3 ways technology has changed the world of sports and fitness

July 29, 2016

Over the years, technology has managed to change a little portion of every part of our lives.  We experience these changes when we sleep, when we relax, work, eat, socialize, travel…

You name it, and technology has probably changed it… and only stands to change it more.

One facet of life technology has changed immensely would be the world of sports and fitness.  It’s given us instant access to personalized fitness data.  It’s shown us how to approach exercise in a more effective manner.  And it’s allowed us the opportunity to interact with games on a different level with a different mindset adopting different expectations.

But how is this all happening?  Here are a few examples.


Smartphone applications have turned the fitness world upside down.  From tracking and monitoring to personalized workout suggestions and ongoing motivation, there’s a fitness app on nearly everyone’s phone.


Wearables like Fitbit, Garmin, and Jawbone are well known by the general public.  Many people use wearables like these to track their daily activities, but nowadays, wearables go above and beyond high-tech watches.


Technology in sports and fitness isn’t all about monitoring how far you go and how much you lose.  Technology also aims to help you become a better player at your game of choice and to help you stay safer in the process.


These aren’t the only adjustments technology has made to the sporting world.  Just take a look at the Levi’s Stadium.  This high-tech stadium combines super modern Wi-Fi technology with smartphone applications and colossal LED TVs.  You can order food from your seat, check on the wait times at any nearby bathroom, and watch live replays right from your phone.  Technology has done some rather exciting and extremely useful things to the world of sports and fitness.  It’ll be interesting to see where it takes us next.
