There are 3 displays that help you follow your performance and track your results. They are also very user friendly and easy to control.
There is the Upper Display, the Centre Display and the Lower Display. The Upper Display offers information on the approximate number of burned calories, program profile during an exercise session and heart rate.
The Center Display offers the program name when a program is selected. During exercises, this display becomes a message bar. It can also show other information according to your selections. To receive extra information, you need to press Metrics and % Complete will appear. Press Metrics or use the navigational arrow keys to surf through all available displays. Press OK when you are done.
The Lower display contains 4 windows, of which the two windows in the center cover the incline and speed information.
The console can offer feedback on average heart rate, average speed, calories, calories per hour, calories per minute, distance, finish time, goal, heart rate, incline and decline, METs, pace, % complete, personal best record, segment time, profile, speed, time, time elapsed, time in heart rate zone and time remaining.
You can personalize your workouts by creating a user profile. And another great thing is that you can insert age, weight and gender information so that your profile is complete.
Heart Rate Readings
You can either use the chest strap or the touch-sensitive handrail grips. After ending your workout, the treadmill offers a heart rate analysis.
There are 23 programs available with the Precor 9.35, of which 1 mile, 10K, 2 mile, 5K, 2 Custom programs, Fitness test, 2 Goal programs, 5 Heart rate programs, 4 Interval programs, Manual, Random, Track, Walk and Weight Loss.
To get to the program list, press one of the Programs keys. Make your choice and press OK. Enter time, distance or goal and then age, weight and gender values. Use speed arrow keys to increase and decrease the speed of the running belt. Select your user profile prior to starting the workout.
Before exercising, you can set display preferences. Choose between U.S. or Metric units and enable or disable the safety code. It’s recommended to include a cool-down segment after workout. When the cool-down segments ends, the belt stops and you get the workout summary.
After you start working out, a flashing column will indicate your position as you exercise. Go to Options to make your safety code settings and to choose your unit of measurement. For the SmartRate feature, you must specify your age and also you must be wearing the chest strap or grasping the handrails.
Choose the unlimited time setting for indefinite exercises. Every time you end a calorie goal, time or distance workout, a cool-down session will begin.
Keep in mind that you can only make time settings for Custom programs. You can’t set distances or calorie goals. Also, you must include on your own a cool-down session, since they don’t incorporate it by default.
You can choose another program in the middle of the present session by going to Programs and choosing a new program, except when your present workout is a Fitness Test or a Heart Rate program.
Remember that Precor 9.35 allows you to record your personal best time, change workout time, adjust program goals and change your workout display options. You can also change units of measurement, adjust your
target heart rate, change safety code protection, set your pace and use the pacer feature with your personal best record.
The Precor 9.35 is a treadmill that will last for a long time. It’s a sturdy and powerful machine, with convenient and user-friendly multi-features. It will instantly grow on you, but only if you can get passed the terrible appearance. To be straight, its exterior design is awful, but the things it does offset all the ugliness.
So what’s the fuss all about? For starters, the powerful motor will allow you to engage in continuous workouts. And speaking of workouts, the console integrates 23 programs, designed for specific goals. One of the highlights of this console is the -2% decline that imitates downhill training. And a secondary notable feature is the heart rate system that offers accurate readouts when you’re engaged in Target Heart Rate workouts.
An innovative technology patented by Precor 9.35 is the Integrated Footplant Technology that basically adjusts the speed of the belt to your natural speed. This feature has turned out to be quite useful to us. Having a treadmill that adjusts its motor as you exercise is user friendly and it makes workouts so much easier and fun.
In addition, the deck adjusts to your height and weight, which delivers impact-free results. It’s nice to have a treadmill that basically adjusts to your own characteristics and keeps you injury-free all the way.
It’s true that you can’t fold this machine for space saving and you don’t have any entertainment incorporated in the 9.35 console. Still, you can’t really expect to fold a machine this powerful.
Also, the exterior design is rather ugly. Don’t count on that to make you get on the treadmill in the morning. But you’ll get high-quality components, workout diversity, impact-free training, a pack of interesting features and accurate feedback. And a warranty that insures safe usage and a machine built to last.
There’s also a minus with this treadmill. The price is not that appealing. Spending $5,000 on a treadmill will make you break your piggy-bank. The price is a drawback that may make you reconsider your choice. You may want to check the Landice L870 Home ProSports treadmill for a lower price and similar characteristics to the Precor 9.35.
All in all, this is a high-quality treadmill for avid runners who are looking to achieve high goals. Additional details can be found at their official page.
