Precor Cares Program for the YMCA

“Like the Y, Precor believes that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, our neighbors and our community. “ Paul Byrne, President.

At Precor, we are moved by improving tomorrow through our actions today. We are proud to have introduced the first Low Impact Treadmill in 1989, the first Elliptical Trainer (EFX®) in 1995, and the first Adaptive Motion Trainer® (AMT®) in 2007. They have been game changers for us and the industry, but more importantly, they have enabled thousands of individuals to pursue healthy living today and an even healthier tomorrow.

This drive to fulfill dreams and enable meaningful change in people’s lives aligns perfectly with the Y’s commitment to strengthen communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. That is why we have chosen to support the Y through our Precor Cares Program.

Precor has awarded over 1 million dollars in support of various YMCA programs since the inception of Precor Cares in 2010. This year, we are pleased to announce in partnership with YMCA of the USA (Y-USA), that a total of $150,000 will be awarded to local YMCA’s across the country to support the implementation of the YMCA’s Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA) standards. These grants will be facilitated via Easygrants, the Y’s online grantmaking system. A grant announcement, along with grant requirements and reporting expectations, will be posted on YExchange in December 2012.

Precor Cares has received overwhelmingly positive feedback since its introduction and Precor has become recognized, more than ever, as a trustworthy and caring YMCA partner helping to improve health and wellness in over 43 communities. We are thrilled to grow this partnership to include YMCA of the USA, allowing us to support even more Ys nationwide.
