Promotional feature: Technogym - Introducing Technogym Biocircuit

Exercises, workload, work/rest ratio and pace have been defined and integrated into personalised programmes

Published in Health Club Management 2019 issue 10
The Technogym Biocircuit enables operators to deliver customised 22- and 30-minute workouts
The Technogym Biocircuit enables operators to deliver customised 22- and 30-minute workouts

Losing weight, building strength, wellbeing and good health: whatever needs attract your members to your facility can be met by Biocircuit, the new circuit training solution from Technogym which offers personalised workouts to help users achieve their goals.

Biocircuit’s guided programmes deliver engaging experiences that require no adjustments or wait-time, since exercises, workload, work/rest ratio and pace have been defined and integrated into personalised programmes.

Offering a quick and effective 22- or 30-minute workout, Biocircuit includes everything end-users need for the best muscle activation. Moreover, thanks to the Technogym Biodrive patent, Biocircuit is the first training line offering a personalised workout in a safe, guided and effective way.

Based on revolutionary aerospace technology, Biodrive is a motor controller that delivers a tailored workout to help users achieve the best results in the shortest amount of time.

Biodrive is the only system on the market that is connected with the native software of the circuit; it requires only one login and is totally customisable to the users’ needs.

Different needs require different programmes, only Biodrive can balance all phases of movement, both concentric and eccentric, in order to provide each user with a personal programme:

• RESISTANCE PROFILES
Biodrive offers different intensity profiles in order to meet the needs of people requiring isotonic resistance, needing to reduce inertia, or choosing to use viscous resistance

• ADAPTIVE WORKLOAD
Biodrive ensures that the workload is constantly controlled

• SPOTTER ASSISTANCE
Biodrive activates the spotter function to provide assistance to users to effectively manage their workout

• PACE
Biodrive selects the proper pace based on users' needs to achieve maximum effectiveness

The Biocircuit format includes equipment that automatically adjusts to the user’s requirements, consoles that display programmes on each machine, flooring that guides users to the next station and a Unity Self dedicated kiosk where users start and finish their journey. This also keeps all the equipment synchronised.

The Biocircuit equipment range includes:

• BIOSTRENGTH
A complete range of up to nine pieces of strength equipment, including a motorised seat adjustment system for a fast and seamless setup

• RUN
With a dynamically adaptive running surface and fast track system, enabling users to adjust speed and incline on the fly

• BIKE
Offering three training positions, easy entry pedals, fast track and fully automatic saddle height adjustment

• SYNCHRO
With the longest stride of 67cm, natural total body movement and adjustable ramp to change gradient from five to 35 degrees.
