Best Features

Impact Reduction and Natural Stride

The Precor TRM 731 features two unique technologies that separate it from the rest of the pack: Ground Effects Impact Control and Integrated Footplant technology.

Ground Effects is one of the most advanced shock absorption systems on the market today, eliminating impact and providing for a much comfortable run.

Integrated Footplant provides the ideal support at each stage of your running motion, giving you the ideal, natural stride throughout and minimizing fatigue.

Great Variety of Workouts

The 731 features a nice variety of built-in workout programs, 21 in total plus a manual setting.

This includes 4 weight loss, 3 heart rate, 3 performance, 7 variety and 4 intervals.

This allows you to really change up your workouts and choose different goals for each session, targeting muscle groups and burning more calories.

Incline Capability

The Precor TRM 731 gives you incline capability up to 15%, which allows you to ramp up your training and burn more calories in the process.

If you are interested in decline training as well, take a look at the TRM 835 model as well.

Advanced Runner's Deck

The 731 features a multi-ply, reversible polyester deck that is pre-waxed for added lubrication. The system will last for a very long period of time.

The deck is mounted independently as well, making it not only more stable but quieter as well.

Other Features

You get a lot of additional features as well, including a strong motor, water bottle and accessory holders, Auto Stop safety function, touch and wireless heart rate monitoring and integrated transport wheels.

The large LED console has a Quick Start function and nineteen different workout metrics including distance, speed, heart rate, calories, pace, watts, METs and more.

Conclusion

Pros

There’s a lot to like on the Precor TRM 731 and the reviews have been very positive so far. You get a strong motor, incline capability, great cushioning, generously sized deck, lots of workouts and plenty of comfort features.

Drawbacks

There aren’t any real negatives here, but for over $7000 it would be nice to have a touch screen display with apps and tracking capability and perhaps a wireless chest strap included.

However, these are certainly not deal breakers and what you are giving up in terms of bells and whistles you are getting in design, comfort and function.

At the end of the day getting on the treadmill is about working out and seeing results…and the TRM 731 delivers that in spades.

Bottom Line

If you can afford the hefty price tag, the new Precor TRM 731 is a great choice in high-end residential treadmills.

It will provide years of use for you, always keeping you in the ideal position and providing the right amount of cushioning for each part of your stride.

Again, if you want decline capability take a look at the TRM 835 as well, which gives you up to 3% decline, plus up to 16 mph speed and longer handrail.
