With the Virtuagym platform, you can manage your member and workout data, track payments, digitize class bookings, automate your processes, and much more.
We have partnered with Matrix Fitness and are excited to introduce our latest integration: the Matrix strength integration.
What does the Matrix strength machine integration do?
This ongoing partnership between Virtuagym and Matrix includes an existing integration with Matrix cardio machines, which has now been extended to include the strength machine integration.
The new integration allows you to take your customers’ workout experience to the next level by connecting Matrix strength machines with our virtual training software.
So you can control the equipment, create workout programs, and track your customers’ progress in real time. A perfect example of how digital innovations can revolutionize the traditional gym experience.
It’s pretty simple
With 22 modern strength training consoles, the integration can automatically track the number of repetitions, the amount of weight, and the number of sets your customers perform on the strength machines.
The new integration offers the following benefits:
- Automatic tracking of sets, repetitions, and weights
- Automatic synchronization of workout data with the user’s Virtuagym profile
- Improved ability to create individual workout plans
- Automatic progress reports for members and trainers
- Increased motivation through the ability to track progress and achieve goals
This means that your customers can fully focus on their workouts without having to worry about manual input.
Easy tracking: How RFID integration works at Virtuagym
By using RFID technology, the integration can automatically synchronize your customer’s workout data with their Virtuagym profile.
As soon as the customer uses the workout equipment, they simply need to hold their RFID tag to it, and the device starts recording the workout.
The data is then automatically uploaded to your customers’ Virtuagym profiles, where it is available for future reference and progress tracking.
