This treadmill is easy to use, has many new updates with access to music and classes. The incline and speed is easy to use and I really enjoy the option to make the belt softer or harder based on preferences. Has space for water bottle and iPad which is nice.
We bought a Precor Treadmill some 15-20 years ago, and have had no problems with it! Sturdy unit that holds runners up to 300 pounds- I weigh 235 and use it daily to rehab my replaced right hip. You can easily convert the "road surface" scenarios with regards to hills and depressions, or for "custom" training programs! It keeps track of your overall time, distance run, and heart rate by using the included sensors...

I'd buy a Precor every time due to their dependability. I have a newer one now, but I had an older one I bought from a friend who'd had it several years and it lasted me 9 more years, holding on strong. The belt never swayed or came a loose and the entire structure, including the handle, electronic board and wiring maintained throughout the duration I've had it. I wanted to upgrade for more features, otherwise I would have kept. Was still able to sell and get half of my money back from reselling after 9 years - ridiculous!
Precor treadmills are the most solidly built treadmills that I have ever seen. They do not wobble when used. Also, programming is on bar the easiest and operating it, makes total sense. Lastly, I like doing deadmills. That's when you put the treadmill at a 10 degree incline, and then unplug it. Precor stays there, and you can then push the slide yourself by imitating running, this is a great workout, and you can use it for High intensity Interval training, HIIT.
Our clunky 20 yr. old treadmill could not be moved into our new home, gave it to our daughter and it is still working fine. Bought this well-touted model which now allegedly needs a new motherboard. The parts (which are slow to arrive) are covered but the $130 service charge for the diagnosis was not, presumably we will have to shell out another $130 when it is installed.
Some treadmills are designed for persons with small feet. The Precor easily supports large feet. Many treadmills will cause back pain if used for long periods but after 10-years of using this unit every day for 1-2 Hours I experienced no body or joint pain anywhere. This previous statement cannot be confirmed for any of the other treadmills I tried over the years, especially the units in most hotels and franchised health clubs.
The equipment come fully assembled and ready to use. Treadmill is professionally delivered and set up for user. Instructions for full operation are provided and operating it is very simple. Programs are available to automatically adjust speed and incline. I like the power incline feature, high quality materials and display screen to show incline, speed, and calories burned. But the cost is fairly high. And I would like display screen to support videos or movies that could be displayed while performing the exercise. Also would be good to have input for media stick. Headphone jacks could be useful.
It lets me exercise setting the speed that I want to go or raise the tilt of the machine so I can go as much uphill that I would like to go to maximize my workout. I had the store that I bought my treadmill set up the treadmill for me as I have great difficulty in putting things together. Once the set up was complete the technician explained all the things I would need to do to get it to work. Overall, it's good for my health. Although adding a stand so that I can read a book while I exercise would be an improvement.
I like that my Precor treadmill lifted for uphill walking. It had different inclines you could use. You could hook in head phones and just go to town. Also the graphics were very good on this machine and it spoke to you. It was all one piece and large. Was fun to use. Operating was pretty much self explanatory. The manual was very thick and I was hoping I didn't have to read the whole thing so I was glad it was so easy to operate. However, there was no putting the treadmill away. It would have been nice if it folded up for storage. I didn't have a lot of room in my house so I had to have it in my garage. Would have liked to put it in my living room and put it in my closet.
My Precor treadmill is black and it looks nice with my home - it is not an eye sore and it has a plug and a charger for my phone and it inclines fast rather than slow which I like a lot compared to other treadmills. But mine is old and it is hard to fold up and unfold. I like to fold it up when I have company but I always have trouble getting it back to normal by myself and my dad has to do it for me because it's complicated and annoying. But it is very easy to use. You turn it on and use the buttons that say faster or slower or incline and decline. I think it's pretty easy so that's cool.
