The new Precor AMT® 835 is a unique type of elliptical machine. AMT stands for Adaptive Motion Trainer. It is a stepper, treadmill, and elliptical in one. You can adjust your stride without touching any controls, using Precor’s Open Stride which provides you with an infinite range of stride paths (0 to 36 inches). Handheld arms allow you to workout both upper and lower body, while on the machine for a total body workout.

The Stride Dial™ visually shows you the stride length to determine which muscle groups are being worked. As stride length changes, the Stride Dial updates real-time. The AMT 835 is self powered, so it does not require an electrical outlet. Stride height and resistance can be controlled by easy to use toggle switches. Simple controls and easy to read LED console which will be familiar to those who use Precor equipment in the gym. This is a commercial model, so it is rugged and built to last, with a 10 years parts warranty. Accessories holders are included for water bottle, reading communication devices (tablets) and portable music players.
