Reviews of Precor AMT100i Adaptive Motion Trainer

Review 1: Best training machine I have ever used

For the past 20 years, I have used ellipticals, treadmills, Steppers, etc.

The Precor AMT is by far the most demanding machine I have ever used.

It is nice to change the motion on the fly, breaks up the rhythm.

I love it, I plan to used it every night, after work.

Review 2: Far and away the best cardio machine in existence

Far and away the best cardio machine in existence. Precor AMT100i combines elliptical, stair master, and ski machine all in one. You can move it circularly like an elliptical, up and down only like stairs, or back and forth only like ski machines.

WARNING: If you’ve never used one of these but you have used an elliptical before, you might get discouraged when you try this. Your muscle memory from ellipticals will move your body in a way that works against the motion this machine is designed for. This machine has more of a running pattern like a treadmill, while elliptical motions are more circular and more closely resemble cycle machines than treadmills. If you use ellipticals often, this machine WILL feel weird and difficult at first. Once you break your muscle memory habits, it’ll come more naturally and give you a far superior workout than any elliptical ever could.

ANOTHER WARNING: If you’re short, watch your elbows. The arms of this thing could have been designed a little better (wider or lower). I whacked my elbows on them dozens of times per session when I first starting using it before I got used to tucking in much more tightly. I’m thin, so if you’re on the heavy side AND short, you might not have room to tuck in so tightly and thus may have difficulty avoiding an elbow punishing.

Review 3: Never Gets Old…

I have been using this Precor AMT100i machine at a nearby gym for the last year or so. I really like this trainer for a variety of reasons. If you have trouble with running workouts (treadmills, etc.), this machine might make working out much more manageable. There is lots of customization within the machine to change your workout as you progress.

The one thing you want to look for in a machine before you invest is, will I plateau with this machine? With this machine, the answer is no. Over the last year this machine has kept changing enough for me to constantly feel challenged with a new workout, whenever I’m ready.

I like this machine over a typical ‘elliptical’, because it offers more in terms of exercises and comfort. The biggest complaint I hear from others about ellipticals is that you have a small stride or it just doesn’t feel right. With this machine I’m able to get a fuller and more natural size stride. In my experience, this machine is much better than some of the top ellipticals out there (and I have tried several at the local gym).

You can adjust the level of resistance to simulate various real world obstacles and really challenge yourself. You can also use this machine like a stair climber and it works great in that respect. The hand grips give you lots of good feedback on how your body is reacting to your exercise; heart rate, pulse, etc.

Overall, I really enjoy using the Precor AMT100i. Great workout, good experience, and constantly keeps offering a different and challenging workout.
