McFit, Europe's leading gym chain with over a million members, began comprehensive further development of its training landscape in 2012. This involves bringing together eight new training modules, such as CYBERTRAINING, a boxing workout with the Klitschko brothers, an express workout in an innovative space concept on tried-and-tested McFit elements, such as targeted strength and endurance training on high-quality equipment. “When it comes to developing McFit training, we are taking a big stride towards forward-looking fitness innovations with the enhanced McFit training world and the new room concept of light, design and personally adapted acoustics”, explains Uwe Dolderer, McFit company spokesperson.
Since the beginning of the year, the McFit studio in Nuremberg-Doos has been showcasing the McFit brand experience training for the first time. As a result, some new studios have already been fitted out with the enhanced training landscape. And the McFit experience training is also used in all new studios, being retro-fitted in existing studios.
Pit stop The new McFit concept also includes a refreshment station: Here, McFit members can get drinks and nutritional supplements around the clock. A payment machine is integrated in the refreshment station, in Wanzl's robust and aesthetically appealing
The payment machine for topping up the membership card accepts banknotes – which can be easily read in all four directions – as well as coins and debit/credit cards. A coin checker with three self-filling coin hoppers is used for processing coins. Inserted coins thus automatically fill up the stock of small change again. The touchscreen with graphical user and service menu navigation guarantees ease of use. The payment machine, which is protected with an acoustic alarm, locks to prevent unauthorised removal of the cash box and coin hoppers.
Controlled access Two motorised Sirio turnstiles from Wanzl control access to the McFit studio in Nuremberg-Doos 24 hours a day. An installed card reader checks the access authorisation of every McFit member's membership card. The dual-armed Sirio turnstile can be used to exit freely when leaving. The electric swivel doors which are also installed act as an entrance and exit for wheelchair users, people with pushchairs and for deliveries.
