We asked OpenAI's ChatGPT to 'Explain the Benefits of a Home Gym', the results were surprising
The benefits of weightlifting from your own home gym are an obvious No Brainer, so we asked OpenAI's ChatGPT for the answer.
Artificial Intelligence is still getting a lot of attention as companies like OpenAI release tools that are becoming more widely tested and even used commercially. In OpenAI's case, the AI will create for you either Copy or Digital Artwork, and we thought it was time to put those 1s and 0s under some tension.
First, we requested digital images using their program DALL-E. In brief, you enter a detailed description of what you want visualized and some options are generated, you can even tweak those more. Here is the term we used: "Digital Art of Artificial Intelligence Weightlifting at Home"
...and the results ranged from interesting, to humorous, to awkward:
"A home gym can provide numerous benefits for individuals who are looking to improve their fitness level and overall health. Here are some of the key benefits of having a home gym:
Convenience: With a home gym, you can work out whenever you want, without having to worry about travel time, gym hours, or waiting for equipment. This can save you a lot of time and make it easier to stick to your fitness routine.
Cost savings: Over time, a home gym can save you money on gym memberships, travel expenses, and other related costs. While the initial investment in equipment may be expensive, it can pay off in the long run.
Privacy: Some people feel uncomfortable working out in a crowded gym. With a home gym, you can exercise in private, without worrying about other people watching you.
Customization: When you have a home gym, you can choose the equipment and workout routines that work best for you. This allows you to tailor your workouts to your specific needs and goals.
Health benefits: Regular exercise is essential for maintaining good health. With a home gym, you can exercise regularly, which can help reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
Overall, a home gym can provide a convenient and cost-effective way to improve your fitness level and overall health. It can also provide privacy and customization, allowing you to tailor your workouts to your specific needs and goals." -CHATGPT
While this response is basic, it is not overly simplistic and accurately presents the important considerations of a home gym; impressive for an artificial intelligence to write, and in about 10 seconds.
What does that mean for the fitness industry? We don't see this as a resource we'll tap outside of this article, and it is safe to assume nor will other companies in the industry, at least regarding content.
What does this mean for consumers? Consumers should expect more in the future. SMART strength equipment is already available but still a premium price home use, and adding AI to recommend or even lead workouts will further increases costs. Consider the cost-savings a company can find via CGI instructors on the front end and AI in the background creating tailored programming for You, personalized and on-demand, with a meal-plan ready to go based on your macros--it's inevitable.
In fairness, we must consider what this might look like at Ironmaster, so, here is a mockup of the IM2000 AI version.
All kidding aside, Ironmaster will continue to enjoy the 'analog' approach of strength training. Be sure to share your curated digital creations with us if you delve into the AI yourself!
