The Tractiv8 customer-facing app, powered by the DataHub, provides members with a way to inform their leisure facility should they contract coronavirus. Tractiv8 then uses the facility’s data within the DataHub to establish who’s been in the building and when, and so identify at-risk groups automatically.
The app examines activity, location and time of exposure, allowing operators to quickly communicate with at-risk members. This can be done directly through the DataHub platform via email or through the Tractiv8 app.
Tractiv8 gives businesses a critical component in tackling perhaps the biggest re-opening challenge – instilling confidence in members and reassuring them their safety is a priority. This is essential if the industry is to drive participation to restart revenue streams and secure existing memberships while attracting new ones.
Tractiv8 is easy to set up and can be deployed in readiness for facilities re-opening across a single site or an entire estate. There is no location (GPS) tracking of individuals and all data is anonymously captured, processed and managed by the sector trusted DataHub platform.
Cost: Tractiv8 costs £495 per site as an annual licence

Createability
Covid-19 Safe Return Site Survey - a walk-through, either in person or virtually to assess your facility and draw up recommendations tailored to your site and bespoke to your business, armed with your knowledge about your members’ behaviours and requirements, ready for reopening.
It’s easy to see how social distancing and cleanliness can be maintained at reception with hand sanitisation, floor markings, protective screens and temperature monitoring, but what about: Circulation and movement throughout the building Access to changing facilities Social distancing in fitness areas, studios, health suites, pools, sports halls, cafes and children’s play Touch points at doors, shower controls, cubicles, lockers and benches Mechanical ventilation Operators could be opening themselves up to claims if an individual contracts COVID-19 and subsequently falls seriously ill or even worse. So there are numerous issues that must be satisfied for organisations to be seen to be acting in the public’s best interest and for the safety of all. Key considerations are contaminated surfaces, social distancing, avoidance of transferring virus through ventilation and air-conditioning systems. Applying this to each and every part of the facility may be difficult and every aspect needs to be risk assessed. Createability has more than 25 years' experience creating fitness and leisure environments. Our team can visit your site and carry out a full survey with recommendations of steps to be taken pre-opening, and, should you wish, can carry out any work required.

Provides effective wellness treatment in a safe space with minimal contact between gym staff and members or guests. Salt therapy (halotherapy) may be added to a pod or a closet-sized treatment room and feature a salt wall and halogenerator. Safe, 100 per cent natural and healthy — Halotherapy improves breathing and achieves symptomatic relief from respiratory and skin ailments through the use of a natural, basic mineral — pure sodium chloride (salt).
Sodium chloride is an essential element for the regulation of mucus in the lungs and upper respiratory system. It cleanses the respiratory tract and strengthens lung function by stimulating the body’s internal processes. Simply inhale and exhale while in the halotherapy room, a controlled environment. The tiny, negatively ionized salt micro-particles will help improve breathing and more. By expanding the airway to increase lung function and oxygen saturation, halotherapy enhances athletic performance, muscle endurance and recovery time. When combined with diaphragmatic breathing, halotherapy strengthens abdominal wall muscles and improves overall breathing capacity, lung function and oxygenation.

The facilities maintenance package allows clients to rapidly implement enhanced cleaning regimes, maintenance programs and checklist routines, as well as making these trackable and auditable, so that they can be published publicly to demonstrate standards and efficiency in keeping facilities hygienic for visitors.
Cost: All facilities are licensed on a low monthly rental model. Prices per license are typically under £100 per month for small operators, with volume based discounts for larger ones. The number of licenses required depends on the peak staff count using the solutions over busiest periods.

Merlinsoft Limited
Merlin Tickets - Bookings and Admissions Software. Merlin 'Sitebuilder' allows any operator to create their own bookings platform and set up sessions for any facility, activity or resource on their website. Users will then be able to book their visits online, receive an e-mail confirmation of their booking and an electronic 'ticket', which can be redeemed on their visit. This ticket is then only valid for the activity on the date and time specified. Once redeemed this ticket cannot be re-used or passed to another user.
The advantage of the system is that all bookings can be controlled from the website, with payment in advance where appropriate, and social distancing can be maintained at all times, by limiting the number of users visiting the venue at any one time. The number of visitors per session is controlled by the venue and can be a mixture of online or walk-up users as appropriate. This will allow the gym operator total control over the number of visitors in the venue at any one time and also ensure that they are meeting all the governmental targets on social distancing and personal contact by the use of an accredited admissions control system.
Cost: The main software is free to set up and use and links directly into the user's own website. If the system is used for any activity or facility that requires a payment, then there is a 2.5% transaction fee, paid monthly in arrears.

The action plan encourages companies to establish a response team to set out a timeline defining actions to take, by whom and by when, as they count down to reopening. It recommends clear communication internally and externally, announcing the planned date for reopening and setting milestones to enable effective operations from the start. In some cases, certain areas of a business may open with restrictions, reduced hours or new booking requirements, all of which should be considered. The plan sets out advice on re-engaging staff or recruiting new team members, delivering training where necessary, to enable safe supervision of facilities. Work arrangements may need to be reviewed for vulnerable workers and others who need to stay at home. In terms of reviving revenue, it identifies work that will need to be done by marketing and sales teams, liaising with existing and new clients and reinstating any frozen payments.

Virtuagym
Virtuagym is a software provider for fitness businesses and has created the world's first all-in-1 turnkey digital membership solution Stronger Together. To help with reopening, we’re launching a real-time attendance tracking feature that integrates with our visitor’s registration (check-in) system. This feature will not only give club owners and staff members insights into on-site attendance, but can also automatically allow or deny access depending on the number of people that are currently in the gym. Club members can be identified through manual check in, checking in with barcode or RFID, or through our new mobile in-app QR-Code check-in. A club member then simply opens the app and scans their QR. We’re also working on connecting our booking solution with the customer check-in system, meaning a member can only check in if they have booked a time slot at that specific time. Our system also allows target group specific access.

Wattbike
The Wattbike Health Assessment, and specifically the accredited cardiorespiratory test (CRF test), a measure of VO2max which is in-built into the Wattbike Hub app and can be performed on any Wattbike product.
Scientific research on the benefits of exercise, and how our bodies react to it, have identified CRF as an accurate way to measure someone’s physical health. The CRF test also functions like a risk assessment, and can be used as a preventative measure to determine if an individual is at particular risk of developing cardiorespiratory or metabolic disorders. Wattbike created an easy-to-do, accessible, and accurate test that would give each individual their CRF score and predicted VO2max to show individuals their current health and fitness benchmarks; assign each individual a personalised, effective training plan. There has been an exponential growth in the number of studies assessing the association between measures of CRF, mortality, and other health outcomes. In a growing number of studies, CRF has been demonstrated as a more powerful predictor of mortality risk than traditional factors such as hypertension, smoking and obesity. If gyms are able to provide this test as they reopen, they will be able to act as a health consultancy providing the correct workout settings in relation to individual power and heart rate training zones, which are all established from the CRF test.
Cost: Commercial Wattbike products: Wattbike AtomX: RRP: £3200 ex VAT Wattbike Icon: RRP: £2600 ex VAT The CRF test is within the Wattbike Hub app and can be performed on any Wattbike product.

Zidac Laboratories
Zidac Laboratories produces hospital-grade hand sanitiser and is used by businesses across the UK to help protect their employees and customers. Its formula kills even more than 99.9% of bacteria and is available in multiple formats including a 500ml pump, 100ml tube, 5000ml canister, and hands-free dispensers.
For gyms, which are full of shared surfaces and opportunity for germ transmission, hand gels must be made available throughout the building to help customers feel safe, protected, and reassured that hygiene is taken seriously. There’s no point investing in hand sanitiser if it’s not fit for purpose. There’s been an influx of new manufacturers bringing new sanitiser onto the market to fill demand, however these are often poor quality, and unable to kill germs. There are some key identifiers that can help gym owners spot quality products though. Alcohol percentage is the most important as for sanitiser to be fully anti-bacterial, it must contain at least 70% alcohol. Likewise, clearly advertised testing results – those that kill 99.9% and above are considered best – and accreditation from the likes of the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and the International Organisation of Standardisation (ISO), are usually good authenticators for quality.
Cost: Zidac Mini Dispensers cost £65. Zidac Maxi dispensers cost £222 and you get 5L of sanitiser for free with each purchased maxi dispenser. Further refills of 5L cost £19.99 excluding delivery costs.

The Tractiv8 customer-facing app, powered by the DataHub, provides members with a way to inform their leisure facility should they contract coronavirus. Tractiv8 then uses the facility’s data within the DataHub to establish who’s been in the building and when, and so identify at-risk groups automatically.
The app examines activity, location and time of exposure, allowing operators to quickly communicate with at-risk members. This can be done directly through the DataHub platform via email or through the Tractiv8 app.
Tractiv8 gives businesses a critical component in tackling perhaps the biggest re-opening challenge – instilling confidence in members and reassuring them their safety is a priority. This is essential if the industry is to drive participation to restart revenue streams and secure existing memberships while attracting new ones.
Tractiv8 is easy to set up and can be deployed in readiness for facilities re-opening across a single site or an entire estate. There is no location (GPS) tracking of individuals and all data is anonymously captured, processed and managed by the sector trusted DataHub platform.
Cost: Tractiv8 costs £495 per site as an annual licence

Createability
Covid-19 Safe Return Site Survey - a walk-through, either in person or virtually to assess your facility and draw up recommendations tailored to your site and bespoke to your business, armed with your knowledge about your members’ behaviours and requirements, ready for reopening.
It’s easy to see how social distancing and cleanliness can be maintained at reception with hand sanitisation, floor markings, protective screens and temperature monitoring, but what about: Circulation and movement throughout the building Access to changing facilities Social distancing in fitness areas, studios, health suites, pools, sports halls, cafes and children’s play Touch points at doors, shower controls, cubicles, lockers and benches Mechanical ventilation Operators could be opening themselves up to claims if an individual contracts COVID-19 and subsequently falls seriously ill or even worse. So there are numerous issues that must be satisfied for organisations to be seen to be acting in the public’s best interest and for the safety of all. Key considerations are contaminated surfaces, social distancing, avoidance of transferring virus through ventilation and air-conditioning systems. Applying this to each and every part of the facility may be difficult and every aspect needs to be risk assessed. Createability has more than 25 years' experience creating fitness and leisure environments. Our team can visit your site and carry out a full survey with recommendations of steps to be taken pre-opening, and, should you wish, can carry out any work required.

When combined with diaphragmatic breathing, halotherapy strengthens abdominal wall muscles and improves overall breathing capacity, lung function and oxygenation.

Life Fitness is also offering a fitness equipment audit to help customers ensure equipment is ready for reopening.
The e-book provides operators with comprehensive information, advice, and practical guidance on all aspects of preparing gym facilities for reopening post-lockdown. It covers key operations-focused topics including health and safety, equipment maintenance and cleanliness and managing capacity; this is supported by the gym redesign guide, which provides highly detailed, step-by-step methods to successfully create and implement new gym floor layouts, adhering to government guidelines and in-line with member requirements and user demands. The e-book also advises on member-led strategies including effective ways to communicate to and engage with existing and prospective members, addressing new behaviours and changes in attitude, and ways in which to support and prepare gym staff for reopening. The e-book also focuses on how best to utilise digital, both in-club and externally, to maximise member engagement. With those customers that have Life Fitness’ Halo platform, data and analytics regarding equipment usage and member activity is also being used to inform reopening strategies and gym floor redesigns, while Halo’s member-facing app can be utilised as part of effective comms strategies.
Cost: Both the e-book and guide are available to download free of charge. The fitness equipment audit is £230 (+VAT).

Merlinsoft Limited
Merlin Tickets - Bookings and Admissions Software. Merlin 'Sitebuilder' allows any operator to create their own bookings platform and set up sessions for any facility, activity or resource on their website. Users will then be able to book their visits online, receive an e-mail confirmation of their booking and an electronic 'ticket', which can be redeemed on their visit. This ticket is then only valid for the activity on the date and time specified. Once redeemed this ticket cannot be re-used or passed to another user.
The advantage of the system is that all bookings can be controlled from the website, with payment in advance where appropriate, and social distancing can be maintained at all times, by limiting the number of users visiting the venue at any one time. The number of visitors per session is controlled by the venue and can be a mixture of online or walk-up users as appropriate. This will allow the gym operator total control over the number of visitors in the venue at any one time and also ensure that they are meeting all the governmental targets on social distancing and personal contact by the use of an accredited admissions control system.
Cost: The main software is free to set up and use and links directly into the user's own website. If the system is used for any activity or facility that requires a payment, then there is a 2.5% transaction fee, paid monthly in arrears.

It recommends clear communication internally and externally, announcing the planned date for reopening and setting milestones to enable effective operations from the start. In some cases, certain areas of a business may open with restrictions, reduced hours or new booking requirements, all of which should be considered. The plan sets out advice on re-engaging staff or recruiting new team members, delivering training where necessary, to enable safe supervision of facilities. Work arrangements may need to be reviewed for vulnerable workers and others who need to stay at home. In terms of reviving revenue, it identifies work that will need to be done by marketing and sales teams, liaising with existing and new clients and reinstating any frozen payments.

Virtuagym
Virtuagym is a software provider for fitness businesses and has created the world's first all-in-1 turnkey digital membership solution Stronger Together. To help with reopening, we’re launching a real-time attendance tracking feature that integrates with our visitor’s registration (check-in) system. This feature will not only give club owners and staff members insights into on-site attendance, but can also automatically allow or deny access depending on the number of people that are currently in the gym. Club members can be identified through manual check in, checking in with barcode or RFID, or through our new mobile in-app QR-Code check-in. A club member then simply opens the app and scans their QR. We’re also working on connecting our booking solution with the customer check-in system, meaning a member can only check in if they have booked a time slot at that specific time. Our system also allows target group specific access.

Wattbike
The Wattbike Health Assessment, and specifically the accredited cardiorespiratory test (CRF test), a measure of VO2max which is in-built into the Wattbike Hub app and can be performed on any Wattbike product.
Scientific research on the benefits of exercise, and how our bodies react to it, have identified CRF as an accurate way to measure someone’s physical health. The CRF test also functions like a risk assessment, and can be used as a preventative measure to determine if an individual is at particular risk of developing cardiorespiratory or metabolic disorders. Wattbike created an easy-to-do, accessible, and accurate test that would give each individual their CRF score and predicted VO2max to show individuals their current health and fitness benchmarks; assign each individual a personalised, effective training plan. There has been an exponential growth in the number of studies assessing the association between measures of CRF, mortality, and other health outcomes. In a growing number of studies, CRF has been demonstrated as a more powerful predictor of mortality risk than traditional factors such as hypertension, smoking and obesity. If gyms are able to provide this test as they reopen, they will be able to act as a health consultancy providing the correct workout settings in relation to individual power and heart rate training zones, which are all established from the CRF test.
Cost: Commercial Wattbike products: Wattbike AtomX: RRP: £3200 ex VAT Wattbike Icon: RRP: £2600 ex VAT The CRF test is within the Wattbike Hub app and can be performed on any Wattbike product.

Zidac Laboratories
Zidac Laboratories produces hospital-grade hand sanitiser and is used by businesses across the UK to help protect their employees and customers. Its formula kills even more than 99.9% of bacteria and is available in multiple formats including a 500ml pump, 100ml tube, 5000ml canister, and hands-free dispensers.
For gyms, which are full of shared surfaces and opportunity for germ transmission, hand gels must be made available throughout the building to help customers feel safe, protected, and reassured that hygiene is taken seriously. There’s no point investing in hand sanitiser if it’s not fit for purpose. There’s been an influx of new manufacturers bringing new sanitiser onto the market to fill demand, however these are often poor quality, and unable to kill germs. There are some key identifiers that can help gym owners spot quality products though. Alcohol percentage is the most important as for sanitiser to be fully anti-bacterial, it must contain at least 70% alcohol. Likewise, clearly advertised testing results – those that kill 99.9% and above are considered best – and accreditation from the likes of the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and the International Organisation of Standardisation (ISO), are usually good authenticators for quality.
Cost: Zidac Mini Dispensers cost £65. Zidac Maxi dispensers cost £222 and you get 5L of sanitiser for free with each purchased maxi dispenser. Further refills of 5L cost £19.99 excluding delivery costs.
