Fitness equipment manufacturer Precor has announced a new corporate partnership with YMCA, the youth charity and largest provider of fitness training in the UK fitness industry.

Throughout the year-long partnership, Precor will support the development of a new YMCA Health and Wellbeing regional network – a forum for YMCAs to collaborate in further developing and delivering fitness and health activities in their local communities.

Precor, which is part of global sports equipment company Amer Sports, will also raise funds for the charity through a series of fun-filled events.

These efforts got off to a colourful start recently, when staff at Precor UK’s Frimley head office took part in a ‘More Than Just A Song’ day, where teams dressed up as the Village People as they learnt more about the work of YMCA, as well as donating goods to be sold at YMCA charity shops.

“From a business perspective, Precor sees YMCA sites as key to improving the nation’s health and fitness, and we are looking forward to building partnerships through the regional network groups and YMCA’s bi-annual physical activity conference,” said Precor UK marketing manager Jonathan Griffiths.

“The amazing work the YMCA are doing to get young people and local

communities active resonates with our employees and this has been reflected today by how many people are already involved in fundraising efforts.”
