Virtuagym has added to its range of training solutions with the launch of Virtuagym AI Coach.

Powered by artificial intelligence, AI Coach can create tailored workouts for users based on their specific requirements, which are shared via a chat interface.

This enables users to specify their requests, including their preferences such as fitness goals, exercise level, preferred equipment, muscle groups, age or duration of exercise.

The AI Coach then provides the user with a personal workout fitting those needs, complete with exercise instructions, sets, repetitions and 3D-animated exercise videos.

After receiving the workout, the user can either do the workout at home or in the gym, save it to their personal in-app workout library or schedule it into their activity calendar.

The tool is fully integrated with the Virtuagym Fitness mobile app and the company's wider ecosystem of solutions, which means it is connected with features such as activity and heart rate tracking using wearables, body composition monitoring, nutrition coaching and gamification with challenges.

Hugo Braam, CEO and co-founder of Virtuagym, said: "The Virtuagym AI Coach is a prime example of how technology can make fitness and health more accessible and personalised, empowering people of all fitness levels to receive tailored workout plans through artificial intelligence.

“We believe this new solution is a game-changer for individual exercise and also for our business clients who are interested in making personalised coaching more efficient, either through self-management or by empowering trainers to use AI.”
