In a continued bid to provide operators with the technology needed to drive fast, targeted member results, eGym’s newest innovation – eGym Premium – builds on the company’s expertise in providing fully intuitive, automated training programmes. This advanced software solution allows eGym’s operator partners to deliver an unrivalled level of automated, individualisation to each and every prescribed training programme.
Advanced individualised programming
Building on the eGym Classic software, which delivers a high level of support to members at the start of their gym journey, eGym Premium offers individualised training programmes based on proven sports science research – programmes created using an intricate matrix of variables, such as workout duration and speed, number of repetitions and intensity.
By applying these factors, eGym Premium quickly and efficiently directs members towards achieving their training goal, regardless of which of the six goals they select: General Fitness, Body Toning, Weight Loss, Athletic, Muscle Building or Health – which includes Rehab Fit and Metabolic Fit.
In addition to eGym Classic’s Regular and Negative training methods, eGym Premium offers even more advanced features and provides three further training options: Adaptive, Isokinetic and Explonic. eGym Premium excels in its ability to create highly bespoke programmes for every member by automatically selecting the best combination of methods for delivering their required training goal. Once the training programme is set, the principle of periodisation is then introduced.
Guaranteed member progression
Periodisation refers to the systematic planning of training programmes. Used by elite athletes for more than 50 years, this principle maximises muscle stimulation and guards against training plateaus. It involves progressive cycling of various aspects of a training programme over a specific time period. Research has shown that training programmes that incorporate periodisation can be twice as effective as those that don’t.
A complete eGym training plan lasts approximately 12 weeks. During this time, eGym Premium leads users through four training phases, while applying periodisation of advanced training methods for optimal results. Members are advised to train at least twice a week. On completing every sixth session, eGym Premium automatically changes to an alternative training method and the member performs a strength test to determine the new level of training resistance required. These adjustments provide a new training stimulus for muscles and ensure that users constantly improve their performance. Without this level of adaptation, muscles are not challenged – even if a person trains regularly. And when a training stimulus is absent, gym-goers can quickly plateau.
Benefits for members, PTs and operators
eGym Premium offers gym operators the most advanced, automated and effective training system on the market. Using Premium software, gym owners can help existing members achieve results more quickly and they can also use the advanced training system to attract new target groups that have a wide range of abilities. Premium also offers PTs the support they need to prescribe highly advanced training programmes to members who have little or no training experience. PTs can then use data stored in the member’s personal cloud account to review their progress at regular intervals.
eGym Premium is the future of advanced gym training. Not only is it accessible to everyone, it enables highly complex, professional training methods to be administered to a diverse range of members on the gym floor, without placing additional time and administration demands on gym staff. Members also see a rapid return on their investment because they achieve their goals in a way they never have, which, in turn, results in more engagement and less attrition for clubs.
eGym Premium propels member satisfaction
In addition to reaching goals as efficiently as possible, eGym Premium ensures that members do not grow bored with their training. Software is regularly updated, training progression is constantly delivered via the programmes and members benefit from a range of training methods on the same equipment. This keeps gym-goers motivated to return week after week, and to continue paying their membership subscriptions.
