What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Get Fit In Minutes...
Get Fit In Minutes...

Did you know that as much as 80% of people don't get the amount of exercise that they should?  The excuses are many:

  • Exercise is too difficult 
  • Time consuming
  • Costly
  • Boring

Most people don't know where to start and are quickly discouraged when they begin a program only to find it is really meant for people who are already fit.

After years working as a personal trainer and helping hundreds of clients overcome their individual fitness barriers, ANABO (uh-nah-boh) founder/creator, Billy Yancey, recognized the need for a program that works for ANYONE.  His research resulted in the ANABO Fitness Program which is:

Fit for YOU - the program begins with a data driven FitEval to determine which of the 5 fit levels  the app thinks you  should start with, and each level offers 3 degrees (mild, medium and HOT) so you are continually challenged as the application  learns from you.  Using an intelligent database the app will continually update your profile based upon inputs from you and from each individual workout.  The app is a virtual trainer walking the path with you.  

Time Based - 9, 12, and 18 minute workouts maximize​ your effort in a prescribed amount of time and increase individual results by giving 100% effort for a specific amount of time creating a metabolic deficit forcing the body to burn stored body fat in order to recover.

Directed - The program offers a 6-week progression of varying intensities so your body doesn't become conditioned to any one routine and you don't find yourself bored.  The path is clearly defined, stay in your lane and you can expect immense results by conditioning your mind and body to get stronger together and learning to conquer stress with fixed amounts of rest.

This approach makes ANABO ​a disruptive innovator in a market bombarded with “traditional workout” platforms. Others are based off of the “one size fits all” mentality. Starting with the fitness evaluation, ANABO ​focuses on the individual and strengthens them in steps. ANABO ​gets you fit in minutes.  Using our unique approach applying machine learning to fitness, the app will push you at a pace customized for you. 

ANABO has been successfully delivered in our local center for well over 10 years.  In the past two years we have implemented an automated, data-driven smart app, a virtual trainer, that has essentially become a digital ANABO fitness coach for our clients.  Now it is time to take it to the WORLD. This campaign will raise the funds to continue developing the technology to do just that.  

To make the jump from the local gym to the WORLD, ANABO needs to be portable - in the form of a mobile application that can be  available to you with a subscription.

Upon reaching our goal,  initial funds will be used to:

  • Create the code which will use machine learning to match the workouts with the users abilities and needs.  
  • Film the demonstration videos using people of all types, abilities, and backgrounds to let you follow along with someone you are most comfortable with.
  • Develop and implement a marketing campaign that spreads the word to iOS and Android user so that they too can become a healthier version of themselves

Future funding would allow the program to expand:

  • Code ANABO nutrition module
  • Expand to offer the in Gym experience to other fitness centers around the world

Risks and challenges

The risk we face are similar too many other start up technology companies. We are prepared to face the challenge of working with development teams, marketing the brand and supporting rapid growth when the app hits the market. Our team of experienced Fitness, technology, business development and marketing experts has the knowledge and experience to overcome these issues.
