Fitnet has managed to secure $1.4 million in a series A venture financing from Valleys’ Ventures, LP and CIT Gap Funds. Launched in January 2014, the service has helped its users from 175 countries burn more than 1.25 million calories collectively, relying on webcam-based fitness training.
Fitnet connects clients with personal trainers, providing users with real-time individual feedback and workout scoring. The new money will be used to expand the service and increase workouts available.
The company supports a number of different activities, including yoga, cardio and strength workouts customized by level and preference, trainer feedback, and adjustments based on past performance. As the only mobile fitness app on the market with a biometric webcam and personalized scoring system, Fitnet provides users with the same workout experience as a personal training session with the convenience of working out any place, at any time.
Fitnet is available now on the iTunes App Store as a free download for the iPad with over 100 workouts. A premium monthly subscription of $0.99 is available which unlocks more advanced fitness routines.
