DeltaTrainer, a virtual fitness training platform, announced a $3.3 million seed funding round.
The round was led by TenOneTen Ventures, with participation from Alpha Edison, Maven, and other angel investors.
The company plans to use the new funds to hire technical talent, expand its roster of personal trainers, and for marketing and customer acquisition.
DeltaTrainer offers a one-on-one remote personal training platform. The company’s platform is designed to provide one-on-one virtual personal training by tracking each members’ movements via Apple Watch motion analysis.
According to the company, each member is paired with a fitness trainer who provides individualized pacing and form feedback, expert motivation, and personalized workouts that integrate the equipment that members already have and use at home.
“We founded DeltaTrainer to make one-to-one expert personal training truly accessible and affordable for anyone, particularly those people who have repeatedly tried and failed to reach their goals,” said Matt Spettel, founder, and CEO, DeltaTrainer.
Matt Spettel said: “Personal training is the best way to get results, but it’s expensive, and trainers often have limited time and resources. With DeltaTrainer, a real fitness expert holds clients accountable and makes goals easier to meet with custom workouts and nutrition plans, ongoing motivation, and constant contact because your stats and your program are always on your wrist.”
“DeltaTrainer is unique in that it offers an entirely customized fitness program with a dedicated expert, essentially using data to give trainers super-powers,” said David Waxman, partner, TenOneTen Ventures. “The human element keeps clients accountable and motivated, and the trainer’s ability to tailor programs based on what equipment is available makes DeltaTrainer accessible to anyone, no gym required.”
