Race Yourself

Exercise is changing.

At the cutting edge of fitness meets entertainment, Race Yourself, is the world’s first fitness games company leveraging wearable technology, and augmented reality. We are building a unified digital fitness platform across mobile, web, and wearables (head mounted displays like Glass, Smart Watches etc). Our games and challenges motivate ‘Racers’ to achieve their personal best (PB) by allowing them to live-race a three dimensional avatar of themselves (previous run/cycle), their friends, celebrities, or even flesh eating zombies pursuing at their target pace.

On foot, bike (in future skis or snow board), whether you’re outdoors or in the gym, a serious aspiring athlete training for a big event, or a casual fitness enthusiast; Race Yourself provides you real-time on-screen technique feedback and encouragement during your exercise and sporting endeavors.

Our vision is to bring the adrenaline-addictiveness of gaming to exercise, to do what Wii Sports did for the Wii but for Glass. With an in-app purchase model harnessing game economy mechanics similar to Clash of Clans, we are creating something healthy that people will want to be hooked on.

The experience is best shown in our 1 min concept video, which has had over 185,000 views this last month. http://youtu.be/39W6CMpdGsM
