Virtuagym launches AI powered digital coaching solution

Virtuagym launches AI powered digital coaching solution
July 11, 2023

Leading fitness software solutions provider Virtuagym has announced the launch Virtuagym AI Coach, an artificial intelligence platform that provides instant, personalised workout plans based on an individual’s statements and questions in a virtual chat.

Initially available for the Virtuagym consumer app, but planned for future release to Virtuagym’s white label solution for fitness clubs and trainers, the fully automated AI Coach is a fully integrated part of Virtuagym’s broader mobile app ecosystem with features including progress tracking, challenges and nutrition coaching.

Driven by artificial intelligence, the feature instantly creates tailored workouts for users based on their specific requirements, inputted via a chat interface - Virtuagym AI Coach enhances the fitness experience by delivering fully automated training support and education for users of all capabilities, experience and resources.

It is an intuitive tool integrated within the Virtuagym Fitness mobile app and wider ecosystem of solutions that seamlessly links users to personalised workouts powered by Virtuagym’s growing exercise database of over 6,000 exercises.

The AI Coach allows users to specify their requests into a chat conversation, including their preferences such as fitness goals, exercise level, preferred equipment, muscle groups, age or duration of exercise. The AI Coach subsequently provides the user with a personal workout fitting those needs, complete with exercise instructions, sets, repetitions and 3D-animated exercise videos. After receiving the workout, the user can either directly do the workout at home or in the gym, save it to their personal in-app workout library or schedule it into their activity calendar.

Introducing AI Coash, Hugo Braam, Chief Executive and co-founder of Virtuagym, advised “tThe Virtuagym AI Coach is a prime example of how technology can make fitness and health more accessible and personalised than ever before, empowering people of all fitness levels to receive tailored workout plans through artificial intelligence.

“We believe this new solution is a real game-changer for individual exercise, but in the near future also for our business clients who are interested in making personalised coaching more efficient either through self-management or by empowering trainers to use AI.”

The Virtuagym AI Coach is connected with other Virtuagym features, such as activity and heart rate tracking using wearables, body composition monitoring, nutrition coaching and gamification with challenges.

The new solution is initially available globally to all Virtuagym PRO users in the Virtuagym customer Fitness app and can be trialled for free for a seven-day period. Future plans include expanding the capabilities of the AI coach and extending the feature to trainers, health clubs and corporate businesses already using Virtuagym software.

 Virtuagym’s Head of Enterprise, Alex von Hagen added “leveraging the power of AI is a natural next step in enhancing the way we provide affordable personalised coaching in the fitness industry.

“Our product team has worked hard to create an easy-to-use solution that can act as an individual's personal fitness companion to help them on their way to a healthier lifestyle. We’re really excited about this development and I can’t wait to be able to offer this to our business clients in the fitness industry.”
