Medway, MA (PRWEB) March 12, 2014 — Today Cybex International, a leading manufacturer of premium exercise equipment, announced the launch of CybexGO. The Netpulse-enabled digital media and fitness platform was designed to provide users with an improved exercise experience. From virtual workout environments to live HD TV, on-demand content and asset management features, the new console will be available for the Cybex 700 Cardio Series line of equipment in spring 2014.
“CybexGO further elevates our premier cardio series with the addition of media, tracking and monitoring capabilities,” said Art Hicks, CEO of Cybex. “By staying at the forefront of both innovation and product offerings, we aim to provide users with a comprehensive fitness experience.”
Entertain & Engage The CybexGO platform provides personalized entertainment to keep users immersed in their workout routines. On-demand options include hundreds of popular and classic TV shows, movie trailers, music videos, and video game trailers. The easy-to-use touchscreen allows users to create and save personalized playlists of their favorite music videos. CybexGO can also be used to engage members through a custom club channel.
Virtual Active™ delivers an immersive workout experience by offering cinema-quality, first person videos that transport users and transform their workouts. Train on iconic trails in pristine national parks, jog in some of the country’s most beautiful cities or ride through the exotic landscapes of the Swiss Alps, Australia or Italy.
Set Goals & Track Workouts Standard on all 700 Cardio Series products is the CardioTouch™ display, a single command center that allows users to select workouts and control equipment all in one place. Additionally, the system allows users to set individualized goals such as calories burned, duration or distance covered. Workouts can be tracked across all CybexGO equipped 700 Cardio Series equipment. Integration with Netpulse One allows users to keep track of their workout history; view statistics by day, week, month or year; integrate third party apps and fitness trackers such as MapMyFitness and FitBit; and add sessions that were completed outside the gym. Users can also participate in fitness challenges to further motivate themselves to reach new goals.
Asset Management The CybexGO platform provides facilities with the necessary tools to manage their equipment and make smarter business decisions. Use the analytics feature to view and monitor equipment usage, including total number and duration of workouts, monitor wear and tear for proper rotation, and determine which equipment is most popular among members.
The new CybexGO Netpulse-enabled platform is a comprehensive exercise experience that can be tailored to each user’s personal preferences. From tracking to entertainment, all fitness and media capabilities can now be accessed at the touch of a button.
