NEW TO ACTIV8

It is with great excitement that we can finally share with you the details of the recently completed refurbishment at all Activ8 Health and Fitness that concluded in December 2018. The developments were carried out in three phases with each venue completed within one week, and exciting changes across all of our fitness clubs.

The new £600,000 investment included a major renewal of our current equipment provision through the continued partnership with industry giants Technogym. Technogym produce the highest-quality gym equipment and have been the official supplier of fitness equipment to the Olympic and Paralympic Games for the last two decades – this is why Activ8 Health & Fitness continues to partnership with them to deliver the best experience for our members. Together, we have introduced several pieces of kit that cannot be found together anywhere in the North East; comprising of the latest Technogym Skill & Excite cardio machines, Pure plate-loaded strength equipment and TEAMBEATS group training platform. Brand new Escape Octagon functional training frames and accessories have also been introduced at all our fitness clubs for those seeking the latest in performance based functional training. Technogym’s Mywellness fitness app has also been adopted meaning you can now track your training results in real-time and it allows our fitness instructors to connect with you by creating workouts delivered straight to your chosen device.

This is a really exciting time for everyone involved with Activ8 including our staff and members.

As well as bringing more cardio and strength equipment to the main gym, we have expanded the space in Billingham Forum to create a brand new additional functional training area. This space is now home to the entire Technogym Skill line, comprising of Skillmill, Skillrun, Skillrow and Skillbike, and will be complimented with the Teambeats group training platform, delivering a fun and engaging workout by analysing performance metrics, such as heart rate, to optimise work and rest periods.

Teambeats which combines variety, efficiency and fun in a single workout is unlike any other group fitness experience. You simply check in with your wristband and your avatar will appear on the screen, you will then work together and encourage your team mates.

We have also adopted wearable technology through Technogym’s Mywellness app in our gyms for the first time which will allow members to create tailored exercise programmes, log workouts and track progress to improve performance. The new equipment will be compatible with the Mywellness app, meaning you can simply scan a piece of kit and watch video demonstrations to highlight a range of optional exercise based on your experience level.

Stockton Splash upstairs gym space has benefit from a complete makeover, which will include new flooring, re-decoration and a full equipment overhaul. New additions to this area include a Technogym Pure Strength olympic-standard power rack and a range of new cardio machines from the Skill and Excite range.

An Omnia 3 functional training frame has also been installed in the downstairs space incorporating Escape Functional Training accessories and Teambeats group training program to create an interactive group workout experience.

We have also introduced wearable technology for the first time with Technogym’s Mywellness app. The Mywellness app will keep track of your ‘moves’ day after day, and thanks to the ‘movergy index’, you will be able to view your overall activity status in an easy, intuitive way. In facilities with Mywellness technology, a certified personal trainer will use apps and professional measuring instruments to meet your needs with a custom programme.

Thornaby Pavilion now has an extensive range of equipment from the Technogym Skill line including the Skillrun, Skillmill & Skillrow as well as a range of new Xcite cardio equipment. Take a look at some of the photos to the left.

Along with the new Technogym Skill & Xcite cardio equipment, we have installed a selection of new Pure Strength plate-loaded resistance equipment for those looking to increase strength and mass, or develop toning and definition. Included in this range will be chest press, leg press, shoulder press and lat pulldown.
