Is there a better, more fun way to get your exercise? Freeletics CEO Daniel Sobhani and FitXR co-founder and CEO Sam Cole are trying to find out.

After the holiday season, many of us will be signing up for gym memberships and trying to budge some of that festive flab. Research shows that there are a disproportionate number of sign-ups in January, with a sharp drop off in the following months as new year’s resolutions fade away.

In this episode of the Next Stage, these two fitness experts explain how tech can make exercise a more immersive, less tedious experience for us all – an experience that suits any skill level.
