Trent Ward is the founder and CEO of Forme (formelife.com), which creates smart fitness mirrors and offers subscription services such as live coaching and on-demand classes.
I met Trent in NYC and got a chance to get hands-on with the Forme Lift. I’ve been skeptical of smart mirrors in the past — I own one and have powered it up five times … if that. Still, Forme’s hardware was impressive and stylish; and more importantly, I liked how it provided up to 200 pounds of total resistance (100 per arm) and offered live coaching via a 4K screen for people who aren’t fans of on-demand training vids.
I spoke with Ward about his journey as a first-time CEO, how he gets the word out about Forme in a crowded market, and the plan for his company if the economy tanks and goes into recession.
