Membr is thrilled to announce that we have been signed up by Life Fitness as their latest solutions partner, enabling them to further expand their offering to fitness clubs and facilities.

Members will have the ability to connect wirelessly and seamlessly into Life Fitness equipment from the Membr app, thereby gaining access to a host of features such as booking and paying for classes and PT sessions online, as well as being able to track and log their health stats to monitor progress.
