AI-driven personal trainer platform Altis secures investment after signing LA Fitness deal

By

Altis, an artificial intelligence-based personal trainer solution, has secured more than US$3m worth of financing, bringing the total investments made in the fit tech brand to date to US$10.5m.

The latest round of funding included investments from Mike Capps, former head of gaming at Epic Games; Bill Flynn, former CEO of Amtrak; and US Olympians JR Celski and Georganne Moline.

Using proprietary computer vision and AI, Altis is powered by what it calls the world's first "Movement Operating System" and is able to see, "understand", and personally instruct users.

As a result, it is able to create hyper-personalised fitness programmes based on users' individual capabilities, limitations, and goals.

The system – which made its debut at this year's CES – uses a soundbar-sized console that connects to any screen.

Jeff Halevy, Altis CEO and co-founder, said: "It's been incredible to see the level of investor interest increase as Altis comes to market.

"While previous investment activity was driven by the hype of the 'connected fitness' category, I believe investment in Altis has been purely value-driven.

"Movement OS will not only support democratising access to quality, personalised exercise instruction – but to virtually any body-related discipline across the human movement spectrum, from post-surgical and rehabilitation to high performance."
