Chad Hurley, one of the co-founders and former CEO of YouTube, has joined the board of advisors at CLMBR. He is also investing in the company in a seed round that will support the CLMBR Connected and CLMBR Pure vertical climbing machines’ launch and delivery.
“The pandemic put into perspective the importance of prioritizing my health, and vertical climbing is an impactful full-body exercise that has made a big difference throughout my recent fitness journey. Not only is the CLMBR team reimagining at-home exercise equipment, it is working to democratize the fitness experience for all consumers through its upcoming advanced and diverse content platform. I’m looking forward to providing my expertise within the content streaming space to help CLMBR create a one-of-a-kind user experience that matches its one-of-a-kind machine,” said Chad Hurley, co-founder of YouTube.
CLMBR Connected aims to become the center of your workouts at home by creating an experience to burn more calories in less time. CLMBR claims that it can burn 60% more calories than other types of workouts.
“When Chad reached out with interest in joining the CLMBR team, we were very eager to tap into his expertise and background in delivering content to a wide range of consumers,” said Avrum Elmakis, founder and CEO of CLMBR. “CLMBR is disrupting the way people exercise and offers a new take on a classic machine. We aim to go a step further with our in-app experience and unique content platform. A lot of our time is now spent at home, and we want to make sure that consumers have access to a range of fitness experts at home and can walk away from our machine feeling connected to a community of like minded people on their fitness journeys. With the addition of Chad, we’re confident that we’ll be able to deliver a workout experience unmatched by any others in the connected fitness space. We’re excited to share more in the coming months.”
