            The Conclusion

            Precor is known for fitness innovation as the inventor of the elliptical trainer, and has since changed the fitness industry again with its world renowned Adaptive Motion Trainer with Open Stride Technology. The Precor AMT 835 with Open Stride Adaptive Motion Trainer fits a wide distribution of exercisers with an infinite range of stride paths to create a uniquely effective low-impact workout, making every workout a personalized experience. The user defined stride of the Precor AMT 835 is comparable to a treadmill, stepper, and an elliptical all in one machine that offers workouts unlike any other. This piece of equipment allows users to create a variety of strides through switching from walking, running, and climbing spontaneously.

            I love that the AMT 835 provides the opportunity for users to gain a high caloric burn, while giving them a lower level of perceived exertion. Exercisers will be able to work out longer, harder, and achieve better results. This will ultimately improve one’s fitness level as well as help with weight loss through calorie burn.

            In my own personal experience; I have not suffered from any serious injuries, but when I would run on treadmills I would frequently experience a burning sensation in both of my shins. The shin pain would only occur on treadmills, but when I would play sports my shins would feel fine. After a while, I grew tired of having those pains in my shins, and just fully relied on getting my cardio exercise through sports.

            While working out on the AMT, I felt great. I am usually not into using machines for cardio exercise, but I enjoyed the AMT. I did not have any restrictions while on this machine. I enjoyed the long strides, because it was like I was running but without the high impact on my joints. When I grew tired I would shorten my strides as opposed to stopping completely like I do when I am running on the treadmill or playing sports. In a few minutes on the AMT, I could feel my muscles working. I burned over 50 calories just in 4 minutes. That is equivalent to running or jogging 6 miles per hour for 5 minutes. Throughout my workout and afterward I was surprised that I didn’t experience any shin pains although the motion I use on the treadmill to run and the motion I was using on the Adaptive Motion Trainer seemed very similar, except on the AMT there was no impact of my foot repeatedly striking the surface as it would on a treadmill.

            The Precor Adaptive Motion Trainer is an investment in your health and fitness, and I believe this type of investment is worthwhile if it keeps your body and mind healthy and strong. The Precor AMT value exceeds the price in my opinion because of the versatility of the machine, the performance over time, and the ability for the user to exercise and not gain the joint pain associated with many weight bearing cardiovascular machines.

            Overall, I believe the AMT 835 is an excellent piece of fitness equipment and I would recommend it above any other cardiovascular workout. This piece of equipment can be used by fitness beginners to personal trainers to accomplish a great workout!
