From artificial intelligence to cryotherapy, fitness is no longer limited to dumbbells.

Bodies are powerful instruments in themselves, but like any other device, they can benefit from enhancements. “There are several of them [of technology] out there that is really effective in helping people optimize themselves, whether it’s performance, recovery, longevity or pain management, ”says Ryan Brassell, co-owner of Golden Biohack. To make sure you hit your full fitness bandwidth, we’ve connected to three local gyms that have installed the latest advancements in body building.

If you want to train: Your skeletal system
Technology: Osteogenic loading machines
How it works: A man’s average bone density peaks around the age of 30, and as your skeleton begins to weaken so do your muscles (think of your skeletal system as the basis of your house). Research has shown that brief bursts of high-impact activity stimulate bone growth, and the machines at OsteoStrong’s outposts in Lakewood, Denver Tech Center, and Lowry safely replicate that pressure by exerting the ideal force against you. as you perform whole body movements. OsteoStrong says that a 15-minute visit per week can increase strength, balance, and agility; increase bone density; and relieve joint pain.

If you want to train: Every cell and synapse in your body
Technology: Everything from electromagnetic healing beds to artificial intelligence bikes
How it works: The Brassell Wellness Center is essentially the Apple Store for Fitness. If your goal is to lose a few pounds, for example, your personalized program might involve nutritional coaching, lying in a therapeutic red light bed to fuel your body’s energy-producing mitochondria, riding a spin bike that lasts for more time. The algorithm finds the perfect resistance and speed. to burn fat and hit the cryotherapy chamber later to help your muscles and joints recover.

If you want to train: Your muscles, harder and in less time
Technology: Exerbotic machines
How it works: No more slacking off with lighter weights or injuring yourself after overloading the bar: the AI-powered Exerbotics machines use sensors to gauge how much you should push or pull. The computer then learns which weight goals to challenge you with and adjusts in real time as you progress through each set and subsequent sessions. All of this increased efficiency – on average, members complete two-minute sets of four to six different movements – means workouts at Exercise Coach, which opened in Broomfield last June, only take 20 minutes. (owners Jeff and Jenn Jorgensen recommend two sessions per week).
Details: Your first two sessions are free and subscriptions start at $ 25 per session;
