MUNICH, May 19, 2020—Finally, the time has come: fitness and health facilities around the globe are gradually resuming operations. However, the world has changed fundamentally in recent weeks in the wake of the Corona pandemic: gyms need to adapt their processes and routines in order to remain successful in the “new normality”. EGYM has therefore developed Corona Gym Solution within a very short time, a package of many intelligent solutions that meet both the new regulations and the increased safety and hygiene needs of members, and of course the business interests of operators. The aim of Corona Gym Solution is to quickly restore the studios to full functionality. The package contains a wealth of innovative components – from the brand new Immunity Boost training program to strengthen the immune system, to mobile training slot booking and hygiene checks.
The Corona Gym Solution also takes local regulations into account, such as the disinfection of all equipment after each use, where the intervals in circuit training are automatically increased by ten seconds to allow sufficient time for this. The Corona Gym Solution from EGYM contains:
Mobile Training Slot Booking – the EGYM Branded Member App allows operators to efficiently manage capacity with booking of time slots to ensure that members train safely while complying with all applicable guidelines and social distance measures. Members can view or book available training slots from anywhere via the app. It couldn’t be more convenient and safe!
Special training programs to strengthen immunity – especially strength training – are the key to reducing underlying diseases and strengthening the immune system. EGYM has developed the new Immunity Boost training program specifically for this purpose. Its granular intensity control ensures growth stimulation and effectiveness of the training, while avoiding over- and underloading.
An easy-to-use mobile platform that enhances the gym with a free digital offer during the reopening phase. With the Member App, operators can also support their members outside the studio and provide access to virtual workouts to further promote involvement within the fitness studio community. The displays of the EGYM machines as well as the Branded Member App automatically and regularly remind the members to comply with the hygiene regulations; via App, the members in turn immediately give their personal hygiene feedback to their studio.
Corona Gym Solution Marketing Kit – operators will find everything they need to ensure safe training for all members: from floor stickers that help members navigate and show them the correct running routes and starting and waiting points, to equipment stickers that draw attention to correct equipment (e.g. “No shoes”, “No water bottles”, “Only with towel, etc.), to posters and flyers for the new Immunity Boost training program.
EGYM is offering the new features as well as EGYM+ (formerly EGYM Premium) free of charge to all fitness studios during the reopening phase to enable operators to make a successful restart under the current particularly challenging circumstances.
