Anytime Coaching provides an online platform that enables PTs to share bespoke workouts and communicate with members via in-app messaging. It also enables members to set goals and track their daily steps. The service is designed to reduce the need for physical, in-person coaching and enables PTs to coach their clients even when they are unable to get to the gym. Marvin Burton, head of Product at Anytime Fitness and a former PT, says: “Anytime Coaching is an exciting addition to the digital revolution that’s sweeping the fitness industry. Even regular gym visitors are only spending five per cent of their week

Anytime Coaching is accessed via a dedicated app in the gym, so this provides a way for clubs and PTs to impact their member’s lives in the remaining 95 per cent.” “Anytime Coaching provides an affordable, accessible way

for members to receive tuition and get the guidance they need to achieve their goals.” fitness-kit.net KEYWORD

S

hapewatch, a 3D body visualisation firm, has teamed up with Kinetisense, manufacturer of a markerless human motion assessment system, to create ShapeKAMS, a dynamic movement assessment tool. Combining Kinetisense’s Advanced Movement Screen (KAMS) with Shapewatch’s body scanning solution, ShapeKAMS enables operators to offer visual accounts of biometrics, including body fat percentage, lean body mass and waist:hip ratio. Trainers can also use the system to assess functional movement, which enables users to track their body changes throughout their fitness journeys.

“I am confident that ShapeKAMS will serve as the ultimate differentiator for our trainers” Dr Ryan Comeau Dr Ryan Comeau, CEO of Kinetisense, says: “ShapeKAMS bridges the gap between static and dynamic biomechanical assessment, allowing trainers to incorporate data analytics to their assessment.”

The new system gives biometric readings “This system provides information over the course of training that shows changes in biometrics and functional movement. This allows for engagement with the client via a data-driven ‘compass’

that shows their progress. I’m confident that ShapeKAMS will serve as a differentiator for our trainers,” he adds. fitness-kit.net KEYWORD
