Smart Strength Updates

This is an overview of all product updates of the EGYM Smart Strength machines.

2021-Q2

    Why?

    With the introduction of Fitness Hub, we can enable new functionality for our Smart Strength machines that enables fast and effortless onboarding of new members.

    What?

    Customers that use the Fitness hub can onboard members in just 2 minutes, EGYM machines are set up automatically, thanks to the latest in machine vision and machine learning. Using the Fitness Hub analysis, all settings for our Smart Strength (and Smart Flex) machines are created automatically to exactly fit the person scanned. During the scan, the staff can keep a safe social distance to comply with increased safety and hygiene demands. Also, the increased speed of this process enables more options for improved processes: Either a seamless group onboarding session or using the time gained for additional personal interaction and services, such as personalized health and fitness consulting.

    Why?

    With the introduction of Fitness Hub, we can enable new functionality for our Smart Strength machines that enables more focus on members’ personal needs during onboarding, versus focussing on the standard procedures.

    What?

    For customers that have a Fitness Hub, three things happen when a new member logs in for the first time on a Smart Strength machine after the contactless onboarding with Fitness Hub:

    1. First, the machine already knows the ideal settings and moves its handles, seat, etc., into the correct position. 
    2. Second, when used for the first time, a tutorial on the machine’s screens shows what to focus on during an exercise and how to use each machine.

    3. Third, the machine guides members and teaches them how to conduct strength tests. These integrated strength tests recur periodically. That means they calculate the optimal training weight for a member at that exact moment in time. Consequently, the training weight is always optimally set to the current performance level and training goal, ensuring effective workouts at all times.

    This way, the tedious operational part of the onboarding process is fully automated and leaves staff much more time for value-adding personal interaction and service.
