Precor has announced a new partnership with the City of Yarra, and will refit all gymnasium equipment as part of a refurbishment of Collingwood Leisure Centre and Fitzroy Swimming Pool.
The refurbishment project will see the introduction of functional training zones, increased floor space and disability access through equipment selection and the relocation and renovation of Fitzroy’s spin studio to Collingwood Leisure Centre.
All gymnasium equipment will be replaced by Precor, including top-of-the-range Experience Series 880 Line networked cardio equipment, including treadmills, recumbent and upright bikes and the innovative Adaptive Motion Trainer (AMT), as well as its Discovery Series Selectorised Line strength equipment.
According to Peter Watson, Manager, Leisure Services for the City of Yarra, the refurbishment has been guided by consultation with patrons to determine what improvements were needed across the two facilities.
“Our consultation process revealed patrons were looking for a layout that better supported functional and small group training, consolidation and upgrade of equipment, more floor space for activities like stretching and daily gym floor sessions hosted by our instructors. When it came to equipment we were impressed by Precor’s premium quality, technological capabilities and commitment to after sales service,” said Peter. “We’re pleased to be offering our members innovative, world-class equipment such as the AMT which will replace our current ellipticals, and boasts enormous versatility and is so unique in what it can deliver.”
The innovative and premium design of Precor’s AMT with Open Stride takes fitness to a whole new level. This single piece of equipment fully engages exercisers of all fitness levels with an infinite range of stride paths, making every session a personalised experience. The AMT provides exercisers boundless cardio variety without the need to change machines, with adjustable stride height and length. It can even duplicate the workouts of treadmills, ellipticals and bikes.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with the City of Yarra to deliver the best facilities and workouts possible,” said Peter Dugmore, Precor Australia’s Business Manager. “We are very proud of our continued success in partnering with a variety of LGAs in Victoria in the last 12 months to deliver top quality, state-of-the-art fitness facilities for local communities to enjoy.”
