New cardio equipment at CEM Can Ricart, much more than just an internet-connected machine.
Lovers of cardio training on machines are in luck this month now that we have upgraded the aerobic workout equipment on the second floor at CEM Can Ricart, expanding the capacity of the suite to allow more people to train at the same time, and above all increasing the performance benefits offered by the new equipment.
At first sight they look simply like machines with an HD screen and internet connection, but they are much more than just a treadmill or elliptical machine connected to a television screen. For starters, the design of the newly incorporated features benefits the morphology as well as the footing of the individual user, providing a more realistic sensation modelling outdoor training. But the main innovation is connected with the machine’s technology, which goes hand in hand with our personalised app in order to facilitate the measurement of performance results in training.
Following on from this, here is a rundown of some of the innovations that accompany this new technology:
Integration of the machine’s technology with the Lleuresport Fitness app. You can access training sessions on the machine with your membership card or bracelet, via the Lleuresport Fitness app on your phone, or with your app user details. As soon as you’ve accessed your training sessions via one of these means the machines will connect to the app, review the workouts for the week in question, including your best performance, and all the details will thereby be stored on the machines as well as on the app. It’s the perfect way to monitor your cumulative performance, inspire you to surpass the best of them, or maintain your level of output over the course of your training.
Creation of special programs and challenges. Our trainers will design programs with specific goals and challenges, and those programs will be recorded and stored on the machines under the button marked “Can Ricart routines” or Colom routines. Those challenges might be associated with preparation for a sports event, weight loss initiatives, competing against yourself, and much else besides. At this point the machine will display your training data, and you just have to give it your all, as the machine will adapt to the planning done by the trainer with no need to input anything else or push any buttons.
Social running and social biking. Among the machines interactive modalities you will be able to identify those trials related to social running or social biking via the orange logo. In interactive mode you can run or cycle with other people in the Can Ricart fitness suite, as well as any other user of life fitness machines around the world. As of now these trials are only available on the treadmills and exercycles, but on this equipment you will be able to see those ahead of you as well as those behind, together with a photo of you and therefore, most importantly, you can motivate yourself not to be overtaken and become a world beater.
Analysis and acquisition of important training session data. Knowing whether or not you are training effectively, and which area to focus on in order to get the best results, is something everyone who likes to train asks themselves. Now you can acquire the data that will help you to analyse your training in a much more realistic way. Ask a trainer so that they can help you to understand the different indices and get the best out of your sessions.
Internet connection. The machines come with a built-in HD screen, internet connection, and a range of games to ensure that your training is more enjoyable.
We will soon be bringing you more updates to the machines, an area for HIIT workouts on the treadmills, new training sessions, new interactive trials on their way…Don’t hesitate to try out the new machines, and above all don’t hesitate to ask for help from our specialists so they can help you out with any queries about usage. Enjoy!
