The Future of Gyms. This is the fourth in our Future Of series, where we analyze and dissect one facet of life that’s been impacted by digital technology.
Today, we look at gyms. “Gyms need to incorporate newer technology and communicate how this will benefit its members.” If you thought gyms were a recent phenomenon, tethered to the trend of self-conscious fashionistas and the scourge of obesity, well, you’d be wrong. Gymnasiums, or ‘gymnasia’, go back thousands of years to Ancient Greece where you’d find dedicated exercise auditoriums typically consisting of spacious training grounds for athletic contests. The first modern-era gyms – that is, public equipment-filled rooms of the ilk you would recognize today – started to crop up around the middle of the 20th century.
We thought we’d take a look to see what the current state of play is with gyms, and whether we’re on the cusp of a technological revolution.
