Xponential Fitness, a curator of boutique fitness brands, says it’s launching an upgraded studio experience through the use of Apple Watch technology across all eight of its brands, including Pure Barre, Club Pilates, CycleBar, YogaSix, StretchLab, Row House, AKT, and STRIDE.
This fully-integrated experience allows Xponential members and guests who utilize Apple Watch to view upcoming classes, check in to class, participate in the “Earn Your Watch” challenge, and track real-time performance data among other features, says Sarah Luna, president of Xponential Fitness.
Each Xponential brand’s app will integrate directly with Apple Watch allowing users to receive notifications for upcoming classes, moving off a class waitlist, class reminders, and celebration alerts for milestones met. Users will also enjoy contactless check-in and will also have the opportunity to earn back their Apple Watch value by participating in the “Earn Your Watch” challenge by taking classes in studio1.
What’s more, each brand’s classes will allow consumers to track and share their personal performance data for classes taken within the studio through the Apple Health app which can also contribute to their daily Activity Rings on Apple Watch. Performance data measured will include time active, calories burned, heart rate, and average BPM.
