Recently, Precor has made huge efforts to diversify their treadmill offering. Not only do they continue to refine and perfect the highly rated Experience series treadmill (completely revamped in 2014), they have also become an authorized dealer of Assault Fitness’ non-motorized treadmill and designed a treadmill specifically for interval training to add to their portfolio.
Let’s review the high points of each treadmill variety we offer through our partnership with Precor:
The Assault AirRunner
The AirRunner is a premier elite fitness running machine that packs an intense workout into a small package. The name says it all - it’s like running on air, but with a powerful amount of punch.
• Non-Motorized and Easy to Move
The Assault AirRunner runs on the exerciser’s energy, with no electrical consumption and a low carbon footprint. Your exercisers will be amazed at what a hardcore workout can come from the power of their own two feet. The AirRunner is one of the lightest treadmills of its kind, weighing in at only 280 lb / 127 kg. Its light weight combined with a built-in handle and integrated transport wheels make it easy to quickly reconfigure your workout space.
• Keeps Interval Training Fresh
The AirRunner was designed with HIIT in mind. With no maximum speed, exercisers can push their workout as hard as they want and change speeds at will. With the small footprint of the AirRunner, running that would otherwise take place outside or in a different area of the facility can now take place in the same area that small group training occurs, increasing exerciser engagement with trainers. The AirRunner can be easily integrated into Queenax™ functional circuit training.
• Sturdy and Durable
Built with a steel frame and handrails, corrosion resistant hardware, and a slatted running surface for superb strength and durability, the Assault AirRunner is built to last. Plus, with no drive motor and no lift motor, the AirRunner requires very little maintenance.
The 731 Interval Treadmill
The TRM 731 Interval Treadmill offers operators the ability to conduct small-group interval training on treadmills. As instructed, the exerciser can change the interval intensity using the one-touch speed and incline keys. Whether instructor-led or on their own, the exerciser can dynamically adapt their interval workout, making it fun and engaging.
• Built to Commercial Standards at a Very Attractive Price
The insight driven design of the 700 Line Treadmill delivers the same reliability, performance, and efficiency that Precor is known for, at a budget-friendly price. Built for high-use on our commercial platform, this treadmill sacrifices nothing in longevity, standing up to the high usage in your facility - making it a money-saving valuable investment.
• Reliable, Efficient and Easy to Maintain
The motor drive system has improved internal cooling, a wider operating range, unique input current averaging to identify more precisely when a running belt requires replacement, and an Active Status Light that alerts facility staff at a glance to the operating status of the treadmill. All of this works together to help you increase operational efficiencies and protect your investment.
• P30i Interval Console
The simple, easy-to-use P30i Interval Console supports a get-on-and-go experience that gives operators the ability to offer group interval training on the 700 Line Treadmill. At any time during the workout, the exerciser can change the interval intensity using one-touch speed and incline keys. For added convenience, there are three interval settings that allow the exerciser to quickly program and save low, medium, and high intensity interval levels. Once saved, the exerciser simply presses one of the three keys to transition to the saved speed and incline level.
The 800 Line Experience Series Treadmill
Redesigned in 2014, this treadmill utilizes groundbreaking technology to ensure user safety, comfort, and satisfaction. With a choice of three console options, including the engaging and intuitive 880 Line touchscreen, this has become Precor’s most versatile treadmill offering to date. The Experience Series cardio line gives operators the proven, reliable performance they count on. Each piece delivers the personalized exercise experience and entertainment choices their members seek.
• Reliable, Efficient and Easy to Maintain
The motor drive system improves performance, efficiency, and reliability through redesigned Power Factor Correction, improved internal cooling, a wider operating range, unique input current averaging to identify more precisely when a running belt requires replacement, and an Active Status Light that alerts facility staff at a glance to the operating status of the treadmill.
• Integrated Footplant Technology
The IFT system takes one simple fact into account: When you run, the speed of your foot changes. Precor treadmills with IFT recognize this change in speed when your foot strikes the belt and adjust to match every stride, resulting in a smooth, fluid feel that enhances the workout experience.
• Ground Effects®
This technology overcomes a crucial treadmill problem: How to engineer a running surface that’s solid enough to provide maximum stability and pliable enough to absorb high-impact motion. Precor analyzed the problem and redefined high-impact running as a low-impact sport that didn’t have to sacrifice stability or speed. Result: Patented treadmill design that outperforms a natural running surface.
• Interchangeable Consoles
Precor’s expanded range of ergonomic and intuitive consoles ensures the treadmill experience you offer exercisers is tailored to the needs of your facility. Click here to explore the full lineup of available console options.
What could this do for your facility?
Each of these options are outstanding on their own, but together they are even better. Consider combining two or all three treadmills categories in your facility to appeal to a wider audience of exercisers. This is a prime opportunity to use Precor’s strength in innovation and exceptional design to your greatest advantage.
