HomeTeam brings HIIT group workouts and indoor cycling classes to your living room.
As fitness clubs and gyms close their doors for the coming weeks, people are at home and looking for ways to stay fit while still following social-distancing guidelines.
Gyms have responded by live-streaming classes to their members. These are great, but they don’t capture the social experience of a real indoor cycling class or HIIT session.
HomeTeam is a low-cost feature for gym operators. It can be set up in just five minutes and delivers a connected at-home fitness experience for a fraction of the price of high-end, home-gym solutions. This means fun, competitive group fitness classes from home. Everyone is connected through the app, with all the usual fitness data, games, races, countdowns, music, emojis, and more.
Instead of a fancy indoor bike or expensive hardware, users can tune in to the video livestream (any platform works!) and join in with just a smartphone and a heart rate monitor. Or, if they have one, anystationary bike.
A new model for the future
CEO of Motosumo, Kresten Juel Jensen said:
“The world is going through some tough times right now, and we all have to adjust. We think the new HomeTeam feature is a great solution for those of us who are home-bound and want to stay active and in touch with our friends and instructors from the gym.”
Lots of gyms and studios are now offering livestream classes, but Kresten explains that HomeTeam is a little different.
“We think that the thing missing from these livestreams is interaction between users. With HomeTeam, users can actually work as a team, compare stats, or even compete and race against each other. We’ve tried to capture the group fitness vibe and bring it to your living room.”
A low-cost way to keep members
The feature is also a way for operators to keep their members involved in their gym, even if the doors are closed.
“Businesses everywhere are struggling to keep their customers. The fitness industry is no different. We think HomeTeam can help retain members at a low cost. If an operator keeps just three extra members, the feature has paid for itself.”
HomeTeam is offered on a monthly subscription, with no binding contract, of just $124 per gym ($208 for indoor cycling).
