Staying in tip-top shape has never been as easy in history as it is now. A visit to any regular gym contains equipment that could whip any determined person into shape. What’s more, for those who don’t want to visit the gym, there are apps that ensure one can still get in the exercises needed for a fit and healthy body. But in spite of how technology has simplified the art of fitness maintenance, today’s humans are still consistently getting weaker than previous generations.
Statistics show that more than 80% of adults do not meet the requirements for aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities, and more than 80% of teenagers do not get enough aerobic physical activity to fulfill the standards for youth.
Ironically, technology has been singled out as the main cause of this growing sedentary lifestyle. It is now customary for people to be confined to their workstations, automobiles, and screens for long periods of time. Lack of motivation is yet another culprit responsible for the decline in human’s fitness, with no solutions given to tackle the issue. However, a company called Digifit has decided to proffer a long-lasting solution to this problem by using technology to motivate people to exercise.
Digifit is a health and wellness project that wants to change the outlook that people have about daily exercises. They plan on doing this by offering a state-of-the-art application that would keep track of fitness competitions, meal plans, and daily exercises. Users only need to log in their fitness goals along with physical measurements and the app would come up with a customized routine curated for them. But unlike other similar apps in the fitness industry, the Digifit platform would use cryptocurrency and blockchain to motivate its users to keep to their fitness schedule. So the platform automatically sets goals for users and when these goals are completed, users get rewarded with Digifit’s native token, $DGI. With this method, Digifit hopes that the reward will be enough for users to take their fitness seriously.
Digifit’s native utility token will not only be given to users of the platform as a reward, it will also play a significant role on the platform’s integrated economy, which includes an ad system, a marketplace, charity funding, sport-based payments, and a host of other unique features. In addition, $DGI will enable considerably cheaper access to virtual, real-life, and on-demand exercise services since fitness memberships are out of reach for a large portion of the population.
Further, in keeping in line with the spirit of blockchain, Digifit will eliminate the need for middlemen, and instead give users unbridled access to their data, trainers, and lessons. Thanks to the smart contracts, the fitness sector will easily operate in a direct client-to-coach way.
