The Sidekick: liberate your workout, exercise on-the-go

$23,835

Thank you to all our supporters that have helped us hit our 20K stretch goal! Among other refinements, we will now be able to provide color options so backers will be able to choose how they want their Sidekick to look!

What is the Sidekick?

The Sidekick is an all-in-one multipurpose training platform for exercise on-the-go. From cardio to calisthenics, you can configure our product to your fitness needs, whatever they may be.

How does it work?

The Sidekick was designed to be easy-to-use and extremely versatile. Our patent pending clip and slip technology allows you to transform configurations with ease without compromising free rotation while jumping rope. Our terminal clip design means your exercise options are only as limited as your imagination.

Why jump rope?

Jump rope is a time-tested classic when it comes to endurance training. It is extremely efficient and can be performed almost anywhere.  

Why body weight suspension exercises?

Thanks to the Sidekick's extra-strength braid design and gravity, suspension exercises provide a simple and effective way to round out your workout. 

How can I support the cause?

Risks and challenges

Uncertainty is an intrinsic element of product design. Our idea is unique and has not been done before, so unforeseen obstacles can happen. If something does come up, we'll let you know and keep you up to date with any solution plans. This being said, a lot of work has been put into getting us to this point. Troubleshooting through multiple design iterations has led us to learn the important lessons fast and early so that we can implement the most reliable and scalable design for the final product. We’re negotiating with US manufacturers to ensure a responsible and reliable supply chain. We've identified all potential risks and have mitigations in place. One of the reasons we've come to Kickstarter is to raise money for thorough reliability testing, so rest assured we are committed to building a safe and effective product.

We're going to get the Sidekick in your hands as soon as possible.
