Technology is changing everything, even things that you thought would be immune. One of those places where we see technology having a massive impact is in the health and fitness world. There are now apps and gadgets that can help us monitor everything from what we eat, to how many calories we burn, to even how much water we drink (or should be drinking). Now, technology has invaded the world of gyms and the actual physical part of “physical fitness” and is proving that it might be doing it better. Here are 4 reasons why fitness streaming may very well be the future of exercise:
- It’s cheaper: Gyms are absurdly expensive and frequently rely on large numbers of inactive members to subsidize those who go regularly. Not only is there a monetary cost (frequently reaching the $100s a month region), but there is also a time cost that’s involved in ferrying yourself back and forth. Streaming a fitness routine at home cuts down on both of these, something that gyms will never ever be able to do.
- Time flexibility: Going to the gym or using a personal trainer means carving out a set chunk of time that can’t be moved (especially in an appointment is involved). The flexibility of streaming means that you can do a workout of any length whenever you want and have the free time. If you only have time for a 15 minute work out you can find one, do it, and then move on with your day.
- Easier motivation: The ability to motivate yourself is so much easier when you don’t have to even leave your home to get your sweat on. Motivating yourself to work out in the comfort of your own home will forever be easier than motivating yourself to go to the gym every time you want to exercise.
- Goals: Many streaming services allow you to customize and search for specific exercises that target certain muscle groups. Planning and executing your fitness routine with certain goals in mind is so much easier when you have something guiding you during every step. Unless you’re willing to shell out for a personal trainer, you won’t find this sort of thing in a gym.
These are just some of the ways technology is changing how we make ourselves healthier. This doesn’t even touch on all of the new toys and gadgets that are coming out every day either; fitness is never going to be how we remember it.
