Precor secures major contract with Planet Fitness

Precor secures major contract with Planet Fitness
August 28, 2018

Global fitness equipment supplier Precor has announced its most lucrative vendor contract with the signing of a two-year approved vendor agreement with the world’s largest buyer of commercial fitness equipment, Planet Fitness.

Understood to be worth US$30 million, the  agreement provides Planet Fitness franchisees the option to equip clubs with the full range of Precor commercial cardiovascular and strength equipment, in addition to Queenax®, the world’s most unique functional and suspension training system.

In addition, Precor, the lead brand in Amer Sports’ Fitness business unit, and Planet Fitness are also working together to develop and offer additional digital services to the franchisee base.

With more than 11 million members, and over 1,500 doors, Planet Fitness is one of the largest influencers in the North American fitness space with more than six million workouts taking place within Planet Fitness locations each week.

As one of its three approved vendors, Precor will benefit from both the opportunity to equip new stores and the refresh of equipment in the existing outlets

Annoucing the contract, Rob Barker, President of Precor and Amer Sports Executive Board Member, stated “we are excited to be part of the Planet Fitness growth and helping the company, its franchisees and members be the best they can be.

“Precor aims to win in the big market segments and has designed a line of products and services targeting the rapidly growing sector that Planet Fitness leads. Planet Fitness is continually looking to evolve its offering to enhance millions of people’s lives, which fits perfectly with our mission.

“To accomplish this, we really listened and took the time to understand the specific needs of Planet Fitness and their franchisees and developed custom solutions to their problems. Franchisees told us they wanted a supplier to help them build upon their successes, and to help make their clubs the best they can be with best-in-class products and service. Precor delivers upon that goal.”

Planet Fitness, Inc. Chief Executive Chris Rondeau added “we have been trialing Precor for the last three years, and I am pleased to now include Precor as an approved vendor across our business.

“Both our franchisees and our members will benefit from the Precor high-quality products and exercise experiences; we will also work closely with Precor to enhance our digital services as we grow our overall member experience.”
