Precor treadmills are always at the top of the list when it comes to high-end machines that bring all of the great features of health club equipment to the residential market. They are known for quality construction and ergonomic design, giving you the best possible workout experience.
Precor was created by David Smith under the name of Precision Corporation in 1980. After a series of mergers, it became a subsidiary of Amer Sports Corp, one of the largest equipment companies in the world. The company also owns well-regarded brands such as Wilson, Salomon and Suunto, all leaders in their respective industries.
Over the past 30 years, Precor has established itself as one of the top choices for residential and commercial equipment, and the company continues to bring innovation to the industry.
Precor Treadmill Reviews – A Look at the Models
The Precor treadmill lineup changes often, but at any given time there are a half a dozen residential machines for sale. Currently you have the Energy Series and the more advanced Precision Series.
Let’s take a look at all of the different models…
The lower priced Energy Series consists of the TRM 211, TRM 223 and top of the line TRM 243.
The TRM 211 has Energy Stride shock absorption, speeds up to 12 mph, up to 15% incline, 3.0 CHP motor, 57″ x 20″ deck, 6 built in workouts and a 300 lb. max weight capacity.
The TRM 223 gives you all of the features of the 211 plus a handful of additional workouts, 2 user profiles and wireless heart rate monitoring.
The TRM 243 improves upon the 223 with 23 built in and 16 personalized workouts and 4 user profiles plus a touch screen display with Preva workout tracking to keep tabs on your workouts.
Although the Energy Series is certainly gym quality, the Precision Series is even closer to what you’d find in the health club, with a much more advanced cushioning system.
The TRM 425 has Ground Effects Impact Control, which gives you the ideal amount of give/firmness at every part of your stride, as well as Integrated Footplant technology, which automatically adjusts the belt speed to reduce impact on your joints.
It has a shorter but wider deck than the Energy Series, at 56″ x 22″ deck, wireless heart rate, 9 built in workouts, 2 user IDs plus decline capability on top of incline. Man weight capacity jumps to 350 lbs.
The higher end TRM 445 gives you everything the 445 but with the same amount of workouts, user profiles, touch screen and tracking that the TRM 243 has.
All of the Precor treadmills are built strong and virtually maintenance free, with solid cushioning and effective workouts.
