RFID solutions for fitness equipment

Not only does an RFID solution let you store your customers’ cardio, strength and training program on their member card so it is immediately available at the machines, you also allow them to operate the entry and locker system, pay at the club bar, open the gate to the parking garage...

But you benefit as well by reducing your administrative effort and eliminating sources of error.

Your benefits from an RFID solution for training equipment

Why write down the carefully devised training program on a piece of paper that the customer can lose, that will become unreadable over time and will just be confusing and inconvenient when the routine is changed?

It’s so much more convenient and hygienic to store the information on a chip card for the gym, in a wristband or in an app. The details are then transmitted wirelessly to the gym equipment via RFID. That makes fitness fun.

How you benefit from working with ELATEC


Eliminate annoying paper-based notes for customers. The information is always up to date. The transponder communicates with different readers according to your infrastructure.

Time savings

Your customers will appreciate access to the studio, check-in and locker access done in no time, and machines that are automatically ready at the individual settings.

Cost savings

Using an RFID solution saves you administrative effort and personnel costs associated with administration so you’ll be able to focus on providing fitness services for your customers.


Treadmill, strength machine, cross-trainer or step machine – almost all manufacturers use RFID. The reader and electronics are integrated into the machine and don’t detract from functionality or design. Other advantages: reduced development costs and streamlined production, logistics and maintenance.

You have questions. We have answers.

How do RFID readers work?

When you use an RFID reader, it produces an alternating magnetic field at a frequency of 125 / 134.2 kHz (low frequency) or 13.56 MHz (high frequency). This field supplies energy to one or more transponders (media) located in its range. At the same time, data is exchanged between the reader and transponder through this field.

What can I use RFID systems for?

There are many potential uses for RFID technologies. Do you need technology-based personal identification for employee ID, personal ID, passport? Not a problem! RFID is also a reliable solution for the identification of animals, contactless payments, time and attendance recording and physical access control such as doors, turnstiles, lockers, ski lifts. Other potential applications include product identification, product protection (e.g., theft prevention), goods tracking, lifecycle management, Internet of Things (or IoT) applications, fleet management and car or bike sharing.

How does RFID benefit me?

When you use RFID transponders, one of the benefits is they don’t need visual contact to be read or written. RFID gives you a comparatively wear-free technology. For instance, there are no contacts that deteriorate, either in the reader or the transponder. This eliminates scanning problems that can occur with contact-based credit cards or magnetic stripe (magstripe) cards. Unlike printed barcodes, you can also write information to many RFID tags. RFID is also capable of withstanding environmental conditions like wind, weather, UV radiation, soiling and chemicals. RFID provides a scalable degree of security (e.g., from simple read-only tags to high-security transponders tested by EAL/common criteria).
