Balancing science and emotion runs deep in our veins. Our founder, Dr. Eric Abecassis has always personified – in his own ways – the beauty that sits at the intersection of technology and passion.
Eric has achieved the kind of sport-life balance that many of us only dream of. Luckily, he’s brought together a valuable team of like-minded sports and life enthusiasts, experts in training, AI, machine learning, recovery, and more, and we’ve now empowered an app to help everyone do the same – regardless if you’re at the beginning, middle, or peak of your training journey.
Founder & CEO
Connecting with Nature, connecting with others, connecting with myself
Arrived in my paradise called Boulder three years ago. So happy every morning I get up.

To be better – fitter and healthier and a role model to my son and daughter.
The location is not as important as the people I’m training with. Jogging with my mother and sister is a blast; riding MTB with my husband is always an adventure; road biking with my dad while listening/singing to Latin music is my idea of the perfect MS-150!
I want to get back in shape and feel like I did before baby #2. A few years back I did the MS-150 from Houston to Austin and I loved it, so I want to repeat it next year!
I don’t have one, but three: crusty freshly baked bread, cheese, and a good Pinot Noir.
To prove to myself that age is just a number - to discover what is possible and push my limits. I love to race, and being dedicated to training allows me to really show up to a race ready to push and challenge myself.
Oahu - or almost anywhere in Hawaii!! Although I live in Lake Tahoe - which is pretty dreamy when it’s not snowing.

ADVISOR & OLYMPIC COACH
A day is not complete without working out – training is about physical and mental health, and getting my daily endorphins. Competition is icing on the cake.
Noosa, Australia. Pretty much anywhere with clean water to swim in, trails to run and the climate to ride in shorts.
To plan a quarterly sports adventure. New country, new mountain, new ocean, new forest, new urban center, new finish line.
Single Malt Scotch!
ADVISOR & HIGH
Initially just to get in shape. Then for the challenge of completing certain races. Now it’s almost like therapy, in that it’s often the only time during the day where I can just shut the world out and focus on me.
I'd love to go to the Azores. The climate is great year-round, and it doesn't seem too "touristy." Open-water swimming, mountain biking, and trail running seems like a nice break from "normal" training.
Get back into shape! The last year has been pretty wild (finished grad school, started new career, had 2nd child, coronavirus, and more!), so I’ve neglected my training. Long term, I’d love to do one of the Xtri races, particularly Norseman.
Beer. I like beer.
I train to compete in races. Setting goal times and working to achieve them is addictive.

Currently working on improving my marathon time
SPORTS DATA ENGINEER
I mainly train because I like riding my bike outside, and being fit makes me feel good and be more productive at work.
I go to the Ardennes in Belgium a few times a year. The hills, forests, and quiet really make cycling a joy.
After having some back problems in the past years I picked up running and rowing again and my goal is to be able to do both sports without issues and compete in a rowing race in 2022.
Any song with a good saxophone solo: George Michael’s “Careless Whisper”, Joe Cocker’s “Unchain My Heart”. Heck, even the Sunstrokes Projects’s “Run Away”. (Remember “epic sax guy”?)
HOLISTIC NUTRITION THERAPIST
I love how training regularly makes me feel, both physically and mentally, how challenging myself with a race goal keeps me motivated, and how rewarding achieving that goal can be.
On a mountain trail, as long as it’s not too technical! And I’m lucky enough to live next to the mountains.
I just ran my goal race for the season, so I have to settle on my next goal. Most likely a half marathon.
“Flan patissier,” a French custard pie. Luckily, in the US, there are not that many French patisseries around the corner!
Training allows me to build up strength and a healthy mind and body. Because of training, I feel confident in my work.
Mount Kailash, India
To stay fit, have a healthy mind, and be happy.
Chocolate cold coffee
HEAD OF MARKETING
SPORTS PLATFORM SPECIALIST
I train because when I run in the mountains, I feel like that’s the moment when I’m fulfilling my true nature. So I’m trying to be able to run as much as possible.
Up Puy Griou in the Cantal region, but the Valais region does look appealing.
