Introducing Artifit, the AI Personal Trainer that makes home fitness highly effective

New fitness training app with Artificial Intelligence can monitor your movements, provide feedback and give motivation just like a real personal trainer.

LONDON, UK; 28 April 2020 – Staying fit at home has become a priority for many people while confined in quarantine. While some people find exercising regularly at home a breeze, others crave the professional guidance of a personal trainer – and now accessing a personal trainer is as easy as turning on your smartphone.

AI Personal Trainer LTD has just launched the first version of an AI-enabled application called Artifit which turns your smartphone into a personal trainer that can monitor the accuracy and pace of your exercises, provide feedback and even motivation!

“Our aim is to make personal fitness training available for everyone, anywhere anytime thereby helping the world to be more active and healthy,” says Alexander Khludenev, CEO of AI Personal Trainer LTD, “We felt now was the ideal time to launch with so many people confined at home due to Covid-19 measures and struggling to stay fit. Without access to a personal trainer, home workouts can be less effective – often with a lack of individual programs, technique control, instructions or motivational assistance. Artifit uses computer vision and a neural network trained model to recognise your movements and identify any common mistakes in your exercises.”

Just like a real personal trainer, Artifit can instruct by voice and visual prompts on the smartphone screen providing guidance on how to improve and achieve your fitness goals quicker and more safely. It can count your repetitions, automatically set a stopwatch, control your resting time between sets, and encourage you to reach your targeted reps.

To start your session with Artifit, all you need to do is open the app and put your smartphone in front of you so that you see yourself on the front camera. The app will immediately start to interact with you by voice and visual prompts, letting you know what to do. Artifit doesn’t record and send your video to servers but operates locally, on your smartphone, with the help of the pre-trained neural network model.

“Together with fitness experts, our team have gathered a vast dataset of workout videos and trained a neural network to understand how exercises should look and to identify typical errors in movement. We plan to develop further models and to increase the accuracy of the measurements, including more points of the human body to control,” Alexander says.

Once your Artifit workout is complete, the app provides you with a score evaluating how well you performed the exercises and a report of any errors. You can then analyse information and try to improve in your next session. This content can also be sent to a real- life personal trainer for review or can be shared with your friends on social networks.

The Artifit fitness programme currently includes a range of squat exercises, but AI Personal Trainer Ltd  is working to deliver more workouts including planks, lunges and push-ups within the month, with the goal of developing a range of bodyweight exercises ideal for home workout use.

In time, AI Personal Trainer plans to offer a personalized AI-enabled workout program developed based on your targets, personal characteristics and results of an in-built camera-based fitness test.

Get Fit with Michelle Obama’s Trainer

At 55, Michelle Obama still has abs of steel and arms to envy both of which she showed off in a recent Instagram post. The man who has helped her maintain her admired physique for over 20 years, Cornell McClellan, can help you too.

McClellan recognizes that “fitness is the fountain of youth.” When combined with nutrition, he believes that being physically fit can help people stay mentally healthy and provide the stamina needed to fully enjoy every minute of their lifetime.

McClellan’s Immortal Body Workout was developed with that philosophy in mind. The Immortal Body Workout is a four-week, eight-class exercise series that is available on-demand for $19.99; only $2.50 a class. This progressive workout is appropriate for adults of all ages and has modifications for different physical fitness levels. If you are just getting started, you will learn to move and strengthen your body gently. If you are hardcore and already performing all the trendy workouts, you will still be challenged and use muscles that you don’t hit as often.

Although beginners will most likely not get Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s arms or abs in just four weeks, they will be given the tools to reach their fitness goals.

The Immortal Body Workout is available to anyone with a connected device, from mobile phones and tablets to desktops and laptops.
