Introducing the Blockchain exercise for the Fitness industry
Looking at the blog title, you must be wondering that the title is misleading or that what has Blockchain got to do with the Fitness industry? Fair enough - how can a technology that was built for facilitating cryptocurrency trading be of any use to the health and fitness sector? But Blockchain has penetrated possibly every sector existing in the world today, whether it is a technologically premature field like Agriculture or a technically sound sector like Finance.
With people becoming more health-conscious and promoting a healthy way of living, the fitness industry is seeing a significant boom. People are showing more interest in consuming organic food, gymnasiums and health clubs are witnessing a never seen rush, people are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of the products they consume and the importance of being fit.
Technology has been the pioneer in developing devices that have brought remarkable changes in the healthcare sector. We saw in one of our blogs how AI and Blockchain have successfully created new-age devices to diagnose a disease as big as Cancer. But technology has also designed a number of fitness devices that can be used at home by a common man like blood pressure machine, blood sugar check machine etc. This has helped mankind to keep a tab on general health statistics on a day-to-day basis on his fingertips. Learn about some of the health monitoring devices here. Not only devices but there are multiple fitness apps that enable people to count their calories, track their exercise routines etc.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and indefinite lockdowns across the countries be it United States of America, or countries in Europe like France, Germany, Switzerland, people have not been able to venture out of their homes. Hence, their fitness schedules and health routines of visiting the gyms have gone for a toss. Since almost everything has become virtual these days, people have now shifted to virtual exercising sessions.
Blockchain technology can be implemented along with the already underlying technology that manages these fitness services online. Blockchain can bring more security and reliability to the existing system by the virtue of its various features as described below.
Improved Data Privacy & Security
With Blockchain in tow, it is impossible that the personal data of consumers is tampered with. If data is stored on centralized systems, it is vulnerable to cyber attacks and thefts. Users have to be extremely cautious about the genuineness and the authenticity of the fitness app they use. Blockchain’s encryption algorithms and its immutable structure ensures complete data privacy and security. Owing to its decentralized model, users will have full access to their health information without having to worry about manipulation of data.
Elimination of middlemen and third parties
Thanks to Blockchain technology, users will have direct access to their trainers online without having to deal with middlemen or avail club memberships in order to access a trainer. Blockchain can design smart contracts for fitness tips and lessons of a particular trainer to a particular consumer.
Blockchain can enable cryptocurrency payment methods like Bitcoin or Ether. The world is rising to digital payments and digital currency and it will not be a surprise if the fitness industry starts accepting crypto payments online.

Alerts & Notifications for events
Blockchain technology can be used to generate alerts and notifications to an area specific audience to advertise about the fitness service. Marketing the product and online service in such a way helps reach a wider and potential target. The fitness sector can benefit largely using this application.
Class & Trainings Management
Managing hundreds of consumers online can be a tedious task. Individual classes, group sessions, maintaining diet charts, scheduling various exercises; there are plenty of tasks to take care of. Blockchain is the one-stop solution for all these tasks. Scheduling automated smart contracts for weekly sessions, managing diet schedules, managing instructor changes etc can be well taken care of by a Blockchain platform. Also, automation reduces a lot of manual tasks and there are lesser chances of errors or mistakes.
Blockchain helps in generating analytical and inquisitive reports about the fitness center that can be used to take important decisions. Information regarding feedback of consumers, their requirements, services generating the most revenue, user payment data etc are some of the various reports that Blockchain can help fetch from the system.
Blockchain is a boon for any e-Commerce platform, we saw that in our blog on Blockchain for e-Commerce. The fitness club can have its own marketplace for consumers where they can buy fitness products, avail services like diet charts, exercise regimes etc. Blockchain can integrate multiple payment methods like Stripe, PayPal etc on this platform for user to pay in an easy way.
