MONROE, Conn. (WTNH)-- The growing trend of 'technology' driven workouts.
It is not your typical gym, there is one that is totally digital.
"There are apps, the Nike Fuel, fit bit bracelets, but that's telling you what you did. You still need to do the work, this is actually telling you what to do," said Jeff Pressman, Koko FitClub of Monroe.
Members of Koko Fitclub of Monroe come in and plug in a flash drive, loaded with personal information for a customized workout.
"With our technology, it measures the pace for you so you're doing it more effectively and more efficiently," said Pressman.
Thirty minutes of building muscle and cardio.
"It's a great workout. It's quick but everything is purposeful. I never feel like I'm wasting time," said Shannon Prange.
"I'm a technology adapter, pretty quickly. But more importantly, I love the fact I can look at a screen, having it set up my workouts," said Steve Orlick.
"This is showing me, my next exercise, shoulder press," said Pranger. "My pants fit a lot better. I see a measurable strength increase."
It's like playing a video game.
You have to stay focused, otherwise you get off pace and the color bar turns from green to yellow.
For Steve Orlick the computerized plan he says keeps him on the healthy track.
"My doctor says I have high blood pressure," said Orlick. "Since I've joined, I feel completely dedicated to working out. I've seen a difference in my energy with my kids, I have two small kids, they run me around pretty good and my attitude at work. I seem like I'm happy."
There's also a nutrition plan and progress can be tracked on a computer at home.
