Global Health, Fitness and Wellness Companies Bring HIIT Group Workouts and Indoor Cycling Classes to Member’s Living Rooms Thru Club Instructors
Vancouver, WA — Core Health & Fitness, thru its Schwinn indoor cycling brand and Motosumo announced a new partnership to launch HomeTeam, a revolutionary new way to leverage technology that enables club and boutique operators to offer online group classes with the same technology they’d use in brick and mortar applications. This makes it the first group app serving both members in the club and those at home simultaneously.
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. While effective, they don’t capture the social experience of a real indoor cycling class or HIIT session.
Motosumo’s HomeTeam is a low-cost feature for gym operators that 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. Users can tune in to the video livestream on any platform and join in with just a smartphone and a heart rate monitor for HIIT classes and on any stationary bike for cycling classes.
“The world is going through some tough times right now, and we all have to adjust,” says Kresten Juel Jensen,
CEO of Motosumo. “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.”
Tim Hawkins, Global Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Core Health & Fitness said, “Gym operators and personal trainers are looking for a way to stay connected to their members at this time. This breakthrough
application of Motosumo’s already cutting-edge application gives operators just that opportunity.” The product is a way for operators to keep their members involved in their gym, even if the doors are closed. “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”, said Hawkins. Customers and friends of Schwinn Indoor Cycling can take advantage of a 50% discount on the first month of a subscription by using the Code SCHWINNHT when ordering from Motosumo. Interested customers can take a FREE live demo by emailing Motosumo at [email protected] or book a 15 min call with the Motosumo team.

Visit us at www.corehealthandfitness.com About Motosumo Motosumo was founded in 2013 based on advanced analyses of body-mounted sensors capable of registering large amounts of data about e.g. runners or sports cyclists. The technology quickly spread to universities, physio therapists and athletes, and Motosumo continued developing the technology for smartphones. That made Motosumo the first company in the world to capitalize on the accurate motion sensors that are integrated in modern smartphones. Motosumo builds on the desire to inspire athletes to train intelligently by making it easy and fun to use data about their training and by offering simple opportunities to train socially across geographical locations. Thereby, indoor cycling teams and the like can compete, compare and collaborate and in addition, instructors can interact with their team members during the training session.
