Information touchscreens for high-tech gym

One of the largest operators of sports and health and fitness facilities in the UK, the Fitness Unlimited gym spaces have more than more than 18,000 members and 19,000 classes each year. The Ponds Forge club in Sheffield is also the site of the international diving centre.

The challenge

Ponds Forge is one of the busiest health and fitness venues in the UK. The gym underwent an extensive refurbishment and wanted to replace paper-based noticeboards with up-to-the-minute digital communication.

What we did

The award-winning new, multi-million pound gym accommodates state-of-the-art technology and training equipment, so it was clear that we needed to deliver a first-class tech product.


We created touchscreens that work in conjunction with the gym’s other digital screens, allowing members to access group exercise class descriptions and weekly timetables, as well as personal trainer profiles, with biography, photos, their specialisms and the ability to contact them. The screens also have the ability to announce when classes are cancelled or their location has changed - much slicker than using paper signs on noticeboards to announce changes.


The system content can be managed easily via a web-enabled CMS, allowing the operator to add new or edit information about classes and personal trainers. It is also compatible with the automatic timetable feed from the gym’s membership system, updating automatically without the need to maintain information in the touchscreen CMS.


The result is an easy-to-operate system that members find simple to navigate and helpful to explore the gym and its facilities.
