Real-time feedback on form while strength training

About FitLift

12 million sports injuries occur per year due to incorrect technique while training, leaving a $40b opportunity for a technology that corrects form. We track motion and give athletes real-time feedback on their lifting technique, all from a wearable device and smartphone. We are focused on lifting, but later will expand to golf, tennis, baseball and yoga, Pilates to become the dominant player for form correction across all sports.

Problem statement

We all know someone that takes their training seriously, you could say he’s a regular at the gym. It’s their last lift of the day, and they are going for that personal record, but leave either injured or frustrated. Well, we are here to solve that for athletes at all levels across the world.

No matter the stage of an athlete, they all share a common goal, that’s to decrease injury while maximizing performance. This holds true for kids building their athletic foundations, serious athletes at the peak of their performance, and everyday gym goers that live an active lifestyle but need to be able to pick up their kids every day. Poor technique while training is the primary factor keeping them from achieving these goals, and attributes to almost 12 million sports injuries per year.

This leaves a big need for a solution that can provide the feedback necessary to prevent poor technique. This solution should be a portable technology that provides real time feedback to users during their sessions, allowing them to drive results. Lastly, this solution must be advanced enough to evolve with the training methods of tomorrow.

Traction Metrics

Traction information

Our unique and valuable offering led to our strong initial traction of having 6 university strength programs in paid trial and 14 annual subscriptions with B2C customers, totaling $19.6k earned year to date with up to $30k of committed revenue by end of Q3 of this year. We are also currently rolled out to 58 pro cyclists for use during weight training as a result of our partnership with Team DSM, an elite cycling team worldwide. We initially validated product market fit through this pilot partnership, as we built our product together with their head strength trainers. Most recently, Softeq invested $100k in us as accelerator funding and we gained admission to Capital Factory Ventures and WTIA Founder Cohort, proving that multiple accomplished entrepreneurs and investors believe in our vision.
