Garmin® announces integration with GOLD’S AMP™, the music-driven digital personal training app by Gold’s Gym

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced an integration with the GOLD’S AMP™ music-driven
digital personal training app by Gold’s Gym to display heart rate in
real-time with compatible Garmin devices1, improving the
effectiveness of user workouts.

As the world’s trusted fitness authority, Gold’s Gym introduced the GOLD’S
AMPaudio coaching and music app in 2017 to Gold’s Gym
members and non-members alike. The GOLD’S AMP™ app layers
innovative workouts from expert Gold’s Gym coaches with curated music
playlists to provide motivating, results-driven workouts on demand.

GOLD’S AMP™ provides users with expert guidance, coaching and
encouragement every step of their workout,” said Gold’s Gym Senior Vice
President of Revenue Management and Strategic Partnerships Josh Rider.
“Teaming up with Garmin as a leading wearable technology provider is a
natural fit for GOLD’S AMP™ as we continue to expand and enhance
the experience and results tracking we provide within the app.”

The Garmin integration will make the experience of starting a workout
with GOLD’S AMP™ even more interactive as users with compatible
Garmin devices such as the vívoactive® 3, the fēnix® 5 series and the
Forerunner® 645 Music, will now see their heart rate displayed in
real-time on the mobile app throughout their workouts. Heart rate data
can be used to improve performance and accomplish fitness goals faster.

“We know through our many years of experience in the fitness wearables
space that the importance of heart rate monitoring during exercise
simply cannot be overstated,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of
global consumer sales. “Through this collaboration with Gold’s Gym,
we’re excited to combine our two areas of expertise to provide a digital
personal training experience like no other.”

Later this fall, users will be able to log and store workout data in
both GOLD’S AMP™ and the Garmin Connect™ mobile app, with a GOLD’S
AMP™ Connect IQ app coming soon to compatible devices.

The ever-expanding portfolio of Garmin wearables have a variety of
features to enhance and promote healthy and active lifestyles. Using
Garmin Elevate™ wrist-based heart rate2 technology to stay
motivated throughout the GOLD’S AMP™ workouts is a perfect
example of how Garmin Health partners can take advantage of Garmin’s
cutting-edge wearable technology. New Garmin wearables features like
music and training plans provide endless opportunities for future
innovations between Gold’s Gym and Garmin.

GOLD’S AMP™ features hundreds of in-gym and outdoor workouts
along with thousands of commercial-free DJ mixes and is available in the
U.S. and Canada for iOS and Android on the App Store and Google Play for
$9.99 USD per month.

1 Compatible Garmin devices include vivosmart 3, vivosport,
vivomove HR, vivoactive 3, Forerunner 645, Forerunner 645 Music, fēnix
5s, fēnix 5, and fēnix 5x.
