YMCA's technology overlooked

I found the article "Technology mixes workouts, play" (Jan. 21, Lifestyles) very interesting. I recently rejoined the local YMCA and was delighted to discover the FitLinxx technology in their fitness center. I am able to track my workouts as well as have at my fingertips specific information for each machine -- total weight to lift, a target range of repetitions to strive for and a delightful and encouraging signal when I've reached the target.

The article made no mention that our local YMCA offers the FitLinxx system. I was very disappointed as I felt this would have been a perfect opportunity to promote what our local YMCA has to offer. There certainly has been plenty of negative publicity about the YMCA recently.
