Joseph Schooling, Singapore’s first and only Olympic gold medallist has launched his very own fitness app, Schooling Sport.
Schooling’s new fitness app will provide intuitive, real-time interactive audio coaching and tailored workouts based on individual VO2 Max and Heart-Rate data suitable for every fitness level. The app is available for download on both iOS and Android devices from their respective app stores.
Schooling Sport provides a smart biofeedback training system that ensures users get the most out of their workouts. Users can perform an outdoor benchmark workout to gauge their current VO2 Max; a fitness marker used to quantify an individual’s fitness level based on the maximum amount of oxygen utilised by the body while exercising. Schooling Sport is able to estimate a user’s VO2 Max to within 96% accuracy of a laboratory test when the benchmark workout is completed with GPS enabled and a paired heart rate monitor.
In addition, Schooling Sport also utilises Heart-Rate based coaching to customise a fitness program with various workouts and heart-rate training zones to maximise the efficiency of every session. Heart-rate training zones are determined based on the user’s age and will be adjusted based on the training goal of each session to ensure users get the best results from their workout.
Schooling Sport boasts hundreds of workouts and training plans ranging from running to yoga to strength training. The goal is to introduce workouts that are key to an active and healthy lifestyle. There will also be selected workouts where Schooling will coach users personally through the sessions. In addition to Schooling, users can also hear from other Olympians, World-Champions, and fitness innovators on Schooling Sport.
Fitness plays a huge role in my life and career and it was the added focus on fitness that helped me claim my first Olympic gold medal. I want to share my success and give everyone the opportunity to gain access to personalised training programs via my new fitness app, Schooling Sport.
Schooling Sport was developed using PEAR, an expert at delivering personalized, adaptive coaching programs with bespoke content using mobile and wearable technology with human coach guidance and symbiotic music.

With two-way communication and reporting tools Schooling Sport encourages and motivates users to achieve their best results. Schooling Sport Pro will be available in 2021.

These four workouts will remain accessible at no additional cost.
