Getting to know eGym and how it works

We have a new fitness tool at the YMCA that will take the guesswork out of strength training for you. eGym combines state-of-the-art technology that connects you to electronic equipment that adjusts to you while helping you keep a routine, and making workouts fun.

eGym currently be found at the Schottland Family BranchWestside Family YMCA, and Eastside Family YMCA.

Sign up for a Wellness Consultation to get started with eGym.

eGym is a FREE member benefit for all YMCA members, but if you would like to work through the eGym circuit with a trainer we also offer eGym Premium.

How It Works

First, you will need to schedule a Wellness Consultation.

During your Wellness Consultation an eGym coach will give you your free wristband and walk you though a strength assessment to find your optimal resistance setting. Your coach will also set the machine to your proper range of motion. After this initial time through with a coach you are good to go.

Next time you show up, tap your wristband on the marked area, and machines will automatically set the weight level and range of motion for you.

The smart equipment will adapt and progress you through a workout with an interactive screen. And all of your workouts are logged in an app without any work needed.

Additional features and work with an eGym coach are available through eGym Premium.

Features of eGym

The interactive video screen on every machine guides you to move at the right pace with the right form. eGym can help you get a complete workout every time, without worrying about counting reps or keeping a workout journal.

The machines automatically track your workout and send it to your app. To get started on the app download the YMCA of Greater Rochester’s New App and set your home branch to one with eGym. Then you will see an eGym icon that will take you to all of your eGym information.

The eGym circuit takes the guesswork out of your workout routine. Everything is already set for you when you arrive at the Wellness Center.

Your progress is easily tracked, so that you can see in real time how you have improve. There are even options to turn your workouts into a friendly competition with your workout partners by winning points for working out.

The app also shows if your muscle groups are imbalanced, and gives you an estimated biological age based on your strength.
