YMCA Plymouth has announced a new collaboration with Rugged Interactive , a small Cornish technology company that specialises in motivational fitness equipment, including the new CardioWall®, an interactive speed, stamina and reaction trainer.  

They’ve been hailed “a brilliant investment”, by Plymouth Fitness manager Neil Talbot. 

Commenting on the walls ability to engage those with special needs, Deputy CEO Mark Rowles says “This piece of equipment means that we can get more young people to feel that sport is for them and not just for people who are able-bodied.”

YMCA Plymouth installed a pair of the CardioWalls in their gym’s new functional training suite in  2013, and the walls have proved a huge success, helping to increase footfall in the gym by over 120% in just six months.  

The CardioWalls are designed to be mentally stimulating, making exercise inclusive, more enjoyable and more accessible to all gym goers.  They can be used for anything from simple warm-ups to full-body functional fitness programmes, by young, old, fit and disabled alike.  Exercisers have a variety of game programmes to choose from, each requiring lights to be hit with hands, soft weights, balls or other accessories to provide a stimulating, enjoyable workout.   The benefits include improved motivation and mental, alertness, reaction, time,hand-eye coordination, balance and stamina.
