SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/13 -- Netpulse, the personalized media and data platform for active-lifestyle consumers, and MiGym, the leading club-branded mobile app provider, announced today that they have partnered to integrate the new NetpulseOne platform into MiGym's widely used mobile apps. The combined app positions NetpulseOne as the one solution clubs need to drive member engagement, motivation, and success anywhere anytime.

Making sense of the limitless technologies, networks, and mobile apps flooding the health and fitness market can be an overwhelming task. That is why Netpulse and MiGym integrated their in-club cardio, data tracking, group exercise calendaring functionality and additional mobile experiences to provide a single solution that brings the best of fitness technology together under the club's own brand. This innovative approach delivers immediate, far-reaching value, specific to each user's needs.

NetpulseOne helps clubs motivate members by enabling them to create fitness goals, join club-wide challenges, and recognize accomplishments. Members can create goals to burn calories, run a marathon in a month, or to simply workout 3 times a week. The Challenge Engine enables clubs to build community and create a little friendly competition. Once engaged with a goal or challenge, members use their club-branded app and website to track their progress, get support, and celebrate success.

To fuel the activity platform, NetpulseOne automatically tracks all of a member's workouts. For in-club activity, exercisers sign in on Netpulse-connected cardio equipment from 7 of the world's top fitness equipment manufacturers, track strength or group exercise workouts on the club-branded mobile app. For outdoor activities, NetpulseOne connects with top fitness apps and tracking devices like MapMyFitness so that every workout counts everywhere. Finally, NetpulseOne keeps users connected to their overall healthy lifestyle by partnering with MyFitnessPal to integrate fitness activity into their food and exercise diary, as well as Aetna's CarePass™ platform for integration of fitness activity into their health care profiles.

"Connected equipment, apps and tracking devices are shaping the future of fitness. By partnering with MiGym, we've made them all work together to create a better experience for exercisers and a single solution for clubs," said Bryan Arp, co-founder and CEO of Netpulse.

"Keeping members motivated today takes a 360-degree approach, connecting with members in and out of the club," noted George Monical, CEO of MiGym. "By integrating with NetpulseOne, we can offer that community building platform that will engage members and drive loyalty like never before."

To launch the platform, Netpulse and MiGym are partnering with Augie's Quest to run the inaugural Augie's Quest Cardio Challenge at IHRSA 2013. Every time attendees sign-in on equipment at participating booths, $3 will be donated to find a cure for ALS. In addition to raising funds and awareness for Augie's Quest at IHRSA, the goal is to demonstrate how clubs can run their own Augie's Quest challenges at home and raise money for Augie's Quest all year long.
