Naked Labs believes that every human body has a story. We use 3D body scanning to show people how their bodies are changing over time in an objective and holistic way. This understanding helps them tie efforts to results and reach their goals — empowering them to write their own story.
We envision a future where the world isn’t designed for any body, but for your body. Imagine clothes tailored to the 10th of an inch, dynamic fitness and health care plans, airplane seats that feel molded to your curves — all enabled by your precise digital body model. This is an entirely new kind of data, and we’re excited to help people harness it.
Naked Labs was founded in 2015 by Farhad Farahbakhshian and Ed Sclater. Farhad first had the idea for Naked while working as a spin instructor in the Bay Area. Every year around January, he’d see an influx of new clients after the New Year, all excited to make a change and get healthy. Sadly, after just a couple months, the vast majority had abandoned their gym routines because they weren’t seeing any results — even though they were making progress. Naked was designed to help people stay motivated by showing them their progress as it happens, rather than forcing them to rely on unreliable methods like weight or selfies, which can often be misleading and demotivating.*
Naked is built on the belief that the best ideas stem from a diversity of opinions, experiences and backgrounds — our team ranges from ages 23 to 60, our offices are 6,000 miles aparts, and we work with partners across 7 countries. We're an ambitious, highly-collaborative crew made up of brainiacs and athletes of all stripes. Our diversity of passions — art, yoga, cycling, crosswords, race car driving, cooking, ice hockey, languages, volleyball — help us connect with one another and our users.
