The University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Sport and Exercise (CSE) has raised the curtain on its extensive Cardio gym refurbishment, which saw the installation of 102 pieces of Precor cardiovascular equipment.

The refurbishment is part of the university’s pledge to ensure its members and guests have access to the most technologically advanced, state-of-the-art equipment. It saw the installation of 45 Precor Next-Generation Experience Series treadmills, as well as seven Adaptive Motion Trainers (AMTs) to add to the 30 already on offer across the university’s Cardio, myGym and Circuit Gym facilities. All units feature Preva networked fitness, a cloud-based software platform incorporating a suite of tools to help both operators and exercisers achieve their set targets.

“We continually seek to enhance member experience and provide the highest level of facilities for our members and the community,” said Jim Aitken MBE, University of Edinburgh director of sport and exercise.

“The refurbishment is core to our health and well-being advocacy and central to promoting Precor’s Preva networked fitness software, that helps our students and the life-long community achieve their goals.”

Additional refurbishment to the Cardio gym space included a refreshed layout to provide more logical cardio kit clusters and member flow, as well as new wiring to support network connectivity.

The launch of the refurbished facilities was held earlier this month with an opening ceremony jointly conducted by Aitken, Precor marketing manager Jonathan Griffiths and elite student athlete Rhona Auckland, who recently became European U-23 Cross Country Champion.
