Houston — The YMCA of Greater Houston recently signed a six-year agreement making Precor the exclusive supplier for its strength, cardio and entertainment equipment.

With 38 locations in the Greater Houston area, the Houston YMCA is the third largest association in the United States. Last year, nearly 900,000 people were served through Y programs, such as child development and education, health enhancement, wellness, camping, sports and recreation, and community development. One-third of all Houston Y members receive financial assistance.

“We've had the good fortune to work with Precor for several years, and over time, they've come to understand and truly embrace our mission of serving the community,” says Clark Baker, Greater Houston Y president and CEO. “Certainly, the Precor equipment helps us deliver a fitness experience that delights our members, but beyond that, they've added real support to key initiatives that resonate with our mission to build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.”

Precor has signed similar arrangements with Y associations in Kansas City, MO, and Pittsburgh.
