The Next Fitness Industry Disrupter Could Be Healthcare

The fitness industry is on the doorstep of the next disruptive business model. That model involves the integration of healthcare, but whether club owners can step across that threshold depends upon technology being available to integrate payers, medical providers and clubs.

Tempo Reveals $17M-funded $2000 Weight Lift Training Screen

Tempo wants to be the Peloton of barbells. It’s a 42-inch tall screen with 3D machine vision that tracks and teaches you as you workout. The giant upright HD display makes it feel like your personal trainer is right there with you while you compete with others in live and on-demand classes.

Tempo’s Microsoft Kinect-esque motion sensors scan you 30 times per second and notify you if your form is wrong. It’s all housed in a sleekly designed free-standing cabinet that neatly stores the included barbells, dumbbells, attachable weights, workout mat, recovery foam roller, and heartrate monitor.
