Manage Gym Workouts Tab

ManageGymWorkouts.jpg

The Manage Gym Workouts tab provides the same basic functionality as the My Workouts Tab; the main difference is that Gym Workouts are workouts that are visible to all members and staff* (wheras My Workouts are personal workouts that are only visible to the logged-in staff member and any other gym members they have sent it to).

*All Gym Workouts are visible to staff and members alike unless you specifically hide them.

You can use any of the filters visible in the screenshot to quickly locate workouts. When you find the workout you want, you can select any of the options shown in the cog menu to the right of each one:

  • View Workout - allows you to view the exercises and sets/reps etc contained in the workout.

  • Duplicate Gym Workout - creates an exact copy of the workout with the same name, ready for renaming or editing.

  • Edit Gym Workout - allows you to edit, reorder, or remove any of the exercises in the workout.

  • Download to My Workouts - creates an exact copy of the workout and places it in the My Workouts Tab.

  • Remove Workout - permanently removes the workout.

There is also a checkbox to the left of each workout; if you select one or more workouts using the checkboxes, the cog menu at the top of the list will light up, allowing you to change workout visibility:

Note

There are two different types of Gym Workout - a Group-level Workout, and a Gym-level Workout. A Group in this context is literally a group of gyms that share a parent company, so if you create a Group Workout, the resulting workout will be visible to all other gyms within that group. If you create a gym-level workout instead, the workout will only be visible at your gym, even if you are part of a bigger group.

Note

Options to create group-level workouts only appear if 1) Your gym is part of a bigger group, and 2) You have suitable permission to administer group workouts in your organisation.

Create A New Workout

A Workout is an ordered group of exercises taken from the large exercise library built into the software (there are several hundred exercises but you can easily add more if required!)

Designing a new workout involves providing some basic workout details, and then choosing any number of appropriate exercises from the exercise library, along with any relevant information - sets, reps, weight, etc.

  1. screencapture-admin-membr-admin-training-plans-create.png

    In Step 1, the basic workout details are entered. The first two items are the workout name, and the type of goal the workout is designed to help users achieve (this coincides with the four basic goal types that members can define in the mobile app - Get Fit, Get Healthy, Get Slim or Get Strong). Other fields define the suitability of the workout for youths, adults or older adults, and gender. There is also space to add notes to help or advise exercisers about the workout.

  2. AddWorkout_2.jpg

    The next screen allows you to add individual exercises that you want to include in your workout; the full list of available exercises is listed down the left-hand side of the screen, and you simply click on them to add them to your plan.

    To help you locate specific exercises, you can use the search box above the exercise list to search for a fragment of the exercise name. Alternatively, you can use any of the three filter types separately or in combination to narrow down the list. To activate a filter, click on it and choose from the available types - you can pick several at once, e.g. arms and shoulders (to close the filter list, click the filter name again):

    You can combine filters too, so you might choose arms as the body part, and cable machine as the equipment for example.

    Once you select an exercise, you are given a video preview of the exercise being performed to act as a visual confirmation. This video can also be seen by exercisers, and serves as a great reminder of how to perform the exercise correctly! If it is the exercise you intended, you can add any number of sets, reps, duration, etc. as appropriate:

    Keep adding exercises until the workout is fully defined. Note that if you move your cursor over an exercise that has been added to the workout list, small arrows appear to the left side of the exercise. You can drag any exercises to reorder them (click and hold on the small squares), push them up or down by a single slot (the single arrows), or push them straight to the start or end of the workout (the top and bottom arrows):

    Click Save to finish creating (or editing) the workout and return to the workouts list. The workout is technically complete now, but depending on the type of workout you are creating (e.g. My Workouts), there may also be a button labeled Save and Next - this is to allow the workout you just created to be sent directly to a member or members. If you select this option, there will also be a step 3 and 4, below:

  3. sendtomembers.jpg

    In the Select Members step, you are given a list of all members assigned to the logged-in member of staff. To send the current plan to any of these members, enable the toggle to the left of their names and click Next when you are done (or use the 'send to all members' button at the bottom of the screen).

  4. confirmation.jpg

    In the final step, you are given a reminder of the plan name and the list of members you want to send it to - click tabs 1,2 or 3 at the top of the window in order to make changes to earlier steps, such as the plan itself or the recipient choice. When you are satisfied click Send and the process is complete!
