ASENSEI & TRX PARTNER TO DELIVER CONNECTED COACHING FOR FUNCTIONAL FITNESS
Global community of TRX trainers, ambassadors and athletes will be training asensei in TRX using asensei’s smart (app)arel™ and Connected Coaching™ app.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, November 20th, 2019
asensei, the company that is democratizing access to live, in-ear, world-class sport coaching, and TRX, the global leaders in functional training, have announced an innovation partnership to bring asensei’s patented Connected Coaching™ technology and smart (app)arel to selected TRX coaches and athletes. TRX will embark on a program that will take what asensei has learned in Connected Rowing Coaching and build upon it in the strength and conditioning vertical. The TRX community can also pre-order asensei’s smart (app)arel beginning today for $349. The company will begin shipping (app)arel in early 2020.
“Our mission is to continually innovate how to most effectively deliver world class training to anyone and to enable everyone, everywhere to move better throughout life,” said TRX Vice President, Chief Science Officer Chris Frankel. “TRX has always had a strong foundation in science-based methodologies. Because asensei is fully aware of technique, posture, fitness and performance level, it is the perfect partner for our community of trainers, ambassadors, and athletes around the globe. We are excited to engage in this final testing phase of asensei to bring Connected Coaching with TRX to the market at the earliest opportunity.”
To deliver truly connected coaching, asensei combines a Connected Coaching™ app, which turns biomechanic data into real-time coaching, with smart (app)arel that is infused with sensors for full-body motion capture. Kinetic Capture™ is the underlying (app)arel technology that allows asensei to understand posture, technique and form for any sport or fitness activity; the Connected Coaching app then provides real-time coaching from world-class coaches, post-workout feedback and dynamic training plans.
“We are fond of saying that counting isn’t coaching and tracking isn’t teaching,” said asensei co-founder Steven Webster. “As coaches ourselves, we imbued asensei with 3 capabilities regardless of the sport you practice - to see what a coach sees, to say what a coach says and to teach how a coach teaches. By learning from the top coaches and experts within TRX, we know that with asensei will unlock the potential of TRX athletes of every ability, with higher quality practice, a focus on technique, and workouts that continuously improve their knowledge and capability.”
After years of research in the areas of motion capture, technique recognition and understanding, and natural user interfaces for digital sports and coaching assistants, founders Steven Webster, Bill Burgar and Ross Arnott, launched asensei to the public with Connected Rowing Coaching in October 2019. The introduction of Connected Coaching and (app)arel™ with Kinetic Capture™ capability marks a move into a wider array of sports including TRX, strength training, yoga, and more.
