Balance Health Club has developed an app in response to feedback from members who wanted information at their fingertips to help them choose classes, be notified of instructor changes and view workout videos.
Group Health and Fitness manager William Proctor said Balance was the first health club in Newcastle and the Hunter to develop a specialised app free for their members.
He said using the latest technology to make it easier for people to choose a lifestyle geared towards health and fitness was a prime motivator for Balance.
“Many people want to make great choices about their health and fitness, but in the hustle and bustle of work, kids and family commitments, people’s personal health and fitness goals are often prioritised down the list,” William said.
“This app will provide that little helping hand to encourage people to maintain a healthy lifestyle and stay on track with their personal goals.”
Celebrity chef and nutritionist Zoe Bingley-Pullin has partnered with Balance Health Club, compiling nutritional advice and recipes for people using the app, which also allows users to make a shopping list so they don’t forget the ingredients for their favourite recipes.
“The app offers nutritional advice, recipes and shopping lists but we also wanted members to easily take the online experience to the real world, which we’ve achieved with Zoe’s recipes and shopping lists for members to try at home,” William continued.
“The user experience is customised so members receive updates about specific interests and classes. One feature sure to be a hit is the timetable sync, which allows members to sync their calendar to Balance’s timetables. Members will then receive push notifications ensuring they don’t forget to attend the class. This feature also helps people make their health and fitness a priority.”
The app is free for all Balance Health Club members.
