For those looking to increase their fitness level, but who don’t have the time or money to invest in a gym, a home treadmill is a budget and time friendly option. Precor makes club-quality treadmills for home use, and the 9.23 is a great entry-level treadmill to start with.
Features at a glance:
The Precor 9.23 is a top-notch treadmill that has many features to recommend it, including its outstanding power, smooth and quiet operation, and durable construction.
The cushioning and support system of the Precor 9.23 are head and shoulders above the competition with its impact control technology designed to minimize fatigue and prevent injuries through the reduction of joint stress.
The 9.23 also has high-end shock absorbers to minimize impact, along with a stable rear pivot point for an easy push-off. One nifty feature is the stride support technology, which senses changes in the user’s stride, adjusting the belt speed accordingly.
Though it’s touted as a “no frills treadmill”, the Precor 9.23 has plenty of extras which make a workout that much more effective. A touch-activated heart rate monitor tracks the user’s heart rate in order to maintain levels in a pre-set target zone.
There are 6 preset programs, and with speed levels from 0.5 to 12mph, along with an incline option to a 15% grade, there is more than enough to keep even the most dedicated runner challenged. The user-friendly console provides up-to-date readouts of pertinent information including calories burned, targeted heart rate, pace, distance, and time.
Precor 9.23′s quiet, hardworking 3 HP motor offers both power and performance at all speeds, and is continuously cooled with a constant-speed fan to prevent overheating. In terms of maintenance, the 9.23 is virtually worry free, with a self-lubricating reversible belt to extend the already long life of the machine.
Precor also offers an industry-leading five-year warranty on all parts, along with a one-year warranty for labor. The roomy belt, the same size as commercial treadmills, offers a generous running surface, and is PVC coated for a non-slip surface. For added safety, a magnetic safety clip turns off the power and allows the machine to coast to a stop. The 9.23′s powder-coated, sturdy steel frame is rated up to 350lbs., and comes backed with a lifetime warranty.
