Prescribe’s iPad app enables easy programme design


Prescribe – App in focus


The future of exercise programming has arrived Following 20 years of experience in creating end-user management and prescription solutions, Technogym introduces Prescribe, an online application for fitness facilities that allows instructors to quickly and easily create truly personalised training programmes for members. This is done via the revolutionary new iPad application – which allows quick and easy design of bespoke programmes with accompanying pictures or videos – or a gym PC, enabling facilities to retain a high level of personal interaction.


Bolsover District Council uses Prescribe to personalise their members’ training experience Bolsover District Council runs three sites, including Clowne Sports Centre, Creswell Leisure Centre and Frederick Gent Community Sports Centre. Having previously used Technogym’s Wellness System at Clowne Sports Centre, the Council decided to embrace the increased flexibility and modular aspects


of Technogym’s mywellness cloud online platform. The Council opted to start with the Technogym Self application, which allowed all the members to download safe and effective pre-loaded training programmes. Once all members had created a


mywellness cloud account, Bolsover District Council decided to add the Prescribe app to their programming solution. This enabled instructors to create personalised training programmes for individual members – an important feature for groups of users who are unfamiliar with exercise. Exercise and fi tness referral offi cer


Arron Johnson says: “Prescribe is a great app in my opinion. It has allowed us to track our clients a lot more in order to achieve progress more effi ciently. It’s been very benefi cial for the referred population, as many have never stepped into a gym before. Prescribe allows us to make it a lot easier for our clients to achieve their goals.” As part of their personal induction,


new members create their own mywellness cloud account and are assessed for their fi tness levels and goals. Their trainer then uses Prescribe to create a tailored programme, which they


can download and view directly from a VISIOSELF kiosk on each gym fl oor. These programmes are stored on


the members’ personal mywellness account and can be accessed via the free mywellness app for smartphones, or via a device such as the TGS Key, which can be inserted into each gym machine to automatically upload the prescribed exercise settings and workout data – without the need for any manual input. Arron says: “We have a big population


of referral members who are classifi ed as obese, and we often recommend low level interval training for them. The Prescribe app allows me to input an interval approach on the CV machines. Users just plug the key in the machine and off they go, with the programme loaded. This helps them avoid having to change intensity levels or speed every minute.” “Prescribe also allows me to see


when the clients have been training, and message them instantly to motivate them. Through the messaging system, I can discuss their progress and tweak their programmes. It’s like having a personal trainer at their side!” he adds. Visit Technogym at LIW 2013 to fi nd
