Mywellness On The Move
Fitness suite users at Creswell Leisure Centre can now monitor their health regimes while on the move thanks to the introduction of a brand new exercise and training programme.
The mywellness cloud application has been installed as a ‘pilot’ in the centre’s fitness suite - only the second in the country to have this installed, the other being the Olympic Village in London.
The application allows users to create their own training programme in seconds without supervision. A training programme can be selected from a programmes library according to the users’ needs, sports or aspirations, level of experience, time available and the equipment currently installed at the centre.
Every time the user undertakes a workout, it is stored on a ‘key’ which also gives advice and guidance on each workout. Once a user has completed a workout the data is automatically sent to a server where it can be accessed at anytime from the mywellness.com website or mywellness mobile app.
Council Leader, Councillor Eion Watts said, “This is the very latest in technology and we are delighted that Creswell has been chosen as a ‘pilot’ centre. Improving people’s health and wellbeing is a top priority for us and this technology will give the user a totally different experience and allow them to set and monitor their own training programme and goals at a pace that suits them.
“It can offer everything from programmes to lose weight and build strength to programmes that improve muscle tone and fitness. And after speaking to a few of the gym members it is clear that this is what they want and they can’t wait to get started and using this new facility.”
Anyone who wishes to use this new facility must sign a Data Protection agreement form and it is hoped that once the pilot scheme has been completed, the mywellness cloud facility will be available in the Council’s other fitness suites.
