Fit tech startup Tempo looks to ramp up growth plans with new investment

By

At-home fitness startup Tempo is believed to be in the latter stages of finalising a US$100m cash injection from Japanese holding company SoftBank.

With the investment, US-based Tempo is looking to challenge Peloton, Mirror and Tonal in the rapidly growing at-home fitness market.

Tempo offers an interactive tech solution that offers exercisers personalised feedback on aspects such as form and technique.

The system uses a 42-inch HD touchscreen, 4K display and offers users a selection of live-streamed and online exercise classes ranging from HIIT, strength training and cardio to yoga.

Utilising an in-built camera and pulses of infrared light, Tempo creates a detailed 3D model to capture the users form, offering suggestions on how to improve technique and make workouts safer and more efficient.

With the help of the Azure Kinect camera, Tempo can "watch" the user’s form and plot the user’s movements, observing muscles and joints to ensure each lift, squat, and slide is done properly.

The system also counts reps, makes recommendations based on the users personal goals and visualises progress before, during, and after each workout.

Tempo is priced at a minimum US$2,495, with an additional, all-inclusive membership costing $39/month for access to classes.

As well as the HD screen, there's a selection of equipment and accessories – such as weights, barbells, benches, racks, kettlebells and mats – which users can choose from to create a "Tempo Studio" at home.
