NEW TO ACTIV8

It is with great excitement that we can finally share with you the details of the planned investment in Activ8 Health and Fitness that is due to commence in October of this year. The developments will be carried out in three phases with each venue anticipating completion within one week, and you can expect to see big changes across all of our clubs.

The new £600,000 investment will include a major renewal of our current equipment provision through the continued partnership with industry giants Technogym, and will introduce several pieces of kit that cannot be found together anywhere in the North East. Comprising of Technogym’s cutting edge SKILL™ range of cardio machines and TEAMBEATS™ functional training rig, we will also be introducing wearable technology for the first time with Technogym’s Mywellness app, which will enable you to scan a piece of kit and watch a short video demonstration, log each workout and begin measuring results to improve your performance. This will be a fantastic tool that our fitness advisors can also access to work alongside you to create a tailored exercise programme and book regular appointments to review progress and set new goals.

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 are expanding the space in Billingham Forum to create an additional ESCAPE functional training area as seen on the plan. This space will also be home to the entire SKILL line, comprising of SKILLMILL, SKILLRUN, SKILLROW and SKILLBIKE, and will be complimented with the TEAMBEATS heart-rate training concept, 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 that is unlike any other group fitness experience. You simply check in with your wristband and your avatar will appear on the screen then you will work together and encourage your team mates.

We will also be introducing 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.

At Thornaby Pavilion we will be installing the cutting edge ESCAPE functional training rig that will enable fun and engaging group workouts that will be projected onto a large screen. This training rig will be fully compatible with Technogym’s TEAMBEATS and offers a variety of stations and small equipment to enhance every workout. You will be able to simply check in with your wristband and your avatar will appear on the screen then you will work together and encourage your team mates.

Thornaby Pavilion will have a range of equipment from the SKILL range including the SKILLRUN, SKILLMILL & SKILLROW equipment as well as a range of new cardio equipment. Take a look at some of the photos to the left.

Along with the entire Technogym SKILL range of cardio equipment, we will be installing a selection of 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.

We will also be introducing 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 will benefit from a complete makeover, which will include new flooring, re-decoration and a full equipment overhaul. New additions to this area will include an Olympic power rack and a range of cardio machines from the SKILL range.

An OMNIA 3 functional training rig will also be installed in the downstairs space incorporating TEAMBEATS heart-rate training to create an interactive group workout experience.

We will also be introducing 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, remaining by your side at all times.
