Technology in the Gym
Technology has worked its way into every facet of our lives. The gym is no different. We decided to take an in-depth look at how technology effects people’s workouts. We set out to see how the younger generation of Americans use technology at the gym, and whether it is an asset to the workout, or a complete distraction. As a team of 4 researchers, we spent hours at the gym attempting to gather information on the effects of technology and the quality of workout. We ran into various limitations from not becoming a distraction to gym patrons to being able to distinguish what a device is being used for. Overall, we found technology has found a place at the gym.
