Derby Arena to have state-of-the-art interactive gym

Fri 7 Nov 2014

The Arena is set to have a state-of-the-art gym powered by leading Wellness company, Technogym. Our members willl be able to work out on new interactive equipment, including the most advanced cardio consoles in the market.

Councillor Alison Martin, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture said:

“Derby Arena is one of the most exciting new developments in the city. We have chosen to equip the gym with the very latest fitness equipment to present residents and members with the most interactive workout available today. We are looking forward to encouraging even more people in the city to become more active and healthy through the arena.”

The use of the latest technology means that you'll not only be able to work out on the latest equipment, but you'll also be able to track your progress at the gym and remotely. For your convenience we will be connected to Technogym’s mywellness cloud, which will enable us to stay in touch with our members in the gym and also on the go and at home. The new technology means that our staff will now be able to create and develop training programmes much quicker and ensure they suit your goals and lifestyles.

It is not just the applications that are high-tech at the Arena, our gym itself is kitted out with Excite+ machines – the fitness industry’s most popular range of professional cardiovascular equipment. These machines are fitted with UNITY – state of the art displays, allowing you to interact with the screen as you would when using a smartphone or a tablet. The technology will allow you to instantly log on to your personal mywellness account on the console, using QR code, contactless technology or the mywellness key. Your personal profile will have a record of your fitness training programme and history, as well as your favourite social media sites, applications, TV channels and websites.

This new technology will ensure that there is a training programme that suits your needs, lifestyle and ability. Omnia, a complete functional training solution offers limitless possibilities for training – such as strength, resistance, stability, flexibility, coordination and speed.

There'll also be Kinesis Stations available – Technogym patented ‘FullGravity’ technology systems that allow our members to train using natural everyday movements.

Feeling inspired? We are due to open early in 2015. If you are interested in pre-ordering your gym membership at Derby Arena, join the pre-order list. This'll allow you to become one of the first ones to use the facilities when Derby Arena opens.
