Ulster Rugby

In 2014 Ulster Rugby built a new Strength and Conditioning when they redeveloped the Kingspan Stadium at Ravenhill. Kevin Geary- Ulster’s Strength & Conditioning Coach was keen to monitor his players on the 10 lifting platforms they installed in the new facility- after looking at all the Power monitoring systems available globally Kevin selected Gymaware and was fortunate enough to have one unit per lifting station, therefore, required 10 units. The data is collected on iPads through the Cloud software that can be instantly synced to the Club’s Cloud database. The Club also installed two large TV screens to allow them to project the data live to players while they were training and in particular the Leaderboard function in the software which displays a live Leaderboard for that session.

The Gymaware Power Monitoring System is being used by a number of Rugby teams including: Leinster, Connacht, Irish Rugby, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Scottish Rugby, Northampton Saints, Harlequins, Bath, Worcester, Newcastle Falcons, Bristol Rugby, England Rugby, England 7s, Cardiff Blues, Scarlets, Ospreys, Newport Gwent Dragons and Welsh Rugby.

“The Leaderboard function has been a great tool to motivate athletes through the live ranking system. It has given the players a fresh focus to their weight sessions. They enjoy the live feedback from the TV monitors and the ability to pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses through the live data feedback.The leaderboard has pumped the players! A fantastic tool which has given a new meaning to competition. The comparable data, reliability and accuracy of Gymaware means that the athlete analysis is faultless. We have been using Gymaware for the last 2 years and the precise, consistent and accurate data that comes from each of the 10 platforms is faultless. I enjoy the simplicity, accuracy of information and the ease of use with the iPad interface.”
