Get active and move more
Let's take a look in your Places Locker.
Places Locker app is your go-to fitness partner!
It tracks your all activity, in the centre and out, as well as offering new workouts, digital challenges and quick access to bookings. Plus, you can pair it with a range of different apps and ‘wearables’ so you can see just how active you are.
Places Locker is available for Apple (iOS) and Android devices. Simply visit the App Store for Apple devices and Google Play for Android and search for ‘Places Locker’.
Book your classes quickly and easily on the go through Places Locker! Our booking system has recently had an upgrade, which is now available in Places Locker. It’s easier to use, and we’ve made our booking rules a little friendlier as well as introducing some new features you’ve asked for.
For more information on our booking system you may want to visit our Booking FAQ.
Workout of the week
Are you looking for something new, a way of varying your routine? Then ‘Workout of the week’ could be right for you. Each week, you’ll find a recommended workout for you to try, taking the hassle out of mixing up your fitness programme. Why not give it a go?
With regular fitness challenges available, you can compete with other Places Locker users! Some are just for fun, but keep an eye out, as we occasionally offer prizes.
Extensive exercise library
With over 2500 different exercises, Places Locker knows the equipment available at your preferred Places Leisure Centre and will tailor your workout to suit.
Digital coaching via QR codes
When using Technogym equipment in your gym, simply scan the QR code for more info on technique and suggested workouts.
Rate your workout
How was that workout, how did it feel? Rate it and use your scores to find patterns in your progress and results. Smashing Monday evenings, but always finding Wednesday mornings hard work? Change your routine to suit. Loving the Friday cardio but bored of the Saturday programme? You know what to do!
You can now track your walk, jog or cycle with our new GPS function. Select ‘Outdoor tracking activity’, select your activity and select ‘Go’. Track your distance, pace and MOVEs.
Pair apps and wearables
Bring together your centre activities with your outdoor activities to build MOVEs. Places Locker will synchronise with other applications such as Apple Health, Strava, MapMyRun as well as working with popular wearables such as SWIMTAG, Fitbit and Garmin.
Track your performance on leader boards
If a bit of healthy competition is your thing, you can compare how your daily and weekly MOVEs against others people in your centre. But if that’s not for you, simply make your profile private in your settings.
Coming soon! Automatically logging MOVEs when you’ve attended a class
We're working on an update that will mean no more manually logging MOVEs for classes - you'll just attend and the system will add your MOVEs.
A word about Moves!
MOVEs are a measure of your daily physical activity. Scientifically, MOVEs are a calculation of activity duration and intensity based on METs. 1 MET is equivalent to resting so the more active you are the more the MOVEs you earn.
Unlike the number of calories burned, MOVE scores are independent of body weight, gender or age; so they are a more effective way of comparing your activity levels to those of your friends.
To be active you should aim for 750 MOVEs per day. As a guide to daily activity:
- LOW ACTIVE: 0-499 MOVEs
- MODERATELY ACTIVE: 500-749 MOVEs
- ACTIVE: 750-999 MOVEs
- VERY ACTIVE: OVER 1000 MOVEs
