At first I was really hesitant to use it. I thought it was kind of silly.
Here is a short video that over views it.
It depends on the gym if they have Fitlynxx available or not but basically, you consult with a worker at the gym and they will either build you a list of workouts that either fit your needs or wants.
Every weight station has a little touch screen that you will use to log in. First time setup includes getting your range of motion, start weight, and machine positions if you happen to forget. The amount of sets and reps can be changed later by the worker.
Once the initial setup is completed, you just log in at a little kiosk and select your workout if you have more than one set up. Once you start your workout the kiosk will promt you to which machine is the first in your list. You don’t have to go in order, you can hop around to other machines say if one is already taken or you want to do it in your own order.
Each set and rep is recorded when you hit the top and bottom of your range of motion, you can either reach the minimum goal, or the max goal and it will prompt you with a sound when you hit it.
On the screen it shows you how many sets and reps are recorded as well as what weight you should be set to. Its recorded as you go so you can see your total amount of weight moved.
Once you are finished with your sets, if you reached the max goal, it will promt you if you want to increase weight in either 5 or 10 increments, from what I have seen its up to 20 lbs. If you drop weight it will promt a decrease. Once that is done, you can log out and head to the next machine.
Once you are finished you can logout in the same kiosk, when you do, it shows you how many exercises you completed and the total amount of weight moved total. At my gym, they publish a little leader board for the whole gym to see. They have break downs in terms of points eared, position in the Fitlynxx system, and weight in pounds moved for the month by male and female.
I move and average of 500,000 lbs a month so far.
At the end of the week I bump up weights by 5 lbs. First day is always the hardest but by the 3rd, its very comfortable so far.
I have not hit a major wall in terms of weight besides bench press, had to drop about 10 lbs but I am feeling confident that my strength and endurance has returned.
