The token will be traded through different exchanges. Every new member in our ecosystem would, through its investment in the FitBeat token, participate in our goal of changing the world.
Fit-Beat Redefines Licensing
Our solution will connect Fit-Beat licensed trainers, who have the best possible fitness and nutrition knowledge, with individuals who want to train and get healthier. Our blockchain-based license will provide trainers the most thorough knowledge of the human body, instructions on how to set up nutrition and workout plans, and how to properly train their clients.
Bringing VR to the Gym
By introducing the VR/AR/MR technology to the fitness world, we will educate and bring the knowledge in the fitness community to a new level, increase the knowledge of individuals and change the way people work out. We are changing the entire fitness industry.
Blockchain in the Gym
We will use the blockchain technology to track and maintain accurate details of all Fit-Beat accredited trainers. Once trainers pass our exam and we license them, they become members of the Fit-Beat community. Individuals looking for trainers with the best knowledge in the fitness industry will join our ecosystem and start their journey towards a healthier lifestyle.
Reducing Costs for Employers
Today, unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle represent huge costs for employers. We will tackle this problem by connecting with insurance companies and using our Fit-Beat index to decrease monthly costs for employers.
Enabling Better Insurance Policies
The individual user’s data on the blockchain could be used by insurance companies (with the user’s prior consent, of course) to offer those living healthier lifestyles better insurance policies. The individual data on the blockchain will serve as a proof that the user actually does pursue a healthy lifestyle
Sponsorship for Bright Stars
Fit-Beat will sponsor promising young athletes. There is enormous potential in young athletes, but many lose motivation because of insufficient funds. This is where Fit-Beat steps in. We will provide all the necessary tools to help our young users achieve their goals: knowledge, the best trainers, funds, and so on.
