Fairfax County RECenters have added FitLinxx, a multi-site computerized fitness network system. FitLinxx is a virtual training partner that will guide you through your workouts. FitLinxx also records what you do, making it possible for the fitness director at your neighborhood RECenter to review and evaluate your progress towards your personal fitness goals.

An appointment with your RECenter fitness director is the first step. Once we help you develop your customized exercise program - determined by your current fitness level and your fitness goals for the future - we program that information into FitLinxx. On your next visit, you simply sign in with your personal identification number (PIN) at the user-friendly touch screen of the FitLinxx kiosk. This check-in sets up the machines for your workout that day. You enter your pin number at each weight machine as you make the circuit, and FitLinxx tells you what to do in terms of weights, repetitions, sets and range of motion.

As you proceed, the FitLinxx Training Partner attached to each piece of equipment in the exercise circuit, records and logs a record of your efforts.

FitLinxx OnlineYou can get help at home from FitLinxx, too., powered by FitLinxx, the web’s premiere exercise and fitness homepage, has the answer to just about any exercise question—from how to improve a golf swing to a rehabilitation regimen for an injured knee.

Through FitLinxx, you can also pose questions directly to the fitness director at your RECenter at any time and get expert advice tailored to you and you alone. In addition, the fitness directors regularly review the progress of their FitLinxx partners, and if they see that you've reached a plateau, they will take the initiative and suggest a change in regimen to get you advancing again.

FitLinxx also lets you log in the cardiovascular workouts you do away from the RECenter. Plus, once you have been set up for multi-site usage (which requires an appointment with the fitness directors at the other RECenters that you want to use) you can access your virtual trainer from any RECenter, a convenient option if you work out at one center on weekends because it’s close to home and another on weekdays because it’s on your route to and from the office.

Here's another huge plus—FitLinxx comes free of charge with the purchase of a RECenter pass.

Customers attest to the power of FitLinxx

"I have noticed a huge improvement in my workouts and in my overall physique. FitLinxx is really great—it's like having your own personal trainer there to keep track for you and push you on."
Edgar, Wakefield RECenter

"I've been weight training for about eight years and using FitLinxx for a few months. I feel using FitLinxx is a much more efficient workout. I can't rush through my routine if I'm in a hurry, no chance of losing count or skipping a piece of equipment. Seeing my totals spurs me on! And Rob Strayer (Mt. Vernon's Fitness Director) is a great trainer; he's knowledgeable, patient with everyone and pleasant."
Nettie, Mt. Vernon RECenter

"FitLinxx lets me target specific muscles. This has already helped me a great deal in alleviating pain in my upper back between the shoulder blades. I feel as if I have more energy now, also."
Mike, Oak Marr RECenter

"Early last February, I had total knee replacement surgery. After four weeks of housebound recovery, I met with fitness director, Carmen Fermin. In a very professional manner, she took note of my past activities, medical history and desired mobility for the future. She then proceeded to explain and instruct me in a fitness program utilizing Providence RECenter's physical fitness equipment via FitLinxx. I am now nine months into this fitness regimen, and I feel that my rehabilitation has been enhanced significantly."
John, Providence RECenter

"I think the FitLinxx is a great program. I feel that I am getting much more from my workouts. I like the way the trainers can check in the computer to see how my progress is going and then be able to make adjustments to help me. Rate it 10+"
Theodore, Lee District RECenter

"FitLinxx has been great for me. Since the first of the year I have lost 20 pounds, three inches from my waist and I feel great. FitLinxx has a way of bringing you back to the gym for more. Try it, you'll like it, your body will love it."
Charles, Lee District RECenter

"Now I don't have to wonder if I am doing my exercises correctly. The initial set-up with fitness director Jean Salcedo gave me specifics as to what to use and how to properly use those machines. Then the program remembers and I don't have to!"
Torie, Spring Hill RECenter

"FitLinxx brought me back from open open-heart surgery. My strength and ATTITUDE are much better."
Dennis, South Run RECenter
