Treadmill Insights: Tips For Buying Right

Treadmills Built for the Long Term: Informed buying to help your fitness facility thrive

Informed buying decisions help fitness facilities thrive. And for facility operators investing in new equipment, few decisions matter more than choosing the right treadmills.

Health club and university markets in five countries. Through these interactions, Precor identified three dominant business needs treadmill investments must meet:

1. RELIABILITY – Treadmills should be durable and provide dependable performance. They should also be reliably attractive over the long term and appeal to exercisers aesthetically.

2. LOW OPERATING COST – To mitigate the rising costs of facility operation, treadmills should incorporate energy efficient components and technologies.

3. EASE OF SERVICE – Treadmills that are easily serviced can reduce or even eliminate downtime during peak use hours.

These are the primary factors that influence treadmill buying decisions. For Precor, they’re primary factors in treadmill design, too.
