Why Fitness Trackers Could Be Big Game Changers

Five goals for better fitness

Exercise is good for you, but just 20 percent of Americans get enough of it.

It has all the whiz-bang technology and features but no way to take you where you want to go. The Human Element: GoQii (pronounced Go Key) seems p90X3 to have capitalised on that flaw. Its this very hi-tech -looking band with a curved touchscreen that can report on number of steps youve taken, distance covered, calories burnt, quality of sleep and even tracks the number of super active minutes in a day but it then throws in something that no other band can do. It becomes your interface between real human professional trainers (called coaches) who monitor your stats and progress, and interact with you in real time. From two-way messaging, specific guidance as you progress, motivation to keep you on track, check-in audio and video calls, to even vibrating your device to reward or alert you these coaches literally hand-hold (or wrist-hold) you to make sure that everything you do and everything your band tracks has context, meaning and direction.

“Its so fun to just be able to surprise and delight communities with a place that is essentially a total lifestyle destination.” A single membership typically starts around $140 a month, while the price for a family could be over $300 a month, Bushaw said. There are no contracts, and members enjoy a high-class experience, she said. “We often say were going after the top 20 percent of a demographic and what they get out of that certainly pays for itself over and over again,” Bushaw said. Long said she would have preferred a manufacturing or biotech business in keeping with the zoning, but would be happy to have the fitness center come in.
