PEAR Sports® today announced a strategic partnership with Pilates Metrics. PEAR is the leader in smart digital coaching technology for the fitness, health and wellness markets. Pilates Metrics is the first digital platform in the Pilates industry that allows studios and teachers to track, chart and share client progress. This partnership is part of the company’s strategy to further AI-based coaching and wellness offerings and ultimately make it possible for providers to offer efficacious recommendations for preventive care and predictive analytics for healthcare professionals and insurance providers.
Pilates Metrics has built a patented Instructor App that converts completed Pilates sessions into anatomical and biomechanical statistics and graphs, aggregating totals over time. The companies’ powerful combined offerings will create robust tools that will deliver a complete digital coaching solution to the health and wellness markets.
Bob Allison, Co-Founder and CEO of PEAR Sports said, “Integrating modalities into PEAR’s Health & Fitness Platform that emphasize functional movement, mobility and recovery such as Pilates are key to providing scientific recommendations that improve population health and wellness. We want to focus on important areas including breathwork, body alignment, balance, and posture. Pilates Metrics’ patented assets, technologies and experiences will help bring measurable results to customers.”
“I’m thrilled to join with the PEAR Team and include integrated video, wearables, and postural assessments in the Pilates Metrics App,” said Joseph Quinn, Founder and CEO of Pilates Metrics. “In time, PEAR Training Intelligence™will know when, where, what type, and how many Pilates sequences should be added to one’s regimen to facilitate the best outcomes for everything from athletic performance to managing musculoskeletal disorders.”
