Finding the time to exercise and motivate yourself to do so can be challenging. It can be even harder if you’re someone who needs a little guidance. That’s where personal trainers come in!
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could have access to a trainer whenever you felt like working out? It totally would, but how would that be possible? (Trainers have lives too, you know!)
Fitnet, a new app being developed hopes to do just that—and more! Similar to Nike+ Training Club or FitOrbit that deliver prerecorded videos from personal trainers to your palm, Fitnet is working to deliver that trainer in real-time—coaching you, via smartphone or tablet, while you exercise.
The technology being used is similar to the Microsoft Kinect, using your phone or tablet’s camera and Fitnet’s algorithm to analyze how you’re doing during each workout.
But that’s just the beginning! The next phase of the Fitnet will phase out the camera analytics, and try using wearables like a Fitbit or Jawbone to send data in real time to a personal trainer. So, there would be an actual person watching and advising you step by step while you exercise.
