While AI Coach is initially available for consumers only, Virtuagym expects a future release for clubs and trainers
Virtuagym, a global provider of all-in-one health and fitness software solutions, has launched Virtuagym AI Coach, leveraging the power of artificial intelligence to create customized workouts based on specific user requirements.
Virtuagym AI Coach offers fully automated training support and education for all fitness enthusiasts and is easily integrated with the Virtuagym Fitness mobile app and ecosystem.
Users specify requests via a chat conversation, listing fitness goals, level, preferred equipment, muscle groups, age and duration of exercise. The AI-powered coach then provides a customized workout based on the information provided, with instructions, sets, repetitions and even 3D-animated videos.
After a fitness enthusiast receives their customized workout recommendation, they can do the workout at home or in a fitness club, save it to their in-app workout library or schedule it for later.
Hugo Braam, Virtuagym CEO and co-founder, says the new product is a prime example of how technology and AI can make fitness and health more accessible and personalized than ever before.
“We believe this new solution is a real game-changer for individual exercise, but in the near future also for our business clients who are interested in making personalized coaching more efficient either through self-management or by empowering trainers to use AI,” Braam said.
The new offering is available to all Virtuagym PRO users in the Virtuagym customer fitness app or with a free 7-day trial.
“Leveraging the power of AI is a natural next step in enhancing the way we provide affordable personalized coaching in the fitness industry,” said Alex Von Hagen, Virtuagym’s head of enterprise. “Our product team has worked hard to create an easy-to-use solution that can act as an individual’s personal fitness companion to help them on their way to a healthier lifestyle. We’re really excited about this development and I can’t wait to be able to offer this to our business clients in the fitness industry.”
