Established in 1980, Precor has been around for a while now and during their tenure they’ve created a wide variety of treadmills. Precor has risen to become one of the leaders in fitness equipment manufacturing because of their intuitive and durable designs. You can’t really go wrong with any Precor treadmill, but that doesn’t mean that they’re all interchangeable. We’ll give quick reviews of each of Precor’s most popular treadmill models and you can decide which one is right for you.
Precor C954i Treadmill
This is what many would describe as the original modern Precor treadmill. The Precor C954i is a heavy-duty machine that still offers the same smooth workout you find in more recent treadmills. It has a 3.2 horsepower motor and comes integrated with Precor’s trademark Footplant Technology and Ground Effect impact control system. This is a hard model to find due to its age but if you find a commercial grade model, with a little work it can still be a great unit for light home use.

Precor C956i Treadmill
The Precor C956i treadmill was the sequel to Precor’s flagship commercial treadmill a while back. Due to its durability though, you will still be able to find it in many health clubs and fitness facilities across the country. Although it may not look as technologically advanced as some of the newer models, all the necessary functions are there. The Precor C956i comes equipped with the ability to change the speed, incline and running time. The built-in console also displays time, speed, distance, incline, minutes per mile.
