Their vision becomes a reality: A university success story

One important goal for a university is to establish healthy behaviors that their students can continue throughout their lives.  When universities partner with Precor, they take an important step towards this goal by providing the best possible recreation center for their students, staff, and patrons. The University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG) made this commitment when they designed their new facility and they are now reaping the rewards.

The Leonard J. Kaplan Center for Wellness on the UNCG campus opened their facility before the start of the 2016-2017 school year. Striving to create one of the top attractions on campus, the Recreation and Wellness team had the vision for the new facility to “evolve into a place where you can reflect deeper, play harder, grow stronger, explore further, accomplish more, and enjoy life.”1

The staff needed more than just an equipment supplier to make this vision a reality. They needed a partner – one that was willing to grow with them. Their relationship with Precor and Advantage Sport & Fitness, a Precor Authorized Dealer became just that—a partnership. 

Precor provided a complete fitness solution to the UNCG team that included the aspects they identified as key components for their recreation center to be a success.

Since opening, the UNCG Kaplan Center has seen a significant 25% increase in usage over their previous sports center. The partnership between Precor and UNCG has helped make the Kaplan Center an anchor within the campus for fitness, recreational activities, and social gatherings.
