scape just launched MARS (short for Multi-Activity Resource Station), which gives touchscreen access to a library of exercise videos and pre-loaded workouts for people of any ability and demographic. MARS gives basic instruction on every Escape product, as they launch, along with a range of workout options, so even if there’s no one available to help, gym-goers will have the inspiration and guidance to safely and effectively do their workout. It instructs on a range of equipment, including balls, bags, barbells and dumbbells, as well as aerobics, strength, upper, lower and full body activity. The MARS screen features workout inspiration and exercise options. Gym-goers can get started immediately, with clear instructions and on-screen video. Gyms just need a power socket and the internet to offer MARS. The system is also suitable for unsupervised gyms, enabling them to stay up-to-date with the latest functional training offerings. There are three options: MARS Rack Pack consists of a Rack5, stocked with Escape equipment with the MARS screen as the centrepiece; MARS on a Frame can be mounted on any Octagon frame leg with a separate bracket 1.5m from the floor, so it’s easily visible and; Mars on the Wall is available with a wall bracket to create a consistent branded look with Escape’s equipment.

MARS bridges the gap between education and exercise Why should health and fitness operators choose your service? MARS bridges the gap between education and exercise, provides ROI for both operator and members and is ideal for everyone from members who don’t know how to use functional equipment to experienced trainers learning about the newest Escape products. The system reduces the confusion that can prohibit people from joining gyms – the ‘intimidation barriers’ that Paul Bedford talks about in our Escape Your Limits podcast. It also helps members exercise safely, getting the most benefit and reducing the chance of injury. Navigation is easy, so anyone can use it.
