Precor’s premier treadmill, the 966i Experience Series appeals to professional trainers and novices alike, with its quiet motor, smooth rollers, and extensive workout programs. It features a durable running deck made from exceptionally sturdy Slikdeck material that requires no lubrication and can be flipped – doubling the life-span of the deck. Also, the 966i Experience Series employs a convenient “Cord Management System”, keeping bothersome wiring underneath the frame and out of the way, and the touch-sensitive monitor switches are more reliable and result in fewer repairs.
By allowing you to alter your motion at the slightest whim of your imagination, no two workouts have to feel the same. Choose your movement and change it as often as your heart and mind desire. Adaptive motion helps create new possibilities and rewards.
Adjustable Stride Length
Naturally adjust stride length from 0 to 27 inches to match your desired workout without the need to control settings. As you move, the Stride Dial graphic helps you see the adjustable stride to determine your active muscle groups. The pendulum-like swing of the monitor moves with the foot pedals. Note that you get a higher calorie burn with longer strides.
Dual Plane Resistance
A patented low-impact system applies resistance to both horizontal and vertical planes of motion, adding another dimension to your workout and increasing your calorie burn compared to other fitness machines. Contralateral arm movement ensures your arm and leg movements are coordinated to produce the most natural motion.
