"Preva networked fitness is one of the key ways we differentiate from the competition and being able to now offer Video On Demand gives us an even greater edge. It’s a game-changer; there is no easier or better way to connect exercisers with the content they love. It’s a great way to encourage longer, more frequent workouts."
