If you have visited the Downtown YMCA in the last few months, you may have noticed our new Technogym® equipment. And, if you have been into the cycle studio or upstairs in the last 10 days, you may have also taken note of brand new group cycle bikes and television in the cycle studio.  While the equipment itself is top-of-the line, it is actually the technology within the equipment that sets it apart from the experience you may have on other fitness pieces.

Your competitive spirit can kick in while you try to overtake your workout buddy on the bike next to you!  This immersive content enhances your ride and gives you personalized feedback specific to your goals.

Code word day tutorialThe Technogym cardio equipment comes with a fully interactive touch screen that is pre-loaded with apps and WiFi compatibility.  Members can access a YMCA “tile” on the main screen that allows them to stay up-to-date on all that is happening here at the Downtown YMCA, take surveys, and participate in fun “scavenger hunts” to win prizes.

We encourage you to come by and experience all the enhanced features we now offer!  Let us know if you have any questions as you explore, and stay active!
