|12/09/2016 14:43 My Xcite - Download the App NOW!|
Track your fitness progress, save your workouts and monitor your fitness goals! You can be active at home, at work, in the gym, in the pool, in the garden, or playing with the kid. With the ‘My Xcite’ app you can measure ALL of your daily activity! This new, free app records all your workouts at Xcite gyms, automatically updating with your Technogym Key system data (your own key with specific gym programme and result details), and you can add in other indoor and outdoor activities as you go, including housework and mowing the lawn!
Measured by ‘MOVES’ the scores are independent of body weight so they are a more effective way of comparing your activity levels to those of your friends. Via the app you can access your activity data, see your results and review your progress. My Xcite also links to Fitbit, Strava, Mapmyrun, Garmin, Myfitnesspal, Polar, Swimtag and more health apps allowing you to access all your lifestyle data in the one place, especially if you like to crunch the numbers!
To download My Xcite:
Download directly via your App Store on your Apple device.
My Xcite app is also available for Android on Google Play.

Xcite Swim is available at 6 venues across West Lothian, with 20 - 25 metre pools as well as Teaching Pools for young kids to learn to swim. Swimming is an excellent activity that can be shared with family and friends. Not only is it a brilliant way to tone up and burn calories, but can be used as a gentle, safe exercise for those starting out, recovering from injury or during pregnancy.
Thousands of kids learn to swim with Xcite Swim each year! Our Learn to Swim Programme has proved successful, with a range of lessons from Adult & Baby to Improvers. Adult classes are also available, so it’s never too late to learn!
