LOS ANGELES, CA – October 17, 2019 — Spinning®, the creators of the indoor cycling category and the global leader in indoor cycling bikes, education and programs, and Spivi, an industry leader in interactive displays and performance tracking, have partnered to offer a performance leaderboard for the Spinning® program using the Spivi® platform.
A key component of the leaderboard is power-based training and metrics, driven by SPINPower®—the global leader for best-in-class power-based education and programming in the indoor cycling industry. Developed by the training team at Spinning and USA Cycling Elite Level Power Coach, Angie Sturtevant, SPINPower® provides riders with real-time measurements of individual effort for greater training efficiency and performance results.
SPINPower® allows gyms and cycling studios to enjoy the wealth of power-based knowledge, product development, and coaching. SPINPower® offers the most comprehensive certification and continuing education. It also advances instructors to the next level of indoor cycling certification, setting them apart from other fitness professionals.
The Spivi® platform collects data such as power, cadence, speed, distance, and heart rate from the sensors located inside the fitness facility. Then it combines that data with personal information stored on the cloud, such as age, weight, and performance history. Finally, it generates virtually unlimited visuals, including unique group simulation, leaderboard, videos, and more—all in real-time.
“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Spinning for the digital leaderboard,” said Shay Amir, founder and CEO at Spivi. “Spivi is a proven digital platform that helps fitness facilities increase members’ retention. Bringing SPINPower® in conjunction with fitness challenges and virtual worlds enables gyms to reward members for their fitness activity and keeps them engaged.”
