The frantic pace of life in today’s society is making it increasingly difficult for personal trainers to earn a living in the traditional sense. However, we believe that by using the right personal trainer software, you can roll with the punches and integrate better into the lives of your clients.
When it comes to training clients in person, one-on-one, many personal trainers come across the same stumbling block. Clients simply “don’t have enough time,” and/or “it’s too expensive.”
This is where technology has stepped in to provide an alternative means of personal training, or in the least, raising awareness levels regarding health and exercise habits. In many cases, technology has effectively transformed the way individuals exercise around their busy modern lifestyles.
Wearables are the way forward
Before I go on, lets define the term ‘wearable’ – which in simple terms is a gadget that can be worn. The market has basically developed into two main categories of wearables, ‘smartwatches’ and ‘everything else’! There are even cars and clothes that link to certain fitness apps now.
For example, one of Toyota’s most recently-published patents is all about setting health goals inside the vehicle. A user can input a predetermined health goal into the car, and it will suggest ways to meet it – for example, by parking farther away from your final destination and completing the last leg on foot.
Similarly, smart clothing by ‘Athos’ contains sensors that track how your different muscles are used during a workout. This data is then transmitted to a smartphone app and displayed using an easy-to-read diagram, which highlights the activation and comparisons of relevant muscles.
Take on industry competition
Personal trainers need to be aware of the latest health and exercise-related inventions, particularly within the wearables and connectivity trends. In one sense, personal trainers could view this market as a threat and try to compete. However, with the money, media coverage and widespread adoption of wearables and fitness apps, it really is an impossible battle to win. Instead, we must look at how we can embrace these advances in technology and use them to our own advantage.
