A requirements analysis with feasibility study for a design of a pervasive fitness centre designed specifically for its members

Supervised by Matthew J W Morgan; Moderated by Peter Burnap

This project would focus on the opportunities for Gym and Leisure centers to focus on its members. I would aim to design and create a requirements analysis for an environment where the connectivity of devices is embedded in such a way that the connectivity is unobtrusive and always available.

The project would provide interviews, surveys and various details from local Gyms and its members indicating what they feel is missing from their experience in the leisure centre and try to design and improve this in a pervasive manner.

It is understandable that there is a lot of technology already used within fitness centres however I do not feel that currently satisfies the customers needs to the level the current technology can actually provide. Introducing new ideas and technologies into an environment such as this will give incentive to new customers and encourage existing members to return more regularly.

I would hope this focus would allow me to design a gym and leisure center which would apply new technology ideas that businesses like this have not yet considered.
