Fitness Centers of the Future

As fitness technology continues to develop, we’re starting to see a lot of newer styles of training methods that are forming fitness centers of the future.  It’s interesting to see this development and what it may mean for our fitness levels and the state of our workouts.

Below are some of the main examples that will really change the way you look at physical fitness.

Exercise Tracking

You already know that tracking your workouts is important. When you have the information at your fingertips regarding what your heart rate was as you progressed through the session, what incline level you were working at, how many calories you burned, and so on, it’s quite easy to begin assessing how your performance is playing out and how close you are to reaching your long term goals.

Now the Fitlinxx is taking that to a whole new level.  They offer an “intelligent” fitness system that attaches directly to fitness facility equipment. This system learns the users’ programs, individually coaching them throughout their workout, providing a level of safety and confidence during every exercise, and tracks their progress during their entire workout.

Sounds too futuristic huh? Well, Fitlinxx already provides over 700 YMCAs, health clubs, medical centers, and commercial clubs around the world with their innovative products. Keep your eyes out, your local fitness center might just be next.

Vibration Training

Magtonic is a company that’s dedicated to keeping you safe while you exercise while encouraging muscle strength and development that will prevent injuries in the long run. They manufacture a line of personal and commercial training machines that incorporates vibration training into a stretching routine so that you can achieve better exercise result in less time and improve your overall health.

Some of the benefits of Vibration Training

  • Performance Enhancement
  • Injury rehabilitation
  • Boosts metabolism
  • Increases flexibility and core strength
  • and more…

One of their newest editions to their training equipment spotlight is the i-Shape TVR-8500, a dual-platform exercise machine that contains TVR (Tonic Vibration Reflex) Technology.  This new exercise technology combines vibration training with stretching exercises to push your body and improve flexibility.

As they expand their breadth, look for these products coming to a local gym in the near future. For more information about vibration training, read our review of the i-Shape TVR-8500.

Infrared Training

Saunas have been used for many years by certain athletes as a means to drop weight quickly, but now the latest technology shows that exercising in heat may do more than just allow you to lose water weight.

Malsatek Innovations, the makers of SaunaLite, combine traditional exercise along with infrared light therapy to give you twice the results and a wide range of additional benefits..

It’s been demonstrated that when you exercise in UV light, certain chemical changes take place in the body that helps to increase the metabolic rate while also providing you with additional energy.  As anyone who’s ever been on a fat loss program knows, energy can be hard to come by.

Benefits of Infrared Training

  • Reduces body fat tissues
  • Increases weight loss
  • Increases circulation to the muscles
  • Increases strength
  • Increases endurance
  • Boosts energy
  • Body detoxification
  • Reduces the amount of visible cellulite
  • Enhances your skin

Without a doubt, how we’ve gone about our workouts in the past is clearly going to change.  Whether you welcome this new technology or stick with your current routine is up to you, but there’s no mistaking that fitness does not need to be boring.
