Each participant should know how and why the exercises are performed and the possible consequences of a wrong version.

In Salzburg, the group vita club set a new club concept: a fully automated gym. From online registration through the cashless processing to control the showers and the drinks and snacks in the system, everything is digitally in the MYGYM club. The entire system is performed with just one employee. The customer can manage their data online or at the existing studio terminals, book appointments, etc. The digitization and the related outsourcing of many business processes such as member administration

In addition, the equipment management is much easier, possibly even with direct connection to the customer service of the manufacturer. The aim is to create a comfortable workout experience and increased customer loyalty as well as management and support services and economic benefits for the operator in all respects.
