Is the Future of Exercise Data-Driven?

There’s no denying that we live in a world that is very much driven by data. Businesses of all natures are using data to drive their operations forward. So, the question is posed; is the future of strength and conditioning data-driven?

Leveraging Data in the Fitness Sector

We’re seeing big data increasingly feature in the fitness degree curriculum, as it is playing an increasingly important role in the industry by influencing new exercise guidelines. With the broad range of apps and trackers that are available, companies involved have access to the activities of clients around the clock. The fitness data that has been created from these sources can be used by businesses to improve their decision making in a number of key ways.

Workout Personalisation

One of the ways in which data is driving the exercise industry is by providing personalised workouts. The devices available today gather essential data about individuals, such as the physical activities they have carried out, heart rate, eating habits, and their sleep cycle. Gyms and personal trainers can use this data to provide a more personalised workout regime and offer new exercise guidelines to clients.

Preventing Injuries

When taking an MSc Strength & Conditioning degree, you will also learn about the importance of injury prevention, and this is something else that data can assist with. As fitness data can be tracked in real-time, both physiotherapists and gym trainers have the power to warn clients if they are exerting too much pressure on their muscles by following exercise trends that may be more than their body can handle. This can, in turn, prevent injuries.

Data Can Also Help Enhance Food and Lifestyle Choices

Health and nutrition also play a key role when it comes to attaining peak fitness. Computer vision technology can be utilised to track food intake, helping individuals to understand what they are consuming on a daily basis, with AI technology being leveraged to help clients make better decisions regarding their food and lifestyle choices.
