Now white label ready, the digital system consists of IOS and Android apps, analytics system, CRM, online booking functions as well as 800 exercise content for the gym and at home, a workout builder, on-demand GX as well as being capable of Live Streaming of group exercise both consumed through the app. Alongside this, there is a team/staff portal which allows staff to generate or create workouts, manage a health and fitness assessment called BioScore and drop the workouts and results of the assessment into the app of the member.
Behind our digital system there is years of research in understanding what behaviours cause people to develop fitness habits. Deep rooted into the foundation of everything we do is an understanding of the self-determination theory. This theory was introduced by a behavioural psychologist with 25 years’ experience in working out what motivates people to live a healthy lifestyle. The idea is that by giving members a fitness experience where they have choice and can access knowledge, in an environment where they feel like they belong, they will stay motivated at the gym and beyond.
The digital system is a product of this research and we believe it is the first of its kind.
The app has already been recognised among ground-breaking global technology brands at the DADI and EMM Awards. To be recognised for a technology product borne of the fitness industry is an achievement in itself.
WHAT MAKES IT TRULY EXCITING FOR A GYM OPERATOR?
The app breaks down the four walls of the gym taking a gym operator to become a true fitness brand by offering digital memberships to consumers not just members. This increases the size of the market for the operator as they are free of the current location restrictions.
