Preva at the JCC

Back in March, our Fitness Center received a face lift. Walls were painted, new mat flooring was installed, and the Next Generation of Precor Cardio Equipment was moved in!clientuploads/Fitness/preva.jpg

Our members are experiencing the great enhancements Precor has created in their new line, and also Internet Capability.  A member working out has the luxury of watching the news, movies, or educational program to make them more fit – the exerciser can now download their routines and stats for a given workout to their smart phone via PREVA.

What is PREVA?

Preva Mobile App for iPhone allows fitness enthusiasts to set goals, track their progress and earn fun badges for their hard work.  In other words, the PREVIA Mobile allows users to track other activities such as cycling, strength training, running, and more outside of the gym - via the Cloud.  Preva Mobile allows users to create a comprehensive log of activities to stay on top of their goals and keep them motivated. It offers rewards in the form of badges at intervals throughout the process -- sometimes when the user expects it upon achieving a stated goal --and other times as a surprise, to keep the user motivated and excited to keep going.

With this App, exercisers can log activities for points, set goals, achieve badge rewards, and monitor their overall progress on a daily, weekly or lifetime basis. Setting goals are easy. Preva has four categories the user can chose from: Lose Weight, Be Fit, Get Toned or Push Performance.
