Kaia Personal Trainer has potential to ‘democratise sustainable fitness’, says Maximilian Strobel
Maximillian Strobel

Kaia Health, a digital health specialist, has created a new personal training app that could be used in clubs to offer virtual personal training to its members.

The Kaia Personal Trainer app was developed with physiotherapists and fitness experts and combines AI-powered motion tracking technology with personalised training to offer customised full-body workouts.

"The Kaia Personal Trainer is a full-body workout in your pocket" - Maximillian Strobel

To use the app, users simply stand several feet away from their smartphone camera and begin exercising with video instructions. The app then tracks the activity using a 16-point system that compares the metrics of actual movement against ideal movement and offers users personalised real-time audio feedback, advice and encouragement to improve fitness and performance.

Maximilian Strobel, head of the AI Lab at Kaia Health, says: “The app puts users in control of their performance and becomes a part of their everyday routine.

“We’re excited by our patent pending AI-powered motion tracking technology and virtual PT as it has the potential to democratise access to sustainable wellness and fitness training worldwide.”

Physical Company has developed an app that will give users access to a library of educational video content that will enable trainers to create ‘inspiring and progressive’ workouts using Physical Company equipment.

According to a release, the free-to-download app will be ‘constantly updated’ to offer relevant workout designs, as well as to reflect the company’s evolving product portfolio, while push notifications will alert users to new products, workouts and exercises.

"This app makes it possible to access literally thousands of workout videos and coaching tips, all designed to support the diverse product range we supply" - John Halls

For operators and commercial users, the app includes promotional material for the company’s APEX programmes and Evo Bench and will give users direct access to its product brochures, providing purchasing capability.

John Halls, MD at Physical Company, says: “Over the last few years the fitness sector has been driven by technological innovations. This app makes it possible to access literally thousands of workout videos and coaching tips, all designed to support our diverse product range.”

Ben Steadman

Pulse Fitness has signed a long-term distribution agreement with Limitless Gym Equipment, that will see the company become the exclusive distributor of a range of Limitless products including the innovative Free Trainer Pro machine.

Designed to be used by everyone, regardless of experience or ability, the Free Trainer Pro combines plate-loaded and functional resistance options to allow users to perform over 150 exercises. It was developed in partnership with a host of fitness experts including athletes, conditioning coaches and physiotherapists.

It features a unique bearing system that enables fluid movement, simulating the sensation of a free weight, while additional weight plates and resistance bands add a different variation of external loading.

"We believe Pulse is the perfect partner to help us drive further into the UK and European markets" - Ben Steadman

Other products in the range include the Free Trainer Active Pro and Free Trainer Dual Pro, developed specifically for gyms with limited floor space. All products feature the erogonmically-designed the Tri-Grip™ handle system, which has been designed to alleviate stress on joints and reduce the risk of injury.

Ben Steadman, business development director at Pulse, says: "The Limitless Free Trainer revolutionises plate-loaded and resistance training in one compact station that allows users to choose from hundreds of exercises to perform. These unique machines complement our existing premium product range and will bring fresh challenges to trainers and members alike."

Ricky Lee, director of Limitless, says: "We’re excited to be working with such a forward-thinking equipment brand."

John McCafferty, business improvement manager at Leisure & Culture Dundee, says: "We were looking to develop the studio space to give our customers a more diverse and enhanced fitness area and cycle studio, whilst providing flexibility around scheduled classes."

"The team at Hutchison Technologies was able to consult and advise on the best methods to do this; which has included the integration of instructor controls into our studio and exercise area and of course the fantastic feature and effect lighting to immerse members in their workout, alongside the virtual class function which will now support our popular timetabled cycle classes.”
