Wattbike has announced a new partnership with indoor cycling innovator Intelligent Cycling that will see the creation of a ‘truly smart, connected’ indoor cycling experience.

Designed to create motivational journeys unique to each member, the partnership will see Intelligent Cycling software integrated into Wattbike’s AtomX bikes to create personalised resistance reactions to match the needs of the rider, allowing everyone in the class to follow the same workout but at an intensity suited to their fitness levels.

"This is the first truly smart group cycling solution"

“Indoor cycling has evolved dramatically over recent years, just as technology, connectivity and equipment have enhanced the indoor cycling experience,” says Wattbike CEO, Richard Baker.

“Now, for the first time, software that displays an immersive user experience connects directly with the bike of the rider, altering to the exact ability of that user, changing resistance to suit the portrayed environment and intensity of the ride.

“This is the first truly smart group cycling solution. Welcome to the future of indoor cycling,”

Pulse Fitness has created TRAKK, an app it claims will transform the way operators and members track their journeys and keep members engaged.

TRAKK is billed as ‘the ultimate personal training tool’. It will enable users to plan and track fitness goals, create their own workout plans and access a library of ready-made workouts tailored to their goals.

For operators, it will allow trainers to set personalised goals and track members’ performance. It will also provide an additional revenue stream, allowing operators to introduce paid subscription services that will enable members to access nutrition packages and retail discounts.

"Gym-goers are no longer content with simple information like their weight, reps and calories"

“Technology is completely transforming the fitness industry and over the last few years there’s been a huge cultural shift in consumer awareness,” says Ben Steadman, business development director at Pulse Fitness.

“Gym-goers are no longer content with simple information like their weight, reps and calories. Our new app will track their progress, guide them through new exercises and give them content similar to having their own PT.”

“TRAKK will also allow operators to create personalised programmes for their members.”

Body Bike, a Danish indoor cycling specialist, has announced a new partnership with Wexer that will see the companies combine their technologies to create the Body Bike Smart + Switch, a new indoor cycle that will ‘harness the power of virtual group cycling’.

The bike is described by Body Bike as having a simple, functional and reliable design. It features a 21” touchscreen, powered by Wexer, offering a curated library of virtual classes.

The screen also features a 180-degree rotation, which enables users to seamlessly switch from training on the bike to training on the floor with a virtual instructor.

"We’re bringing together the best products on the market – the best bike, the best virtual system and the best cycling classes – to deliver an indoor cycling experience like no other"

“It’s a ground-breaking combination that marks a new standard in on-demand training, delivering the full buzz and engagement of group exercise to those working out independently, either in the gym or at home,” says Body Bike CEO Uffe A Olesen.

Kim Hessellund, CEO of The HDD Group, parent company of Body Bike, says: “We’re bringing together the best products on the market – the best bike, virtual system and cycling classes – to deliver an indoor cycling experience like no other.

BodyScript is an essential tool for fitness progress, claims Tony Garcia

MYE Fitness Technologies, a US-based tech company specialising in fitness equipment, is set to launch a new body scanner.

Called BodyScript Ascend, the scanner is set to debut at IHRSA later this month (March), and uses near-infrared technology to accurately track body composition.

Users stand on the BodyScript platform while a wand is applied to the bicep, and within 10 seconds they receive a report accurately detailing their body weight percentage, muscle mass, lean body mass, body mass index (BMI), metabolic rate (BMR) and total water.

Unlike bioelectrical impedance devices, BodyScript is designed to offer accurate results without users needing to remove their shoes.

"BodyScript provides an essential educational tool for engagement and a clear path for health and fitness progress"

“The BodyScript Ascend body composition analyser provides a greater level of accuracy for fitness club members and trainers. In just 10 seconds, subjects receive an accurate set of measurements to establish baselines and tracking,” said MYE Fitness Technologies CEO and president Tony Garcia. “BodyScript provides an essential educational tool for engagement and a clear path for health and fitness progress,” Garcia added.

“It features patented technology that encodes the results in a QR code, displayed on the scanner’s touchscreen. Users simply scan this code in order to access their results via the free BodyScript mobile app.”
