Enjoy Going to the Gym With This One Weird Trick

on March 27, 2014

It is 2014. Why am I still having the same experience in the gym I had 20 years ago? I don’t have anything else from 20 years ago!

(in all actuality, the reason I am having the same experience is because I pay 10$ a month for my membership)

BUT this is the experience I’d like to have when I go to the gym:

I’d like to select my goals by computer when I start a workout program. Endurance training, build muscle, work on certain muscle groups, rehabilitation, weight loss- there would be infinitely customizable program options depending on your goals.

Then, each time you went to the gym you would have your program, perhaps on your smart phone. You would swipe your card at a cardio machine and the machine would pull up your workout and set the time, duration and intensity based on your goals and how you are progressing along your program. For instance, if you are training for an endurance event, some days would be short and fast, others long and steady, it could even give you an interval workout.

On to the strength machines- you swipe you card and it tells you how much to lift and how many reps. It automatically increases your weight over time in line with your fitness goals.

Finally, on my phone or pc, it would give you reports so you could track your progress, a social media component complete with badges and unlockables, a food journal, and a way to sync with any personal fitness monitors. I love charts and graphs and data.

Yeah. This is the experience I’d like to have at the gym.
