Enduring quality 

For the past 30 years, Precor has designed and produced treadmills to withstand the most trying environments and the most demanding users. Every Precor treadmill provides remarkable cushioning so you can enjoy walking and running with minimal impact on your joints and back.

So, what is it about Precor treadmills that help you move so well?

The following are some of our key treadmill features:

Patented Ground Effects® Impact Control System.  This technology one-ups Mother Nature and other treadmills by absorbing shock only at the point of impact and providing maximum stability at push-off. Rather than flex like a bow, our premium treadmills employ a collection of individual shock absorbers to provide variable absorption, while adding important lateral stability to prevent injury. The rear of the deck, meanwhile, maintains a solid surface that keeps your foot from sinking and makes it easy to push off, maintaining speed, reducing fatigue, and also preventing injury.
Patented Integrated Footplant Technology™.  Our Integrated Footplant Technology makes the treadmill move the way you do by changing the belt speed to match that of your foot. As your foot slows and accelerates during impact and push-off, our technology senses it and adjusts the belt speed – up to 710 times a minute. Unique to Precor, the adjustments ensure you feel a naturally rhythmic stride instead of the shoe and joint discomfort that come with the drag and pull of other treadmills.
Advanced motors. Don't be fooled by the "bigger is always better" rhetoric associated with treadmill horsepower ratings. Precor treadmill motors are matched with the treadmill's other components to provide the ideal treadmill experience. Running cool and quiet, Precor treadmill motors provide substantial power and torque at all speeds. Equipped with a constant-speed cooling fan, our motors perform efficiently at slower speeds, which also increases overall motor life and reliability.
Ease of use. Our treadmills are designed with easy-to-read, navigable consoles that make sense. With the QuickStart™ feature, you'll be on your treadmill and exercising with the touch of a button.
Low maintenance. While Precor treadmills require basic care, maintaining the running deck is easy because it requires no maintenance - it's self-lubricating. And on select home models, the deck is reversible, which means its life is doubled.
