Matrix Fitness Launches Apple GymKit at Fitness First in Australia
Below is the press release from Matrix annoucing the launch of Apple Gymkit at Fitness First Australia. In July Reece will be travelling to Queensland to review the success of the implementation and consider its application in the New Zealand market. So watch this space for details of that review and what is planned for NZ customers.
COTTAGE GROVE, Wis. (June 19, 2018) – Matrix Fitness, the world’s fastest growing commercial fitness brand, announced today the implementation of more than 1,500 pieces of Apple GymKit-enabled cardio fitness machines at 18 different Fitness First facilities across the New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, and the ACT in Australia.
With this installation, Fitness First members are now able to pair their Apple Watches to GymKit-enabled Matrix Fitness treadmills, ellipticals, Ascent Trainers®, ClimbMills® and stationary bikes to get the most personalized, accurate metrics possible with the first two-way data synchronization. Once paired through a simple tap to the console, the machine shows heart rate and calories burned directly from the Apple Watch, while the machine provides data on distance, incline and speed back to the Apple Watch.
“We are always looking at how we can best utilize innovative technologies to create an amplified exercise experience for our members.” Says Greg Oliver, CEO and Managing Director of Fitness & Lifestyle Group, parent company to health club chains Fitness First, Jetts, Zap, and Goodlife. “Introducing this new and exciting Apple GymKit technology to our clubs has been truly thrilling for us, as we’re delivering another way to keep our members motivated and on track to achieve their fitness goals.”
“Technology continues to shape our lives, including how we exercise,” said Mark Zabel, Chief Marketing Officer of Johnson Health Tech. “At Matrix, we’re leveraging that technology to help introduce leading solutions, like Apple GymKit, that give exercisers more precise and personalized data – data they can use to elevate their exercise experiences, inform their decisions, and improve their outcomes.”
The Apple GymKit is available on all Matrix Fitness 7xe and 7xi treadmills, ellipticals, ClimbMills®, Ascent Trainers® and exercise bikes. For more information about Matrix and available fitness solutions, visit matrixfitness.com.
