When we think about the internet of things, some types of connected objects make a lot more sense than others. Training equipment are great examples of tools that could be much smarter than they are today. What if gym machines had sensors that could send data to apps that give gymgoers instant feedback on exercises and track their progress? What if it logged training data automatically and made it easy to share with personal trainers or friends?

Until now, it has been difficult and expensive for gyms to offer these types of enhanced training experiences to their customers. Few gyms can afford replacing fully functional analog training equipment with updated digital models. Now, Connected Gym has developed affordable sensors that can be retrofitted onto most exercise machines. With Connected Gym, people can use their own smartphones to get instant feedback while working out.
