PNOĒ is the world’s first fitness training technology to equip fitness and health professionals with sophisticated biometric analysis methods and the power to harness the full potential of cardiometabolic testing. The PNOĒ Metabolic Analysis System builds a personal metabolic profile in just 10 minutes, taking clinically accurate measurements of metabolic, heart, lung, and cellular fitness in just 10 minutes. PNOĒ’s Precision Nutrition, Virtual Sessions, Group Training, and Workout Builder then offer them a unified experience powered by their personal metabolic profile.
PNOĒ Use Case
PNOĒ sells its proprietary training systems to fitness and health professionals, as well as gyms. Since customers need to get the hardware before being able to use it with their own customers, PNOĒ needed a payments solution that they could plug and play to give their customers more flexible payment methods.

The benefits of B2B buy now pay later are often overrun by the overhead costs and development resources it could take to have the kind of ideal payment experience merchants are after. Thanks to Balance, PNOĒ didn't have to settle.
