Get one-on-one personal training with the Future Fitness app

Chances are that the internet and mobile technology have drastically altered the ways by which you work, manage your finances, and connect with people, but what about your health and fitness regimen? Although most of us use our mobile devices and rely on internet connectivity every day, our workouts haven’t changed drastically over the past couple of decades. Enter Future, a new program that delivers personalized one-on-one fitness coaching and customized workout sessions right to your iPhone for a fraction of the price of a normal personal trainer. For a limited time, you can get your first month for 50% off when you sign up today.

Fitness apps are slowly but surely revolutionizing the way we work out and manage our health, and they’ve grown considerably in popularity in the past two years owing to the COVID-19 pandemic forcing many to re-think those regular trips to the gym. And just as the internet has made it easier for us to communicate and network with co-workers and friends, so too has it made it easier for average folks to seek professional fitness coaching — without having to shell out upwards of $100 per hour to hire a personal trainer.

How Future works is pretty straightforward: You sign up and complete a brief fitness questionnaire, and then Future will pair you with your own personal coach based on your answers. Afterward, you’ll touch base with your trainer, who will develop a personal fitness regimen around your goals, schedule, and lifestyle. You’ll receive a custom workout plan and schedule delivered to your phone every week, and your coach will check in daily to keep track of your progress, help you with any questions or problems you might have, make necessary adjustments to your routine, and keep you accountable and motivated. If you have an Apple Watch, all of your metrics will be automatically tracked in the app so your coach can see your performance and follow your progress.

Future’s roster of professional coaches includes experienced personal trainers who have worked with collegiate, professional, and Olympic-level athletes, as well as busy professionals and parents. Your coach will tailor your weekly workout plans to suit you, including where you are and what, if any, exercise facilities and equipment you have access to. This applies when you’re on the road, too, so you don’t have to suspend your workout regimen when you travel if you don’t want to. If by some chance your trainer isn’t a good fit, you can switch coaches at any time.

Future aims to provide a flexible and personalized fitness experience and costs just $150 per month, which is a pretty good value considering that the average personal trainer rings in at around $100 per hour-long session. If you want to give Future a try for yourself, then there’s no better time than right now, as you can get your first month for 50% off if you sign up today.

Get a KN95 Mask from only $2.40 with our exclusive coupon code

Numerous states in the U.S. have mandated mask-wearing in public, and even in places where it's not legally required, many private businesses have instituted their own rules for facial coverings. If this has left you scrambling to find some face masks but you're still trying to sort out what type of mask to buy and where you can get them, you're in luck: N95 Mask Company is offering Digital Trends readers a 20% discount on its KN95 face masks with coupon code DTSPECIAL, meaning you can score a pack of 20 for just $2.40 apiece (or even cheaper if you buy more) -- one of the lowest prices available for certified masks from a reputable company.
Buy at N95 Mask Co
The shortage of personal protective equipment is thankfully in the rear-view mirror, but there are several kinds of face masks available right now and much of the terminology can seem a little confusing. You've likely seen many people wearing cloth face masks and disposable surgical masks, and while these can offer a decent level of protection, they do not bear any sort of official certifications for filtration efficiency. A more effective option is a mask that features an N95 or KN95 rating, meaning that it adheres to regulatory standards set by the National Institute of Occupation Safety and Health (NIOSH).

In order for a mask to qualify for the N95 certification set by NIOSH, it must be capable of filtering at least 95% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. Viruses such as the coronavirus are smaller than that but the particles that these viruses travel on -- namely aerosolized fluids created when people cough, sneeze, speak, and even breathe -- are typically larger, which is what allows these face masks to capture these virus-carrying airborne particulates. KN95 is the Chinese government's equivalent regulatory standard for airborne filtration, and masks with this certification are on the Food and Drug Administration's Appendix A list of overseas-made masks that have been tested to meet U.S. regulatory standards.
