Remarkable fitness app compatibility
Because OpenHub was developed in cooperation with Wahoo and Ecofit Networks,
compatible with well over 100 leading fitness apps. That makes it easy for members to incorporate their workouts in the gym with what they track outside the gym.
You and your members will really appreciate that OpenHub seamlessly integrates into the most widely used and popular fitness apps. That means that members can capture feedback, be recognized on their social networks, and harness both of these to become an additional source of motivation for their workout program. So their experience will be as seamless as possible. Instead of managing multiple or proprietary apps, your members can focus on their fitness goals.
OpenHub gives you information you need to manage your facility
Unlike other proprietary offerings that are in the market today, OpenHub is compatible with most types of equipment and is incredibly easy to install into the new family of consoles.
OpenHub consoles relay detailed information about each piece of equipment which can be read and managed by you in one centralized system. Detailed reports tell you which fitness machines are being used most, how popular particular lines of equipment are, and which pieces of equipment are due for routine maintenance. It can even allow you to compare data across multiple gym locations.
Connects wirelessly Wi-Fi…and deliver a variety of options
OpenHub asset management is that it connects all of your equipment wirelessly without overwhelming your existing Wi-Fi network. Instead, it operates using a wireless radio network. High frequency radio waves transmit data throughout the premises, a method that is reliable and designed specifically for the busy fitness center environment.
Members can also enjoy a wide variety of entertainment options with the embedded TVs and optional personal viewing screens.
In addition, OpenHub provides connectivity options through USB and HDMI hardware, so users can even stream content from their mobile device. They can even charge their phone or tablet while they work out.
