We live in a world where people want what they want, when they want it, how they want it.

This translates into some unique implications when it comes to designing a relevant and competitive fitness amenity space today.

We all want to work out when it’s convenient for us. With endless online streaming and live video options, one can literally engage in a guided workout anytime, anywhere in the world, which today creates some significant hurdles for gyms to try and compete with.

Exercise variety is also an expectation. From yoga to a HIIT circuit to a 30-minute core workout, many guests wish to gravitate from one modality to the next on a daily basis.

Tracking everything from our steps, to calories, to performance, to reps, to speed and distance has become the norm. We covet technology and we measure everything.

To top it all off, we expect all of these things be available to us within a dynamic, social, shared workout environment or we are not interested in coming. We are motivated by others, and seek interaction, connection and community as part of our exercise experience.

How then, does one solve for these things within a largely unsupervised fitness amenity?

Advantage Fitness Products has made this our mission.

With our design-first approach, we feature Aktiv Solutions’ completely innovative digital platform providing even more forward-thinking that will help solve for your ever-changing and evolving challenges keeping up with the Jones.
