Life Fitness innovation combines outdoor exercise with small group training

Life Fitness innovation combines outdoor exercise with small group training
September 16, 2015

Leading fitness equipment supplier Life Fitness has expanded its offering for both group fitness providers and park management bodies with the launch of SYNRGY BlueSky.

An extension of the groundbreaking SYNRGY360, SYNRGY BlueSky is Life Fitness’ first small group training system designed specifically for outdoor use, offering 12 body weight training stations to create a fun, supportive and inviting workout environment for exercisers of all abilities.

SYNRGY BlueSky combines the benefits of outdoor exercise with one of the industry’s top trends, small group training.

Ranked as a top 10 fitness trend by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) for the past two years, small group training continues to gain popularity among fitness professionals and exercisers as a workout that encourages camaraderie, accountability and intensity, while still allowing trainers to offer individualised attention for continuous learning and progression.

Introducing the SYNRGY BlueSky product range, Life Fitness Commercial Strength Product Manager John Cassidy stated “across the globe, health clubs are designing innovative small group training programs using our SYNRGY360 system.
“With SYNRGY BlueSky, facilities can now bring those training programs outdoors with a product that is engineered to meet outdoor safety standards, withstand harsh weather conditions and provide a wide range of customisable configurations to fit a variety of spaces and exercisers.”

SYNRGY BlueSky provides facilities with limitless options for designing an engaging outdoor exercise space. Key customisable product features include:

Exercise Options: 12 stations and connectors include a press, row, step up platforms, dip/leg raise, ab crunch station, pull-up, short and long cargo nets, arc ladder, high rings, monkey bars and an arc traverse.
Scalable Design: Each exercise can be scaled to meet the user’s individual fitness level, making SYNRGY BlueSky the ideal training tool for beginners to advanced exercisers.
Flexible Configurations: Stations can be used separately in a circuit, or combined with various connectors to create more consolidated and efficient training spaces.
LFcodes: A QR code on each station gives users immediate access to exercise tutorials through the Life Fitness LFconnect mobile app.
Colour Options: 12 colour options allow facilities to customise the equipment to match their design preferences and enhance aesthetics.

Life Fitness Global Master Trainer Deborah McConnell adds “outdoor training is in demand with exercisers, and the stations and connectors on SYNRGY BlueSky empower trainers to create fun, energetic classes that can incorporate circuits and interval training.

“This versatility keeps exercisers engaged and allows for easy modifications to fit varying abilities.”
