Rap mogul Jay-Z and tennis superstar Novak Djokovic invested in fitness startup CLMBR

Rap mogul, Jay-Z, and tennis superstar, Novak Djokovic, have reportedly invested in a new fitness start-up. 

The world number one player, who has a $220 million fortune, and the rapper, who is worth $1billion, are said to be investing in CLMBR, a rival to the fitness platform Peleton, which Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce recently partnered with. 

According to TMZ, CLMBR is about to launch vertical climbing machines in partnership with Jay-Z’s longtime fitness consultant, Marco Borges, and Youtube co-founder Chad Hurley.

CLMBR replicates virtual climbing and features world-first machines with touchscreen displays, and classes with instructors.  

Jay-Z has proved to be a savvy businessman. His previous investments include a $70 million stake in Uber, a $100 million stake in streaming service Tidal and stakes in Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Usse cognac, valued at $140 million.  

The reported investment with Djokovic comes as his wife Beyonce joined forces with fitness platform Peloton to create a series of themed workouts for students during homecoming season.
