With over 2500 different exercises, Places Locker has something for everyone. It knows the equipment available at your preferred Places Leisure Centre and will tailor your workout to suit. 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!
Workout of the Week
If you want to vary your routine, ‘Workout of the Week’ could be what you need. Each week, you’ll find a recommended workout for you to try, taking the hassle out of mixing up your fitness programme.
With regular digital fitness challenges available, you can challenge yourself or compete with other Places Locker users! We try to vary the type of exercise involved so that you'll always find a challenge that suits you, whether that's running, cycling, classes or just the amount of activity you do.
Track the distance, pace and MOVEs of your walk, run or cycle with our GPS function. Select ‘Outdoor tracking activity’ on the home screen, choose your activity and you're all set! You can even add a playlist!
Pair apps and wearables
Places Locker lets you bring together your centre activities with all other activities to build MOVEs and get the full picture of your activity. Sync with other applications such as Apple Health, Strava, MapMyRun as well as working with popular wearables such as SWIMTAG, Fitbit and Garmin.
If a bit of healthy competition is your thing, you can compare your daily and weekly MOVEs against other people in your centre. But if that’s not for you, simply make your profile private in your settings.
View your results
All your activities are accessible in the Results tab, so you can see your progress over the weeks and months.

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 metabolic equivalents (METs). 1 MET is defined as 1kcal/kg/hour, which is roughly 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 - creating a level playing field.
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
