What is Networked Fitness?

Networked Fitness is a collection of products and services that strive to deliver fitness related solutions for exercisers and/or fitness operators via technology-based platforms.
Technology has dramatically changed our lives and has become the underlining element of our day to day activities at work and home. Technology and the internet have combined to become the essential backbone of everything from global commerce and security to the distribution of entertainment and communication.   
Now this powerful combination comes to fitness and Precor is leading the industry in adopting it with PrevaTM.   Preva is the Precor solution to networked fitness that leverages the power of technology to meaningfully connect people with their lifelong fitness journey while delivering experiences that engage and motivate in ways that help exercisers achieve their fitness goals.  For fitness operators Preva provides solutions that increase retention of exercisers, optimize asset management of fitness equipment and help drive more revenue.
The integration of networking technology in fitness equipment comes at a time when the World Health Organization estimates that worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980, with more than 500 million men and women considered obese worldwide. Just as technology and the internet has transformed many areas of our lives, it now promises to transform workout experiences to better motivate people to begin and continue a fitness journey that can last a lifetime.
