Nuffield Health selects Technogym to transform its gym experience

Nuffield Health, has selected Technogym equipment and digital technologies as its preferred equipment provider for its wellbeing business. This is part of Nuffield Health’s investment in anticipating and exceeding customer expectations.

Technogym – an internationally renowned company for fitness, wellness and rehabilitation equipment and official supplier to the last seven Olympic Games – is the only player in the market offering a full range of equipment connected to a complete digital ecosystem for lifestyle management which includes an open cloud-based platform, mobile apps for both operator and end-user, and training programmes. 

The long term agreement will see Technogym equipment and systems installed across Nuffield Health’s fitness and wellbeing estate.  Nuffield Health operates 111 fitness and wellbeing clubs and 31 hospitals across the UK. The replacement options include Technogym’s top connected equipment ranges - ARTIS, SKILL Line and the UNITY connected console - as well as the digital interaction platforms underpinned through the ‘my wellness cloud’. 

This will enable Nuffield Health to offer its members an innovative digital experience, from the initial health assessment, to the creation and tracking of a personalised training programme and the ability to provide coaching both on site and remotely.  Customers will be able to access their personal training programme and data anywhere and anytime, on the equipment and via mobile. 

At the same time, the Technogym Ecosystem provides Nuffield Health with the data and insights that can help it tailor programmes and advice for all its customers – from gym members through to physio and hospital patients. 

Steve Gray, CEO at Nuffield Health comments: “We’re delighted to be embarking on this transformation journey with Technogym, who we’ve worked with for a number of years. The digital ecosystem will be a game changer for our customers, enabling us to offer a truly connected health, fitness and wellbeing experience.”  

“This agreement with an innovative operator like Nuffield Health represents a concrete example of our Technogym 4.0 strategy which leverages our connected ecosystem to implement new business models for our partners and a completely new experience for consumers,” comments Nerio Alessandri, Technogym founder and CEO. 

Implementation of the new equipment will begin in the second quarter of 2018, with the aim of refurbing around 20 Nuffield Health fitness and wellbeing clubs by the end of the year. Over the next three years Technogym will aim to refurbish the vast majority of Nuffield Health’s 111 fitness and wellbeing clubs.
