AI Fitness Apps will replace trainers?

“Dear Artificial Intelligence

In day-to-day activities even I need your assistance

Please don’t replace my existence

I will give you humanly guidance”

– a fitness trainer

Apps that combine machine learning, body posture tracking, and image recognition have brought noticeable changes in the fitness industry.

Wether it’s Sensilk, a fabric embedded with trackers which gives signals to correct the stature, or HidrateSpark 3, a water bottle which vibrates and blinks light to remind you to drink water, fitness coaches are, as if, led astray by these apps.

But wait, there’s a hope.

Aaptiv, which launched a new service called Aaptiv Coach, an AI based assistant which makes customised fitness plans based on user’s objective, current diet plan, and inputs from fitness tracking devices, is a relief for personal coaches. Ethan Agarwal is the founder and CEO of Aaptiv. He told Tech Crunch that they are not going to replace coaches with AI, rather they will create a platform for coaches.

Here’s how it works. Coaches will give users training program using Aaptiv’s in-built workout list, diet programs and video consulting. My opinion is, coaches can market themselves to AI fitness startups. They can create their portfolio of their past experience and work as freelancers for these platforms. They have an opportunity to partner with startups or file a patent for their unique program. They can make money either by selling the patent or by giving it as a royalty. What do you think about it?

Opportunity are found in adversities.

Hi there! I am a health-tech blogger, an average book reader, food and nutrition enthusiast, and sales professional. Copywriting is the think that drives me. I can make the print on 'Buy' button fade away. No matter whether you are seller, buyer, performer, affiliate marketer, Amazon seller or an astronaut, you need to advertise with persuasion to make money. Power in words and their structuring can do wonders to make your inventory empty. 'Show me your library, and I will tell you what kind of person you are' is damn true. Books give you direction to your final goal. I read atleast 3-4 books per year. I'm here only because of the books. What is the purpose of daily life without proper food and nutrition? Health is wealth. Steve Jobs said that 'What is the use to be the richest person in coffin?'. Nobody wants to spend earned money in hospital bills. I make valuable content to food habits. I'm a rockstar on Quora! I love the art of advertising. I am creating a personal brand, you can check my IG. I have 2 years of sales experience. I sold fruit syrups to retailers, fruit juice at kiosk, mobile applications and softwares to hospitals, medicines to doctors and pharmacies and, Point of Sales machine to merchants. Sales taught me customer mindset, objection handling and most important, facing rejection. I had seen bad days and good days. Those days were worth my struggle. I will share my genuine opinions on health-tech industry.
