Kevin Geary: Strength & Conditioning Coach, Ulster Rugby, UK

Ulster Rugby weight room fitout - 10 GymAware Stations

We are excited to have just set up 10 lifting platforms with GymAware for the new gym facility at Ulster Rugby, UK. Here is a snapshot of our interview with their Strength and Conditioning coach Kevin Geary.

How have you found your initial setup?

We have found the full fit-out of a weight room with GymAware the key for providing athletes with an accurate performance monitoring tool. Our setup includes 10 lifting platforms, 10 GymAware PowerTools, 2 large screen TVs and 10 iPads. This setup maximises the Leaderboard feature.

The leaderboard function has been a great tool to motivate athletes through the live ranking system.
The comparable data, reliability and accuracy of GymAware means that the athlete analysis is faultless.

How have you used GymAware?

Each lifting platform has a dedicated PowerTool/GymAware system. We have been using GymAware for the last 6 months and the precise, consistent and accurate data that comes from each of the 10 platforms is faultless.

I enjoy the simplicity, accuracy of information and the ease of use with the iPad interface.

What do you like the most?

It has given the players a fresh focus to their weight sessions. They enjoy the live feedback from the TV monitors and the ability to pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses through the live data feedback.

The leaderboard has pumped the players! A fantastic tool which has given a new meaning to competition.

I would highly recommend the GymAware power tool to anyone that is interested in measuring performance in the weights room. It provides a motivational and competitive environment. Thank you team Kinetic!
