Who doesn't want washboard abs and to look great in a bikini? 'Fitness' is a broad term and includes everyone from the Arnold Schwarzenegger wannabe to the midlife crisis weekend warrior, to the spinach-eating spin class goer, to the ultra-marathon runner.

However, every fitness enthusiast is united by a common aspiration - the desire to become better than they currently are. No matter the method-- weights, HIIT, Pilates, or running, we all have the desire to be in shape. The number of gyms and fitness centers is growing rapidly, as more and more people aspire to reach their fitness goals. In this modern day and age, it is difficult to walk the streets without finding gyms and fitness studios everywhere. They've sprouted like mushrooms and have proliferated widely.
Why We Doubled Down On Our Partnership With Supertails: Building India’s One-Stop Destination for all Pet Care Needs
At DSGCP, we have been tracking the evolution of the pet category since we started in 2012. That is a full decade. Pets are an important component in our theme ‘the evolving family unit'. We expect this category to be huge in the future given the rapid adoption of pets among Millennials and GenZ. Our conviction in the category helped us invest in Supertails in early 2021 when the founders were still working on the idea. We love partnering with founders at an ideation stage on Day -1. It was a decision completely based on the founders’ ability to execute and build a category-defining brand in a segment that is expected to grow massively. Supertails has come a long way. The team has made great progress in building India’s best digital-first destination for all Pet Care needs.
