Precor achieve record installation at Anytime Fitness Dandenong

November 12, 2013

Leading fitness equipment supplier Precor has fully equipped a new fitness club in a nine-hour time frame.

While the installation of the Precor equipment at Anytime Fitness Dandenong was achieved with ease, the new club (Anytime Fitness' 302nd), which opened on 7th November, faced a number of challenges prior to its opening.

Franchisee Lorien Hasko-Stewart explains "I encountered everything an older building could throw at me asbestos (twice!), sewage problems and a lengthy protracted council approval process.

"It was a stressful time as opening a new club always is, and these additional challenges added to the stress.

"The one thing ... I did not have to worry about was the installation.

"Precor planned and executed this impeccably and, by completing the installation in nine hours from start to finish helped me recover some of the time lost earlier in the process.

"As a result I was able to have the club ready for opening three days prior to the scheduled grand opening."

The installation at the 480 metre2 facility, was entirely completed in the space of nine hours, a record install timescale for Precor Australia.

US-based Precor designs and builds premium fitness equipment and continually advances the commercial fitness industry with breakthrough new product categories, including EFX® Elliptical, Adaptive Motion Trainer® 'AMT®' and Preva® Networked Fitness.

Precor is a subsidiary of Amer Sports Corporation, the world's largest sports equipment company, with internationally recognized brands Wilson, Atomic, Suunto, Salomon, Arc'Teryx and Mavic.

With clubs open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, Anytime Fitness prides itself on providing members with convenient and affordable fitness options in friendly facilities which feature top-quality exercise equipment.
