Vancouver’s Gym Technik weighs in with BlackBerry App

Vancouver’s Gym Technik announced last week that it has partnered with Withings – the makers of the Internet Connected Body Scale.

Gym Technik is a fitness site that allows users to configure and optimize their workouts online, allowing them to use their Smartphones to track workouts while at the gym.

The Withings WiFi Body Scale can now update a Gym Technik member’s profile automatically by using its built-in WiFi connection. 

This partnership marks the first time a Blackberry user can gather information from their Withings Scale directly on a dedicated RIM Smartphone application, Gym Technik’s NextGen app.

Gym Technik’s NextGen Blackberry app allows its over 45,000 members to take their workouts and music to the gym in one device and was recently awarded Best Health/Fitness App in the 2009 CrackBerry Awards for their NextGen BlackBerry app.
