Personalized Fitness Apps Give More Benefits

Personalized Fitness Apps Give More Benefits

The UBC study implies that users tend to exercise more often when their fitness apps include some personal information.
 
For example, the app provides a user with a ‘real live trainer’ contact, or when setting the individualized goals.
 
The effectiveness of fitness apps had been studied during eight weeks by Mary Jung, an assistant professor in UBC Okanagan’s School of Health and Exercise Sciences.

Jung cooperated with a fitness app company to include purpose setting, personalized response, and possibilities for self-monitoring and self-evaluation—all the crucial elements of health behavior change. The investigators compared the activity levels between those who made use of the app against those who did not.
 
Jung specified that the testees used the app not only for the whole term of the study, they also exercised more. This is the bottom line of the study. Because the group that did without the app showed no prominent changes in their exercise circuit.

Jung says: “Technologies, such as apps, have the potential to assist in improving physical activity levels, but they must be based on sound health behavior change evidence for this to work.”
 
According to Statistics Canada, nearly 7 percent of Canadian children are required to follow fixed activity recommendations of 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous exercise per day. For adults, who are advised to attempt for at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous exercise weekly, that rate reaches 15 percent.
