Schooling Sport is available for download on both iOS and Android devices today
26 November 2020, Singapore – Joseph Schooling, Singapore’s first and only Olympic gold
medallist has launched his very own fitness app, Schooling Sport. Schooling’s new fitness app will
provide intuitive, real-time interactive audio coaching and tailored workouts based on individual VO2
Max and Heart-Rate data suitable for every fitness level. The app is available for download on both
iOS and Android devices from their respective app stores today.
Schooling Sport provides a smart biofeedback training system that ensures users get the most out of
their workouts. Users can perform an outdoor benchmark workout to gauge their current VO2 Max; a
fitness marker used to quantify an individual’s fitness level based on the maximum amount of oxygen
utilised by the body while exercising. Using the latest technology, Schooling Sport is able to estimate
a user’s VO2 Max to within 96% accuracy of a laboratory test when the benchmark workout is
completed with GPS enabled and a paired heart rate monitor.
In addition, Schooling Sport also utilises Heart-Rate based coaching to customise a fitness program
with various workouts and heart-rate training zones to maximise the efficiency of every session.
Heart-rate training zones are determined based on the user’s age and will be adjusted based on the
training goal of each session to ensure users get the best results from their workout.
Schooling Sport boasts hundreds of workouts and training plans ranging from running to yoga to
strength training. The goal is to introduce workouts that are key to an active and healthy lifestyle.
There will also be selected workouts where Schooling will coach users personally through the
sessions. In addition to Schooling, users can also hear from other Olympians, World-Champions, and
fitness innovators on Schooling Sport.
“Fitness plays a huge role in my life and career and it was the added focus on fitness that helped me
claim my first Olympic gold medal. I want to share my success and give everyone the opportunity to
gain access to personalised training programs via my new fitness app, Schooling Sport,” said
Schooling. Schooling added, “Whether it is to build confidence or to help a user achieve their fitness aspirations and goals, Schooling Sport aims to empower, develop and nurture each user’s fitness dream and
bring out the best in everyone”.
Schooling Sport was developed using PEAR, an expert at delivering personalized, adaptive coaching
programs with bespoke content using mobile and wearable technology with human coach guidance
and symbiotic music. The Company’s digital coaching solutions include PEAR Pro™, a tool that
allows individuals like Schooling to build and deliver customized fitness workouts. With two-way
communication and reporting tools Schooling Sport encourages and motivates users to achieve their
best results. Schooling Sport Pro will be available in 2021.
All users who download Schooling Sport are eligible for a free two-week trial that provides access to
all features in the app. After the two-week trial period, users will retain access to four premium
workouts including the Body Weight Circuit with Joseph Schooling. These four workouts will remain
accessible at no additional cost.
“The Body Weight Circuit is based on exercises that I do regularly and is one of the fundamental
building blocks to my success in the pool. The other exercises are a combination of warm-up and
cardio exercises. I want all users to have access to simple and effective exercises and hopefully, this
will inspire and encourage everyone to develop a strong foundation and pursue their fitness journey.
I’m thrilled to work with the team at PEAR Sports to create my own signature content for this
intelligent fitness app to engage, coach and measure health progress for our users. Each dynamic
workout adapts to your performance, telling you when to speed up or back off based on your heart
rate and other biometric measurements” said Schooling.
“With Schooling Sport, we wanted to find a way to give a unique and customized fitness solution for all
levels. Being a part of an Olympic journey is a rarity. We wanted to give others the opportunity to join
and grow through the experience,” said Clint Martin, Personal Trainer to Joseph Schooling and
Division 1 Strength & Conditioning Coach.
“We are honored to work with Joseph Schooling and the Schooling Sport Academy to develop a
personalized coaching app that includes validated custom content. It is a unique platform that
offers interactive visual and audio coaching for in-the-moment exercise instruction and inspiration.
Joseph is all about positively influencing the health of those around him, and this is his way of
sharing his healthy fitness routines with others. PEAR is excited to enable him to do that,” said
PEAR Sports Co-Founder, Simon Sollberger.
A Schooling Sport subscription starts at S$5.99 per month and S$60 per year and will provide users
access to all workouts. Users are encouraged to pair their preferred heart monitoring device and
respective Health Apps to Schooling Sport for best results and optimal fitness tracking.
