FitFIT Takes on Online Fitness the Home Fitness DVD Market Head-on with Disruptive Business Model, Live Streaming, and Social Network Integration

Irvine, CA, August 04, 2014 --(PR.com)-- FitFIT today announced it will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to solve the problem of missing a work out or fitness class due to the difficulty of getting to the gym on a regular basis, lacking motivation, not feeling comfortable at the gym, or limited variety to your work out options. Existing at home or on-demand workouts involve getting a tired old DVD or non-interactive recorded workout replayed online. Watching a DVD workout more than once quickly gets mundane, and traditional online streaming sites available today have limited choices available and do not integrate with your social networks or provide live streaming classes.

FitFIT enables anyone to workout anywhere and anytime with social enabled live streaming on any device (PCs, smartphones, tablets, and televisions). Even if a live workout was missed, users can still attend one of FitFIT’s delayed live classes so there is no worry of missing the action. FitFIT cloud-based fitness classes can be made available around your schedule and location – a workout that works the way you do.

Beyond live streaming and social integration, FitFIT’s differentiation is that FitFIT partners up with local gyms that are pre-screened to ensure quality of workouts. This business model enables local gyms with a platform to expand their reach beyond the traditional brick and mortar facility. Conversely, gyms fitness class programs that are traditionally out of reach for many can now be made available as a cloud-based fitness class in which customers can socially interact with other participants. The FitFIT platform empowers local gym businesses all the while providing a unique social workout experience.

FitFIT has partnered with 4 gyms and studios in Orange County, CA. Each gym brings a unique set of fitness classes to the FitFIT platform. The four gyms are:

· Ra Yoga – Costa Mesa - https://rayoga.com
· CutFitness – Rancho Santa Margarita - http://www.cutfitoc.com
· Shape Up Fitness – Corona Del Mar - http://shape-up.com
· CrossFit Forest – Lake Forest - http://www.crossfitforest.com

As evolution of the latest technology music, movies, and social networks have all moved to the cloud and now FitFIT is bringing fitness classes to the cloud with these key features:

· The largest selection of Fitness Classes found anywhere. Classes include over 12 types of Yoga, Body Sculpting, Indoor Cycling, CrossFit, Barre, Step, TRX, Dance Style classes, Resistance Band Training, Body Weight Training, Kettlebell, High Intensity Interval Training, and Swingin’ Seniors.
· Bringing local boutique gym to world wide audience
· Integration with social networks so you can invite friends to workout with you and keep you motivated. Give your friends a virtual high five before, during, or after a class.
· Live (interaction with instructor, friends), Rebroadcasting (interaction with friends) and OnDemand
· HD Quality streaming with dynamic motion tracking, multiple view angle (Close up to instructor and entire class)
· FitFIT will be available on PC/Mac/Smartphones/Tablets/TV

FitFIT will be available at a simple but at an affordable price of $9.99/month in the 4th Quarter of 2014.

FitFIT is based out Orange County California and was founded by two entrepreneurs’ Frederick Lee and Mike Blake one year ago. The idea for FitFIT came about when we were trying to get back into a gym routine after coming off an injury. Going from not working out at all, to working out is a pretty difficult task, especially if you are a little over weight or out of shape. Finding the time to get back to a gym on a regular basis is challenging and the current products available to workout at home really aren't that great. They still wanted to join the hottest classes and programs out there, but really didn’t have the time. Thats when FitFIT was born.

We have been helping tech professionals find new jobs and career opportunities," explained Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
