Cloud technology in cardiovascular equipment such as treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, cross trainers etc. is a major focus from the top fitness equipment manufactures around the world. Both Technogym and Precor launched their platforms earlier this year. Now we can cover the cloud offering from Life Fitness.
Designed to “Elevate the Workout Experience”, LFconnect is the new complementary cloud based solution from Life Fitness.
Allowing functionality like never before to both facility owners and exercisers, it seems that keeping our members entertained whilst exercising is not only fun and motivational, it’s possibly the best retention system a gym or studio can employ. Let’s take a peek!
Facility Owners Benefits
Once an internet connection has been established, and compatible with the new Elevation Series, benefits of the Life Fitness LFconnect include on-screen customizable branding and messaging, members incentive and reward programs, facility news such as events, timetables, new exercise programs and referral offers, Internet bookmarking and presetting entertainment channels and more.
Operationally, equipment usage, peak exercise times and popular machines can all be monitored and reports produced – great for equipment layout management. Software updates can be applied automatically or at a time to suit, to specific machines or all of them.
What’s In for the Exercisers
It’s a whole new world of exercising. A plethora of stats available (up to 17), including the usual calories, pace, time remaining and heart rate. Preset workouts, your custom workouts, Internet surfing and bookmarking, workout calendar, library and challenges, all your social networking channels to share your efforts and let everyone know you’re at the gym (again!) and more, more, more.
Not just another workout – this is the next level. Lifescape’s interactive adventures enables exercisers to run, hike or bike in dream destinations all over the world. Bike in France’s Col de la Colombiere, or run in California’s Trinity Mountains, the integrated machine controls increase the resistance or incline and video speed to replicate an authentic outdoor experience.
