About us
For more than 35 years, Precor has driven fitness forward. We continue that heritage every day, by advancing what’s possible in design innovation, member experience and service.
We understand the challenges fitness facilities in multiple sectors face, and our team of experts from sales and marketing to aftersales support and service will ensure your investment in fitness equipment is maximised.

Product range
In 2015 Precor added Queenax™ functional training to its product portfolio, as well as announcing its partnership with Spinning®, the world leader in indoor cycling. Launching six new Spinner® bikes in 2016.
Precor’s strength equipment suite has grown, with additions to the Discovery Series Plate-Loaded Strength range and Benches and Racks. The P82 console has also been launched with an updated version of Preva, the cloud-based networked fitness solution.
Throughout its history, Precor has been at the vanguard of fitness innovation and award-winning CV products; creating the world’s first elliptical fitness crosstrainer (EFX), inventing the cushioned treadmill and launching the Adaptive Motion Trainer (AMT).
The recent launch of the new Experience Series EFX 800 with converging CrossRamp®, which mimics the normal converging path of motion as a person walks and runs, continues Precor’s ‘first to market’ innovation trademark.
Precor’s in-house engineers provide a superior service, which includes a first time fix rate of over 98%, seven days a week cover and guaranteed response time within 48 hours. All of this results in maximum equipment uptime, which is now proven to increase retention.
