Precor®, the company that has revolutionized the fitness industry with its mix and match portfolio of cardio equipment for health clubs and fitness facilities, announced this week that it has reached a new milestone with its networked fitness consoles. As of June 2019, Precor had surpassed 100,000 networked units in more than 7700 facilities in 98 countries. Since 2009, Precor has experienced steady growth in the number of facilities requiring a greater level of connection, and this milestone serves as a strong indicator that connectivity is here to stay.
“At Precor, we design end-to-end solutions that make life easier,” said Dave Flynt, the vice president of experience design at Precor in a press release. “We create ways to maintain superior quality, improve serviceability and ensure that our products are future-proof. Over the last 10 years, we have not only been thinking about and designing products for the fitness space, but we’ve been studying the bigger picture of just how technology and fitness integrate into the lives of our customers and our exercisers. Reaching this milestone provides more proof that connecting technology with fitness is no longer a trend. It is the norm.”
The Precor connected experience is driven by the innovative, open-sourced operating system known as Preva®. Preva offers facility managers flexibility and choice in creating a custom experience that is tailored to each facility. Preva utilizes a series of strategic, best-in-class partners including eGym®, ClubCom® and Netpulse® that help facility operators get the most value from their investments by providing functionalities that benefit both the business and the exerciser. These functionalities include asset management, data/user analysis, marketing outreach and facility programming, to name a few. Preva helps facilities drive member attraction, retention, engagement and secondary revenue while also smoothing out business operations.
Exercisers can also take advantage of smart Preva innovations by connecting to the most popular entertainment, social and content apps available via the expertly-designed interface that was created specifically for users in motion. Users will enjoy the benefits of a seamless single sign-on experience which allows members quick access to their content and the ability to hop on and begin their workout without interruption.
To date, Preva has logged more than 725 million workouts worldwide. Why are these numbers important to customers?
“There is always confidence in numbers,” said Darrin Stock, the senior product marketing manager at Precor in a press release. “These numbers give our customers real assurance that the Precor networked solution can be trusted and is growing. Clearly, Precor has moved far beyond the startup days of networked fitness – yet a decade in and we’re still very excited to bring more innovation and experiences to the market. It only gets better from here.”
