The future of exercise and health - A GPS Moment
The world is making significant strides in recognizing the value of exercise. We are not merely viewing it as a tool for enhancing physical appearance but as a fundamental pillar for our overall health and longevity.
While this awareness is spreading globally, most people are still using archaic and outdated tools to map these insights into effective action.
New era of health and wellbeing — A GPS Moment
Imagine setting out on a cross-country road trip without GPS. That’s how we’ve approached health and fitness: a game of guesswork, where success is as much about luck as it is about effort.
Following this metaphor. Most people are trying to navigate to their destination either by intuition, with the help of crapy maps they bought online or found on YouTube/ TikTok or with a very expensive tour guide (i.e. Personal trainer) in the passenger seat.
Today, however, we stand on the cusp of a new era. Just as GPS technology revolutionized travel, emerging AI solutions like Tidalflow aim to transform our approach to health and fitness. All that’s left for you is to turn the wheel.
Can you even imagine having to go back to reading physical maps when going on a drive?
A Historical Jog Down Memory Lane
Our fitness journey has been long and, at times, questionable. Consider the 1960s when jogging became a pastime rather than a primal survival instinct. Or the 1980s, when aerobics brought a vibrant dance pulse to the fitness world and the 2010s with their fitness trackers and 10,000-step goals. Each decade brought its own flavor and method of mapping the route to health. Now, as we enter the “golden age of health and wellbeing,” we’re not just trying to look good; we’re aiming to live better, longer lives. Exercise has emerged as a non-negotiable pillar of health — our natural defense against the ‘four horsemen’ of death. As Dr.Peter Attia has put it:
“ I now consider exercise to be the most potent longevity drug in our arsenal, in terms of lifespan and health span. The data are unambiguous; exercise not only delays actual death, but also prevents both cognitive and physical decline better than any other intervention. We also tend to feel better when we exercise, so it probably has some harder to measure effect on our emotional health as well.-excerpt from “Outlive” by Dr. Peter Attia.
Let me highlight that again because its impact is so profound.
“Exercise is the most potent longevity drug in our arsenal”
We’ve come to understand that our bodies aren’t just vehicles to be polished — they’re temples to be cherished, engines to be fine-tuned.
Why are workout routines still so difficult to maintain?
Short answer, the existing tools suck.
Just as Leo Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina principle” suggests, success in life requires avoiding many pitfalls vs doing “the one thing” right. The same can be said for maintaining a consistent workout routine. It’s rarely about finding a one-size-fits-all solution or silver bullet; it’s about dynamically steering clear of a multitude of potential downfalls that vary from person to person. Staying with the car navigation metaphor, these challenges are our modern-day roundabouts, confusing intersections lack of electric charging stations,.. Let’s unpack these common pitfalls in a bit more detail.
These stumbling blocks are common among many who strive to make exercise a part of their daily life. Getting to an effective health journey means finding solutions that help you avoid each one of these pitfalls. Let’s look at how well the current tools shield you from them and help you to navigate around them.
The current solutions and their shortcomings
In light of the various challenges faced in maintaining a consistent workout routine, let’s explore the spectrum of current fitness solutions available. These solutions, akin to different navigational aids for a journey, vary greatly in their approach, sophistication, and effectiveness.
- Self-Starter Approach — This is akin to venturing into the wilderness without a map. It’s a trial-and-error method that can lead to frustration and often, abandonment.
2. Free Online Resources — With an abundance of fitness content online, it’s like having a map with no clear landmarks. It’s easy to get lost or follow a path that doesn’t lead to your desired destination.
3. Fitness 1.0 apps — offer an overwhelming array of choices, akin to a stack of maps with no clear markings. It leads to choice paralysis rather than empowered decision-making.
4. Digital Coaches — Apps like Co-pilot and Future.co represent a step forward, with real trainers offering guidance from the digital sidelines. It’s similar to having a map with a customizable route, yet it lacks real-time navigation and is prohibitively expensive.
5. Personal Trainers — Employing a personal trainer is like paying for a tour guide to sit in your passenger seat, but it’s a luxury not everyone can afford, and the quality of the guidance varies widely.
The Next Frontier, A health-GPS — The ideal is a solution that combines the best of all worlds — a GPS. An approach that’s not just a static map or a reactive navigation system, but a dynamic, intelligent GPS that learns and adapts to your fitness journey. A Personalized, real-time, dynamic, and affordable guide to your health and fitness.
