With TriNet, Aaptiv has an expert to depend on for HR administration from payroll to compliance to benefits administration.

Aaptiv has become the top audio-based fitness app on the Apple Store and the fastest-growing mobile fitness product on the market with nearly 200,000 members. With a mission to empower everyone to live a healthier life, Aaptiv has transformed the way people exercise and train through its innovative use of sound. Every Aaptiv class combines the guiding voice of an expert Aaptiv trainer with motivating music by top artists in every genre. This audio-based format eliminates distractions, allowing members to focus on their fitness goals, when and where it suits them.

To help the company scale quickly, TriNet services and technology have freed up the Aaptiv leadership team from time-consuming HR tasks, so they could focus on talent acquisition. With the resulting growth in headcount, Aaptiv needed a robust HR infrastructure yet had limited internal resources. To complicate things, Aaptiv had evolved from a New York employer to a multi-state employer. TriNet experts assist Aaptiv by providing HR updates on new regulations and local mandates for all of the states where their employees work, so they can rest easy knowing they’re on top of HR compliance issues. They can now assess and identify potential areas of weakness from an employment compliance perspective, as well as from an HR policy perspective. Aaptiv also leverages TriNet for multi-state payroll administration and tax reporting, benefits administration, performance management, employee relations help, leave of absence support and ACA reporting .

TriNet is also a customer of Aaptiv.
