Hey Product Hunt! We’re a team of engineers and product people who also happen to be fitness junkies 💪 We started Onyx with the goal of making personalized fitness accessible anywhere/anytime, and building the greatest on-demand experience without the need for expensive equipment. While we love the feedback and energy you get from real instructors/classes, we’re not big fans of the scheduling or the high cost. And while some cool products have come out that help you track your progress and bring the class home, they’re limited to few exercise and are even more $$$ Onyx puts the world’s smartest digital trainer in your pocket. With just the camera on your phone, it: - Counts your reps for nearly any exercise - Corrects your form in real-time - Measures your progress - Lets you compete with your friends Since we love PH, we're giving a free month to the first 50 people who sign up through our launch! Just use promo code PRODUCTHUNT. Everyone gets a week free 👌 If you have any questions let us know, and we’d love to hear your feedback 🙂

@asafagus why hasnt this been done before?! great idea though, well done! Question - what is your privacy policy like? Because effectively your app records people on video?
@paroma Thanks Paroma! We actually don't record raw video or send it to our servers. The tracking is done on device which is also why it's in real time :) Some depth data is logged for debugging purposes. You can read it here: https://www.onyx.fit/privacy-policy
Will it come to android?

@edward1 It will take some time but as soon as possible!
Holy shit, I was just thinking of building an app like this yesterday during my workout. Glad you already built this, but now I expect you guys to do a couple other things too: 1. Get an Android app out asap. 2. If I'm following an Onyx program which says 15 reps for Exercise A, and I do 12. Learn that, learn my limit (ask me why I stopped at 12 if need be) and then automatically adjust the program accordingly.
@parasharanmol 1. Agreed! 2. That's a great idea, we will definitely look into how we can do that while giving you the option to bring it back up as you improve
Like the many other comments out there, ANDROID PLEASE
That's funny. When I hosted a Media Hack Weekend in 2016, guys built a prototype of really similar app. Check this demo (it is in Russian, but you can see the prototype):
P.S. Upvoted!
