Fit-Key is an exercise documentation and communication technology that stores workout programs and records results. This interactive system lets the user set the time and function of the machine, as well as track workout results and progress. Workout programs are stored on the key so the member doesn't have to remember how to set up each machine. When the key is inserted into a machine it is automatically set for time, program and resistance level. Results of each workout are recorded on the key. At the end of the workout, when the key is downloaded, reports can be printed or e-mailed. There are six pre-programmed workouts, which may be customized or modified. The Fit-Key system is easy to set up and use, and a Fit-Key receptacle is embedded into each piece of SCIFIT equipment. The system makes workouts enjoyable and rewarding for the member and profitable for the club. Contact: SCIFIT, 5151 S. 110th E. Ave., Tulsa, OK 74146; phone: 800-278-3933;
