ABOUT JUMP IN
In the beginning...
Jump In was originally designed as a life-size exercise board game. The creator, Justin Matthews, hoped to use the game as a fun way to combat a serious issue: childhood obesity. The board game garnered regional attention and even won several entrepreneurial competitions. While things were going well, Justin knew they could be going even better so he shifted his attention to creating a mobile version.
The Jump In you know today is a mobile app that aims to give players a diverse and fun work out. The app provides a random full body work out every time. Unlike other workout apps, there is no need for a wearable device because the app tracks your reps through a motion sensor. The motion sensor also encourages proper form of each exercise. To push users even more, competition is embedded in because every game requires the user to go head to head with the computer.
Today you can play against the computer; tomorrow you will be able to compete with friends anywhere and everywhere. Jump In will be the Words With Friends of working out. Not only that, but there will be defensive power ups to make workouts tougher on opponents, additional exercises, and much much much more.
Jump In brings together Justin's two passions which are sports and technology. He loves being active, trying new things, and eating Twizzlers.
Since he's famous, who better to help market the idea? Plus he's the CEO's younger brother so he has to. JMatt JMatt JMatt is currently a professional football player for the Buffalo Bills.
