A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor

GC Pro Is a Great Fit for Fit Revolution

— New Boston-area fitness center relied on GC Pro to outfit it with the best sound for spinning —

Fit Revolution, an indoor cycling studio and “boot camp” fitness-training facility that opened last September in the Boston suburb of North Reading, keeps its hundreds of members in great shape with 22 stationary bicycles in its 800-square-foot studio. It also is one more example of how Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, has helped a wide range of establishments, from restaurants to retail, get the right AV systems that fit the way they work and help boost their business.

GC Pro Senior Account Manager PK Pandey was referred to Fit Revolution Owner Michelle O’Connor by a colleague for whom GC Pro had recently installed a new sound system. “PK and I talked a bit about what I wanted to accomplish, and he seemed to understand it perfectly,” says O’Connor, who was also the PT Director at the Reading YMCA for four years. “I told PK that I had a budget to work with but that I was willing to pay for quality. I just trusted him to know what had to be done, and it turned out perfectly.”

Says Pandey, who heads up GC Pro’s Boston location, “Michelle and I had one meeting and we hit it off. I knew exactly what she was looking to do and how to help her achieve that. She now has the best sound system in a fitness club I know of. It sounds amazing.”

At Fit Revolution, GC Pro spec’ed and installed four Electro-Voice® EVID™ 8.2 Ceiling Series speakers and two Electro-Voice EVID 10.1 subwoofers, all powered through an Electro-Voice CPS2.6 amplifier and controlled via a Yamaha MG12 mixer. In addition, GC Pro installed a pair of American DJ® Mega Bar™ LED lights. “I liked that PK chose to use ceiling speakers,” O’Connor points out. “I’ve seen other fitness installations where the speakers are put in the corners and that tends to look cluttered and take up valuable floor space. PK recognized that floor space is part of the business model for a fitness center, so putting the speakers in the ceiling was the best way to go.”

O’Connor says the feedback from her clients about the sound quality has been great, as has GC Pro’s follow-up. “If there’s ever an issue, PK is right here with the solution,” she says. “It’s been a great experience working with GC Pro. I’m glad someone recommended them to me, and I’ll be happy to do the same for someone else.”
