The startup company Aaptiv has released its AI personal trainer. The training service is called Aaptiv Coach and has been in development for three years. Aaptiv coach can create custom workouts to help users reach their fitness goals. Users of Aaptiv Coach can use the AI-generated workouts or just use the AI to measure their progress. The company was able to derive the AI workouts from workouts already streamed on its app. Through Aaptiv's history, the company has streamed millions of workouts -- with each one used to train its artificial intelligence.
This release is a departure from the company's previous model of streaming workouts with its own personal trainers. Aaptiv has signified that it wanted to add AI to the platform but not eliminate its human trainers.
