Exciting new features
Precor’s seven new elliptical trainers and five new treadmills come with a full range of exciting new features to complement patented innovations such as the Ground Effects Impact Control System and Integrated Footplant Technology. These features include the state-of-the-art 20 console and the capacitive touch 40 console; improved tablet and smartphone compatibility; Preva networked fitness; motion control toggle switches; enhanced safety measures; and halos.
In addition, the new machines offer a greater degree of customization than ever, thereby allowing exercisers to engage in workouts specifically targeted for weight loss, muscle toning, improving athletic performance, or other fitness goals.
The brand of choice for 24 Hour Fitness
24 Hour Fitness, the largest privately owned chain of health clubs and fitness centers in the world, recently decided to upgrade the cardio machines in their 425 U.S. locations. Toward this end, they field tested several top machines, including the Precor 811, Star Trac Pro, Matrix T5, and Life Fitness Integrity, by sending a team of their best technicians to kick the tires and look under the hood.
The techs evaluated each machine in terms of ease of serviceability, expected lifespan, quality of components, and similar variables. Precor quickly emerged as the clearcut consensus winner, so now 24 Hour Fitness members can expect to see new Precor treadmills and ellipticals at their clubs very soon!
Precor in the media
As expected, Precor’s new treadmills and ellipticals have generated significant hype in media circles. News of the launch has already received glowing press coverage in the Robb Report and Luxury Life, and thorough product reviews from well-known and respected publications such as Runner’s World, Consumer Reports, Good Housekeeping, and Forbes will be released in the near future. Moreover, Adam Hubbard, Precor’s director of product management, has been interviewed by Health Magazine and examiner.com to provide his take on the Energy Series and Precision Series models. Look for those pieces in the coming weeks.
