What is FitLinxx?
FitLinxx is a computerized training assistant that can be used by all of our members at no cost.
No Pencil and Paper Needed
FitLinxx will record everything for you. For strength training, a FitLinxx computer is attached to the LifeFitness machines. During your workout, the following information is displayed and recorded:
- pace of repetitions
- exercise range of motion
In addition, the computer system can collect data from your cardiovascular workout including the amount of time you exercise, the calories expended in your workout, and the type of workout you completed.
Extensive Options to Record Data
Most cardiovascular machines and Life Fitness strength training machines are directly wired to the ActiveLinxx system. You can also manually log activities completed in the Wellness Centers (running on the track, lifting free weights, swimming, group fitness classes, etc.) or outside of the facility (hiking, biking, walking the trail and more!).
While performing your strength exercises on a FitLinxx-powered machine, the training computer coaches you throughout your set. The attached computer screen will display your speed and range of motion as you are performing the exercise. This interactive coaching and immediate feedback helps increase safety, proper form, and motivation. The data that is collected can be illustrated through graphs and summary sheets so you can immediately see your progress in action.
Track Your Performance
FitLinxx allows each individual to see their entire workout history in the facility or online at home. Progress reports can also be emailed to you including your workout history and more. FitLinxx provides personalized programs, gives ongoing individual feedback and is a useful tool for everyone interested in knowing their health and wellness progress.
