Perfect Burpee | The Perfect Workout Mat for Athletes

$41,761

THE WORKOUT MAT YOU NEED TO ACHIEVE ANYTHING

Perfect Burpee started after one too many burpees on a flimsy yoga mat in our apartment. We realized that traditional yoga and workout mats were not designed for high energy exercises such as cross training, P90X, kettlebell workouts, and yes of course - burpees.

Workout mats are too small, slippery, and tear easily with shoes. So, we created Perfect Burpee workout mats - long enough for burpees, wide enough for pushups, and durable enough for shoes or kettlebells.

STRETCH GOALS

We hit $20,000, so our Perfect Burpee Original in GUNMETAL and Sweat Guard (Towel Mat) in ELECTRIC YELLOW are unlocked!

PERFECT BURPEE CARRY STRAP UNLOCKED! We've hit $35k and the Perfect Burpee Carry Strap is now unlocked. If you’ve pledged for either the Original or Sweat Guard (Towel Mat), we’ll include the Carry Strap completely free. It’s our way of saying thank you.

Want to add some personality to your Perfect Burpee Original? If we hit $50k, a new color option is available of STEEL BLUE. If we hit $75k, RANGER GREEN becomes available.

When the Kickstarter campaign is completed, you will be emailed a survey, at which time you may select your color and shipping information.

MADE FOR ATHLETES

The most advanced personal workout mat ever made. Period.

BACKER REWARDS

PERFECT BURPEE ORIGINAL - GUNMETAL

LARGE ENOUGH FOR ANY WORKOUT - Perfect Burpee Original is larger than standard yoga mats and is engineered specifically for agility and strength workouts such as bodyweight workouts, cross training, P90X, Insanity, and kettlebell exercises.

TRI-LAYER TECHNOLOGY - An optimal combination of grip, durability and slip-resistancethrough a combination of nano-particle infused TPE, cotton scrim, and natural tree rubber.

CLOSED CELL SURFACE - Keeps out dirt and moisture (sweat) from seeping into the mat and breeding bacteria for better durability.

EARTH FRIENDLY - Perfect Burpee is eco-friendly, made from biodegradable natural tree rubber that cushions and supports your body while protecting the planet.

SWEAT GUARD (TOWEL MAT) - ELECTRIC YELLOW

We tested Perfect Burpee with Crossfitters, Bodybuilders, Professional Athletes, and every day fitness enthusiasts. While Perfect Burpee works great for the majority of exercisers, we found that for those in very hot and intense workout conditions, such as bikram yoga, we needed something that could absorb sweat and create complete wet-grip…

As an accessory to Perfect Burpee Original, we are also releasing the Sweat Guard (Towel Mat), powering sweaty workouts.

BI-LAYER TECHNOLOGY - A fusion of a natural rubber base and microfiber top surface. The rubber bottom layer adheres to surfaces which keeps it from shifting, while the microfiber top layer absorbs sweat and prevents you from slipping.

WASHER FRIENDLY - Don’t worry about stinking up your Sweat Guard. It’s machine washer friendly!

THE ULTIMATE SYSTEM - Perfectly sized to fit on top of your Perfect Burpee Original. The combination of mats form the ultimate workout surface which cushions impact while absorbing sweat.

OUR STORY

When most people hear the word burpee, they cringe. Why? Because burpees challenge both the mind and the body. Our mission is to empower athletes in achieving their ultimate fitness and performance goals. In celebration of our Kickstarter launch and the New Year, we set our own goals of completing 10,000 burpees.

Although we have been long time friends and serial business partners, the two of us come from extremely opposite ends of the fitness spectrum. To put things simply, David has never really exercised consistently, and Justin just completed his first IRONMAN 70.3.

Our 10,000 burpee challenge is a testament to the fact that everyone is capable of overcoming seemingly impossible challenges, and if you have always dreamed of having a picturesque physique, it’s simply a matter of sweat and perseverance to achieve your goal. Regardless of what end of the fitness spectrum you come from, you can achieve anything.

Join us in setting extraordinary goals for 2015 and crushing them!

-Justin and David

WHATS THIS 10,000 BURPEE CHALLENGE???

We are developing our first 2 ebooks, Couch to 5k (5,000 burpees) and Fit to 10k (10,000 burpees) - workout guides for burning fat, building muscle, and harnessing the power of the burpee. To make sure that we deliver the best possible program for you, we decided we'd test the programs on ourselves first. We’ll be posting our workouts, nutrition regimen, and body transformation photos with all of our backers.

KICKING IT FORWARD

We are committed to the crowdfunding community and now that we are funded, our team is pledging 5% of our finished product profits back into other Kickstarter projects. Kickstarter truly is an amazing platform for up-and-coming entrepreneurs and kicking 5% of our profits to other projects is our way of showing appreciation to each of our backers and the entire crowdfunding community.

PERSONAL COACHING REWARDS

Justin and David are serial entrepreneurs who launched their first company together before graduating college. Justin is a marketing guru as well as web designer/developer while David has extensive experience in business development and strategy.

If you back either the HOW TO WIN WITH KICKSTARTER or BUSINESS ACCELERATOR rewards, Justin and David will provide you with the dozens of email templates, landing pages, campaign schedules, and pricing models used to launch this Kickstarter. They will also work with you to launch your very own business and/or crowdfunding campaign.

WHAT'S NEXT?

We’ve partnered with a factory that manufactures high-end yoga and workout mats for many large fitness companies. They have an experienced team to assist with quality control, shipping, and logistics.

We want you to have your Perfect Burpee Original, Sweat Guard, or both as soon as possible. Here’s our plan to achieve that:

  • Jan - Feb: Kickstarter campaign.
  • March: Engineering and prototype iterations and tooling orders.
  • April: Manufacturing setup, quality assurance and product validation.
  • May: Production in large batch quantities.
  • June: Shipping and fulfillment. Ebooks distributed.
  • July: Perfect Burpee First Class hosted in Boston.
  • July - Aug: Justin and David fulfill personal coaching rewards.

Risks and challenges

We went through a lot of iterations in designing our products and tested almost every mat on the market to get Perfect Burpee Original and Sweat Guard where it is today. Everyone who tries it, loves it, and with your help we will be able to share our invention with the world.

In order to get Perfect Burpee mats to an affordable price, we need to produce in large quantities. We need backers like you to share our vision of changing the way we workout at-home or on-the-go to make this possible. With your backing, we’ll pay for our first order of product which will include multiple color schemes of Perfect Burpee Original as well as the Sweat Guard.

As we transition to full-scale production after this successful Kickstarter campaign, we are confident that we can fulfill our promises to our backers and have Perfect Burpee in their hands this summer. We are committed to being transparent and keeping our backers in the loop. Expected delivery is late June.
