Spend the summer training with world-class athletes
Announcing: The Tempo Games

Welcome to the first-ever Tempo Games!

What are the Tempo Games? It’s a challenge for you to complete all classes coached by a roster of elite Tokyo-bound athletes. You’ll train like them, and you’ll train with them.
The first of many athlete partnerships, the Tempo Games brings together the guidance of athletes who will be training — with you — for the world’s biggest sporting event, alongside our existing team of expert coaches and Tempo’s instant form feedback and 3D vision.
In each of the classes, you’ll be put to the test with one of our athlete partners. Every workout is inspired by the training our U.S. champion athletes do daily. The Tempo Games is a lot more than just a workout. It’s the opportunity to learn from athletes who have conditioned themselves for the world stage and to prove that, whether you’re a star athlete or an everyday athlete, there is an inner strength in all of us. Tempo members don’t just train like champions—you train with them.

Meet Your All-Star Lineup

You’ve had the chance to train like a runner, a boxer, and most recently a yogi. Now here’s your opportunity to train like seven of the world’s best athletes, including an All-American water polo player, a pro climber, a world-renowned skateboarder, a top rugby player, a decorated swimmer, and a record-setting taekwondoin.
Here are the seven athletes you’ll be meeting on the mat for your workouts:
