Why buy Precor treadmills?

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. We introduced the first cushioned treadmill in 1990 and have been improving on it ever since, striving to bring you the most comfortable workout possible, besting 27 competitors. In 2010, our 9.31 premium treadmill won the Top Treadmill award by a leading consumer rating publication. By providing superb comfort, we make it easier for you to work out longer and more often.

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

Patented Ground Effects® Impact Control System. Our commercial and premium home treadmills also include our 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 increase overall motor life and reliability.

Exercise variety with pre-set workouts. The most successful exercise program is one that you stick with over time, and Precor treadmills help you in that endeavor by offering programs that are challenging and motivating.

Ease of use. Precor 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, its life is doubled.

Moving forward, we will continue to focus on understanding the role fitness plays in everyday life and how users interact with our equipment. We use every observation to create equipment that makes exercise more engaging, enjoyable, fluid, and natural. And we believe we’ll change how you think about and pursue fitness again in the future.
