Gantner’s smart card technology – Helping build the foundation of networked fitness

Members using Gantner's NFC device can access their workout data, gain entry through turnstiles and lock and unlock lockers

Technology in today’s health clubs is being increasingly geared towards creating an ultra-convenient, intelligent workout experience, where members need only swipe a card or key to access their personalised exercise data.

Gantner’s patented smart card technology takes this usability to a whole new level, creating a valuable link between a club’s networked fitness operations and its other key facilities, such as lockers, point of sales, as well as its access control system.

Each member simply requires one single smart card or wristband for their entire visit. Using Gantner’s NFC (near field communication) devices, they can gain swift entry through the turnstiles, lock and unlock specified changing room lockers, instantly access their workout data on the gym floor, and pay for refreshments in the café or at a vending machine on a pre-pay or debit basis.

The NFC device ensures members enjoy the most convenient club experience possible, while operators benefit from secondary income and essential member and management data that’s delivered to them via a fully networked system.

Designed to work with all networked fitness technologies – such as Technogym’s Wellness system or Precor’s Preva systems – Gantner products provide the missing link between the networked fitness technology and the facility.

Working with leisure clients in over 60 countries, Gantner supports fitness clubs and chains all over the world, providing them with all-in-one access, payment and locking solutions. Beef up your bottom line with Gantner’s complete NFC solution across your entire club.
