A great vision and an even greater team.
A great vision and an even greater team.
It’s all about balance.
For years, we dreamt of such an intelligent solution and, now, it has finally come to life. We're proud to say that we've even been recognized by the National Science Foundation as a project worth funding.
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 is a fitness addict, having learned a great deal from his 90-year-old father who (to this day) rides his bike and advocates for the longevity provided by a wellness mindset. Eric qualified for the Ironman World Championship twice, and has run more marathons and Ultras than he can count. He started his career as a computer science researcher, moving through several technical positions before reaching executive management jobs. More recently, he held the role of Chief Information Officer at Schlumberger and President of Schlumberger Information Solutions (SIS).
Eric has achieved the kind of sport-life balance that many of us only dream of. Lucky for us, they’ve now empowered an app to help us do the same – regardless of whether we’re at the beginning, middle, or end of our journeys. They’ll be the first to tell you that wellness has no start or finish line and can be achieved by anyone willing to make it a priority.
And it’s not only the technology that we’ve built. Eric continues to attract and partner with technology, health, and sport experts that do what they do for the same, pure motives. Together, we bring the science, so that you can focus on your art – the art of coaching and the art of living.

Arrived in my paradise called Boulder three years ago. So happy every morning I get up.

I can’t say I train like the rest of our team, but I do lead an active lifestyle. It’s all about meditation and mental acuity for me.

I mainly train because I like riding my bike outside, and being fit makes me feel good and be more productive at work.
I don't usually cycle with headphones, but while doing indoor rides, I recently rediscovered jazz funk. "Some Skunk Funk" from the Becker Brothers is one of my favorites.
I go to the Ardennes in Belgium a few times a year. The hills, forests, and quiet really make cycling a joy.
I haven’t been able to train recently due to COVID and back problems, but this year I want to join my local cycling club's weekly competition again.
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"?)
I train to compete in races. Setting goal times and working to achieve them is addictive.

Currently working on improving my marathon time
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 pretty much only listen to music when doing hard sessions on the bike trainer, and then it’s something heavy like Avenged Sevenfold!
I’d love to go to the Azores. 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, so I’ve neglected my training. Long term, I’d love to do one of the Xtri races, particularly Norseman.
Beer. I like beer.
