Precor treadmills are one of the most reliable and flexible machines on the market today. Having the ability to add attachments and accessories like the heart monitor (not standard with this model) can keep your expenditures low to give you just the core aspects that you need in a treadmill. The bouncy surface keeps stress off of joints while still giving the resistance in the incline settings to get a workout to target areas. These areas under most duress are highlighted on a handy image to let you know what you're working out! Two cup holders maximize your drink/remote storing facilities, while not interfering with comfortable molded handgrips. Cons can be noise issues when on higher speeds or when under the duress of a larger person. This is a perfect machine for a communal gym, as it can store information for up to four different users, creating a personal profile for each to maximize your success!
