IHRSA 2016 (Booth #2825) - EXOS, the leader in proactive health and performance solutions, today announced a partnership with Precor that brings EXOS Energy Systems Development (ESD) Technology to Precor equipment via Preva, the largest fitness cloud in the world. Preva has more than 200 million recorded workouts from cardio equipment in more than 100 countries.
EXOS ESD Technology evaluates a user's state of fitness to build personalized interval programming to improve the body's ability to generate and use energy. The ESD technology includes time-efficient cardio workouts and data tracking - all from a touch-screen interface available on Preva-enabled Precor treadmills, ellipticals, and indoor cycles.
"At EXOS, we've found that eighty-two percent of people prefer EXOS ESD to traditional cardio workouts," said John Golden, EXOS president of product. "We're excited about this partnership because Precor, which has the world's largest in-gym fitness network, will help bring our cardio technology to people who are looking to achieve their fitness goals."
EXOS programming can be enabled on any new P82 console, as well as the entire network of more than 45,000 networked consoles installed since the 2010 launch of the original P80 console, which adds value to a personal trainer's services and an operator's business. When trainers can spend more time on the gym floor with their clients instead of behind a computer creating programming for clients, they can build the client-trainer relationship that ultimately drives member attraction and retention.
"EXOS' prescriptive workouts have the most sophisticated evaluation and monitoring mechanisms of any on the market," said Jeff Bartee, principal product manager for networked fitness at Precor. "Adding ESD to Precor equipment will give operators and exercisers a powerful tool to help reach their fitness and business goals. Making ESD available to our worldwide install base of networked P80 consoles is another way Precor delivers ongoing value to operators."
New EXOS programming and updates will be initially deployed via the Preva network to existing EXOS corporate customers beginning in Q3 2016. To learn more about ESD technology and its future availability across the overall Preva network, visit the "Futures" area of Precor booth 2825 at IHRSA.
