We didn't plan on starting a company. We were two college kids who wanted to get in shape. We knew we could get so much more out of our workouts, but didn’t know where to start. We needed personalized, actionable feedback to help us reach our goals. Since we couldn't afford a trainer, we decided to build one.
We knew we could leverage science to train better. Then, we stumbled upon electromyography (EMG), a clinical technology that captures what your muscles are doing. We decided to integrate it into clothing to measure our output and progress at the gym. Everyone told us it had been tried, that it was impossible….turns out they were wrong.
When impossible became possible, we knew we could help hundreds of thousands of athletes train better.
