Exercise giant Precor debuts app to help reach fitness goals

In yet another fitness-related app to hit the market, Woodinville, Wash.-based fitness manufacturer Precor just debuted its own iOS app that’s designed to work both with Precor equipment, as well as outside the gym.

Preva allows you to set weekly goals, track your exercise progress and achieve reward badges, all with the information stored in the cloud.

The app interface mimics the software installed on Precor equipment, which can be found in gyms all around the country. Precor, a 32-year-old company founded in Seattle, already has a networked fitness solution based in the cloud also called Preva.

Last year, Precor teamed up with Seattle startup EveryMove, a company that’s focused on exercise reward systems. The plan was to allow users to connect and/or activate to an EveryMove account while using a Precor fitness machine.

EveryMove CEO Russell Benaroya said his company is integrating with Precor’s new app and has an “exclusive relationship to be the rewards engine” for activities captured on Preva.

Fitness and tech certainly has been a popular intersection. In just the past few months we’ve written about Mindbloom’s Proof, which allows users to set up challenges to prove that they can run a mile or do 50 pushups, and Cody, an app for folks to share workouts with friends.
