At the J. A. Walters Family YMCA, we are proud to offer FitLinxx to our members!
FitLinxx is a computerized training assistant that can be used by all of our YMCA facility members. A very small FitLinxx computer is attached to a piece of fitness equipment. During a strength-training workout, the FitLinxx computer captures information, including the amount of weight you lift, the pace at which you complete each repetition, the number of repetitions you complete, the number of sets you complete, and the speed and range of motion of your exercise. In addition, the computer system can collect data from your cardiovascular workout including the amount of time you workout, the calories expended in your workout, the type of workout you completed, and even remembers your machine settings. Also, if you are not using a FitLinxx-Powered Machine, you can manually enter your workout, including activities that you may do away from our facility like walking, running, bicycling, hiking and much more.
While you are performing your exercise on a FitLinxx-Powered Machine, the training computer coaches you throughout your workout or throughout your set. The data that is collected can be illustrated through graphs and summary sheets so that you can immediately see your progress in action. FitLinxx enables our YMCA staff to easily create programs and track member performance. FitLinxx also allows our staff to expand beyond the four walls of the YMCA facility because FitLinxx is accessible via the internet. You may view your workout progress and data collected at your leisure from your home computer. FitLinxx enables our fitness instructors and personal trainers to develop and monitor personalized and individualized programs for members and provides ongoing, immediate individual feedback.
FitLinxx is a useful tool for everyone interested in knowing his or her health and wellness progress!
