Fitness Club Virtual Classes & Cardio Monitoring

Slowly progressing on this data compilation, amidst many other initiatives.  Spent yesterday evening studying three solutions:

Wexer –  Focused on delivering pre-packaged workouts via video to your club to fill the gaps in your in-studio schedule.  They’ve made several acquisitions, including a mobile app development shop to try to be the “one stop technology shop” for clubs.   In over 4,000 clubs.  No API or 3rd party integrations mentioned.   800+ classes online.

Fitcloudconnect – they take a different approach and make it easy for your club to build your own content / catalog of workouts with the trainers you already employ.  A goal of this is to maintain the brand attribution to your studio, but it grows the offering more slowly and organically.  They mention an API on their website but there are no details on it.

Trainerize – seem to be  more focused on 1-1 trainer-client interactions and smaller facilities.   Lots of emphasis on integration with other apps like MindBody and communication apps like Skype.  They also plug into Zapier, one of the flag bearers of the “citizen integrator/consumer iPaaS” movement.  (If you are in the software business and don’t know what “iPaaS” is, call me.  Seriously.)   A few wearable integrations (Fitbit, Withings) are touted as well.  50K+ trainers on platform.

If you are interested in learning more, I have a much larger, more detailed compilation of information on these and other apps in this space.   And if this stuff interests you and you will be at CES, I’d love to connect in person when I’m there.   Best to message me on LinkedIn.     And I’ll keep adding summary notes here on the blog as I get through more of the solutions.
