Virtual Trainer

Jun. 20, 2014 Maxim

The Pitch: bills itself as an online virtual personal trainer and nutritionist that actually works.

What it really is: A not-annoying and easy way to get in better shape (and everyone knows, I need it!) According to founder Sergio TradlBodBot looks at your relevant schedule and goals, and a basic model of your body, then algorithmically puts together an optimal workout. On days I’m supposed to exercise, BodBot sends me a reminder email and a list of my workout items. BodBot handles everything – it even helps with improving your nutrition. Fact: I told BodBot I ate pizza for three straight meals, and it magically suggested I should add a few vegetables to my diet…but isn’t that what toppings are for?

Who’s it for: People who are trying to finally get serious about their health and don’t want to spend a lot of money.  BodBot is especially helpful for us fitness n00bs – using a few simple fitness tests, BodBod determined the best workout for my fitness level and body type (essentially: round) and set up workouts that actually made sense.
