Post ride, users will be able to access their performance data and results on their Group Cycle consoles as well as via the Group Cycle App available for download on their mobile devices to compare results on the go.
“We are very excited and honoured to be the first facility in America to offer the Technogym Group Cycling experience,” says Robin Scott, Athletic Director at The Sports Club at Four Seasons. “Our members and guests are raving about the superb ride, available performance data, high tech visuals and amazing sound quality – all combining to create a world class group cycling experience.”
The Sports Club, a 176,000 square foot (16,350 square metre) facility at Four Seasons Resort Dallas, recently underwent a USD 6 million renovation improving upon one of the most comprehensive fitness facilities in North Texas. In addition to renovations, the Club’s wellness and fitness programming is powered by Well & Being, the only guided, personalised and integrated spa and wellness experience offering the opportunity to explore a full array of healthy lifestyle options in a luxurious setting.
Key Features of Technogym Group Cycle Connect include:
- Control Console – The new self-powered Console is powered by the rider’s motion through an innovative battery-free system connected to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Its LCD display is fully enclosed within a splash-proof casing to keep moisture out, and is LED-backlit, ensuring high-contrast visibility to the user, even in dark gym environments. The console also provides a continuous heart rate reading for riders using a Bluetooth Smart heart rate chest strap.
- Accurate Data Tracking – Group Cycle Connect provides scientific tracking of the power output (watts) with a +/- 2 percent accuracy, enabling riders to track the most accurate fitness data available to them. This includes elapsed time, speed, calorie consumption, distance covered, maximum cadence and maximum power reached, and total MOVEs. Riders can easily log-into their personal profiles through the mywellness cloud to track performance and compare results over time.
- Easy Settings – Group Cycle Connect easy to use, patent pending On-The-Fly Settings enable four-way adjustments in ride with one simple touch providing optimal cycling positions for all riders. The flywheel resistance system is equipped with a magnetic resistance knob that displays intuitive graphics and provides tactile feedback every 45 degrees as riders make adjustments between the 20 resistance levels incredibly easy and precise. The selected resistance level is displayed on the Console. This can all be adjusted as the riders’ exercise on the bike so it doesn’t disrupt their ride.
- Natural Feeling – Group Cycle Connect provides the smoothest and most consistent ride replicating an outdoor road bike feel due to the reduced Q factor, frictionless poly v-belt and calibration free power readout. Group Cycle Connect is available in yellow and light grey each with a splash-proof frame casing.
