Management Software and Services

Our Internet software has all the tools you'll need for success.

Aphelion's Internet Software is designed for one mission — to allow club managers to make better decisions through an integrated view of their club operations. Aphelion provides tools to gain new members and improve member retention, to monitor inventory and employee time, and to optimize facility use.

Aphelion's newest generation of Internet software provides comprehensive club management capabilities and adds unparalleled connectivity for your members. Complete with a member information center, join-on-line, guest pass, corporate Internet sales, and a unique loyalty and member rewards program, the software enhances member retention. The Internet software delivers all of the capabilities of the desktop software that Aphelion is known for but adds Web scheduling, corporate dashboard for off-site managers, surveys and exercise tracking. Aphelion provides comprehensive software that works right out of the box. No worries, just smiles! A variety of system configurations balances affordability with comprehensive, proven capabilities.

Of course, every fitness software company claims their software “does the most” and “is the best.” So whom do you believe? All we ask is for you to test our software demo. Why not call today? 800-324-9800.

A Better Way to Outsource Billing

Our new Managed Data Services (MDS) provides a new approach to outsource billing. Using our Internet software, we can help manage your billing accurately, efficiently and in real time. It combines the best of locally installed software, outsourced billing services, and skilled back office staff to augment your own, to provide the ultimate combination of billing services and software. With MDS you're in control, but the normally mundane tasks of billing and other “back office” operations are run by Aphelion experts remotely. Using our exclusive system, we work with the same data as you do — online. And you are spared overhead costs, training time and expense, and the inevitable turnover of your own staff. And with MDS you don't worry that the billing isn't going out because of vacations or illness. The MDS system is affordable since Aphelion staff can run the billing, decline processing and member follow-up for your club for less than you can hire your own staff. Since all funds settle directly into your account, float is reduced. And with discounts on EFT fees and merchant rates, it could actually cost less than you're spending now.

30-Minute Response Guarantee

Nothing is more frustrating than having your system down and the feeling of being stranded.

But if you ever need tech support (and you probably won't), you'll usually speak with a tech rep immediately. If not, we guarantee you'll receive a response within 30-minutes.

No other software company offers such a powerful guarantee.

Life Fitness' Products Offer Many Benefits

LCD family of entertainment solutions and new equipment offer multitude of benefits to facilities and users.

Life Fitness recently introduced a number of new products that offer benefits to facilities and users alike.

LCD Entertainment Family

Life Fitness' family of LCD entertainment solutions is ideal for fitness facilities wishing to provide users with cardiovascular machines equipped with personal entertainment. From a highly advanced Life Fitness integrated touch screen to a universal stand system for any brand of cardio equipment, Life Fitness' line of attractive LCD solutions provides the widest variety of entertainment options for cardio equipment that's new or already in use. Whatever the facilities' needs, Life Fitness has the LCD entertainment solution to help them attract and retain exercisers who value an enhanced workout experience and who want to differentiate themselves from other facilities.

The LCD entertainment family comprises an enhanced integrated LCD screen solution that's standard on Life Fitness e-model cardio products, two attachable LCD screen solutions for use with select new Life Fitness equipment, and a stand-based system that's compatible with previous-generation Life Fitness and non-Life Fitness cardio machines. Each offers TV-quality video on a large, 12.1-inch screen and many features that can be customized by the facility or individual user.

Ab Crunch Bench

Life Fitness' new Ab Crunch Bench is designed so users can perform abdominal crunches with unparalleled ease and effectiveness. With its patent-pending AbCam System, the Ab Crunch Bench allows exercisers to perform an effective, natural crunch movement that maximizes abdominal contraction. Simple to use, the Ab Crunch Bench doesn't require users to make any adjustments or perform additional steps to start exercising, and an integrated weight horn lets exercisers add resistance. The bench also incorporates aesthetically pleasing attributes from other Life Fitness strength products, including flat oval tubing and contoured cushions, as well as Life Fitness' renowned durability.

All New Matrix T3x Treadmill

Durability and best-in-class value — all wrapped into a sleek, contemporary package.

The all new Matrix MX-T3x is everything you want in a top-of-the-line treadmill, without the top-of-the-line price. From the 3.0 hp club-rated drive system to the Ultimate maintenance-free deck to the vibrant 7-inch blue backlit screen, this treadmill is loaded with features. The T3x sets a new standard in commercial cardio equipment. The robust 3.0 hp JID motor includes a five-year warranty.

Ultimate Hard-Wax

Deck Our proprietary Ultimate Hard-Wax Deck System uses wax with a melting point three times higher than a conventional waxed deck. Because our wax melting point is so much higher, the wax stays where it is needed and does not migrate away from the walking area. This leads to a significantly longer deck and belt life. The reduced friction also extends the life of other critical components because of the lower amp draw with a lower friction deck. Because the Hard Wax doesn't migrate, it's not necessary to reapply wax to this deck. It's truly a maintenance-free deck. The Ultimate deck is reversible, so after significant use when a new belt is required, you can extend deck life simply by flipping it over.

Contemporary Industrial Design

Like all Matrix products, design isn't an afterthought with the T3x. In the 21st century, products must be both functional and aesthetically appealing. Facilities around the world are realizing the importance of differentiating through design. Clubs benefit financially either through increased membership, premium rates, or both. By making great design affordable, Matrix Fitness is your best choice to achieve your facility's fiscal goals.

The new 108 CM VersaClimber now features a reduced step height of just 10 inches to effectively decrease the workload by 50 percent, to better replicate total-body stair stepping and to enable all level exercisers to reap the benefits of vertical training. This model allows for more upper-body motion with travel up to 27 inches for an increased range of motion and greater flexibility. The 108 CM VersaClimber boasts a new interactive voice module that simplifies getting started and provides valuable instructions and motivational feedback, such as, “Good job. You're almost to the top,” to ensure that exercisers maintain the appropriate intensity level to sustain their workouts and achieve results. Additional inspiration comes in the form of a variety of virtual challenges to select from: opponents, towers and famous mountain peaks — all depicted on a back-lit, bright console.

The all new VersaClimber 108 SM is designed to provide the most complete total-body, non-impact workout available. Features include a new interactive voice module that simplifies getting started and provides valuable instructions and motivational feedback. With a natural upward climb motion, the 108 SM is the ideal sport-specific vertical trainer. It was designed to increase and enhance an athlete's overall fitness stamina by providing a wider range of step height travel — for example a 2-inch to 20-inch step range with unlimited speed attributes. The new 108 SM was designed to allow for a complete full-body, non-impact workout while integrating aerobic and anaerobic interval training programs into a current cardio-training regiment.
