From NASA to OYO Fitness, with inventor and entrepreneur Paul Francis
This episode originally broadcast on the Smart Companies Thinking Bigger network.
Paul Francis, inventor and entrepreneur, joins C-Suite host Kelly Scanlon. When Francis read about NASA’s problem with astronauts exercising in space, he contacted the agency about a technology he had developed using resistance instead of weights. He later licensed that SpiraFlex technology to Nautilus, and they used it to develop the Bowflex Revolution home gym. Francis came up with a way to miniaturize the components and launch OYO Fitness, which offers the DoubleFlex Portable Gym and a follow-up product called DoubleFlex Black.
C-Suite listeners will get the inside scoop on Francis’ path from inventor to business owner.
