It can be hard to replicate that in-gym workout experience form the comfort of your own home. This is often what puts people off trying to work out at all. Perhaps that’s your problem? You can’t workout at the gym because you don’t have the time to spare in your day-to-day schedule, but also have found that exercise machines are not always adaptable enough to your needs. The Precor AMT 835 with Open Stride is one piece of equipment you may want to invest in.
What can the AMT offer that’s different from other machines? Well as just a teaser, we’ll point out that the AMT stands for Adaptive Motion Trainer. Note the word adaptive right there in the name. what does this mean for the kind of experience you can get from it? In the following review we will discuss some of the key features and why we think you should give it some serious consideration.
The fact that Precor have a mission statement that proclaims that they want ‘Fitness Made Personal’ through their exercise machines, suggests a lot about their intent in the design and manufacturing of products like the AMT 835. From their inception as a company, more than 30 years ago, they have always strived to develop health and fitness equipment that help their users live the kind of lives they really want to.
Their machines have always been synonymous with words like ergonomic, scientific proof and high-end engineering. They are always, in fact, looking to predict the needs of the different people their machines are catered to and always upgrading and improving them. This is evident in the AMT 835. A high-tech exercise machine that can be fully customized in more ways than many other machines to give a more thorough and intensely focused workout. Let’s see how with a look at a few of the key features.
Adaptive Motion Trainer and Open Stride
To start with we are going to focus on the Adaptive Motion technology at work in this machine. The Open Stride feature that offers an incredible versatility you just don’t get elsewhere. For instance, this feature allows you to adjust the height of the stride to anything between 6.8 and 10-inches. That may not sound very different from many of the ProForm machines we’ve featured on this site.
However, in addition to the stride height, you can also easily adjust the stride length too, between 0 and 36-inches. What does this mean for your experience using it? You have access to an almost infinite selection of stride paths that means you can target just about any combination of muscle groups at any one time. All while using the same piece of equipment.
Full Cardio Workout
Like many elliptical trainers, the Precor AMT 835 offers you a fully versatile and intense cardio workout. It combines running, walking, climbing and the movement of handlebars the handlebars. This means that you can further focus the attention of your workout on different muscles groups.
Like many other elliptical trainers from Precor and other manufacturers, the AMT 835 offers 20 resistance levels. So, in addition to the almost full body workout the other great features mentioned above of the AMT 835 provides, you can increase the difficulty of each stride and how much exertion is required to move.
Which is perfect if you are really trying to push your abilities and build your muscle up.
Bright and Clear P31 LED Console
Every great piece of exercise equipment needs a suitably great display unit. With the AMT 835, like others from the Experience Series from the company, you get the benefit of the easy to operate P31 LED console. As well as functioning as a central hub for all the controls you need, it also displays those all-important metrics.
- Stride length and height adjustable
- Fully body cardio workout
- Easy to control
- Prone to making a lot of noise after a while
- No fan
- No information available about the Led Console Screen Size
Well, the straight answer is no for all the questions. I it not foldable or compact. And it weighs more than 400 pounds. It is was not manufactured with mobility in mind, this is a great quality trainer, but “she” prefers to be stationary in its place.
No, the AMT is self powered, you generate the power as you workout.
No, it comes fully assembled. Usually the delivery service will not deliver where you want it inside the house, they will leave it at your front door. You will have to pay extra if you want a “room of choice” delivery
Probably you need to generate power. As the machine is self powered, it needs your energy to power up the battery that feeds the computer.
This is most definitely not for those reading this with tight budgets. However, if you can afford the high-ticket price, you will richly be rewarded with an exercise machine that is anything buy your average cross trainer or elliptical. Be warned, this is as addictive as it is punishing!
