Technogym powers Cockburn ARC’s fitness facility
Having welcomed more than 1.2 million patrons since it opened to the public in May 2017, the state-of-the-art Cockburn ARC (aquatic and recreation centre) has not only established itself as one of the leading facilities in metropolitan Perth but has also gained national and international recognition for its contemporary provision of community wellness and lifestyle opportunities.
With a rapidly growing population and existing facilities reaching the end of their lifespan, the City of Cockburn identified a need for a high quality aquatic and recreation centre to service its growing population back in 2009.
The resulting integrated aquatic, recreation, education and elite-athlete training facility houses a six-court stadium, nine aquatic spaces, three water slides, three group fitness studios and a huge fitness club space powered by Technogym and mywellness
The $109 million facility is also home to the Fremantle Dockers Football Club, a learning base for Curtin University students and a training facility for elite WA Institute of Sport swimmers.
Cockburn ARC’s health club is predominately technology-based, featuring state-of-the-art Technogym equipment, powered by mywellness (Technogym’s cloud-based digital platform).
Explaining what the fitness space offers, Adam Westberg, Cockburn ARC’s Programs Coordinator comments “we’re proud to have on offer the latest in cardio and strength equipment, including Technogym’s Excite Unity, Selection Pro, SKILLROW, SKILLMILL and Pure Strength – ensuring that we cater to all fitness and health needs.”
The facility’s mywellness technology allows users to track all activity performed at the gym via digital consoles built in to the equipment or via the app from a smartphone or tablet when outdoors.
Westburg added “incorporating and learning about mywellness has been an easy and enjoyable process. Members of all ages have seamlessly adopted the new technology.”
Whether it is measuring kilometres travelled or calories burned, mywellness is widely acknowledged as a valuable training companion – guiding users step-by-step until they reach their goal, thanks to personalised training programs and video tutorials.
Additionally, personal trainers can use the Cockburn ARC App, powered by mywellness, to track client’s progress, create customised programs and stay in touch if they’re travelling abroad – offering flexibility and convenience.
mywellness features that can benefit health clubs and facilities include:
• Prescribe: Create personalised training programs for clients based on their individual fitness needs using specific material or build a program from Technogym’s extensive library of routines and exercises.
• Self: Empower users to create their own training programs from a library of more than 2,000 routines and 5,000 exercises. Users can filter according to aspiration, fitness level, time and equipment available.
• Coach: Define regular training programs for clients, including diet and lifestyle recommendations. Follow their tracked activities in real time and stay in touch.
• Challenge: Generate exciting and motivating fitness competitions giving members a reason to keep coming back and encourage them to interact with each other through the challenges.
• Communicator: Transform cardio equipment into a marketing tool by sending a range of promotional messages to clients while they workout, or request feedback and opinions on your services.
• Asset: Monitor cardio equipment – see how it's being used, how often, and how it's functioning. Stay up to date with new content and software releases. Receive automatic messages when staff intervention is required.
