June 30, 2020
Fyt Duo allows clients to work out virtually with the guidance of a certified fitness coach when and where they choose
Newport Beach, California – June 30, 2020 – PEAR Sports, the health and fitness software platform that delivers smarter digital coaching solutions, announced today that it has partnered with Fyt, America’s largest personal training service to release a new digital training app called Fyt Duo. Available now, Fyt Duo provides clients with access to personalized, curated workouts and ongoing support by certified fitness coaches selected specifically to achieve each client’s goals. This cost-effective tele-coaching solution makes personal training accessible to a much larger audience of consumers who need help achieving their fitness goals. The app, available for both iOS and Android, also gives clients unprecedented convenience about where and when they work out.
“We are proud to partner with PEAR to bring Fyt Duo to our growing network of trainers and clients,” said David Hung, Fyt CEO. “PEAR Sports is a leader of innovation in the fitness and wellness tech space, and with their expertise in software design and development, we’ve created an app that is simple, thoughtful, and provides a seamless user experience. COVID-19 has turned the fitness industry upside down, and consumers are demanding more flexible, affordable, and safer fitness options. Fyt Duo allows them to get all the benefits of working with a personal trainer from the convenience of the app. And now our roster of world-class trainers can leverage the power of PEAR’s digital coaching platform to provide their services to a lot more clients.”
Fyt Duo is a digital extension of Fyt’s namesake in-person 1:1 personal training service. It appeals to clients looking for the accountability and guidance personal trainers provide, with more scheduling flexibility and affordability. This is also a solution that allows personal trainers to expand their training schedules and take on more clients remotely. Conversely, it allows clients the opportunity to work with trainers who are not located near them but who may be the perfect match to help them reach their health and fitness goals.
Following the initial virtual consultation, the Fyt trainer will deliver via the app weekly personalized workout plans customized to the client’s individual goals, fitness level and available equipment. Feedback reporting on scheduled workouts is provided to the trainer, who will be available for clients’ questions and motivation along the way using the chat feature. Fyt Duo integrates with most fitness wearables so coaches can refine workouts based on individual biometric performance.
“Fyt has led the way in providing a convenient platform for anyone to be matched with a certified fitness coach and enjoy all the benefits of personal training. We are thrilled to provide Fyt with a smart, digital solution that extends the reach of their personal trainers and makes their 1:1 personal training services available and affordable to even more clients. From the start, PEAR has been in the business of democratizing access to professional coaches and real-time, personalized guidance via digital products. This partnership with Fyt really goes to the core of what we do best,” said Simon Sollberger, PEAR Co-Founder.
PEAR is expert at delivering personalized, adaptive coaching programs with bespoke content using mobile and wearable technology with human coach guidance and symbiotic music. The Company’s digital coaching solutions include PEAR Proä, a tool that allows enterprises like Fyt to build and deliver customized fitness workouts. With two-way communication and reporting tools, Fyt Duo encourages and motivates clients to achieve their best results.
