Despite the benefits of gym training, most people prefer to work out at home for reasons such as lack of time or confidence. However, without proper monitoring and motivation, home fitness is still far from being a viable alternative to the gym experience. This problem has been further highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The current emergency has forced everyone to spend months at home, sacrificing individual well-being for the primary aim of safeguarding life. This resulted in a change in lifestyle also in terms of physical activity, threatening the safeguard of mental and physical health. The response has been to take back old gym equipment, download fitness applications and even follow Instagram live videos. However, working out at home still represents a frustrating experience, starting with by exhausting research for workout programs, insecurity while performing exercises, and difficulties in achieving the desired results.
Gymnasio was born after witnessing the many shortcomings highlighted by the lack of satisfactory means to practice fitness at home, with this critical situation confirming the fundamental belief that physical activity is essential for a fulfilled life.
By looking at the difficulties associated to achieve trainings of satisfactory quality without the support of specialized structures and real-life guidance, Gymnasio has put itself at the forefront to provide support in the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle even in the absence of traditional fitness facilities and spaces.
To date, already existing home fitness solutions which try to tackle this problem can be grouped into two main categories: fitness apps and smart machines. The former, although easy to use, lack the ability to guide the user through the correct execution of exercises; the latter, despite being more professional, are expensive and bulky.
Gymnasio overcomes both these limitations, creating a new paradigm for home fitness. Hardware, artificial intelligence and functional design are integrated to deliver a unique, complete and smooth user experience. A wide-angle stereo camera built into a small, affordable device ensures active guidance in every environment. Real-time feedback, training history and personalized training programs are provided through a cross-platform application. Finally, the ability to share results and engage in challenges with friends makes every workout even more intriguing.
