    There is a strong brand recognition with Precor on Trip Advisor. 

    Today, many people choose their hotel after reading reviews from the social media.

    “The interesting thing is that a hotel gym can influence non-exercisers as well. If an exerciser has a sub-standard workout experience, he might give a bad hotel review which can deter others from staying there”, Stephen Bruner says.

    The most powerful social media site for travelers is TripAdvisor: over 50% of travelers say they visit Trip Advisor before booking their hotel.


    “We have an excellent relationship with Trip Advisor. We are working with them on several content initiatives that include traveler research and content for our P80 touch screen console.”

    “We recently launched a Trip Advisor branded campaign that encourages guests to post reviews and to mention their fitness experience. In fact, Precor is the only fitness supplier with a Trip Advisor relationship.”

    The co-operation has proven to be worthwhile. Guests often mention Precor in their comments.

    “More guests have reported positive comments with Precor than any of our competitors. There is a high correlation between Precor mentions and high guest ratings”, David Diehl says.

    One point in rating can mean a lot of money. According to Trip Advisor, a one-point swing in ratings equals an 11% increase in revenue per available room.

    More information can be found in the case studies on various hotels that Precor is found in here


    The right equip can enhance the guest experience. The right brand of equipment will drive traffic to your door and increase repeat business.

    • 55% of business travelers have walked out of a hotel gym due to bad equipment.
    • 25% of business travelers said they would book a hotel if it offered a 24-hour fitness suite.
    • On average, property reviews where “NEW gym equipment” is referenced rate one STAR higher on a five star scale.

    A new Precor fitness center can increase ROI! 

    If a property can increase its review by one point (on a five-point scale) on OTA (On-line Travel Agency) channels, it could increase its prices by about 11.2% and still maintain the same occupancy rates.

    Equipped with trending equipment, the fitness center increases revenue and profits.
