GymAware is a small, portable, and accurate linear encoder which attaches to free weights bars and weight stack machines for measuring Power output. It combines the mobility of an iPad hand-held device to record data with the power of the Internet. GymAware data can be securely accessed online anywhere, any time.
The GymAware system assesses performance in the gym. Results are then used as key indicators of the overall condition of an athlete.
• Motivate athletes with instant results
• Compare athletes and team results over time
• Benchmark with strength and power profiles
• Ensure recovery by measuring the return of power
• Recognise the onset of fatigue, overreaching and illness
• Assess and demonstrate the effectiveness of different training programmes
• Sets up in less than a minute
• Measures dozens of parameters including acceleration, power, velocity, displacement, force and work done
One of the unique features of GymAware that other systems do not include is an angle sensor in the linear encoder. The purpose of this is to correct errors on lifts that contain a relatively small horizontal component such as Powercleans, etc. If the angle component changes greatly within a set, the data is flagged as having a large change in angle which could indicate poor protocol and large errors in measurement.
The GymAware App is free to download from the iTunes store and allows users to:
• Collect and review results across generic lift types
• Basic export to CSV
• GymAware Lite can be used without internet connection
• The most basic mode providing realtime feedback as no results are saved
• This mode is the default (when not connected to the Cloud)
• Constantly in data collection mode
• Targets and ranges are able to be set
Contains a simulator mode which allows those without a GymAware Powertool ability
to access all the features available to a GymAware Cloud user and experience the full
features of the GymAware App with 3 demo athletes.
The GymAware Hardware includes:
• GymAware Powertool sensor
• USB cable and charger
• Soft carry case
• Quick start user guide
Velocity Based Training
Use velocity to determine load, optimize and individualise your athletes strength training. remove the guesswork; set target zones based on training goals (Strength, Power or Speed). Use big screen TV’s to display team summaries on the Velocity and Target Zone boards.
Power and Strength Analysis
Power is the key factor for producing game winning performances. Measure your athletes efforts in the weights room, benchmark and track performance with inbuilt protocols. Power drives the fastest sprints and breaks the hardest tackles; by training for Power you are training to win.
Monitor limb asymmetries and differences due to injury or imbalance. Compare pre and post results over time. Be assured the athlete is ready to return to competition.
Power output during a jump is a key indicator of athletic ability. Evaluate Jump Height, Squat Depth, Power and Velocity. Easily monitor fatigue with long term tracking reports.
Yearly subscription option for teams which gives full access to inbuilt reporting functions, training boards, leader-boards and on-line analysis with a secure login via GymAware.com.
Use GymAware to predict a 1RM without the need to go to failure. The report accurately calculates a 1RM for core exercises such as Squat, Dead-lift and Bench Press.
Motivate your athletes to perform at their best by providing instant feedback in the weight room. Display the Leader-board on a big screen to create a competitive environment and real intent to lift.
The unrivalled iPad App provides rep by rep feedback on key metrics. Athletes are challenged on each and every rep. Competition has never been greater.
Use the iPad to record and replay video on lift technique. Give feedback whilst recording metrics such as velocity, power, distance and bar path. Replay and share the video instantly via your favourite social media platform.
“In the highly competitive world of elite sport, the Gymaware Power Testing System is a vital tool for giving sports professionals within the EIS network the information we need. The interface to iPhone and iPad makes it simple, quick and highly portable- EIS have found it perfect for quick tests and travelling teams.”
Director of Performance Solutions, English Institute of Sport.
“I constantly use objective information from GymAware to track performance, training stimulus and to create competition. The system is easy to use, reliable and effective.”
