About

The world of running and cycling have long had ways to monitor their performance. As CrossFitters, a stopwatch and whiteboard tells us our time, but not how to improve it. Heart Rate sensors provide insight into our internal systems, but not our external output.

We wanted a tool for CrossFit. One that collected the same fundamental data that athletes in all sports use to improve. That's why we created NEXUS.

NEXUS tracks your body's movement in space to measure your external output. Then, using machine learning algorithms, NEXUS is able to break down your movement and provide meaningful insight into where you can improve.

Share workouts and compete with friends. Follow your favourite athlete’s training program. Join athletes like Lauren Fisher and Lucas Parker and see how you stack up on the Global Live Leaderboard. NEXUS is a new, connected community of CrossFit athletes looking to become their better self.

The NEXUS platform is powered by the PUSH Band Wearable - a device already trusted by professional sporting organizations around the globe.

Not only has the hardware been proving itself in the world of professional sport for 5 years, the NEXUS mobile app is already 95% complete. All the heavy research and testing is done. The same team of passionate athletes, engineers, and designers who created PUSH are putting the final touches on yet another game-changing sports technology.

Push is in over 25 pro teams including the SF 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Tigers, and Washington Wizards

NEXUS does so much more than just track your training. After you choose a Girl, Hero, or Open workout, or create your own, NEXUS breaks down every movement to give you detailed insights into how you can improve your training.

Here are just some of the ways you can use the metrics provided by NEXUS:

NEXUS constantly analyzes your motion data at over 1000 times per second to build awareness of your context, exercise, and performance. NEXUS uses this info to monitor your performance accurately and reliably over time.

NEXUS comes with an iOS app (with Android coming soon) for use both during and off training. During a workout, the app provides you with your timer and key metrics in quick, glance-friendly screens. Use the app post-workout to analyze your performance, check how you stack up on the leaderboard, and build your next workout.

The ergonomics of the NEXUS Band has been validated through years of usage of the Push Band in elite sports. Athletes of all shapes and sizes have utilized the Push Band in their athletic development to great success and the NEXUS Band builds on that legacy and years of experience.

NEXUS comes with a compression sleeve specifically designed for CrossFit. Also, the NEXUS compression sleeves come in multiple sizes and we’ll contact you in advance to arrange for the appropriate size to be mailed.

For our first release, we’ll focus on creating a complete experience focused on CrossFit on iOS with Android soon to follow. We want to get NEXUS right for tracking your workouts first and foremost. In subsequent releases, we’ll add more social features to our app as well as benchmarking tools.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges
Luckily, we have a proven track record of delivering high-quality products to some of the most demanding clients in the world -- like the San Francisco 49ers, Irish Rugby Union, US Olympic Committee and the Canadian Military. We have years of figuring this stuff out behind us.

We have been working on Nexus for over 12 months and are building on top of over 4 years of experience with Push where we have thoroughly tested our algorithms and software design experience.

The main challenges we see from here are:
Product endurance in all usage environments
Our app runs a complex algorithms engine which requires powerful processing and reliable connectivity. Balancing those needs with battery life is a top priority. We’ve extensively QA’ed Push's hardware and created automated tools to simulate all possible scenarios.

Accuracy of Metrics
We’re committed to having the most accurate wearable for tracking CrossFit workouts, and making sure we create a seamless user experience. We have some of the best experts in the field who are working to ensure you get the highest quality interaction with Nexus. Any time we see a sub-optimal experience due to prematurity, we find practical ways of addressing it. Our experience with Push and the elite teams we work with has prepared us well for this challenge.

Supply Chain/Mass Production
No risk here really. Since we’ve done this before we have existing relationships with manufacturers. We are confident that they will be able to handle the challenge of bringing many physical devices to the world.

With your help we can make it happen!
