Personal Training in a Technology World

We all know that getting fit and healthy means that we need to sacrifice something. It means exercising regularly to help us lose weight, tone muscle and minimize health risks. It means getting off the couch, putting away the Doritos and creating a schedule and fitness goals for ourselves. Inspiration can be an all-important factor in getting us to wake up, get moving and to stop making excuses for why we can’t exercise. Sometimes that inspiration might stem from having personal trainer kicking you in the proverbial pants, helping you to follow a path toward a healthy body and sharp mind.

Most of us need a little encouragement and guidance from time-to-time. That’s just the nature of humanity. While others are internally driven to succeed and meet our fitness goals, some people could use a personal trainer not unlike a drill sergeant. Personal trainers are much like having a Sherpa guide you up a mountain. They coordinate and direct you through strategically crafted fitness plans, provide feedback and give you the edge necessary to transform a sedentary lifestyle into one of performance.

Yet, not everyone has the time or inclination to have an actual person aid him or her with an exercise program. Fortunately, technology has given rise to the virtual personal trainer. In fact, both fitness equipment and even video games are turning the entire fitness industry into one where users receive the benefits of having a personal trainer that provides feedback and tailored fitness training right from the comfort of home. Exergaming, as it’s called, combines the fun of game play with the unique focus of exercise, providing users with genuine home workouts, real-time feedback and engagement similar to a flesh and blood personal trainer. These new computerized fitness programs have truly transformed personal training within in a high technology world into a realm where your trainer becomes a virtual entity. The beauty of these advancements mean your personal trainer help you achieve your fitness goals without your need to ever leave your house.

"Just received the 3.2 update - outstanding!"

I really like the 3D effect for the Mitts and Sparring. Curious as to what would be involved to have the new center strike pad that is new with the N3.

"The best workout I have ever had"

I downloaded the update yesterday, let me tell you it's the best workout I have ever had. It's fun - like working out with a trainer. And the sensors are so much better, I don't have any problem with them. Thank you!

"We have had some real positive feedback from our members..."

We have regulars that use it here on a daily basis. It’s a great alternative to a cardio and strength workout plus, it’s not boring and keeps you motivated. We encourage all our members to give it a go!

"Having the Nexersys on campus has gone over great..."

The students have seen it on TV, on YouTube and in the magazines and are ready to make it a regular part of their fitness routine. We are super happy with our Nexersys and I expect we’ll have to get another one.

"Love coming in and using the Nexersys..."

My son, Jaxon, and I love coming into the Northeast Family YMCA and using the Nexersys. I teach group fitness classes at the YMCA so it is important to me that my son stays active and leads a healthy lifestyle.

"This machine is AWESOME..."

I have trained with some of the worlds best coaches. This machine is AWESOME. I get the best of both worlds. It increases your agility, power, and cardio. The cardio segment really works the hard to reach muscles and the abdominal routine is insane. I have yet to find a better machine or exercise to do high Intensity Interval Training on. This machine is everything it says it is and more.
