Excellent Machine

This is the best piece of equipment I have ever purchased. You can use it in so many ways! Except for some dumbells and cardio, it will replace all of your other equipment. It's fun to use and takes up so little space.

Very good workout equipment.

I recently purchased a Precor S3.23 Functional Trainer. I absolutely love this machine! I am 70 years young and have been exercising/working out my whole adult life. In that time I have tried many routines and equipment, including some Tai chi. My set up now only includes a foam roller, elliptical machine and the S3.23 Function Trainer.
I am currently doing 20 movements on the S3.23 and looking forward to many more variations as I advance in ability. The "perceived exertion" is very low, much like my elliptical machine, but the fitness improvement has been noticeable in a very short period.
In a separate communication I suggest a few things that may even improve the S3.23 even though it is a great machine the way it is. My only complaint is "Where have you been all these years"?

The love of exercise and the time I spent to go to a gym made the decision to purchase the 3.23 an easy one. I'm not too familiar with functional trainers since free weights have always been comfortable for me, but know the Precor (treadmills) quality enough to do the online purchase "sight unseen". I was not home for delivery and set up, but my wife says the process went smooth and tidy. They even hauled away the packaging! We've been using it for about 6 weeks now. As far as it's quality and performance goes, let me first say that I am known as cynical/critical when it comes to any product - especially those that are not inexpensive. So I think it's only fair to give praise to those products that genuinely impress me. The 3.23 does that. Very durable overall. It's moving parts are quiet. As a tall guy I was a bit concerned about the mobility/freedom it would allow me but haven't had a problem yet. Lots of versatility and lots of cable length for lunges and pulls. The more I've used it the more the possibilities seem endless. At the risk of sounding corny I must add that I really find it fun to use. The only two things of concern are the set up guys not putting the numeric weight decals on the weights saying that they would easily peel off anyway, and the sharpness / pointiness of the clasping hooks at the ends of the cables.
