Precor touts world’s largest networked fitness installation
Published Jan. 7, 2014, Geekwire covered Precor announcements as part of our presence at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). This article highlights our announcement of the world's largest installation of networked fitness equipment at Arizona State University. The story touts our announcement that ASU is using our Preva networked fitness solution in a campus-wide effort to help students, faculty and staff be more healthy. With more than 300 pieces of networked equipment, it’s the largest networked fitness installation in the world — a sign of the growing significance of smart exercise equipment.
Precor Vice President of Networked Fitness Brent Brooks is quoted, stating this is a “big milestone,” and that Precor is aiming to make health and fitness more personal through connected exercise equipment and smartphone apps — ensuring a place for itself amid the larger boom in health-related apps, fitness tracking and the “quantified self” phenomenon. “We feel we’re an important part of that growing ecosystem and we want to help enable experiences to leverage data we have available,” Brooks said."
