Gone are the days of having to find the best trainer in your area to get an elite workout. You no longer have to venture down to the local YMCA or fitness center and sign up for a one-on-one session with a fitness expert to achieve your fitness goals. Today, if you were even to mention the fact that you were in search of a trainer, people would automatically assume that you are a preparing for some major athletic event. Technology has taken over the fitness world completely.
This all began in 1970 when the late Arthur Allen sold the first exercise machine that revolutionized the fitness industry. This was the first time in history that free weights weren’t needed to get an intense resistance workout. There has been no looking back since then. Join us as we look through the latest technology innovations in the fitness world.
Treadmills and step climbers alike are major revolutions in the fitness industry alone. The simple fact that you can run for miles without leaving your bedroom or climb hundreds of feet in your living room was unthinkable a few decades ago. They have now taken these impressive machines to the next level. With the implementation of flat screen TVs and fans, you can now simulate what it would be like to workout wherever you please. The screen provides a first-person view of biking in that area and the fan simulates the amount of wind you would experience travelling at certain speeds.
With just a turn of a dial, you can transform a 5-pound weight to a 50-pound weight. The way this technology works is that you have two dumbbells on a rack that have disks attached to them. If you desire to lift a lighter weight, it leaves some of the disks in the rack, decreasing the weight. In the occasion that you would like a heavier weight, you turn the dial to a higher number and it latches on more disks, increasing the weight. You no longer need to acquire a host of dumbbells to perform your various free-weight workouts, just two will do the job. While the price of these are pretty high, the convenience is uncomparable.
Fitness Tracking Devices
From GPS watches to general activity trackers, the options are endless! These devices have the ability to track:
- Calories burned
- Sleep time
- Laps completed
These are just a few of the seemingly endless features of fitness tracking devices. They come in various shapes and sizes and can be latched onto your wrist or clipped to your belt. Whichever you may prefer, they have all made tracking your fitness progress that much easier.
