In 2017, Charlie and Sheera, former high school classmates, felt swimming had been left behind during the explosion of innovation in fitness. While all other categories integrated streaming audio into workouts, the pool had been overlooked. Swimming was silent, and, as a result, less inspiring. Now they’re on a mission to bring streaming audio to every swimmer, and, in doing so, get more people in the water.
how did we get here?
Water is a formidable enemy to streaming audio—a physics challenge that explains why all other companies use MP3 players. That wasn't good enough for us, and little did we know just how hard it would be to pull off!
Swim Team: Our first idea to make swimming more fun was SwimTeam - a pool-based boutique fitness class in LA. To make it work, we needed to stream audio underwater. We were shocked that there were no products out there! So, we got handy and hacked a headset…and it worked!
Enter Zygo: Finally, the solution to stream audio underwater. After years of research, the Zygo headset was born, and so much more now via our app: on-demand workouts, a tempo trainer, and more exciting features coming soon.
Pivot: The SwimTeam headsets were such a hit that our customers wanted to buy them and do our workouts in their own time. We decided to focus our efforts on making an even better headset. That way, even more people could enjoy them.
From the first headset we created for SwimTeam, our mission has been to make swimming more social and entertaining. Whether you’re new to swimming (like we were) or a seasoned pro, we hope to see you in the pool!
