Racefox introduces a new way of digital coaching for cross-country skiers and runners, using AI-technology to capture body motion data and use that information to create a personalized training plan. Racefox encourages healthy exercise, helping runners and skiers prevent injury by doing exercises designed for their specific movement styles.

The objectives of Racefox are to provide runners and skiers with a digital audio coach that gives them in-the-moment feedback on their performance to help them reach their goals and prevent injury.
Racefox uses a single accelerometer feed in the center of the body that captures intelligent data from athletes in real-time, giving them an analysis of strengths and weaknesses and creating personal training plans. Racefox has a hardware agnostic strategy meaning the app works with Racefox-created hardware and the Polar H10 sensor.
Racefox motivates everyday athletes to exercise by providing a digital coaching process around training. By using advanced technology Racefox supports remote learning and motivation at an affordable cost to potentially millions of athletes.
