As AI-powered fitness apps become more and more popular, the fitness industry is going through a seismic transformation. Can these apps perform better than a real personal trainer, one would wonder. AI apps provide individualized fitness regimens, nutrition guidance, and real-time tracking using cutting-edge technology and personal algorithms. They offer comfort, accessibility, and the freedom to work out anywhere, anytime. Personal trainers, on the other hand, provide training sessions with a human touch by offering tailored advice, immediate feedback, and inspiration. They are priceless because of their knowledge, flexibility, and capacity to handle certain situations. The decision between a personal trainer and an AI-powered fitness program ultimately comes down to personal tastes, objectives, and circumstances. In the fight for fitness perfection, technology and human skill are engaged in an interesting conflict.

Some people have started using ChatGPT as part of their fitness routine as a result of its recent surge in popularity. Particularly on TikTok, the trend has emerged, with numerous users commenting about giving up pricey personal trainers in favor of an AI fitness adventure.

So why not have ChatGPT design a customized regimen for you? While many people believe the tool could be useful, other specialists have expressed worries about AI producing dangerous or unproductive exercises.

One of the gym attendees using ChatGPT to stay in shape on a budget is Sidharath Chhatani of Denver. Chhatani intends to use ChatGPT's weekly training plans, which include a 40-minute lower-body workout and a half-hour yoga session, to prepare for his first marathon during the ensuing eight months. "I've never raced a marathon, so this is the simpler way to go about it. Simply ask a bot to complete the task for you, Chhatani advised NBC News.

However, not all personal trainers are very enthused by the developing trend. A licensed personal trainer in New York City named Jill Goodtree pointed out that not all of ChatGPT's workouts enhance muscle growth and produce the most efficient routine for users. Additionally, it lacks a method for evaluating your form, which is essential for both achieving success and merely preventing harm.

"ChatGPT cannot keep you safe," she stated. "Free is not always better, particularly when it comes to your wellbeing, wellness, and general health. You have just one body.

The average person wouldn't know how to utilize ChatGPT to create the ideal plan for them, including taking into consideration past injuries or a weak muscle section, according to Paul Romeo, a trainer and proprietor of two Koko FitClub "digital gyms" in Massachusetts. According to him, if you don't know exactly what to ask ChatGPT, you can get a program that makes an ailment worse rather than helps you manage it.

Constant fact-checking, human judgment, and skepticism are essential when it comes to AI-generated content in general. A software company's Shayan Azizbaeigi, an SVP of fitness and well-being, agreed that ChatGPT may produce a training schedule that appears legitimate and would deceive the average exerciser. If it's something you're not an expert in, some of the information it returns makes you feel like it must be accurate, he added.

Daniel Lucas, a seasoned personal trainer, told NBC News that robots cannot take the place of actual humans. Exercisers who lack a living, breathing personal trainer are not only missing out on crucial, tailored instruction, but also on the universal human need for interpersonal connection.

Human interaction and vitality cannot be replaced, he asserted. "You give or receive energy in every connection with a person. And artificial intelligence cannot accomplish that.

Your best chance for creating your summer training schedule is to combine information from as many sources as you can. Additionally, as ChatGPT itself advises, always get medical advice before starting your exercise adventure
