Heat Up Your Summer Workouts with Gamification
By Mario Ruiz
Your members are looking to stay active and stay motivated—and it's your responsibility to upgrade their workouts while still keeping them fun.
By integrating fitness and technology, FitMetrix by Mindbody gamifies the workout experience, driving healthy competition and engagement among members both inside and outside of your facility.
With in-class leaderboards, customizable branded mobile app technology, and heart monitoring capabilities, there are a number of solutions to help members push themselves to reach their personal bests—and have fun doing it.
Allow members to compete against themselves and others
Designed to engage gym members in fitness classes from spin to group training, the in-studio leaderboard technology tracks real-time watts, RPM, and calories burned—and also ranks members based on their performance. By utilizing the leaderboard technology to run sprints or create completely customizable team challenges, group fitness leaders are able to help members push themselves harder while simultaneously driving engagement.
Seamlessly integrating with most heart rate monitors and indoor bikes, leaderboard technology allows members to track their results in real-time during group fitness classes. Class instructors can send branded end-of-class summary emails allowing participants to share their class results directly to their social media channels.
Extend the experience outside of the studio
Creating the ultimate experience that keeps members engaged both inside and outside of the gym, FitMetrix by Mindbody's customizable branded mobile app technology allows gym-goers to track their workouts and progress right from their smartphones.
When your members head out of town or get their move on outdoors, they can stay on track and create impactful workouts no matter their location. With mobile app technology, members can experience the same heart rate training benefits from a group fitness class on the go just as they would while in your facility.
Instructors can use the app to take gamification one step further by allowing gym members to view and collect reward points and participate in club-wide challenges straight from their phones. Instructors can even send push notifications of members’ progress keeping them engaged every step of the way.
All in all…
Gamification helps members to stay on track with their workouts. By utilizing this technology to allow members to track and trend their progress, even when they are outside of the gym, members can push themselves to reach their personal fitness goals all year long.
