During the past few years, AI-based fitness apps have become an accessible and efficient alternative to traditional training methods.
Their efficiency has been proven scientifically study by the American Geriatrics Society shows a 28% increase in physical activity for users who used these apps compared to those who didn’t.a
At the same time, 72% of fitness experts believe that AI workout solutions can be significantly more efficient than traditional training methods.
From building customized, interactive workout plans, to giving personalized nutritional advice, from offering VR workout sessions to powering high-end home gyms, artificial intelligence makes an awesome companion on your unique fitness journey.
Let’s explore the benefits of modern AI-based fitness appsnd how crypto gives them an additional boost.
Fitness meets AImore personalization and interactivity
Customization and interactivity are two key benefits artificial intelligence has brought to fitness.
For one, it helps create data-driven optimized training plans based on users’ unique physical characteristics, health status, fitness levels and training goals.
Second, the apps’ interactivity has also gotten a boost.
By capturing data on the pulse, intensity of the current workout and other stats via smart wearables, AI-powered solutions can do better than just track the progress but rather use this data to adapt workouts in real-time.
This gives them an advantage over the static apps and programs we are used to and ensures the traineesbeginners and seasoned athletes alike get the most out of their programs.
For even more interactivity, AI voice and text assistants provide support and motivation by offering personalized advice, giving verbal cues and sharing quantifiable insights, such as the number of calories burnt or the step count.
They can act as virtual coaches, guiding you through your workouts, helping you maintain proper formor providing encouragement when you need that extra push.
Adding precisionsmart wearables and AI-powered home gyms
This is in no way a complete list of what artificial intelligence has to offer to the fitness space.
The list of AI-powered features is growing by the day, thanks to the development of new equipment and smart devices that go perfectly in pair with the tech.
First, the quality of personal programs generated by AI is bound to rise as next-gen wearables hit the market.
According to business and tech futurist Bernard Marr, new wearable devices will be able to analyze a wider range of data, including blood sugar levels, UV exposure, respiration rates and muscle stretch, and introduce a wider range of devices, such as skin patches, rings, earbuds and intelligent clothing.
The developments of smart home gym equipment have also been trending since the lockdown.
In 2023, these devices, ranging from digital weight machines and spin bikes, to smart mirrors and yoga mats, are getting even more compact, equipped with advanced motion sensors, built-in cameras and touchscreen displays for even better control, interactivity and immersion.
Keeping up motivation through micro rewards
Often, keeping track of the progress is not enough, and we need an additional motivation boost.
According to a number of studies, small monetary rewards proved to be efficient as an incentive to keep to a healthy lifestyle e.g., exercise more for different age groups.
Hence, reward-based training programs can address this issue by providing a tangible reward for accomplishing small yet important milestones.
Modern AI-based solutions are taking this model further, leveraging transparent, fair crypto and NFT-based reward models.
Those who accomplish specific targets in their daily fitness routine get rewarded with coinsor points which can be later exchanged for gym memberships, accessories, NFTs and more, adding more motivation to training and cutting user expenses.
AIconquering the fitness market
The global fitness app market is growing. According to Straits research, it was valued at $1.21 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $5.41 billion by 2030.
AI is far from being the first trend it’s embracingthe question is, is it bound to pass or will we see the industry further reshaped by smart solutions?
I believe that with their ability to create customized, interactive data-driven workouts, valuable insights, data-driven recommendations and rewards for accomplishing small milestones, the share of AI-powered fitness apps is bound to increase, too.
There is still the question of data privacy to be solved. While some users may be hesitant to share personal information, the low quality and quantity of data available may limit the accuracy of personalized recommendations.
Yet, as AI solutions gain popularity and trust, that will incentivize users to share more health data.
As more projects embrace the technology and new, accessible smart devices appear on the market, these solutions will become even more flexible and less error-prone, helping us hit our fitness goals and live healthier, happier lives.
