#37 How the Himalayas Revolutionized Swimming - Zygo: Sheera Goren

Finding Founders

Today on the show we talk to Sheera Goren, founder of Zygo. Zygo is the first underwater headset for streaming audio and live communication. I swam competitively for 15 years and always joked to my friends that swimming was the most boring sport imaginable. For hours on hours all I did was swim back and forth on the same stretch of pool looking at the black line below. But Zygo is bringing a little more fun to a sport that is too often dismissed as a monotonous activity for the old and frail...and Michael Phelps. But hey, if trendy Soul Cycling studios can make riding a bike that goes absolutely nowhere fun, why can’t Zygo do that for swimming? While Sheera's days are now spent smelling of chlorine with a constantly damp head of hair, she didn’t start out in swimming. In fact, her early passion for sports can be traced back to the soccer field.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/finding-founders/support

Episode 109 - Sheera Goren, Co-Founder & CEO of ZYGO

Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone

Two Fit Crazies & A Microphone Episode 109 - Sheera Goren, Co-Founder & CEO of ZYGO “...be SWIMSPIRED!” “...I wanted to create the Peleton of swimming!” “...we are dealing with a passionate population.” -Sheera Goren In Episode 109, the Two Fit Crazies are WOWED by Sheera Goren, the co-founder and CEO of Zygo, the first wireless headset for underwater streaming audio and live coaching. Whether you are a swimmer or non-swimmer, Zygo is going to revolutionize all water sports with its ability to transmit sound through a specific frequency that penetrates water. Swim coaches can instruct swimmers mid-stroke while surfers, stand-up paddle boarders, crew teams, can receive real-time coaching. Sheera reveals how her past experiences playing soccer at the University of Michigan, attending law school at UCLA, and working in the world of hospitality law all lead her to the creation of Zygo. As a non-swimmer who wanted to dabble in the world of triathlon, like Fit Crazie Christine, she was lost when it came to finding the right training groups to learn to swim. Sheera talked about how she created her own swim groups rather than attend intimidating Masters groups or take water aerobics classes with “older” populations. She further explains how she wanted to create “the Peleton for swimming” with Zygo and give people the ability to listen to podcasts and music as well as receive live and recorded coaching.
