If you’re looking for a way to get in shape that is both entertaining and high-tech, you’ve come to the right place.
We have gathered some of the most innovative workout technologies and fitness apps that should pique the interest of any geek looking to get in shape.
High-tech fitness equipment can be exciting to use and keep you interested in your workouts.
Here are some of our favorite pieces of workout equipment that geeks might enjoy.
This product is a combination of a personal trainer and a fitness tracking app wrapped up in a stylish and convenient wall-mount mirror.
You can access live training sessions with certified personal trainers, go through preprogrammed workout courses, or create your own routine. You can easily learn boxing and yoga or perform at-home cardio sessions to burn off fat.
The mirror’s surface has a display screen that allows you to watch a lesson, check your workout stats, and make sure your movements are done in the correct form. It’s also capable of playing your favorite music and can give you personal feedback to help you improve your performance.
Backslash Fit Smart Mat
This is a smart yoga mat that makes storing and transporting it a breeze.
Its smart technology self-rolls the mat up after use to give you the perfect roll each time. Its surface sticks to itself, making straps and carriers unnecessary.
The mat is soft and comfortable to lay on while performing yoga moves or other types of floor exercises. It can connect to Alexa for a pre-programmed five-minute flow session that is a great starting place for beginners.
Twrist and Sweat Weights
This product allows you to adjust the weight of your dumbbells easily.
Its surface is tactile and uniquely shaped to encourage proper hand placement and prevent slippage.
The dumbbell’s base is about three pounds and additional weight can be added as you increase your strength.
It is also capable of connecting to an app that demonstrates which muscles are being targeted with each exercise.
If you’re not looking to spend much money on geeking-out your workout, fitness apps might be your next best option.
Here are two of our favorite apps that we think geeks might enjoy.
This app combines storytelling with running. When you log into the app, you’ll be treated as “Runner 5,” a survivor of the zombie apocalypse. You’ll be sent on missions to collect intel, supplies, and secrets for your base camp. The more you run, the stronger you can build your in-app camp.
The narrator dictates a mission for you to complete as you run. You might be warned about approaching zombies that you’ll have to speed up to avoid being eaten by, or you might encounter safe zones that allow you to jog or rest.
The app allows you to stay interested in your run as you aim to outpace hordes of zombies and collect supplies for your virtual base camp. While you run, the app tracks your distance, speed and even which song from your playlist motivated you to run fastest.
This program allows you to step into the virtual mech battle suit AEGIS One to fight off villains and save your city.
To maneuver your suit and power its weapons, you’ll have to complete various types of exercises. The more exercises you do, the more powerful and useful your virtual suit becomes.
Your progress is tracked by a camera-activated motion tracker that counts your reps and the number of calories you have burned and converts them into power-ups for your suit.
You can cast the app to a tv screen to allow you to perform full-body exercises within the comforts of your home.
The internet is such an obvious resource you might overlook it. If you live in Albuquerque, you can go online and find an Albuquerque gym. The same applies whether you live in London, New York, Boise, or anywhere! It’s almost as if the internet wants to whip you into shape.
The internet allows you to easily find and join gyms near you that fit your fitness needs. If you’re more of a homebody, then you can enjoy free access to a plethora of online workout tutorials and lessons on streaming sites like YouTube.
There are many ways that geeks can access and enjoy exercising. If you utilize the resources around you, you’ll be able to find your ideal form of exercise within your price range and current physical capabilities.
