24/7 Health and Fitness has two locations, with virtually no competition. They were in a great position to be the best health club in the area. They were moving to a new facility that would double their current space, but their budget was limited for upgrading their equipment. 24/7 Health and Fitness was looking for a cost effective option to help them achieve their operational and marketing goals.
Running an efficient gym, especially one that was double their original space, was going to be a challenge for 24/7 Health and Fitness. Other challenges the team faced as they decided which fitness equipment manufacturer to choose included:
- Upgrading their equipment within a tight budget without upgrade costs effecting member monthly dues.
- Gathering more information on how members utilized the current cardio equipment and assessing effectively of their current variety of machines.
- Providing a personalized entertainment option for exercisers.
When their Precor Key Account Manager ran a diagnostic of the facility’s existing cardio equipment, he found some surprising data. Their treadmills were being overused while the elliptical machines were being underused. By installing 15 Precor treadmills, 10 EFX machines, nine bikes, and one Adaptive Motion Trainer (AMT) they increased equipment variety and better met member needs. They also opted to install the Personal Viewing Systems (PVS) on the units, allowing members to choose their own entertainment
24/7 Health and Fitness also chose to work with Precor because of its strong sales support and ease of doing business which increased overall return on investment.
After partnering with Precor, 24/7 Health and Fitness. The club owner has observed that the cardio floor is more occupied with members reaching their fitness goals.
24/7 Health and Fitness has not only seen their equipment used more efficiently, but their upgrade to the Precor equipment has shown them that their money was well spent and they found a true partner in Precor.
