MYZONE has launched an interactive video subscription service that’s been billed the ‘Netflix of physical activity.’

The subscription service features a library of 500 interactive fitness classes and provides real-time physiological feedback during the workout through the MYZONE app.

Delivered to a wide variety of smart devices, each virtual class suggests effort and intensity levels during specific exercises and gives the user full accountability. The service also has an ‘on demand’ model that enables the user to engage with content whenever they choose.

MYZONE says the development reflects its commitment to catering to the needs of customers by bringing wearable technology alongside popular lifestyle behaviours, social media and technology trends.

MYZONE creator and CEO Dave Wright says: “Virtual training has been in the industry for years, but providing real time feedback takes member engagement to a new level.

“We’re excited to maximise the screen and the capital expense for operators, so they can kill two birds with one stone utilising our integrated virtual feedback.”

Hutchison Technologies has launched two new display solutions for the health and fitness sector.

Both systems are designed to create immersive workout environments and give instructors artistic control of the fitness experience.

Control-AV is an intuitive quick access interface that can be run on a tablet. It’s adaptable to customer needs and allows instructors to manage studio lighting, sound and visual equipment in real time.

Auto-AV enables trainers to pre-programme studio equipment, including screens, projectors and lighting, which can then be activated throughout the class without the instructor being present.

Hutchison claims its new systems enable operational efficiency and enhance day-to-day productivity.

Mark Hutchison, technical director at Hutchison Technologies, says: “Merging audio, lighting and visual enhancements into one intelligent solution has transformed them into a motivational tool and immersive experience for fitness classes.”
