On Demand Webinar: Insights to Stay Current with Strength Equipment Purchasing 

Buying strength equipment is not the way it used to be. Change is rampant. The available space has changed, the exerciser has changed, the competition has changed, the products have changed. One of the things that hasn't changed is that buying strength equipment is a longer-term ownership commitment than other types of fitness equipment. How do you know you're making the right decision? What are the important things you need to think about when purchasing strength? Ultimately, what matters is that what you purchased gets used by exercisers of all experience levels.

Listen to Richard Earney of Midtown Athletic Club as he discusses how they determined the right product mix to maximize their new floor space. Rudy Fabiano, CEO of Fabiano Designs, will share insights on how design trends are influencing fitness facilities. Hear from Erica Tillinghast, Precor global education manager, as she explains what's behind the trends in strength training and how this may affect your purchase decision. Get firsthand knowledge from John Meeks, co-owner of two CrossFit gyms, regarding how to stay current in the competitive fitness landscape.
