8 Treadmills: The Precor 9.27 vs The Life Fitness F1

In a world where elliptical machines are taking over, some would wonder why treadmills are still around, but the fact is that some users who are new to exercising are put off by intimidating elliptical machines, and there are runners who still prefer to run on a flat surface. The people at Precor are aware of this and continue to produce quality machines such as the Precor 9.27.

The Precor 9.27
This treadmill comes with a 3.0 HP continuous duty motor, 0-15% incline, 10 workouts and multi-zone shock absorption to reduce impact on the user’s feet and joints.
Another thing that Precor was concerned about is the bulkiness of most treadmills, so they slimmed their design down to create a smaller footprint than most treadmills, but retained a 350lb user capacity on top of its 238lb sleek frame. Coupled with a lifetime warranty on the frame, 10 years on parts and 1 year on labor, this treadmill is a great buy for runners and walkers alike.

The Life Fitness F1
The Life Fitness F1 Smart Treadmill is definitely a feature-packed quality treadmill for any user. First is the FlexDeck Shock Absorption system, which reduces the amount of shock your joints will endure. There is also the energy saver feature, which lowers energy use by 90%. With the Life Fitness F1, the user can create custom workouts on the Life Fitness website, then transfer them to the machine via the USB port. The GoSystem Quick Start feature remembers your preset speeds, whether you are training at a walk, a jog or a run. One press of a button will access a suitable routine.

For those who love to workout with music, the iPod holder is located conveniently close to your fingertips so exercising never has to stop. Plus the LifeFitness F1 folds up and stores more easily than most treadmills.
