Hello, everyone!

We're going to kickstart our weekly #GlobalEChats discussion thread. This week, we'll talk about #fitness #personal #trainer as #entrepreneurs and how #tech can change everything!

Ready? Let's go!
Let's first start with two possibilities in the future.

1. We no longer need humans as #PT personal trainers at the #gym or #field. All will be replaced by #tech and smart applications! 😲

2. Human PTs will still be demanded but will utilise #tech to improve their coaching!
Do you think #1 is truly possible? It seems a bit far-fetched, no?

Meet @ollinfit! Ollinfit is a set of three wearable sensors and smartphone app that work together as your personal trainer. Say what???

Using Ollinfit, you'll be able to workout without needing human coaching!
And while these #techs can take a while to get affordable, let's not forget the mass penetration of @YouTube free #workout videos and even apps like Keep and others that aims to guide you through workouts!

Makes you wonder why pay more for a physical human PT, no?
Maybe some people just train better with a human coach!

So let's explore option #2, that human PTs remain relevant but will utilise #tech and #app to be better at both coaching as well as #enterprising themselves as a #business!
So if you are a #personaltrainer, perhaps you can consider using softwares like @goSTATZ brings together all your #business #management under one place.

goSTATZ manages your clients' payments, scheduling, nutrition and general client management! So all you have to do is coach!
If you are an independent and solo personal trainer, it can get overwhelming to do all these at the same time.

#Tech can change that for you, for the better! With softwares like goSTATZ, you save time and the energy for what you do best: COACHING!
Bringing things back to basic though, PTs can also just use #basic #apps like Instagram and Google Calendar to boost performance, for themselves and their mentees.

Examples would be to use Instagram for Before and After shots, to motivate others and as #marketing for yourself.
And if you think.... Hmmm, why should you embrace tech and do these things differently?

Here's some reason why:
1. You can reach operational excellence. Never miss another appointment or spend hours scheduling. Let #smartphones do it for you. Free your time for better things!🏋️‍♀️
2. Digitalising yourself and your #service can be fun for your clients. You can opt for #gamification and add challenging aspects of #gaming into your workouts. Your clients can bond together as your #community and competitiveness can be healthy!
3. Increasing reliability. Your schedules are more organised, your data can be accessed through the cloud and life just becomes a lot easier. Wouldn't that be better for both you and your clients?

Moving in lieu with the wave of progress can never be too bad!
Another tangent we have yet to discuss is what if we merge the two options together! That human PTs can also use #tech to train better.

Such is the case for SportsBoleh where an exoskeleton suit is used to improve #strength #training.

Find out for yourself how #tech can irrevocably change #training for the better. Fitness has never been this exciting and progressive!
So to answer our poll whether PTs can be replaced by tech?

Well, let's just say #tech makes it possible for anyone to get #fit without needing a human coach. But human #PTs can also up their game using #tech and will always remain relevant with the aid of technology!
