#100: Tom Aulet, Co-founder & CEO of Ergatta

Today I’m joined by Tom Aulet, co-founder and CEO of Ergatta — a game-based connected rower.

In this episode, Tom lays out the opportunity in creating fitness offerings that go beyond instructor-led, boutique-style classes. We talk about the company’s approach to designing game-based content. And we discuss the potential for Ergatta to enter new categories in addition to rowing.
