How AI is Influencing the Future of Fitness Content | Ghita from Techbible

The fitness industry is experiencing a digital transformation fueled by powerful AI tools. OpenAI's recently launched text-to-video tool, Sora, is just the tip of the iceberg. This article explores how AI is influencing the way fitness content is created and delivered, along with the potential impact on fitness professionals.

Sora: Democratising Video Production

Creating high-quality fitness videos has traditionally been a hurdle for many trainers. Expensive equipment, video editing skills, and a comfortable presence on camera can be significant barriers. Sora eliminates these hurdles by allowing users to generate videos with minimal technical expertise. Simply input your workout routine, select a virtual instructor avatar (or even upload your own!), and Sora takes care of the rest. This opens doors for personal trainers, athletes, and fitness enthusiasts to create engaging content and reach wider audiences.

ChatGPT 4 & Clause 3: Paving the Way for AI-powered Instructors

Imagine having a personal coach readily available to tailor workout plans and nutritional advice. ChatGPT, a large language model, is making this a reality. Users can input their fitness goals, limitations, and preferences. ChatGPT then analyses this data and generates personalised workout programs, taking into account factors like muscle groups targeted, workout intensity, and dietary needs. This allows individuals to train more effectively and efficiently, maximising their results.

People are already thinking about what might come after GPT-4. Now the question arises: what type of multimodal AI does OpenAI have, given GPT-4 is almost 2 years old? So let me give some predictions on what GPT-5 might look like:

  • First obvious, it will be a ground-up multimodal LLM with support for video, image, audio, text, and sound etc.
  • Long-term memory will be near-infinite as it will have a smart implementation of huge context length with internal RAG (due to better latency) implementation. We have seen a glimpse of context length in Gemini 1.5 Pro.
  • All known benchmarks will be near one hundred percent solved.
  • Architectural changes will greatly support agent frameworks.
  • Hallucinations will be super rare.
  • It will be described as AGI.

HeyGen and Synthesia: Clone Yourself, Expand Your Reach

Tools like Hey Gen and Synthesia offer another exciting avenue for fitness creators. These platforms allow users to create personalised avatars that can mimic their voices. Imagine a yoga instructor creating an avatar version of themselves, in different languages, catering to a global audience. This technology can be particularly useful for fitness professionals who lack the time or resources to create content in multiple languages. The limitation of course is it can’t clone the poses just yet! 

Collaboration is Key

While AI tools offer numerous benefits, concerns exist regarding their impact on human trainers. Some worry that AI-generated content could replace the need for human interaction. However, a more likely scenario is one of collaboration. AI can automate repetitive tasks like workout plan generation and basic form feedback, freeing up trainers to focus on personalized attention, client motivation, and advanced technique coaching. I recently participated in a BBC programme about how AI is impacting the performance industry in general, Check out what I had to say about this here

The Future of Fitness Content: A Blend of Human Expertise and AI

The integration of AI is sure to reshape the fitness industry. Here's a glimpse into what the future might hold:

  • Increased Accessibility: AI tools can make fitness content more accessible by offering personalised plans, overcoming language barriers, and providing virtual instruction regardless of location or availability.
  • Enhanced Engagement: Interactive AI instructors can personalise workouts and offer real-time feedback, leading to a more engaging and motivating experience.
  • Data-Driven Training: AI can analyse user data to create highly personalised and effective workout plans, maximising individual results.
  • Empowered Creators: AI will streamline content creation, allowing trainers to focus on their expertise and reach wider audiences.

Since Sora is still not released, I recommend you start playing around with a similar tool called Pika - code to embed video post it in article.

Looking Ahead

The use of AI in the fitness industry is still in its early stages, and the possibilities are vast. It's clear that AI won't replace human trainers, but rather become a valuable tool for enhancing their expertise and expanding their reach. As AI technology continues to evolve, the future of fitness content creation promises to be a blend of human ingenuity and AI innovation.
