A Vision for Smarter Dashboard UI

I'm attending fitness classes at Chelsea Piers Sports center since last year and joined a new class called Breakaway 101 which was a thought breaking workout experience for me because this is what I have wanted to design during my master's studies.

The dynamic color changing UI along with each bike's signal light and room LED lights by tracking RPM data depending on the users' different workout levels, speeds and consistency while cycling fascinated me a lot while experiencing the cycling workout.

I eager to design a real-time dashboard UI that reacts to user's activity in real time while it's interface is visually enhancing the communication and awarness between users and their activities at the moments. I have always wanted to design the interaction between the users and their data which gives simple, powerful real-time workout motivation through visual communication.
