Innovation Impacting the Fitness Industry

At the HRSA 2018 (International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association) trade show in San Diego LG Electronics has answered lots of questions about the benefits a networked digital signage solution can offer a gym or fitness center.

One of the examples that LG Electronics has provided is that every day countless of members walk and run in a row of treadmills, staring at the TV in front of them. While TV shows might help alleviate boredom, what if the content was more relevant?

We are ready to share LG Electronics tips and benefits that digital signage solutions can offer a gym or fitness center.

What kind of content could be relevant?

Digital signage can provide up-to-date class descriptions, room scheduling, wayfinding, menus, announcements and more.  Adding instructional videos, live news feeds, sports scores and filtered social media posts can keep members engaged. And when the displays are used with a fitness center’s smartphone app and beacon technology, they can target alerts for class cancellations, upcoming events and other important updates.

Also you can promote services and gift coupons on the displays, which in turn can help generate sales. Further, its potential in compelling members to buy a protein shake, check out the pro shop sale or sign up for a new class is limitless.

Using content management to your advantage.

Creating, updating and managing content is quick and easy with LG Electronics webOS for Signage.

The web-based platform powers LG Electronics Smart Signage displays and can also host third-party applications. It features a selection of templates and enables remote management of each display via PC or mobile device. The displays’ embedded System-on-Chip (SoC) works with webOS, and also allows for much simpler installations and cost reduction by eliminating external media players and their mounting hardware.

How to get started.

LG Electronics is ready to upgrade any gym or fitness center with best-in-class digital signage solutions. There is a network of national installer partners that provide turnkey installations with LG Electronics TVs, monitors, video walls, touchscreens, wall mounts, content management, cabling and more, including debris removal.

Offer virtual classes anytime.

A popular feature in hotel fitness centers, digital signage can be used to teach classes. With a video wall and Fitness on Demand™ programs, hundreds of premium classes from the world’s most renowned programming and recognized content creators can be offered without a live trainer, and instead be controlled with the FOD™ app and touchscreen tablet.
