It is a known fact that regular exercise can keep one healthy and boost the immune system. And in times of outbreaks like COVID-19, it becomes more important to remain fit, maintain hygiene, and workout as per your physical abilities. Tech-savvy startup founders of these fitness-tech startups have designed exercise regimes and fitness measurements so that everyone can have cleaner and better workout options. Check out these Korean fitness startups that are revolutionizing exercising routines and setting new health standards.
This Fitness Tech startup was started in 2017 by Park ‘Kieran’ Kyung-Hoon, a fitness enthusiast. The online platform Tlabstudio.com provides one-on-one private training based on clients’ real data – like age and physical abilities. Users of the service can customize the workout program depending on their needs. A variety of packaged products with reasonable prices are available to lower the price burden and increase the will to exercise.
The exercise space at all TLab branches is optimized for one-on-one training and a single shower room designed to experience true private training. Members can book the training slots using mobile and take an experience class, to begin with. TLab Studio, with its formula of one-on-one training, is sure a winner in times of a pandemic.
This startup wants to address the concern of whether one exercise regime fits all or not! At fitness centers, people are provided standardized exercise routine, which may not be most suitable for their fitness, health, and physical condition. FITT is an integrated healthcare data platform. It provides customized healthcare solutions based on athletic science data. The startup aims to give an insight into frequency, intensity, type, and time values into the fitness market using information and communication technology (ICT) exercise testing software. It has developed more than 20 algorithms related to exercise based on research institute data, including the American College of Sports Medicine, and has integrated it into its “FITT test method.”
Anyone who takes the FITT test can receive a customized program, which is less expensive than tests done in medical centers like VO2 max. The startup has plans to launch a smartphone application that doesn’t need the user to be in gyms and can be used outdoors. Such an app might be a great asset in times of Corona as you can get customized outdoor exercise routine instead of indoor gyms.
The fitness company, founded in 2017, offers both online and offline group workouts through the ‘Sleek Project.’ The three main components of the project are offline group training, online coaching, and community. The company also uses big data analysis to provide accurate and appropriate guidance.
The client receives fitness and nutrition guidance with ‘gamified’ programs on nutrition mission and workout mission. The users have to pass every mission to reach a level up in their journey to fitness. The exercise programs are designed to be fun, which can quickly become a part of your daily routine and become a habit. The coaches are highly trained professionals and come with thorough experience.
