– CLIENT PRESS RELEASE –
Performance Athlytics Unveils New Brand Identity
BSX Athletics Name, Logos and Websites Announced
Houston, TX – March 13, 2013 – Performance Athlytics LLC, a leading innovator in sports training technologies, unveiled its new brand identity today ahead of the launch of its new iPhone app, runBSX. The company will do business as BSX Athletics (BSX) and the forthcoming iPhone app will be named runBSX (formerly OOMF! Running).
The new brand was created to reflect the high-tech competitive edge that BSX provides for endurance athletes through its state-of-the-art performance monitoring technologies. BSX is dedicated to building faster, more powerful, and better informed athletes by making complex and previously inaccessible performance data simple and actionable for all athletes.
BSX is pronounced as an acronym, but represents the company’s focus on the “Basics”; the time tested and scientifically validated fundamentals that make every athlete great. This is consistent with the company’s mission to make complex performance information simple and actionable. “The sports world is filled with a constant stream of fads and fashions that distract athletes from what’s most important. These sirens keep aspiring athletes from hitting PRs and can even lead to devastating injuries. Today’s athlete just cannot afford junk miles” said BSX President and Co-Founder, Dustin Freckleton.
BSX partnered with Drew Doughtery, Creative Director at the Dana Point, CA office of NiceLogo.com to create the new brand identity. “Our team was thrilled to work with the passionate team at BSX. Developing the brand identity to fit their existing vision was truly the simplest part of this new brand. BSX is about to change performance monitoring and the new logo is simply the icing on the cake”.
NiceLogo.com created the BSX Athletics logo, color palette, look and feel. The basic creative elements of the new BSX identity, include a flexible icon and word-mark system that can be adjusted and combined in specific ways. The new system allows BSX to make maximum impact through adjustments to fit each opportunity and get the attention it will need.
As part of today’s unveil, BSX also launched its new runBSX app website, http://www.runBSX.com. The new brand was also announced and unveiled on the company’s blog and social media pages and the company’s new website will be unveiled shortly.
The forthcoming iPhone app, runBSX, introduces athletes of all levels to the benefits of professional training plans. These enhanced coaching plans evolve with athletes ever improving abilities and are kept up-to-date through routine personalized assessments. The app also gives coaches access to a wider running community and allows them to distribute their dynamic coaching plans globally. runBSX training plans offer several unique features including:
• Custom training plans written by real, local and world-class coaches
• Intelligent Pacing(TM) – plans automatically adapt to each runner’s ability through assessments which use lactate threshold and VO2max approximations to create 5 personalized training paces
• Dynamic scheduling that adjusts plan length, number of weekly sessions, and preferred training days to meet user needs
• onTrack(TM) coaching provides real time visual and audio cues to keep users at their target pace during every workout
• Tips and advice from the coach included with each workout
For the first time ever, athletes will have moment-by-moment, personalized information about their actual performance presented in a simple and actionable format. This allows BSX and its athletes to focus on only the most important aspects of athletic improvement–a term BSX calls ‘powerful simplicity.’
