Personalised Settings in the Gym

Just the way you like it.

Imagine this scenario :
You swipe your card on the way into the gym, and various things are configured to the way you like them. The music's the type you like, and only for you (basic music players & headphones are freely available at the main desk). The air temperature in the area is roughly what you like. As is the water temperature & pressure when you're having a shower after your workout.

All of these things - and a whole lot more - are automatically set according to your preferences, and can easily be overridden if you're seeking something different that day. Same workout, with a much more personalised feeling.

What do you think - is this something you'd like; and in the gym only, or in other areas - around your own home perhaps?

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.
And if you've already got one - or are looking for another type of device - swing by the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.
