About Future Research, Inc.

Having a personal trainer is the best predictor of fitness success. But it’s insanely expensive – it can easily cost $5k-$15k per year. So we’re building something entirely new.

Future pairs you with an elite coach (a real human), who trains you digitally. Your coach builds a custom training plan each week, based on your progress and schedule. They do all of the planning and tracking to keep you accountable and on-track, and check in daily via text message.
