Motosumo has launched a dynamic interactive platform offering live, instructor-led classes which can be joined by anyone on a stationary bike.

Motosumo is now available in the Apple App and Google Play stores and via Motosumo.com and features interactive games with live fitness metrics, global community interaction, and expert support.

The platform taps into the motion sensors inside smartphones to measure and report a range of performance metrics, fully independent of any branded equipment.

Kresten Juel Jensen, CEO and co-founder of Motosumo, said: “Real-time interaction with instructors and teammates makes the Motosumo experience feel like an in-person class with the added fun of live leaderboards and interactive features like emojis and 3D races.

The new platform coincides with Motosumo launching its services onto the US market, as it looks to tap into the rapidly growing, at-home fitness sector.

Jensen added: “The introduction of Motosumo in the U.S. represents our next step forward in shaking up the connected fitness cycling category and opening access to all who want to participate.

“The cycling fitness category has a lot to offer for many people, and we want to make it as accessible as possible.

"We founded Motosumo and created a dynamic workout experience to open the category to millions more who can benefit from a cycling workout anywhere – whether in the gym, home, dorm or office."
