Gone are the days when consoles on exercise machines simply meant you could choose between a few pre-programmed workouts. The sophisticated consoles offered on modern fitness machines play a critical role in helping you reach your exercise goals. One brand that sets a high standard is Precor, especially with their 3 Series consoles. These devices help you better enjoy your time exercising, customize your workout, track your progress and reach your goals faster.
Here are some exciting features of the 3 Series consoles:
Your heart rate matters! Make use of the Heart Rate Health course, an intermediate level heart rate workout, which changes intervals between your ideal fat burning HR zone and your ideal cardiovascular training HR zone throughout the workout.
Get your optimum workout. The Personal Best feature is a motivational tool that helps you improve your fitness levels each time you hop on the machine and ensures that you’re on target to achieving your goals. This feature is available on both the 9.33 and 9.35.
Take it in stride. By selecting the Pace option on the 9.35 console you can set the treadmill’s speed based on desired pace rather than MPH. This forces the machine to be more accurate in its speed settings to include increments of 1/100 of an MPH. This is ideal for any long-distance runners.
Move it to lose it with the Weight Loss Course. A 28-minute beginners workout, this workout is based on the recommendations of the renowned Cooper Institute of Aerobic Research. Unlike workouts on other machines, this workout doesn’t require the use of a HR monitor.
Know your fitness level with the Fitness Test workout. This program takes the user through increasing intensity, up to 15 minutes long. Once the user reaches 85% of their theoretical maximum heart rate, the test will stop and the user will be given a score correlating to their overall fitness level.
Sweat it out with the Aerobic Endurance workout. After a warm-up, the user is pushed to maintain a recommended pace of 140 strides per minute as the machine increases CrossRamp inclines and resistance.
