It’s very easy to get excited about bonus features like mp3 docks, surround sound, the revolutionary iFit and more, but when it comes to essentials you need a treadmill that is A) powerful B) stable and C) durable.
The Precor 9.23 answer all of the above with a powerful (3.0 CHP motor), large running surface (20″ x 57″), phenolic laminated deck and durable steel drive.
Precor has continued to focus on the performance of their treadmills, ignoring a lot of electronic extras, in the hope that consumers will prefer something that is durable over technologically advanced.

Precor prides itself with the 9.23 as being an exceptionally durable, low-impact treadmill with all the must-have features.
The advanced heart rate monitoring system ensures that users stay in their target zone while an intuitive console displays additional workout metrics including heart rate, time, duration and calories burned.
Parents will love the added safety features (for children and guests) while individuals of any age will appreciate the diagnostic system where users can set their age, weight, interval speeds and incline.
Exceptional detail is a must for Precor and its shows on the 9.23 with subtle touches like the power-coating process (added cosmetic topcoat and durability to the frame) and reversible laminated deck doubling the life of the Precor 9.23.
Six workout programs are included on the Precor 9.23, along with the option to design your own workout by combining different features on the treadmill.
Engage in a fun run, simulate climbing hills, walk your way to your fitness goals, lose weight or mix it up with an integrated mix of speed, incline and program options.
Specifically set up a heart exercise program utilizing the handgrip sensors which display target information through the red-LED six window console.
The treadmill is not compatible with iFit Live and the pre-defined workout variety is modest, one big knock on the Precor 9.23.
Precor 9.23 contains additional features that help you work through your fitness routine, including an accessory tray that provides a handy spot to set water bottles, mp3s and reading material.
The integrated fan keeps you cool while exercising and QuickStart begins your workout with the single touch of a button.
A lot of the focus has went to the frame and deck on the Precor 9.23, which features a double laminated deck and little maintenance after purchase.
The Ground Effects Impact Control Cushioning system is designed to put less stress on back, knees, and joints. Shock absorbers at the front of the deck offer extra cushioning to absorb impact, while a pivot point in the back supports a full range-of-motion and provides a solid surface, but with some give, for an easy push off.
Stride Support technology senses the changes in your stride velocity and adjusts the belt speed up to 57 times a second at 12 mph.
