‘Running Music’ is part of Technogym’s Mywellness cloud based platform providing users with a fully personalized training experience both inside and outside the gym. Mywellness is accessed via mobile app, and through UNITY the first android-based console display on Technogym cardio training equipment. By logging into UNITY the user can access his/her personal account and personal training programs, favorite entertainment options - and now music. To learn more about how Running Music works, please view this video.
Through the ‘Running Music’ function users can listen to their personal music and choose their favorite genre; the treadmill will then automatically select and stream the most suitable music according to the number of steps per minute taken, creating a personalized soundtrack.
In addition to the “Running Music” preview, Technogym will showcase all Mywellness digital platform features, app and integrations including “MyRunning Logbook” - one of the exclusive UNITY applications that allows users to replicate on the treadmill their favorite outdoor run and challenge their past performance by monitoring their position on the map and comparing their pace with the outdoor performance tracked by the compatible mobile apps or tracking devices.
“Technogym’s UNITY console offers a revolutionary and engaging training experience,” said Nerio Alessandri, President and Founder of Technogym. “Providing users with a personalized training program, it is open to third party apps and devices and now interacts with a user’s personal music.”
Technogym’s Mywellness cloud is a revolutionary new open platform that allows wellness enthusiasts to measure and aggregate all of the data surrounding their physical activities, both inside the gym and out, along with their daily movements and their evolving body measurements. With the Mywellness cloud, consumers can manage their workouts in the gym (in concert with Technogym equipment & UNITY™ consoles), outdoors on their mobile devices, at home via personal computers or Technogym home equipment, on holiday or wherever they train, for a truly personalized and seamless wellness experience.
All of this is part of Technogym’s “Wellness on the Go” philosophy, which is at the heart of everything that Technogym strives to achieve from a technological, lifestyle and holistic standpoint. Made possible by the UNITY console - the Android-based display for cardio equipment that allows users to customize the information and entertainment options on Technogym cardio equipment, much like you customize the screen on your mobile devices – in combination with Technogym’s Mywellness app - which stores physical activity in the Mywellness cloud on a variety of devices - Technogym provides a fully integrated personal health and fitness system for everyday use on the Mywellness cloud.
All of these components are integral parts of the Technogym Ecosystem, the first integrated system that incorporates interconnected equipment, services, content and programs. Through the mobility and interconnectedness inherent in all these products, fitness facilities can now offer their members “Wellness on the Go” packages and connect with them on Technogym equipment anywhere in the world, whether inside or outside of the gym.
The data gathered through Mywellness Lifestyle presents various CRM opportunities for operators as they can analyze in real time their members’ health habits and develop personalized programs tailor-made to their needs.
