Gym equipment sees technology innovation
In gyms of old you never knew if what you were doing was really doing any good. Sure there were the treadmills or stationary bikes but there was never any guidance as there is on the modern-day equipment. Moreover, with an increase in results-driven equipment like heart-rate-monitoring and calorie-tracking elliptical machines, gyms of even a few years ago are beginning to look tame.
Of course traditional equipment is still functional. It’s still a good idea to get down on the mat and stretch before exercising; it’s still a good idea to do some squats, push-ups, and sit-ups. It’s a good idea to use things like jump ropes, free weights, and medicine balls. However, when you can track your progress on newer gym equipment and really see where you stand, then you will be all the better for it.
More contemporary gym equipment offer things like diagrams, heart-rate monitor warnings, and detailed instruction. Great care has been taken in these new gym machines to make sure that the individual takes care.
With proper testing and evaluation, a sprinter might learn to reduce the airtime between steps in order to boost acceleration and a martial artist may try and improve his rhythm to ensure impeccable timing.
More contemporary gym equipment has also got the added bonus of having things like diagrams, heart-rate monitor warnings, and personalized instruction so that your workout is executed in the proper fashion.
With that in mind it’s not a surprise that technology like OptoJump and OptoGait have come into prominence in sports performance and fitness health.
These systems use analysis and measurement to help design a specific and customized training program for every athlete, no matter your sport.
