ABSTRACT
Recent technological advances have created enormous opportunities for developing applications that support training from home--particularly for older adults, who often are socially more isolated, are physically less active, and have fewer chances to train in a gym. In this article, the authors review current fitness applications and their features alongside the design challenges and opportunities of fitness applications for trainees at home.
