Supplier showcase: Tesqua upgrades its in-club experience

Tesqua Health and Sports Centre, Netherlands, has partnered with FunXtion, experts in digital fitness, to create an immersive, instructor-driven, group exercise boutique concept within its existing facility

We wanted technology at the heart of our boutique offer, delivering an unrivalled participant and instructor experience people will want to repeat time and time again

We didn’t just want to follow the crowd,” says Maarten Stuivenberg, founder at Tesqua. “We wanted to implement the very latest in digital technology so we called on the expertise of FunXtion and the end result has been incredible.”

Tesqua Health & Sport Centre, in the Dutch city of Ede, has been operating since 2003. Facilities include 15 tennis courts, a 500m² open plan workout space with a 1000m² gym with equipment, three exercise studios, a lounge and restaurant, a wellbeing suite and a creche.

“We were the first club to offer an interactive gym floor utilising the FunXtion Experience Station, which we installed in 2014. We wanted technology to be at the heart of our boutique offer, delivering an unrivalled participant and instructor experience that people will want to repeat time and time again,” says Stuivenberg.

In consultation with FunXtion, Tesqua has dedicated a third of its workout space to a fully immersive, group exercise ‘box’. Whilst no physical walls define the area, the look and feel is very different to the rest of the workout space.

The new group exercise space launched in October 2019 and is centred around a Queenax rig, with six FunXtion multiscreen solutions positioned at each exercise station. The 48” screens deliver individual exercise instruction, creating a personal digital coach at each station, and are linked to the audio and lighting circuits, ensuring all external stimuli create a totally immersive experience.

“The whole experience is geared towards delivering a memorable, fun and effective workout to everyone,” continues Stuivenberg. “The screens add a new element to our digital provision, complementing the incumbent provision delivered via the FunXtion app and the gym floor-based Experience Station.”

Mendel Witzenhausen, founder and MD at FunXtion adds: “Tesqua is a forward-thinking operator, keen to pioneer new solutions. At the Tesqua Health and Sport Centre we have created a connected digital ecosystem to provide members with easy access to fitness content both inside and outside the facility.”
