Smart home gym manufacturer Tempo has announced its inaugural Tempo Games — a challenge for members to complete a series of classes led by athletes headed to Tokyo for the 2021 Summer Olympics. Those who complete the event might even win themselves a prize of their own.
Tempo currently offers a lone product, a freestanding connected home gym that utilizes free weights. Due to its keen focus on strength training, Tempo’s workouts are personalized using a one-way, 3D sensor that offers feedback on your form in real-time.
The Tempo Games will feature seven partnerships with elite athletes representing the US and Brazil, who will be training alongside Tempo owners with the company’s current lineup of coaches. In a blog post from Tempo, the company explains how The Tempo Games will work:
In each of the classes, you’ll be put to the test with one of our athlete partners. Every workout is inspired by the training our US champion athletes do daily. The Tempo Games is a lot more than just a workout. It’s the opportunity to learn from athletes who have conditioned themselves for the world stage and to prove that, whether you’re a star athlete or an everyday athlete, there is an inner strength in all of us. Tempo members don’t just train like champions—you train with them.
