Astons Health Studio Lead the Way with eGym SmartStart

eGym's SmartStart offers individualised training with intuitive and progressive personalised workouts
Astons Exclusive Health Studio in Chichester features modern connected training concepts on its Precor equipment, through eGym SmartStart.

The 260 sq ft gym has nine eGym strength machines along with integrated eGym SmartStart on its Precor cardiovascular consoles, giving the 150 members a fully interactive, connected workout.

During inductions on the connected cardio machines, members take a step-by-step physical performance test showing their results as ‘Cardio-Age’. The software uses this to automatically prescribe an individual training programme based on the selected training goal, such as general fitness, body toning, athletic, muscle building, metabolic fit, rehabilitation or weight loss.

Members are encouraged to train on the Precor equipment and use eGym SmartStart at least twice a week, and once logged in via RFID, are presented with the eGym training experience which includes interactive, visually-engaging graphics to guide them through their workout.

Gym Manager, Jo Perkins explains: “Installing eGym on our Precor equipment was important, as we want to provide members with the ability to complete effective cardio training and save time in the gym. Members are tested every 28 days to ensure they’re benefitting from the optimal cardio programme to suit their current fitness level and physical ability. eGym SmartStart enables them to experience personalised cardio training programmes, align workouts to their training goals, monitor training sessions and track results easily.

“The eGym circuit also enables us to provide personalised strength training. The built-in software programme changes every six sessions to a new training method, encouraging members to repeat the strength test and obtain regular maximum strength measurements, which automatically determines the optimal training weight they use and progresses them towards their goal.

“Installing eGym SmartStart on our Precor equipment is delivering members with quick results, automated progression, as well as tracking and sharing results. It allows members to train independently and instantly see progression, while also providing information on muscle imbalances and a biological age based on their strength. The combination of eGym and Precor working together is the future of fitness and is perfect for our boutique health studio.”
