When it comes to fitness, there will always be the traditional staples that are unlikely to change. Things like good old sweat and hard work will be the foundation of fitness and health for decades to come.
But some things are changing, and one of the most prominent is the addition of new technologies being used in fitness.
The days of the Wii fit are long gone, now replaced by cutting-edge tech that is suitable for gym and home workouts and is going to radically change how we work out.
So what will the fitness of tomorrow look like? Let’s find out:
The smartwatch that’s on your wrist right now is just the beginning of a new line of human fitness analytics trends that we’re likely to see going into the future.
One of the overwhelming trends in tech right now is metrics and analytics - how can we improve our understanding of the world around us using these facts. The same is starting to take place for the human body. How can we analyze ourselves to identify new areas of potential or improvement?
The way that this will be done is by making the tools and equipment we already use more intuitive. Your treadmill will be able to differentiate more about your current run, for example, measuring your stride and automatically adjusting based on your output and the level of challenge you are looking for.
This might soon extend to sensors in the workout gear we wear too.
Workouts Going Virtual
The rise of the pandemic brought about a new wave of online fitness options including zoom sessions and more, but with the increasing popularization of virtual reality, we are likely soon to see workouts make use of a whole new world.
In VR fitness, the idea is less about gaming than many initially believe. Instead, this technology helps to immerse you into new environments where your body can be an active part of what’s happening.
Let’s say that you were interested in boxing as a sport or exercise option. With this fitness of tomorrow option, you’ll be able to spar against virtual opponents that are designed to help you improve your sparring and challenge you no matter where you are in the physical world.
It doesn’t all have to be about finding new opponents though - imagine doing yoga using a virtual reality headset. You could be doing yoga in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris or on a beach in Bali, all at the click of a button.
Training Taking A Whole Mind And Body Approach
Holistic approaches to training have been at the forefront of many trend pieces this year, and that’s not going to change any time soon.
The stresses of the past two to three years have left many of us struggling with higher levels of stress and anxiety than before, and physical fitness is a great place to address this too. The fitness of tomorrow will also be concerned with improving our mental health as much as our physical health.
How will this look? We might see more gyms dedicating time to mental work like meditation or even creating all-in-one locations that include access to mental health services and other destressing methods.
