Talking To Trent, May 19

In this past month I have attended a few digital workshops to better understand the digital world and what it means for the future of my industry. I took a hell of a lot away from the workshops and it really made me think outside of the typical social media marketing and webpages. 

There were things that both excited me and also scared me. One thing was by 2022 we will have our first ever digital trainer online. 

It’s not uncommon to see trainers and fitness enthusiasts on the digital platform. What we will see different is that the digital trainers will actually be computers that will be able to display empathy toward their client. They will be able to understand when your mood is up and also when it is down. 

The digital trainer will then be able to communicate specificically to your emotions just by looking in your eyes and the tone in your voice. They will be able to watch your workout and advise any corrections whilst delivering motivation and a scientifically proven workout. 

Not to mention the trainers of the future are also there for you 24/7 at a simple flick of a switch.

I do think it’s pretty cool for such technology but I also wonder what’s next and how quick is ‘next’. 

We already are a society glued to our screens. I wonder what other industries will move to this space in the near future? 

I guess over time they all will to some degree. 

It may only be early days but if you think of the advancements in the last 10 years you can only imagine where it will be in another 10 years. 

I guess it’s a matter of embracing change. The digital evolution is well and truly here and moving at a rapid speed.
