AI Fitness App Zing Coach Lands $10M


Zing Coach is upping the AI fitness stakes.

What’s happening: The Munich-born customised coaching app closed a $10M Series A led by Zubr Capital and TriplePoint Capital.

Personalising virtual sessions, Zing Coach is tripling down on AI features to serve its ~1M base:

  • The app’s machine learning automatically progresses workouts based on training patterns and real-time motion tracking.
  • After acquiring Zenia earlier this year, Zing Coach integrated its tech to assess emotional state.
  • Tracking progress, its body composition scanner gleans data like body fat percentage and lean mass index.

Outsmarting Competition

Beyond a growing list of smart PT apps, AI-ification is everywhere.

  • In connected fitness, strength brand Tempo shifted from hardware to motion-tracking, and BHOUT is scaling its smart boxing bag at home and in-studio.
  • EGYM’s BioAge and Technogym Checkup use AI to translate wellness screenings into in-gym training plans.
  • Licensing tech to others, Sency supplies motion tracking with vocal and visual feedback, and FitXpress developed API-ready body scanning.

Elsewhere, wearable makers are feeding user data into lifestyle coaching features, with Samsung, Apple and Fitbit all rumoured to be trying to one-up WHOOP.

Takeaway: Researchers say humans make AI coaches more effective, but for the 50% who need and want to start exercising in the first place, affordable personalised fitness experiences like Zing Coach’s are emerging at the right time.
