The fitness and health market has been booming for years, but how do you utilise this growth for your own club? The key lies in gaining new target groups that have yet to discover club training, and of course in keeping your existing customers happy. Rehab Fit is EGYM’s sixth and latest training program for their fully electronic workout equipment, allowing you to move into the fast-growing preventative market.
The new training program is aimed at complete newcomers, or those whose current training goals are too intensive. Rehab Fit also works well for club customers who are recovering from an injury or have health issues that mean they are not yet fit enough for ‘normal’ circuit training, as well as older customers who need a more gentle training regime.
EGYM specialises in quickly realising new, software-based products such as Rehab Fit that can be optimally integrated into existing club programs. All EGYM machines currently in use in clubs will soon automatically receive the Rehab Fit update overnight. This means that you can constantly offer your customers new incentives for training on EGYM machines without any additional effort or extra costs. These updates specifically target new groups of users, because the EGYM training system can offer solutions for every customer’s wishes. Members who train with EGYM reach their goals faster and more reliably. This lowers customer turnover rates and contributes to the success of trainers and providers alike!
The Rehab Fit training program now allows you to move members from your rehab courses into the training zone, by introducing them to the circuit. The program is safe and prevents overexertion. Plus, the EGYM Trainer App guarantees optimal documentation and care, synergising perfectly with the new EGYM Branded Member App.
The Four Phases of the Rehab Fit Training Program
Phase 1: Mobilisation (isokinetic)
The initial phase focuses on mobilisation. The smooth training using the particularly gentle isokinetic training method aims to improve mobility. This phase is the first step towards freedom from pain.
Phase 2: Activation (isokinetic)
The second phase also makes use of isokinetic training, i.e. weight is regulated in every angle of movement. The goal is to increase speed and the number or repetitions while keeping exertion low. This creates the optimal foundation for the subsequent Strength Initiation training.
Phase 3: Strength Initiation (negative)
Initiating/strengthening the muscles
Here, the goal is to build up and strengthen muscles via negative training, which involves a slight increase in weight during the eccentric or negative phase. The muscles are stimulated more in this phase, leading to growth.
Phase 4: Full Function (regular)
The final phase introduces regular training. The focus is on increasing the training weight and moving towards strength endurance training. This phase provides optimal preparation for other training programs, for example the General Fitness training program.
The four phases, each consisting of six training sessions, are designed to be completed over approximately three months.
The EGYM Rehab Fit program is particularly suited to those looking for a gentle reintroduction to training after injury. The isokinetic training method protects the joints and thus minimises the risk of injury caused by overexertion.
