FitQuest, are excited to announce our partnership with The Gym Group with 44 FitQuest machines installed in gyms across London at the end of 2017 and a further 76 installs in locations nationwide, meaning that a total of 120 sites across the country will benefit from the new FitQuest BIA machines. Addressing the growing popularity of fitness tracking in gyms, the machines provide a comprehensive fitness assessment helping members to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
Through FitQuest’s unique four minute testing protocol measuring a person’s physical capacity over eight parameters resulting in a wider range of data and feedback to users than other devices available, as well as a much more accurate analysis. This unique testing can support operators’ goals by offering tailored exercise programming for gym goers, based on a breadth of data on their physical fitness.
The new machines for The Gym Group are the first of their kind to be fitted with the MIE FitQuest Body Composition Analyser which uses standard techniques to determine body composition. Through small, varying electrical currents, the machines can determine body fat and muscle percentage as well as a user’s hydration levels. In addition to the standard FitQuest score which measures fitness against average gender and age groups, the new machines will provide a more complete assessment for users with both a fitness and body composition analysis.
“We’re proud to be working with The Gym Group to help provide their members with greater insight into their health,” said Brian Firth, FitQuest CEO. “Following our successful trial, it was clear that the robustness and rigour of the new machines was a perfect fit for The Gym Group environment. Not only does it provide a value-added service for their top-tier members, the machines can be operated by members without staff supervision, making it the perfect addition to a low-cost fitness operator.”
“The FitQuest machine is more than just a stand-out product in the field of fitness measurement, it is a tool to help members on their fitness journey,” said John Treharne, The Gym Group CEO. “With an engaging and easy-to-use interface, combined with the comprehensive body composition analysis, the machines provide sophisticated fitness measurements for our members. We have just launched a new membership called “LIVE IT.” which brings a range of added benefits to our members. The FitQuest machines provide a key benefit for these “LIVE IT.” members, providing them with the tools and information they need to track their progress and find their fit.”
FitQuest worked alongside The Gym Group to install the machines and will continue assisting with the ongoing development of programming they can provide to their members using the machines. The installation follows a successful pilot programme earlier in 2017. The roll-out is currently underway, and machines will be available to members of The Gym Group in all sites in Spring 2018.
