Smart Control Automation System for Training and Fitness Gyms
Imagine a gym that's smart enough to keep up with the trainers that work there.
James Shapiro (Audio Video Intelligence) - "Evolution Sports Performance is a private training facility that's made for groups. They have a yoga room, they have a large turf facility, they have an outdoor turf facility. The owner of Evolution came to me and said, 'we need a special system.'"
James Shapiro (Audio Video Intelligence) - "Each one of these instructors want to be able to come in and use their iPod, they want to be able to use Pandora stream. They all teach different ways and different volume levels of music but they all teach with music. Most training facilities have a system per room and what ends up happening is the business owner has to buy eight different systems. With this facility, we were able to do one system with eight different streams and eight different controls but it's all based on a Control4 platform. So it works out great. We can control the volume. We can control the source in each room. We can control the video separately. They can also come in and control the lighting. The owner can control the temperature remotely. Anybody who has an iPhone or iPad that is application based can go over to the Control4 touch screen and actually turn on what they want to be able to use. The trainers all love the system."
Craig Belanger (Head Sports Performance Coach) - "It's been unbelievable. It's been phenomenal. The athletes very in age so based on that too we have at the ability of changing up the music too. I'm not a huge tech guy myself and it's been very very easy to learn and teach other coaches and staff members how to pick up on and switch the different rooms... switch to different music and stuff. It's been wonderful."
Patty Bangs (Adult Fitness Coordinator) - I love it and it sounds great. I can just hit a button and it streams music from upstairs down in here. I don't have to pick up my iPod, come back down, plug it back in... it's already done for me. I love it. It's just... I don't have to worry about my music and that's huge when you're an instructor because you're worried that the system at the gym has speakers that aren't going to be loud enough or, it's going to be broken that day. Never ever ever ever do I have to worry about that here.
