These are the latest FitTech startups looking to change the face of the fitness sector and revolutionise physical activity, as part of startup accelerator programme ActiveLab. Always game for sharing word on innovative startups - here's a brief look at all eleven...

Eleven new FitTech companies have joined the battle against physical inactivity via ukactive’s ActiveLab programme which aims to provide the launchpad for innovative solutions that can overturn the physical inactivity crisis, scaling the most promising FitTech startups worldwide through networking, workshops and investment opportunities.

ukactive is the UK’s leading not-for-profit health body for the physical activity sector, with almost 4,000 members from activity providers to major consumer brands, training facilities and equipment manufacturers. This year’s ActiveLab cohort includes representatives from Britain, the USA, Australia, Belgium and Ireland, and features an array of disruptive concepts with the potential to be the next breakthrough capable of reducing the barriers to physical activity.

The selection process saw more than 120 companies from across the globe apply to ukactive to join the 12-week ActiveLab programme, with the final 11 FitTech focused companies including representatives from Britain, the USA, Australia, Belgium and Ireland.
