Leading audio-fitness app WithU move from strength to strength as co-founder Tim Benjamin is appointed as the British Athletics Head of Long Sprints and Relays.
The former-Olympic 400m runner co-founded WithU to deliver audio-based personal training throughout every workout, personalised to the users chosen goal and selected fitness level, direct to their device.
Tim will continue his leadership role at WithU, continuing to oversee product and content while he works with the Olympic team in the lead up to Tokyo and beyond.

“Tim will be busy in his dual role; however, he has laid solid foundations on the WithU product and content infrastructure, and with the appointment of Rory, content and performance will continue to grow from strength to strength with our incredible talent like Harry and our other trainers. It’s an exciting time for WithU, as more and more consumers embrace the trend for audio fitness.”
