Fitness startup adds new capabilities as it prepares for fall 2022 launch
CHICAGO, June 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Speede Fitness, a Chicago-area strength training startup, announced a new partnership with technology company ASENSEI to incorporate advanced movement tracking and understanding on its Speede Challenger machine, which is scheduled to ship in fall 2022. ASENSEI is highly renowned in the fitness industry for its pioneering work in form-tracking and form-tracking powered experiences using computer vision and connected apparel.
“With four training modes including powerful isokinetic and eccentric training, the Speede Challenger was already going to be a gamechanger for professional athletes and at-home users,” said Dan Mooney, co-founder of Speede. “Now, with 3D computer vision, exercise recognition and understanding and form-tracking powered experiences offered by ASENSEI’s technology, we’re unlocking new capabilities for physical therapy, recovery and health diagnostics.”
“We’re proud to be partnering with Speede to help create a first-of-its-kind strength training experience,” says Steven Webster, CEO of ASENSEI. “Never before has a machine offered the kind of training you’ll find on Speede—and now combining that with advanced 3D range of motion measurement, assessment and recommendations will truly separate Speede from the rest. Utilizing ASENSEI’s technology, Speede can deliver breakthrough experiences for athletes, trainers, therapists, and anyone who’s serious about getting stronger.”
Speede’s announcement comes on the heels of other higher-profile moments for the company, including oversubscribing its recent seed round and signing UFC fighter Michael Chandler as Chief Athletic Officer. As the first connected fitness machine to combine isotonic, isokinetic, and max eccentric training for faster strength gains, Speede has drawn the attention of fitness investors and a host of professional athletes. Equity holders in the company include Justin Fields, Cole Kmet, Jaylon Johnson and DeAndre Houston-Carson of the Chicago Bears, Justin Simmons of the Denver Broncos, Marquez Valdes-Scantling of the Kansas City Chiefs, Elijah Wilkinson of the Atlanta Falcons, pro soccer player Lauren Sesselman, Mason Plumlee of the Charlotte Hornets, and 2x NBA All-Star Carlos Boozer.
ASENSEI will preview its work for Speede at the upcoming IHRSA Convention in Miami on June 23-24. Visitors will have the chance to try the Speede Challenger for themselves, meet Speede Pro Athletes, and hear from the ASENSEI team directly.
