In 2011, years before personal tracking devices took over the market, Bob Allison and Kristian Rauhala founded PEAR. With backgrounds steeped in innovative audio products, our two founders understood the power of sound and its direct effect on performance. Their vision was simple - help people train not only smarter, but make training enjoyable, so that they get the most out of each workout and stay motivated to accomplish their goals. From this idea, our real-time audio coaching was born.
Initially, PEAR set out to design hardware that would elevate a user's fitness experience. As technology evolved, so did our focus. We realized quickly that what users were actually craving was an intuitive, interactive coaching platform with carefully curated content. Powered with this knowledge we created a first-of-its-kind app, known as the PEAR Sports App. The development of our innovative coach authoring tools (CAT) has set us apart from apps that strictly track data, and allows us to provide dynamic, real-time and interactive audio coaching. Today, the PEAR Sports App boasts thousands of workouts and training plans ranging from running to yoga to kayaking. Our goal is to introduce our users to Olympians, World-Champions, and fitness innovators all accessible via a quick download on iOS and Android devices.
Today, PEAR is proud to have a team of twenty of Southern California’s best and brightest. Our team continuously strives to shape the future of fitness technology and elevate user experience. We look forward to being a part of your fitness journey.
