SAN FRANCISCO and KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- OYO Fitness, creator of compact exercise equipment that use NASA SpiraFlex technology instead of weights, enabling fitness at home, office or on the go, has launched their OYO Personal Gym PRO and OYO Coaching App (IOS), which wirelessly communicate fitness programs with real time coaching, tracking and feedback. Now for the first time, personal fitness equipment with integrated connected workouts is available wherever you are. The first 2,800 OYO Gym PRO orders have been shipped.
Developed with FS Studios, the OYO Coaching app can be used with all OYO products, featuring programs developed by Fitness Director Nick Bolton that include strength, sculpting, cardio, yoga and Pilates.
"People say they want the benefits of exercise, but don't have the time or place," said Inventor and CEO Paul Francis. "OYO is pioneering the next revolution of fitness by delivering the benefits of fitness to people wherever they have time to fit fitness into their busy lifestyle."
Bolton said, "The OYO Gym provides gym quality resistance, in all planes of movement, without weight or momentum. From our library of over 200 exercises, I can build workouts for any program you can imagine!"
"I used SpiraFlex technology in zero gravity everyday on the International Space Station for 6 months, and returned to earth stronger than before I left. Now I use the OYO Gym to stay in shape while traveling internationally for business," said Dr. Leroy Chiao, former NASA astronaut and ISS commander.
About OYO Fitness
Founder Paul Francis invented SpiraFlex resistance technology for a NASA Mission Critical program to provide a countermeasure against astronaut bone and muscle loss caused by zero gravity during long space missions. A NASA study proved SpiraFlex provided the same benefits as free-weights. Over 50 crewmembers have now worked out with the SpiraFlex iRED hardware on the International Space Station for almost 10 years.
Francis licensed SpiraFlex technology to Nautilus Inc. and helped develop their Bowflex Revolution home gym, which has achieved sales of over $250 million.
OYO (On Your Own) was subsequently founded to pioneer the next fitness revolution by providing the benefits of exercise at the convenience of the user, without the need to visit the gym or fill up a room with equipment. The company's first product was the second most funded fitness product in Kickstarter history.
The company's pipeline of connected (IoT) fitness equipment will change the way people get and stay fit by delivering on-demand and live-streaming programs from top trainers directly to the user. Group exercise classes are using the OYO Gym in one hour high intensity programs for getting lean and fit, and to add strength to yoga and indoor cycling. In corporate wellness programs employees can be tracked and rewarded.
OYO is one of the fastest growing brands in the fitness industry, now expanding international distribution to Asia and Europe. For more information visit www.OYOfitness.com.
