Technology is fundamental in various aspects of life like in training. Personal trainers use technology these days in their businesses. Apart from people using the computer to play computer games, the equipment can also be used in physical education like the use of pedometers to measure the number of steps you make during an exercise. Machines can also be used to change someone’s exercise behavior.
Other training tools that use computer include an accelerometer that records the amount of energy that the body utilized during an exercise, heart rate monitors which is used to check and monitor the intensity of the activity and combined heart rate and accelerometer which simultaneously measure the amount of energy spent during training.
