Tempo, an AI Startup focusing on home fitness completed the raising of funds of USD 60 Million for the purpose of enhancing its gym system that is powered by Artificial Intelligence. Further, Tempo plans to utilize the funds raised for the purpose of expansion of its content offering through a second production studio.

At the time of live classes, notifications are sent to instructors about any mistake committed by the users, which is helpful for them to provide guidance to the users in real time. A live leaderboard is present and also permits fitness enthusiasts to compete with their friends, including other persons. A request can be made for personalized weight recommendations that take into account their experience as a whole.
Tempo offers classes both as live classes and through on-demand mode which are led by National Academy of Sports Medicine-certified trainers. They combine traditional weight lifting along with high-intensity training intervals (HIIT) in the case of full-body workouts based on accepted sports science principles. Optional trainer-curated programs deliver a series of courses that are focused on targeting various muscle groups on a daily basis. On the other hand, algorithms track progress to inform the system’s feedback features.
