LynxFit by Byte an Atom Research, Inc., a company with the aim of evolving how we think about fitness software, has launched their fitness exercise application on Google Glass. LynxFit is the first health and fitness experience built from the ground up for Google Glass. Right out of the box, LynxFit gives users a growing netflix-style library of fitness content and extends to other platforms like Google Chromecast and sensors of a wearable computer. The company has a vision of leveraging innovative technologies to enable healthy lifestyles.
“Having Google Glass act as a personal coach while you train could change how we get fit,” said Stephen X. Graham, Managing Principal, Crosshill Financial. “We have been very impressed with the team’s vision, speed and laser focused execution on building a fitness experience for wearable computers. We are excited to be part of the LynxFit journey.”
LynxFit launches as a featured app on Google’s MyGlass with fitness glassware that provides video based instructional and gamified content aided by the hardware sensors available on Google Glass. The software provides vocal and visual motivation such as logging your activity and pushing you along as you workout to a variety of fitness content provided by Byte an Atom Research content partners from around the world. Premiering in early June 2013 as a proof of concept, the glassware received critical acclaim from Fox Business News, Mashable, Forbes, Geek.com, NBC News and great reviews from Glass explorers testing the app. With the simple premise of Subscribe, Schedule, Start a Workout, and Share, LynxFit gives its users a better way to workout without the hassles of a second screen while keeping the user on track to a healthy life.
“This is just the beginning, we have an active community of users getting healthy with our product every day, they are challenging each other and giving us feedback. We plan on expanding our library of fitness content so that you’re never bored.” said Noble Ackerson, CEO, Byte an Atom Research. “Given the sleek nature of Google Glass, we’re able to deliver this content to our users right when they want it, giving them a community that will motivate them to hit pace, intensity and endurance goals on their journey to a healthy life.”
“LynxFit delivers a total, fun and motivational fitness experience to our audience. As we guide our users towards their goals we can also deliver useful metrics for our partners to improve their content,” noted Cecilia Abadie, CTO, Byte an Atom Research. “For the first time, our partners can fine tune their content offerings to fit the ever growing audience spending billions of dollars each year on fitness related software solutions.”
LynxFit’s aim is also to continue to leverage leading edge technology and innovations to fulfill the mission of guiding everyone on a path to a healthier life.

"So now, armed with the sensors in your Google Glass device, we deliver interactive gamified fitness content on the big screen TV for you to enjoy by yourself or to challenge your friends," said Mauro Canziani, Chief Architect at Byte an Atom Research. "Imagine playing a game like Super Mario Brothers from Mario's perspective on your TV while using the motion tracking functionality in Glass. We want to deliver an experience where you go through a 30-day fitness program of choice, while you jump, dodge, duck, and high-knee run in place in your living room, out in the park, or in your hotel room."
