Precor AMT 733 Review and Specifications:
If you are in need of a high quality home fitness exercise machine like a personal elliptical cross trainer, you know that space and storage of the machine is always going to be an issue. This is where the Precor AMT 700 Line is perfect for in-home use as each model provides a well designed frame that is space-saving and can be moved around your home with relative ease. The AMT 733 measures out at a length of 80”, is 35” wide, and 69” tall, and weighs in at a total weight of 412 lbs.
The Precor AMT 733 is an at-home elliptical machine that is made for users of all shapes and sizes with a suggested manufacturer’s weight capacity of up to 350 lbs, along with the fully adjustable stride length which allow users of almost any height to use the AMT 733 with comfort and ease. Unlike the AMT 800 Line which comes with Open Stride Technology, the AMT 700 Line has a fixed stride height, which means the AMT 700 series is limited in its flexibility in terms of stride height. The AMT 700 Line, as with most at-home elliptical cross-trainers, is not foldable which means that users should definitely clear a space in their house that can be dedicated to the machine even when it is not in use. The AMT 733 also needs 30” of clearance to get through standard sized doorways and at least 36” in the location that it is to be installed and used.
The power supply that is required for the AMT 733 is a standard 120V/15 A circuit with power cord, but just like the Precor AMT 835, the AMT 733 is self-powered without a constant need to be plugged into an outlet. The Precor AMT 733 comes with built in full-range wheels which makes moving the full 412 lbs around the house an easy task. The AMT 733 truly is a fully functional fitness club quality machine that is built and designed completely for at-home usage with the safety and convenience of the user in mind.
Precor AMT 733 Review of the Monitor:
The main difference between the three models that are available in the Precor AMT 700 Line of home elliptical machines is the monitor and console that each model comes equipped with. The AMT 733 is the entry level model in the AMT 700 Line and so it comes equipped with the P30 Advanced LED Display Console that can be used to fully track and manage their workouts. The P30 LED Display Console comes with six pre-programmed workouts in as many as eight different languages, illustrating just how much the AMT 700 Line is a global leader in personal fitness.
The P30 LED Display Console comes with up to eighteen different and unique electronic readouts which include many of the standard metrics that users track such as user heart rate, time elapsed, and the total calories burned. The numeric keypad that comes on the console is extremely responsive and easy to use, especially when trying to change an option or setting in the middle of an intense workout. The AMT 700 Line is fully CSAFE compatible and conveniently placed channel and volume control buttons make being entertained while working out as simple as pushing a button.
The Precor AMT 733 P30 LED Display Console comes fully equipped with six pre-set programs including manual, heart rate, and weight loss. There is no screen that comes with the entry-level AMT 733, although users can add on an optional 15.6” screen as an additional accessory. As with most of Precor’s entry level fitness machines, there is no WiFi or Bluetooth connectivity available.
Precor AMT 733 Stride and Incline
The AMT 700 Line comes with Precor’s patented Adaptive Motion technology which is a huge part of what sets this line of fitness machines apart from other home elliptical trainers or cross-trainers. The AMT 733 model comes with fully adjustable stride length which measures between 0 to 36” which allows users to customize their stride to the intensity of their workout. Another safe and effective feature with the AMT 700 Line is that the machines all provide a nice responsive and stable feel, as users always feel in control of their movements.
The stride height on the Precor AMT 700 Line is actually a fixed height and does not allow the same flexibility that we can find in the AMT 800 Line which uses Precor’s patented Open Stride Technology. The step-up height for the Precor AMT 733 measures in at a fixed 6.5” off of the ground which ensures that users can safely step onto and off of the machine with confidence.
The trademark of the Precor brand is the Precor Stride Dial which comes included on every AMT 733 machine. The Precor Stride Dial gives users the ability to see which muscle groups are being worked in real time, depending on which type of exercise they are doing. The stride and step motions on the Precor AMT 7333 can be ramped up in intensity, also in real time, from a walking exercise into a stepping exercise that may simulate inclined terrain like walking up hills or stairs.
Precor AMT 733 Handlebar and Pedals
The Precor AMT 733 offers Precor’s trademark of three unique handlebar locations which each provide ample support and stability while exercising in different ways. The standard and most often utilized set of handlebars run parallel to the ground so that users can safely engage in less impactful workouts. An additional set of smooth, full motion handlebars can be used with the strides in a classic elliptical motion. The final set of handlebars sit directly in front of the P30 LED Display Console, and this is where users can find the built-in polar contact heart rate sensor. These polar contact heart rate sensors provide users with heart rate zones and specific metrics such as the total calories burned in real time while they exercise and are meant to be used in conjunction with the heart rate telemetry reading chest strap.
The Precor AMT 733 handlebars are built with a sturdy plastic that makes it comfortable and simple for users to grip, even with sweaty hands during intense exercise sessions. Each set of handlebars on the Precor AMT 733 is ergonomically positioned to let users feel in control of their motions while they engage in their various workouts. The handlebars feel natural in their positioning and add another layer of safety and stability for the users while they exercise.
The Precor AMT 733 pedals are made of hard plastic and allow the user to remain fully in control of their motions during their workouts. To ensure that your feet do not slip off of the pedal while in the middle of a workout, the Precor AMT 733 pedals are equipped with toe caps that you can place your shoes into as you exercise. The foot pedals on the Precor AMT 733 measure in at 14” x 8” with a 2” minimum space between the pedals.
AMT 733 Accessories and Assembly
The Precor AMT 733, like most Precor fitness machines, comes with a long list of accessories as standard additions which include a water bottle holder to help users sure stay hydrated while exercising, as well as a sturdy reading rack which can hold either books or any other personal device. The optional PVS or personal viewing screen that is available for the Precor AMT 733 model, is only for this entry level model as the AMT 763 and AMT 783 come with an LCD Capacitive Touchscreen Console.
The conveniently located reading rack is built right into the Precor AMT 733 console and is useful for holding anything from a book to a tablet to a mobile phone while the user is engaged in a workout. The Precor AMT 733 line also comes fully equipped with a built-in mobile device charging but unfortunately does not come with WiFi or Bluetooth connectivity for users to connect their personal devices to. There is the add-on 15.6” entertainment screen that can be purchased separately if users are determined to watch something while they workout.
As with a majority of at-home exercise machines, the Precor AMT 733 does require some assembly but most of this can be accomplished with a couple of screwdrivers, some sockets, and a torque wrench. Before assembling the AMT 733 in its final resting spot, it is relatively easy to wheel the machine around your house with its built in wheels, and actually makes moving the entire 412 lb machine easier than one would think. With the Precor AMT 733 is on a nice level surface, users can begin to assemble the parts one by one. While one person can technically build the AMT 733, it is a much easier task with a second person, especially when moving the AMT 733 around the house. Precor does offer helpful step by step assembly in its user manual, and users can also find videos of the assembly online.
AMT 733 Warranty, Price, and Shipping
Precor provides the same excellent manufacturer’s warranty for the AMT 700 Line as the AMT 800 Line which truly shows just how much the company believes in the quality of its equipment. For the Precor AMT 700 Line, Precor offers a lifetime warranty on the frame and welds, a 10-year warranty for parts and wear items, a nice 3-year warrant for the console, as well as a 1-year warranty for labor. These warranties are based on in-home use and not for Precor AMT machines that are in commercial settings like gyms or fitness centers.
Precor is extremely accessible to its customers as well if you do find you have some questions about its product or services. The Washington State-based company offers its customers several toll free numbers to contact customer service with, as well as an email system that allows users to send them any questions, comments, or concerns they may have. Precor is also easy to find on social media with a presence on such platforms as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and YouTube.
Users should note that the Precor AMT 700 Line of fitness machines will come delivered inside of a shipping container. The frame of the Precor AMT 733 is the main piece that can be removed and wheeled around the house, while all of the other various parts can be unpacked and installed on the AMT 733, once a final destination for the machine has been chosen. For one of the best brands in the industry you are going to expect to pay a good amount and the Precor AMT 700 is no exception to this.
