Precor AMT 100i Elliptical Crosstrainer Review

Precor 100i – Adaptive Motion Trainer
AMT 100i

Precor has raised the Fitness Bar up a notch with the all new Precor AMT Elliptical Cross-Trainer. The Precor AMT takes elliptical training to an all-new level. The Precor AMT makes use of the user’s natural body motion to adjust the stride length and motion without the user needing making any adjustments to the machine.

With the dual action arms the Precor AMT Elliptical offers total control of upper body and lower body resistance, providing a customized workout. For the first time the Precor AMT Elliptical gives the user the immediacy, variety, and natural feeling of running outdoors and allows you to customize your stride length and resistance at any time during the work out.

What makes the Precor AMT 100i so popular is the ability for the user to alter their work-out at their slightest whim, no two work-outs are ever the same. This keeps your mind engaged and your body torn between wanting to experiment with new movements and needing a second to catch your breath.

Precor AMT 100i Features Summary:

  • Unique commercial-quality cardio and muscle toning trainer allows you to adapt to your movement on the fly
  • Contra lateral arm movement for natural motion reflecting the way you naturally move
  • 0- to 27-inch stride length; 4 programs including fat burner, heart rate control, interval and manual
  • Handheld heart rate monitoring with compatibility for wireless monitors
  • 350-pound maximum user weight

Precor AMT Customer Review:

I took the plunge and bought this trainer for my home gym. I have tried numerous machines and found that most ellipticals have a few drawbacks. They are great for reducing impact, compared to a treadmill, but usually constrain movement to a fixed motion. Other than being able to vary the stride length a couple of inches on a few models, they all have exactly the same motion, over and over. It was difficult to find one that fit my gait, and at the same time be suitable for my wife who is only 5 feet tall. Actually impossible would be a better description.

This machine is unique, and should be in its own class of truly variable elliptical training. The stride can be ANYTHING you make it; from stepping to full running gait to a pedaling stride. It even allows a backward pedal stride if you want to really mix up the routine. The machine doesn’t control the gait. You do, and you can vary it any time without touching any electronic controls. You’ll need to try it to really understand.

Very highly recommended!

Life Fitness Equipment

Life Fitness LifeCycleLife Fitness Equipment

In 1968, the Brunswick Corporation purchased a new division called LifeCycle, which was later changed to Life Fitness. Mastermind Keene P. Dimck was the person that created the Life Fitness Company. Now, it the most trusted name in treadmills, ellipticals, exercise bikes and strength equipment manufacturer in the world. The name Life Fitness stands for strong, heavy duty, durable and low maintenance home and commercial fitness equipment.

Later, Life Fitness was purchased by Bally Manufacturing Corporation. Very soon after that, Life Fitness rose to the top of the fitness equipment industry. Life Fitness has over 1,700 employees with 12 international subsidiaries and manufacturing warehouses worldwide.

They also have over 186 dealers and distributors in over 120 countries. To date, they have more than 300 different cardio and strength fitness products for both the home and commercial line. Life Fitness also holds 50 patents in the United States, making them one of the world leaders in fitness equipment manufacturing.

 

HammerStrengthHammer Strength

Acquired by Life Fitness in 1990, there are over 80 different commercial exercise machines in the Hammer Strength product line up, designed for the user to load and unload weight plates. This gives the user more control and safety which is lessened with free weights. Proper form is not always correct with free weights limiting results. Hammer Strength equipment insures proper form and makes the exercise more comfortable.

A few years later Life Fitness extended the same motion technology of its revolutionary plate loaded machines to its “Motion Technology Selectorized Equipment Line”, called Hammer Strength MTS.

Hammer Strength MTS incorporates the same biomechanical integrity of the plate loaded products, but with the ease and convenience of selectorized weight stacks.

Differences: Life Fitness 9500HR, Next Generation & 91xi Elliptical Cross Trainers Compared

Life Fitness 9500HR Next Gen Treadmill

Life Fitness 9500HR Next Gen Treadmill

We have been asked by our customers – what are the differences between the Life Fitness 9500HR (Classic), 9500HR Next Generation (Next Gen) and 91xi elliptical cross trainers? They are all essentially the same type of exercise machine with some differences.

The Life Fitness 9500HR Next Gen has a different console and more features than the classic 9500HR. The Life Fitness 91xi is the newest model in the series, but essentially the only difference is the color (black and gray vs. gray tones).

Another important difference is the ages of the machines which affect the price of each of the models. The older the machine, the cheaper the price.

All of these ellipticals are commercial grade machines, meant to be used for several hours a day in a gym and to be well functioning for years. They are very reliable thus are popular in all types of fitness centers.
