Smart fitness startup OxeFit has released its first consumer product, an AI-powered strength training machine called XS1. Investors in OxeFit include Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and tight end Blake Jarwin, former players Dez Bryant and Jason Witten and sports medicine leader Dr. James Andrews.

OxeFit, which is based in Plano, Texas, raised $12.5 million in Series A funding in February. The XS1 includes a bench, barbell and cables for push and pull exercises. Similar to Tonal, the machine’s motors can generate up to 250 pounds of electromagnetic resistance without any physical weights, and it has a connected 32-inch touch screen to stream workouts and display performance data.

Built-in motion sensors and a force plate allow XSI’s artificial intelligence to track movements to identify muscle weaknesses that put users at risk for certain injuries. The machine’s price starts at $5,999, alongside a $40 monthly subscription to stream workout videos.

The XSI is the consumer version of OxeFit’s XPI elite-level system, which the company says is used by athletes such as Prescott, Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey and former MLB All-Star Matt Kemp.
