We live in a world where people want what they want, when they want it, how they want it.
This translates into some unique implications for fitness facilities when trying to meet their members’ demands.
We all want to work out when it’s convenient for us. With endless online streaming and live video options, one can literally engage in a guided workout anytime, anywhere in the world, which today creates some significant hurdles for gyms to try and compete with.
Exercise variety is also an expectation. From yoga to a HIIT circuit to a 30-minute core workout, many gravitate from one modality to the next on a daily basis. Facilities need to be flexible and robust in their programming offering to keep up with these ever-changing mandates.
Tracking everything from our steps, to calories, to performance, to reps, to speed and distance has become the norm. We covet technology and we measure everything.
To top it all off, we expect all of these things be available to us within a dynamic, social, shared environment or we are not interested in coming. We are motivated by others, and seek interaction, connection and community as part of our exercise experience.
With the seemingly insurmountable resource, operational, logistical and digital requirements all of these things require, how does a fitness facility even begin to solve for these factors?
Aktiv Solutions has made this our mission.
With our design-first approach, a focus on intelligent storage and safe suspension systems, and unique training tools, each aspect has been intentionally developed to address these precise considerations.
But fitness is evolving, and change is constant. In-facility experience is critical, but results driven training is the real non-negotiable forward. Hence, Aktiv will now bring a completely innovative digital platform to market to provide even more forward-thinking solutions that solve for ever-changing and evolving challenges within different environments.
