Live virtual classes
We provide a range of “live” stream classes each day that customers can book on to very easily through the app. Then, using their device to watch and join in, they can talk to anyone else on the class and the instructor if they wish (kind of like a Zoom/Teams meeting) and interact. Once the class starts members can opt to remain private with only the instructor or experience the class with the other participants. They can then perform the class wherever they are and get all the same benefits as before and completely safe. Check out our current Virtual TT attached.
These face to face classes are performed outside using a variety of our outdoor spaces. Members can book using the ISCUBA app or pay at reception (pre-booking is advised due to limited spaces). These instructor led classes will register their visit at reception, meet the instructor next to the running track and led through a fun and challenging routine to meet the expectations of the class type. These include Body Blast, Bootcamp, Circuits, Kettle Fit, Lean Lifting, and Running Clubs for all abilities.
This is a bank of pre-recorded classes that customers can access and perform whenever suits them. The app comes with over 100 different classes on it. We have already added our own content. I have uploaded all the circuits classes I did during lock down (for you to do over and over and over again!) and this content will be added to weekly with Mike F already getting a Body Blast class on there. These classes range from high intensity to Pilates/Yoga. Eventually we will get all our classes on there so members can access all their favourite classes whenever they like as often as they like.
All members will be granted access to Edge Hills Sports content on Technogym’s MyWellness App. Once a member download the app and start enjoying all the benefits within 24hrs. Some of these include.
Workout of the Day
We will have at least three new workout ideas every day for members to enjoy. Simply click on the workout in the app, read the description and if you fancy it, simply click on start to enjoy this video led workout. These challenging and innovative workouts provide all reps, sets, weights and rest with any instructor comments added to it. Each exercise comes with a video demonstration for clarity. These might be home workouts or gym based, body weight or equipment based, low intensity to high intensity. Something for everyone and keeps your workouts fresh.
We have a bank of over 450 exercise programmes for members to enjoy and benefit from. Members simply follow the questions about experience levels, how often they want to exercise, how long they want each exercise for and what their goals are. The app will then present a list of appropriate work outs for the member to self-prescribe and follow in their as they wish.
Virtual & On Demand Classes
As described above.
Linking your app to our Tanita scales members can access a full and accurate assessment of segmented body composition.
