The very best moments from our first Elevate show…
The team at FitQuest had a very busy time at Elevate 2017 this week. We had two FitQuest machines in operation from the moment the doors opened at ExCel right until the end of both days. Our two trainers – Sebastian and Alexandra – were kept busy with lots of interested visitors with a full range of fitness abilities and roles within the industry.
It’s always lovely to watch the transformation that takes place when people who are curious about how fit they actually are, begin the FitQuest measurement process. It only takes 4 minutes, during which we take 8 measurements including heart rate recovery, upper and lower body endurance, upper body strength and explosive power. Once users have completed the five tasks, we reveal the results on the dashboard and depending on how high their score, they may even feature on the leaderboard! Many people are really surprised with what they learn – that’s the thing about fitness, it’s not always as you expect. In terms of quantified-self, fitness measurement is engaged with more regularly and measured more accurately on mainland Europe and in the US, where FitQuest is currently being used in a number of gyms to help members achieve their specific fitness goals. Here in the UK, many people are active and lots of people go to the gym, workout and attend classes but most people don’t actually know how fit they are, what areas of weakness they have nor whether they are fit for their age. At FitQuest, we believe that once people know their fitness scores and their areas of weakness, they can start to target them. By using this knowledge and their personalised data – and by working hand in hand with trainers at their gym they can achieve excellent results.
We wanted to share a few photos from the last two days, so you can see some of the fun we had with all the visitors to our stand. To those of you who visited us on Stand 285, it was great to meet and talk to you all. Thanks for taking the 4 minutes to check out your fitness levels and we hope the results help you with your fitness programmes.
Make sure you come and visit us again next time to get an update and see if you have managed to better your scores!
The team at FitQuest.
