University of Stirling has selected Technogym to be their official supplier of fitness and
wellness solutions for their new world-class sports facility. Following an exceptional year in
2019, which saw Stirling add Sports University of the Year 2020 to their already long list of
accolades, the university are now busy preparing to open the doors to their next adventure, a
sector-leading £20m sports facility.
The new facility will feature three key areas; the main fitness facility, a strength and
conditioning suite and a performance gym. Alongside these gyms there will also be state-of
the-art studios, a three-court sports hall and an indoor Group Cycle studio.
To create the best student experience and provide a fully connected digital solution, Stirling
chose to partner with Technogym and adopt their future-proof mywellness ecosystem.
Working together they have transformed the student sporting experience and created an
environment where Olympic athletes and casual gym goers can train side by side.
The University of Stirling has an unrivalled reputation for sporting excellence and has a long
history of building outstanding success stories. The university is recognised as Scotland’s
University for Sporting Excellence, home of the National Swimming and Tennis Academies,
and most recently was awarded 2020’s Sports University of the Year by The Times and The
Sunday Times Good University Guide.
University of Stirling will be one of the UK’s first facilities to launch the Technogym Excite Live
line, ensuring that they are providing their students with the very latest in fitness technology.
Excite Live is a revolutionary range of fully connected cardio equipment that offers students
and athletes a new and personalised training experience tailored to their specific goals and
Thanks to an ever-increasing library of Technogym Sessions, which give members access to
immersive workouts led by Master Trainers and fitness celebrities from around the world,
members will stay motivated and inspired during even the toughest of workouts.
With the innovative Excite Live console students can access their own personal content at any
time during their workout. Whether they want to connect with friends on social media, catch
up with their latest Netflix series or simply browse the internet and YouTube, the Excite Live
console adapts to suit each user’s needs seamlessly.
Executive Director of Sport, Cathy Gallagher, commented “Having undergone a fantastic
redevelopment of the sports facilities, creating a complex that enhances the world-class
student experience at Stirling, we are delighted to feature Technogym’s most advanced
training experience with the Excite Live range. We wanted to provide an innovative, state-of
the-art gym and by partnering with Technogym, the possibilities the redevelopment is going
to bring in 2020 and beyond is an incredibly exciting prospect”.
Stirling have really embraced Technogym Formats by providing more group training options
for students. Skillrow Class offers members the chance to row together like a real crew, take
part in competitions and receive live feedback on their individual performance. In addition,
Stirling will also offer Skillbike Class which challenges members to friendly competitions with
like-minded bike lovers using the industry-leading Skillbike, the only indoor bike with real gear shift and real-time biofeedback.
