Providing top quality, user friendly, and state-of-the-art equipment was important to the Mission Valley YMCA located in San Diego, CA. They wanted to provide their community with high quality workouts and more importantly, encourage them to come back.
When their facility was undergoing a remodel to update the décor and infrastructure, the YMCA team wanted to upgrade their equipment. They also wanted to find ways to save money, lower overall business costs and operate more efficiently. Precor was able to help them with each of these challenges.
The mission of the YMCA organization is to provide a space for their community to engage in a healthier lifestyle and enjoy a more positive workout experience. With this in mind, the Mission Valley YMCA faced several challenges.
- Their building’s remodel project allowed them the opportunity to purchase equipment that would help them attract new members, but the team also wanted their equipment to provide them with valuable information and help them be more efficient.
- The Mission Valley YMCA wanted to understand the habits of their members in an effort to better serve them.
- They wanted to provide the latest technology to their members.
The Mission Valley YMCA was the first site within the YMCA system to launch Preva, the Precor networked fitness solution. This installation was paramount in helping the YMCA succeed and provide valuable information to the Y staff.
While Preva is an outstanding value-added solution for members, its technology is a helpful resource for facility staff. The staff is able to analyze equipment efficiencies, monitor peak hours and provide insight into their members’ workouts. Through Preva Business Suite, the team is able to oversee their cardio floor usage and downtime. Through these insights, their operational efficiencies are better than ever.
By using Preva Business Suite, the Y staff gained new understanding of their members’ habits. For instance, they noticed the cardio equipment was being used most heavily in the afternoons. Because of these findings they are able to swap out the cardio units that are most used with other units that weren’t being used as much. This simple insight has extended the lifespan of their cardio units.
The Mission Valley YMCA has utilized Preva’s Business Suite to help run their facility more effectively and efficiently, while also learning about their members’ needs for a fitness and community facility.
