F.I.T (Flying Intelligent Trainer)


For our prototyping final project, we decided to explore the future of decentralized fitness. Could we design a more rigorous, effective, and engaging fitness program, independent of fixed physical gyms and personal trainers?

Preliminary research revealed that people need to be held accountable in order to prioritize fitness. They also want variety in their workouts, and often prefer exercising outdoors. We synthesized these insights to prototype a fitness drone. The result was FIT, a flying intelligent trainer that gets you off the couch, helps you reach your running goals, and explores new parts of your neighborhood.

FIT holds you accountable when you’d rather sit on the couch and watch TV. You can also program it to fly at your goal pace, to help you reach your personal running goals. If you’re feeling bored with running the same route around your neighborhood over and over, FIT will guide you down a more exciting path.

Unlike many existing fitness apps and wearable technology, FIT is free of distractions, helping you focus on achieving the most effective workout possible and nothing else. Once FIT starts flying, you never have to take your eyes off your goal. Get FIT today!
