C2K Fitness and Aquatic Centre is the first health club in Sydney’s Hills District embracing a revolutionary concept in the world of fitness and wellness, by introducing a new “Connected Wellness Experience” to their local community. The concept is powered by Technogym’s ARTIS® equipment and the mywellness® cloud technology.

“Mywellness will allow a ground-breaking personalised experience for our club members enabling them to access their training programs, data track record and personal content and apps on the Technogym equipment or anywhere in the world, thanks to the mywellness mobile app and web portal,” says Carlos Garcia, Manager of Health, Fitness and Sport at C2K.

Alongside the launch of the Connected Wellness Experience concept, C2K Fitness and Aquatic Centre will be offering a complete line of high-tech exercise equipment to the Hills’ local community, thanks to Technogym’s ARTIS range.

Made in Italy, Technogym’s ARTIS is the first collection of 30 products for cardio, strength and functional training, which ensures quality design, biomechanical engineering, interactive technology and eco-sustainability.

“We are very proud to partner with C2K at Castle Hill RSL in providing the Hills Shire community with the best in fitness technology and end-user experience. We trust the new Connected Wellness concept will have a great impact on the thousands of members already utilising the facility, making their training experience more enjoyable and personal, and positively incentivise many others to adopt a healthier lifestyle,” says Claudio Bertozzi, Managing Director of Technogym Australia.

The state-of-the-art facility also offers a fully connected Group Cycling Studio and highperformance training area featuring the brand new SKILLMILL non-motorised treadmills and SKILLROW connected rowers.

The $1 million refurbishment of the existing club will be finalised in January 2018.

More on ARTIS exclusive features:

The six units making up the ARTIS Cardio Collection range from traditional to innovative selfadaptive total body movements: Vario, Recline, Run, Bike, Synchro and Climb.

Seamless design: Through clean, minimal lines and reduced structural size, ARTIS equipment adds a unique touch of elegance to the facility setting. With unique seamless design and inspiring frameless geometry, it helps to capture the senses and allows members to move naturally and feel at ease in a quiet, non-intimidating environment. ARTIS shapes inspire a new gym layout concept in which spaces are defined by combining equipment with furnishings to create training islands of different sizes – thus evoking a sensation of confidence and freedom.

Design patent: ARTIS equipment is patent pending by virtue of its distinctive aesthetic features. ARTIS won the Red Dot Design Award in 2014 along with other international design honours.

Connectivity: ARTIS Cardio interface options provide you with connectivity options that are beneficial for your business and help to fully integrate and personalise your member’s training experience through the mywellness cloud. All interfaces feature Wi-Fi and LAN connections, Bluetooth, NFC (RFID) and QR code technologies, as well as USB and iPod/iPhone connectivity. On ARTIS Strength, the 7-inch display provides clear visual feedback whilst training, including a final score (a 0-100 mark, also converted into MOVEs) at the end of each workout that provides further motivation for users to improve.

The best interface for everyone: UNITY™ is a tablet-like interface based on the latest Android platform that enables a fully web-connected personal experience. UNITY can keep track of your preferred personal entertainment options such as TV and radio channels as well as the most useful training features.

A host of apps via the mywellness® cloud open platform: UNITY™ is connected to the mywellness® cloud – Technogym’s open platform where operators can access a complete set of professional apps to manage their member’s lifestyle inside and outside the gym. The Technogym app store offers ready-made applications created by Android developers and certified by Technogym to design a truly unique user experience.

Optimal view thanks to certified display position: ARTIS is the first and only line of cardio equipment to have implemented the results of an in-depth scientific analysis regarding user interface ergonomics (“Development of a structured protocol to determine multimedia screen position on CV equipment” published by the International Journal of Sports Science and Engineering).

Fast Track Control™ with visual set up: Simple and easy to use, the Fast Track Control™ levers allow members to select speed/incline without interfering with the rhythm of their workout. Swift Tiptronic regulation on ARTIS Run makes for intuitive adjustment at different speed intensities for on-the-fly interval training.

All-inclusive ergonomic dashboard: The large ergonomic dashboard is tailored to user needs, providing easy-to-reach storage slots for drink bottles and personal effects as well as a USB port and plug-in points for personal devices such as an MP3 player, iPhone/iPod, or earphones.

Direct drive (patent pending): A groundbreaking feature never seen before on strength equipment. A rigid shaft transmits weight stack resistance directly to the levers, delivering an exceptionally fluid feeling to the user. The Direct Drive system not only places ARTIS a step ahead of the pack in workout quality, but the reduction of pulleys and stress on the cables also ensures longer equipment life and reduces maintenance costs.

Optimal grip: The ergonomic design of the handgrips, shaped around the geometry of the user’s hands, evenly distributes the load during push and pull movements. Surface finishing improves the grip and the notches on the grip act as a tactile and visual guide to achieving symmetrical hand positioning.

Bodyprint system (patented): Hand-stitched in Italy, all paddings of the anatomically shaped seat and two-piece backrest are made of special high-density foam that adapts anatomically to the shape of each body. It provides maximum comfort and a beneficial stabilizing effect during exercise.

Visual set up: All machine settings including buttons, levers, pins and the patent pending “Visual Flag” markers, are bright yellow and easily recognised – so that even inexperienced members will be able to program the machines on their own.

Sustainability/Reduced energy consumption: The innovative brushless motor technology on ARTIS Run, combined with low friction materials used on the deck and the belt, reduces energy consumption by 30% compared to Excite®+ Run Now, the previous best-in-class treadmill on the market.

Powered by human energy: All the energy required to power the interface comes directly from the kinetic energy of the user. No additional wiring is required to transform the strength training area into an interactive experience for club members.
