AV Now Rolls Out 500 New Sound Systems at 24 Hour Fitness Locations
AV Now Fitness Sound, the nation’s largest audio-visual integrator serving the fitness industry, has partnered with 24 Hour Fitness® to install group exercise and cycling studio sound systems in new and existing locations. To date, AV Now has installed over 500 sound systems in 24 Hour Fitness clubs nationwide.
“AV Now has done an excellent job listening to us to better understand our needs, and then they analyzed our request in order to customize our equipment,” said Charles Huff, the vice president of facilities at 24 Hour Fitness. “Their level of detail to deliver and install the sound systems for the group exercise studios was right on target. More importantly, our group X instructors and members have been very pleased with the products AV Now has installed. Given that we offer hundreds of group exercise classes in all of our clubs daily, that’s a nice compliment.”
AV Now’s mandate was to design a sound system that could be scaled for any size room, so all 400-plus locations can have uniformly outstanding sound and the same intuitive operation for every system. Ease of use for instructors, long-term reliability and quick troubleshooting were primary considerations.
“We worked with over a dozen manufacturers, as well as designed and manufactured products to create a custom sound system for 24 Hour Fitness,” said Joshua Haydon, the director of business development at AV Now. “It’s truly unique and built to last. We factored the group exercise instructors’ and facilities’ needs into the system so it can run for dozens of classes a week with very little maintenance.”
