The NBT: High-tech Workout Gear


Maggie: This week, we are taking sweat clothes to a whole new level. It is gym apparel that can actually help improve your workout. There are four sensors built into the front, back and sides of these gym clothes made by Electric Foxy. They detect and register your movement and let you know if you are doing an exercise correctly – from helping you hit the right yoga pose to giving you tips on your golf swing.

These clothes are able to interact with various social media sites, making it possible to automatically track your progress and workout statistics. Using a mobile app, that data can then be used to help customize your exercise program and set goals for yourself, and even brag about your workout to your friends.
