NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The days of logging 10,000 steps a day on a fitness monitor being "enough" are past us. Fitness trackers continue to get more sophisticated, monitoring everything from our resting heart rate to our caloric intake and even our sleep patterns. With this influx of accurate and actionable data, it's no wonder that 2018 is shaping up to be the year of mass personalization of fitness.
"Developments in FitnessTech over the past year are giving us more options than ever to personalize your fitness efforts to reach your goals," said Julie Sylvester, producer, FitnessTech Summit. "At this year's summit, we'll look at how these high-tech fitness solutions are becoming more accessible to the average consumer, from bringing the gym to their living room through new video platforms, to creating diet and exercise plans based on your DNA.
