Interactive Fitness Technology Buying Guide by Industry

(updated July 1, 2018)  We see two product categories that have proven success in any facility depending on what Goals the location wants to accomplish and how it fits into the overall Vision.

1) Program oriented Interactive Fitness Technology. we have seen that when we combine certain products and programs, we put them in the right area of the club or facility, and we have the right ‘champion’ at the location – we will have success. The most success has come from adding a few products to an existing area of a club so the products can integrate with what you are already doing in the clubs.

These products include the ‘basic’ technology products like T-Wall, CardioWall
Also, older technology products that have not been upgraded in many years can fall into this category of needing great staff to keep the program moving forward, fun and sustainable. 3-Kick, Heavy Ball, Sportwall,

2) The new category actually goes back to the roots of “Exer-games”, Fitness Entertainment, Fitness Gaming – simply they are products that offer Entertainment and often have the characteristics of Video Game Play. These are products based on game software that you physically move in order to play the game – you become the game controller. They allow for advanced graphics, an immersive experience, continual variety with new games and levels, and attract a lot of attention. These new Fitness Games track user data, have leaderboards, allow for challenges, and make the user go through game levels in order to advance.

These products include: iWALL, TapWall, Reaction Pro Trainer, Aviron Rowing, Valo-Motion, Icaros, Pro-X Trainer.

With all the advancements in Technology, we have seen improvements in the quality of the products, the simplicity of use and the many applications on how a facility can use those products. Here is our current list of the best solutions by some top industries: Health Clubs, After-school programs, Kids Clubs, Hospitality, Rehabilitation, Entertainment, Sports performance, and Schools. The ranking is not necessarily in ranking order. Several factors will play into the best products to meet your goals - Contact one of our experienced professionals for a personal evaluation.
